Dr. Els Animal Champion Award, 2009
The Cat Action Team celebrated a significant event in 2009, when our co-founder, Diane Minick, received the PEI Humane Society’s first annual Dr. Els Animal Champion Award. This award “recognizes people or pets that, through their actions, have contributed to animal welfare and have illustrated the human-animal bond.” Below, PEI Humane Society Board Member Janice Petley presents the award to Diane:
In 2010, the recipient was long-time CAT member and volunteer, Glenda Carver.
And in 2011, the Dr. Els Award went to Joy Tremblay, another founding member of CAT. Below, Joy poses with Janice Petley and Lisa Hashie of the PEI Humane Society.
