The No Kill Advocacy Center today announced the winners of its Henry Bergh Leadership Awards for “unwavering commitment to ending the systematic killing of animals in U.S. shelters.”

Recipients were:

Bonney Brown (pictured), director of the Nevada Humane Society and part of the team that has given Washoe County, Nevada, one of the highest save rates of any community in the country.

Susanne Kogut, director of the Charlottesville-Albermarle County SPCA, who has led her community to a greater than 90 percent save rate on a county-wide basis for three years running.

Seperate awards to Ryan Clinton, of, and Clare Davis of Coalition for a No-Kill King County, who are showing that the shelter system can be reformed from the outside by animal lovers in Austin, Texas and King County, Washington, respectively.

Mike Frye and Beth Nelson of Animal Wise Radio, starting what I hope will be a trend in giving prizes to journalists (kidding!) — a team that has been covering the no-kill movement nationwide for years now, and whose interviews with the leaders of that movement can be found here.

Joan Schaffner of the Animal Law Program at George Washington University Law School and the host of this year’s No Kill Conference in Washington, DC.

Henry Bergh was the founder of the ASPCA, the nation’s first humane society and the man who started the animal welfare movement.

Congratulations, everyone!…
