What a pawty!

Wow!! What a pawsome pawty! Three days jam packed with fabulously dressed guests, glittery awards, and much deserved recognition to the volunteers of the anipal community. 

Our very own Rainbow Bridge Event Producer, and Anipal times reporter details the weekends events HERE in his Anipal Times article. 

Now that everyone has had a chance to sleep off all the excitement, there's more to look forward to! In the coming weeks we will be posting Acceptance speeches and photos of the winners in the General categories, and Photo & Video Event. 

Also to look forward to is a special post event souvenir we're working on. If you haven't sent us a photo of you on the red carpet or hob nobbing with other guests at the after pawties please do so. Send all photos to:

There are a lot more surprises to come, so make sure to follow us on twitter or Facebook.

AAA Volunteer Achievement Awards

Friday night, November 11, AAA will recognize volunteers who donate their time and talent to support rescue anipal organizations. Anipal volunteers staff #pawpawty and #nipclub in order to raise funds for featured charities. These anipals are the true heroes of our slice of Twitter, and AAA will thank each and every one of these champions for rescue anipals.

Red carpet arrivals will start at 6pm ET. From 7-9 pm ET individual presentations to about 150 volunteers will be made. Please stick around after the awards and toast to every one's efforts!

We will post a google doc with all names with link to their Achievement Star Award prior to the event so you can see the approximate time you will receive your star. Please understand that we might accidentally overlook an name or 2. We will announce your name on Saturday, and Sunday and present you with your Star.

Our Anipal Swag designer, @JavaTheCat, has created some lovely Star items that can be personalized. Please check out these items! I want to buy one of everything! (Parker MIGHT get one tiny magnet. MOL!)  Java'sZazzleStore

There are 4 wonderful presenters who will make the night very special, @Niqqi, @MizzBassie, @MissBusyBiz, and @PuppyaGuineaPig. I hope to see you all there Friday night, Nov 11.

Anipal Achievement Awards

Friday night ceremonies for the Anipal Academy Awards will honor anipals who work very hard to support charities, educate us and help us have fun. Bartenders, dj's, quizzers, and sekurity for #pawpawty and #nipclub will be recognized. The staff from Anipal Times will be thanked. Other examples of anipal achievements are detailed below and I NEED Your Help!

The categories that I need your input are:
1. Artists:  those who use their art to spread the word about anipal rescues. Example is @Bztat.
2. Fundraisers: anipals sponsor pawties or auctions to support anipal rescue efforts. Examples are Shibbering Cheetos, #NipClub, @HemingswayCat for #SpookyShorty
3. Morale Boosters: Something just for fun to lift our spirits like PetChat, CarniePawty
 and WigglePawty.



4. AV Creators: We have a number of anipals and humans
 who make outstanding AV's for us. I can think of @Danapixie,@FreshOtis and @mariodacat.

 If anyone would like to nominate an anipal deserving of an achievement award, please email MaggieTKat. Please include the anipal's name and why they deserve the award.

Thanks,
Maggie
Anipal Achievement Award Coordinator
