Three Local Teens Receive Humane Youth Award

The Humane Society or Huron Valley gives the Humane Youth Award to kids who are working to improve the lives of local animals – here are the 2018 winners.

Three local teens who volunteer at the Humane Society of Huron Valley were recently recognized for their efforts to improve the lives of animals in the community.

The shelter’s 2018 Humane Youth Award (its first-ever!) went to Claire Roffi, 16, of Novi, who helps socialize shy dogs at the shelter, volunteers for Last Day Dog Rescue and raises money for other animal rescues.

Runners-up are volunteers Emilia Callan, 17, and Kaitlin Barrett-Huff, 16, both of Ann Arbor.

“We are thrilled to publicly acknowledge teens who lead by example, one act of kindness at a time,” says Karen Patterson, director of volunteers and humane education at HSHV.

For more details on this award and other teen volunteer opportunities with this organization – plus information on adopting a rescue or shelter pet – visit the Humane Society of Huron Valley’s website.
