They kindly presented us with a Special Recognition award a few weeks ago. We were humbled when we received notification of this because we do this because we love it. The feeling we get when we are able to help in a small way to get someone's beloved pet home is reward enough.
We were presented with a beautiful plaque by Bruce Roney, President and CEO of the Ottawa Humane Society and the following was read by him:
The Ottawa and Valley Lost Pet Network is a social media network dedicated to reuniting lost and found pets with their families. The Facebook page, Twitter account and website are all managed by a small group of volunteers who have a passion for animals and who enjoy helping people. Followers message the page with a photo, location and a description of the lost or found pet. A post is created by the volunteers and shared to Facebook. Owners and finders are provided with tips and suggestions to maximize the odds of the lost pet returning home.
Thank you as well to all of our loyal followers, we couldn't do this without you!
