Recent winners of the Boone Area Humane Society (BAHS) Pet’s Choice Award are Roxanne Clemons, grant writer for BAHS and Matthew Bradner, Iowa Home Consulting.


Clemens volunteers her time to write grants for the BAHS. She keeps watch for available grants, their requirements and deadlines.


Bradner’s company, Iowa Home Consulting, donated materials and labor to paint the walls and floors of the shelter’s entryway, reception and office areas.


The Pet’s Choice Award recognizes people, businesses and even animals that go above and beyond the call of normal duty, responsibility or activities for the BAHS. This is also an award for those who exhibit kindness to animals. The award may be presented to an animal for special service to their owner, other humans or other animals. The Pet’s Choice nominations are received at the regular monthly meeting of the BAHS Board of Directors, where they are reviewed and voted on. Anyone can make a nomination. Nomination forms are available at the shelter, online at www.bahs.us or by contacting Kio Dettman, VP Publicity and Education BAHS Board of Directors.
