Anipal Academy Awards 2011!

November 11th is the opening night to an important weekend event that should not be missed, the:

Anipal Academy Awards 2011

Hosted By: @AnipalAwards

Friday, November 11 at 6:00pm through Sunday, November 13 at 4:00pm

Anipal Academy Awards is an annual event that does many wonderful things. It is a great way to show support for the many wonderful volunteer anipals, humans, rescue groups and other not-for-profit organizations! The 2011 official charity is: Colorado State University, Advancing Cancer Research.
I hope you will please consider making a donation.

Very touching is the story of Kari, a female Golden Retriever, who you you should know was a very brave dog and ultimately, a pioneer in the development of a new cancer chemotherapy protocol. Read her story at the blog link, and see her beautiful picture. Kari’s owner has pledged matching dollars, up to $4 million, to establish Kari’s Fund, an endowment that will secure the future of the Animal Cancer Center at Colorado State University.

During the event, which will take place on Twitter, there will many exciting things to look forward to, including a video and photo contest, and a Rainbow
Bridge program.

The way that this will be run is that first there will be “Red Carpet Arrivals” beginning at 6 PM. EST.

Then, from 7:00-9:00 PM EST, there will be presentations to over 150 volunteers!

The Anipal Academy Awards presenters are: @Niqqi, @MizzBassie, @MissBusyBiz, and @PuppyaGuineaPig.

After the event there will be a special toast to all of the hard work that these volunteers do.
