Why should this person or animal be a PetPartners Animaltarian of the Year?
Betsy rescues animals from kill shelter death rows in the tri-state area of WI, IL, and IN, rehabilitates, and finds homes for them in her business run solely on donations. She tackles "every injury known to man" and has worked with the deformed, old, abused, sick and the dying; she adopts those for which she cannot find homes. She is currently fostering baby hamsters dropped off at her Saturday adoption event at a local pet shop, the same place where she saved 20 Flemish rabbits from the butcher knife. She has taken animals to a nursing home, allowing interaction, thereby prompting a mute man to utter his first words and bringing his family and friends to tears. She believes in educating the youth of today to compassionately care for the animal health needs of tomorrow and provides a service to both shelters and animals which no one else offers. Without her work, these animals would be euthanized simply because they were inconvenient, expensive, or difficult to care for.
If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?
This award would help rescue more animals, provide medical attention, and find them homes. It would help create a safe space for rabbits and sponsor an area for Trap, Neuter, and Release to reduce the number of feral cats. Her selflessness shows in that Betsy never mentioned anything for herself.
