The Awards

The animal charity awards are a great opportunity to recognise the hard work and dedication put in by the teams and the individuals within the animal charity sector who have gone that extra mile to help rescue and rehome animals in need.

The three nomination categories are:
  • Animal Charity Team of the Year
  • Animal Charity Employee of the Year
  • Animal Charity Volunteer of the Year

Anyone can nominate outstanding charity teams or individuals, from pet owners and fellow charity staff and volunteers, to friends and family. Every nomination remains anonymous and all nominees will be sent certificates to recognise their dedication and achievements; a great way to boost morale!

If you think your charity has staff or volunteers who deserve to be recognised and thanked, nominate now, and promote the awards to your supporter network so that they can do the same!

Nominate now!
