The canine who raises the most for the animals will win the prestigious Golden Paw Award, while a feline will win the esteemed A-cat-emy Award! Prizes will also be awarded for Best Dressed, Silliest Pose, Most Loveable Face and Biggest Smile. It takes just a few minutes where your valuable time can make the world of a difference for these innocent animals. During the evening at the Golden Paw Gala, felines who participate will be featured via their photograph on the big screen, while canines may appear in person on stage or via photograph on the big screen. Sponsorship opportunities and donations are being accepted at the shelter. Proceeds benefit Heartland Animal Shelter, a no-kill humane organization dedicated to finding homeless animals their forever homes while educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets in order to decrease pet overpopulation.
