Name: Patty Thomas
Name: Dori Henning
Organization helped: PeachState Animal Rescue Foundation, Inc
Reason for nomination: Dori may have just come onto the rescue scene in the last few years, but she has spent every day making up for what she missed. She has fostered countless animals, and on her own came up with our very own Puppy Nanny/Midwoof program. She saw the need for someone who could take puppies that were without mama, or mamas who were in horrible shape and too far to spay, and people that were desperate to keep their mama dog but could not handle her having puppies. Most of the mamas would be dropped at animal control, and most would be too far along to spay. Thru her program she agrees to keep the puppies and mama, vet everyone, and send mama home after spay and adopt out the puppies. This allows the family to keep their beloved dog without the stress of raising a litter, and it ensures EVERY oops animal is altered and in a wonderful home. Dori gives her time and efforts daily to the community both thru the Puppy Nanny program, and by being the main volunteer for our public low cost spay/neuter clinic. Dori also works with the public to be sure ALL feral/stray cats are put thru the TNR program, as an effort to stop overpopulation and sickness in cat colonies. Dori is selfless in the work she does, and deserves this recognition more than anyone else that I personally know! She has saved over 200 puppies by herself alone, along with several mama dogs.
