21st Annual MSPCA-Angell Animal Hall of Fame Dinner to Honor Emmylou Harris
Additional Honorees Include BPD K9s, Teenage Advocate and Canine/Human Mountain Climbers
BOSTON ? The MPSCA-Angell will honor world renowned vocalist Emmylou Harris at the non-profit?s 21st Annual Animal Hall of Fame Dinner on October 16 at the JFK Library & Museum. Additional honorees will include the Boston Police Department?s K9 Unit (Animal Hero Award), Amanda MacDonald (Young Hero Award) and Tom Ryan and Atticus M. Finch (Human Hero Award).
?The heroes of 2008 represent all of the animal advocates, champions, and defenders who further the cause of kindness every day, all around us,? said MSPCA president carter Luke. ?We pay tribute to them on this special night.?
Since 1987, the MSPCA-Angell has gathered its supporters to promote compassion for animals by honoring those people and animals who uplift us through their extraordinary efforts and encourage us to follow their example. This year the MSPCA-Angell will be presenting its highest honor, the George T. Angell Humanitarian Award to Country Music singer Emmylou Harris for her tireless work in the field of animal welfare. Harris is a longtime supporter of animal welfare. She founded and assists at Bonaparte?s Retreat, a shelter in Nashville dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for the hardest-to-place animals.
The Animal Hero Award is presented to an animal who has saved the life of one or more humans or animals, or demonstrated remarkable bravery or loyalty. The Boston Police K9 Unit accomplishes all of these requirements daily and is dedicated to keeping Bostonians and visitors to the city safe.
The Human Hero Award is given every year for exceptional devotion, compassion, and bravery on behalf of people and animals. Tom Ryan and his dog, Atticus M. Finch chronicled their adventures hiking 66 of New Hampshire?s 4,000 foot peaks on their blog (www.tomandatticus.blogspot.com/). Through their online journal, Ryan recounted each hike and reflected on the unique relationship between humans and the animals in their lives.
The Young Hero Award is presented to a person under 18 who either through volunteer activities or an act of genuine kindness and compassion made a significant difference in the life of one or more animals. Amanda MacDonald collected hundreds of signatures to help the Greyhound Protection Act (www.protectdogs.org), to phase out dog racing in Massachusetts, become a ballot question in 2008.
The evening?s program includes a cocktail reception, seated dinner and awards ceremony including the presentation of the MSPCA-Angell's Hero Awards.
