Message from IFW
Each year, IFAW and special guests come together to celebrate and say thank you to passionate and dedicated people who make a difference for animals, at a unique ceremony at the House of Lords.
Nominate someone special
At last year’s ceremony, award winners included:
Glasgow vet Ruby Shorrock, who runs free community clinics treating the dogs of homeless people.
Sheffield schoolgirl Storm Burgess, who has raised more than £6,000 for animal causes.
Dan Sidley, who set up the Yorkshire Swan Rescue Hospital to rescue, rehabilitate and release sick or injured swans.
We also recognised a special animal of the year and are looking for your animal nominations for 2017.
2016’s Animal of the Year was a 12-year-old springer spaniel called Roscoe, whose keen sense of smell has helped London Fire Brigade investigators sniff out the cause of hundreds of suspicious fires around the Capital and beyond.
Nominate an animal today
We will be presenting our Animal Action Awards in October and need your nominations by 30 May.
You will need to include:
Your contact information and the information of the person or animal you are nominating;
A description of the work the nominee has done for animals and what kind of animals they work with;
Why you think she/he is deserving of an Animal Action Award and anything interesting you would like to share with us about them.
Help us find this year’s winners and give them the recognition they deserve!
