Additional awards will be presented to Jacob Pendleton, of Camden, recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Youth Volunteer of the Year; and to Heidi V. Neal, owner of Loyal Biscuit, will be recognized as the 2018 Business Partner of the Year.

“The Heroes Gala is our opportunity to honor and celebrate the success of the shelter and of those who have offered their support, their passion and their compassion to the organization and most especially to the animals we serve.” said Shelly Butler, executive director of P.A.W.S., according to the release.
