President (APAW) Cindy Case received yet another award for her life-saving efforts for the homeless dogs and cats from the Amelia area at the 2015 Virginia Federation of Humane Societies (VFHS) annual conference. Cindy received the VFHS BRAVO award at the conference held in Fredricksburg on Friday, March 20th. The BRAVO award was established in 1992 by former VFHS President Elizabeth Sills to recognize an individual who has demonstrated a commitment of outstanding service to promote animal welfare, who has been instrumental in making an impact within an animal welfare organization, and who is a reflection of the values and standards set forth by the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies. The VFHS is a membership organization that was founded in 1959 with the primary goals of addressing the issues of animal cruelty and pet overpopulation within the Commonwealth of Virginia and to foster humane attitudes through education. Nominated by Amelia County Animal Control Officer Brian Wootton and selected by her peers in the animal rescue arena, Cindy was chosen because of her tireless and selfless dedication to saving the lives of lost, abandoned and stray pets. Congratulations Cindy! To adopt a new pet or help Cindy in her efforts, contact the Amelia County Animal Shelter at 561-3878 or amelianimalshelter@ameliacova.com.
