For the 11th year in a row Willamette Humane Society will host the Humaneitarian Awards honoring people doing positive work on behalf of animals in Marion and Polk Counties. The event is Tuesday, April 25 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Roth’s Fresh Market in West Salem. The public is invited to join us for this celebration.
As event hosts, we are changing things up this year. We are inviting local animal welfare organizations to participate by not just nominating candidates but by selecting their own winner. We will be doing the same. Willamette Humane Society will honor one staff member and one volunteer at the Humaneitarian Award event along with the winners from all other organizations.
We ask you to be part of the process. Between now and March 31st, you may nominate one or more volunteers or staff members. A selection committee will choose the winners based on the nominee write-ups so please make sure your nomination is as descriptive and complete as possible. All nominees will be notified. And the names of all nominees will be included in the program. The winners will be disclosed only at the event.
