Phyllis Carter Award For Rescue Excellence

In memory of our dear friend and CARE volunteer for many years, Phyllis Carter, Citizens for Animal Rescue and Emergencies is offering the second annual award to an animal rescue in her name in the amount of $500 (cash or microchip scanner of equal value). CARE is aware that all animal rescue groups are deserving of this award, but only one rescue will be chosen from all the applications based upon answers given on a short questionnaire.

Criteria for the excellence award are as follows:

  • The animal rescue must be a registered 501(c) in good standing
  • Describe a “day in the life” of your animal rescue
  • Describe the rescue of an unfortunate animal who through love and commitment from your rescue group, went on to make an amazing recovery with a great ending.
  • Describe the one thing that makes your rescue group stand out in the community.
  • Describe how the award will be used within your rescue
  • Describe your vision for your rescue

The prior year winning rescue is eligible for this award again in two years. Applications will be accepted beginning June 13 until 5 p.m. on June 25, 2022.  The winner will be announced no later than June 30, 2022.

When you complete and submit the questionnaire form that follows, CARE’s email will be sent a notification of its submission. You don’t need to do anything further.

Feel free to include numbers in support of your application. The winner will be selected by a person selected by CARE but this person will not be affiliated with CARE or any other rescue group. An article of the winning rescue will appear in the next CARE newsletter.
