Golden Paw Awards

Held on September 14, 2023, The Golden Paw Awards Presented by @idexx raised over $20,000 to save the lives of homeless and needy animals in our community. Being our inaugural event, we were amazed at the community’s response and loved seeing everyone enjoy the evening’s festivities.

The Golden Paw Planning Committee is already hard at work planning for September 2024. Make sure to check back on this page for updates!

Please join us in congratulating the award winners from our inaugural event which celebrated just a few of the amazing people who support needy pets and the mission of GAHS in so many ways!
