NMDOG’s Angela wins National Award

| October 17, 2017

NMDOG’s Founder and Director, Angela Stell, has been selected as the 2017 National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) Diane Lane Memorial Award winner! To quote NACA: “This Award is for outstanding volunteer service. The nominee selected to win this Award is someone who is not directly employed in the animal care and control field, but serves in volunteer capacity within the animal care and control field or other animal welfare related activities. He or she will have demonstrated exceptional dedication, or performed outstanding work far beyond the requirements of the volunteer position.”
Angela and NMDOG were nominated by Bernalillo County Animal Care Services. Thank you BCACS!

This is the letter we got informing us of this enormous honor:
Dear Ms Stell,
It is my pleasure to inform you that you have been selected as the recipient of the 2017 NACA Diane Lane Award. Your nomination was considered along with those from across the United States and selected as the nominee that met the highest of standards. The caliber of applicants made this year’s selection extremely difficult. You are to be commended for achieving this level of recognition.
Clint Tucker
NACA Board of Directors

Angela will accept this honor at the NACA National Conference Awards Luncheon.
