Founder's Letter

 

The Pet Philanthropy Circle’s mission is to save and enhance the quality of animal lives by promoting greater public awareness of their welfare and the causes that protect them.  We accomplish this through educational programs,  raising funds for qualified animal rescue organizations and the Pet Hero Awards.

 

Our Advisory Board Members are solely responsible for making nominations for the Pet Hero Awards. It is essential that this group be totally committed to our cause and willing to invest the time and/or financial commitment necessary to keep our awards program standards of excellence intact.

 

If you feel someone or an organization has made a significant contribution to animal welfare or you are willing to become a sponsor and make a financial contribution, contact us.

 

Looking forward to seeing you at the 6th Anniversary Pet Hero Awards. Join us and celebration of the excellence of these amazing people, organizations and pets.

 

    Sincerely yours,

    Jewel Morris

    CEO and Founder, Pet Philanthropy Circle
