Karl Booker, the winner of the Petco Foundation’s 2017 Unsung Hero Award, from Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, GA, is a person who dedicates his life to saving animals and asks for nothing in return. And he is not alone. There are many Unsung Heroes around the country and now the Petco Foundation and Victoria Stilwell Positively are going to shine a light on the incredible work these heroes do and give back to the animal welfare organizations they work with.
Unsung Heroes is a heart-warming web series that highlights the animal welfare world by recognizing extraordinary individuals and the organizations they work with. Produced and presented by Stilwell, in partnership with the Petco Foundation, each episode tells the story of an Unsung Hero, showing their work and the animals they help. As a thank you, the Petco Foundation will make a donation to the organizations these heroes work with, in recognition for the commitment and dedication to helping animals in their communities. The series is heartwarming and uplifting, and by celebrating the people who often get overlooked, it shows the positive side of saving animal lives that is not often a focus. It provides viewers an insight into the lives of everyday people who care for animals and highlights just how special these animals are.
As a significant Petco Foundation partner, we invite you to nominate one or more individuals from your organization to be featured as an Unsung Hero. Please complete one form for each nomination.
