Avanzino Leadership Award

The Avanzino Leadership Award recognizes outstanding leadership in the animal welfare community. Maddie’s Fund is seeking nominations for leaders who have demonstrated significant achievement in lifesaving for their organization, showing the courage to look beyond the status quo and making bold decisions to improve the lives of dogs and cats, and being a champion of the no-kill movement.


Nominations are Closed.

Update: Due to the overwhelming amount of nominees and the effects of Hurricane Harvey, we'll be postponing the announcement of the Avanzino Leadership Award winner. Thank you all for your nominations and your generous support to hurricane victims.

Please stay tuned... we'll update this page and send an email to Maddie Network members when we have an announcement date.
