2019 Recipient

Doug Price

This year's award was presented to a man who tirelessly gardens to raise money for animals through the sale of flower bouquets. The money raised goes to  an organization called Petals for Pups and Purrs which has  placed many homeless animals in permanent homes. 


Mr. Price has a large garden dedicated to raising flowers which are harvested and sold at various local businesses, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting homeless animals. 

 

His daughter used the following quote by  Louis Nizer to describe Doug:  "He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist. 


Doug's work has been appreciated by the animals of Barrett and far beyond. He is truly an artist with a big heart for furry creatures.
