Since 2000, APNM has been "catching people in the act" of doing miraculous things for animals and recognizing them publicly for their humanitarian efforts. 2011 has brought a host of compassionate winners from a heroic donkey named Bindy to New Mexico's own Attorney General Gary King. By bestowing this award on those who have made a marked difference for animals in New Mexico, we hold them as models in the community. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased online at apnm.org/programs/milagro_awards. The event will feature the awards ceremony, a marvelous vegan dinner, and upbeat music. APNM is also seeking sponsors for the award winners and advertisers in the award program. For more information contact Daniel Abram at (505) 265-2322, ext. 32, or email to daniel@apnm.org.
