Today I celebrate this honor and accept this award with a huge and heart felt thank you to those who helped me move that unmovable mountain and make the impossible possible ❤️ Thank you Frank Wisneski, Alison Hoffman, Sue Lehman, Missy Woodward, Kate McGuigan, Catherine Beckmann , Cathi Perez, the entire staff at the Leave No Paws Behind Veterinary Clinic and last but never least, the great folks at the West Covina Planning Department and the great city of West Covina ❤️ I could not have done it without all of you ❤️
I cannot begin to tell you how honored, humbled and excited I am to be chosen one of the 2021 Synchrony PILLAR PROJECT WINNERS! I found out I won in August however I was asked not to announce until THEY announced the winners today at their virtual LIVE convention! The prize package also comes with an amazing news media announcement and $10,000.00 check !
I won for developing and opening the Leave No Paws Behind Low Cost Veterinary Clinic in May of 2020 during a time when people needed help the most with their pets. I continued forward and opened the doors at the onset of the COVID Pandemic and we never looked back!
I created the clinic, not for the glory or awards, but because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of pets and their families everywhere because I believe no one should have to ever choose between life and death for their beloved pet OR surrender them to a shelter due to lack of funds for medical care ❤️
Again, I am so honored to be chosen a 2021 PILLAR and so grateful for the $10,000.00 prize to help us continue to help them ❤️ I had a dream that one day I would be able to help pets and their families stay together and out of the shelters and with the help and support of so many wonderful people, that dream is now a reality! I can think of no better way to celebrate LNPB 10 years of giving the gift of life and love then by accepting this award on behalf of all of our senior rescues. WE do what we do because we believe, no matter what, their life matters ❤️ tw, LNPB
