The Legacy Award was created in 2011. It formally recognizes the outstanding efforts of society members that have shown long term commitment, executive performance, and a significant contribution to shaping the ERAS to what it has become today. The second recipients of this award are the society's founding members of the ERAS Rescue, Michele and Neil Weldon.
Michele and Neil are two of the original ERAS Members from the year the society was founded in 1994. They started the ERAS Rescue, and over the years have rescued over 400 animals to date. Michele is both an Animal Health Technologist and a Registered Wildlife Rehabilitator, which is something that comes in handy with intake assessments as many of the rescued animals need both veterinary care and rehabilitation.
Recently, Michele and Neil's facility became Alberta's first permited Rehab Facility for Reptiles and Amphibians, which is a huge accomplishment!
In addition to fielding calls for the ERAS Rescue phoneline, Michele and Neil conduct presentations for schools, mall events, Edmonton Bylaw, the U of A, NAIT, Pet Expos, shows, etc. Too many to count in fact!
Please help the ERAS in thanking Michele and Neil for all their hard work and their dedication all these years!
