Each year, the NZCAC presents the Assisi Awards in "recognition of outstanding service to animals" to individuals who have contributed to the welfare of animals, whether in New Zealand or internationally.
The awards, named in honour of the Patron Saint of Animals, St Francis of Assisi, are an acknowledgement by the NZCAC of the achievements of those whose goals echo the principles of excellence in animal welfare.
If you know someone who has gone above and beyond in service to animals, please consider nominating them today.
For more information and guidance on how to submit your nomination, please visit the NZCAC website: http://www.nzcac.org.nz/nzcac/assisi-awards/about-the-awards
Nominations close Friday 20 July 2018 (5pm NZT).
