The 2017 Animal Heroes

Michael and Angela Remen

Through their donation of the Mobile Adoption Center, Michael and Angela Remen have revolutionized the way the Humane Society of Summit County provides adoption services countywide and builds awareness for our animal welfare mission and life-saving programs. Our Mobile Adoption Center is a state-of-the-art vehicle custom designed to house up to 28 animals safely and comfortably for travel throughout the county to meet potential adopters at community events, civic groups, corporate offices, local businesses and more. We are proud to honor the Remens and their vision and transformational advancement of animal welfare in Summit County!

Dawn Bolin

Dawn Bolin has been a volunteer and supporter of the Humane Society of Summit County for over 15 years. Among Dawn’s greatest talents is her ability to bring people together in support of an important cause. She founded the Reverse Ruffle 13 years ago and has hosted this incredible community fundraiser annually ever since. The event grows bigger each year and features multiple raffles and fabulous prizes. Dawn and the Reverse Ruffle have raised over $100,000 in critical operating support for the animals we care for and the promotion of our mission. We are proud to honor Dawn and her dedication to the animals of the Humane Society of Summit County!

Kent State University Airport

Since the creation of the Props-4-Paws program four years ago, Kent State University Airport’s signature pet food drive has collected over 10,000 cans of food plus 2,000 lbs of dry food and other animal care supplies for the Humane Society of Summit County. Their canned food donation in 2016 provided food for 6 months to the animals in our care. This annual drive both raises awareness for the work and mission of the Humane Society of Summit County and provides critical supplies that enable our shelter to serve over 2,500 animals each year. We are grateful for the support of Kent State University, the airport, and pilots who organize Props-4-Paws for supporting the sick, injured, and neglected animals of Summit County in this way!
