Meritorious Awardees ....
2000 Skunkitarian Award
Presented to Bryan and Midge Smith for their outstanding
commitment towards a dozen young neglected captive-bred
skunks who, by no fault of their own, wound up in the
wrong place at the wrong time. Thanks goes out to the
Smiths for helping make the Philadelphia rescue possible.
1999 Skunkitarian Award
Bestowed upon David and Susan Dropkin for outstanding,
unconditional devotion towards a mistreated, mentally
disturbed captive-bred rescue skunk. It has taken the
Dropkins more than a year to rehabilitate this very
moody skunk. Now that takes patience.
1998 Skunkitarian Award
Given to Jessica Steckler for saving a flock of skunk babies
who were going to be released to the wild by a local breeder.
She single-handedly found loving, caring, good homes for them
all. Thanks to her their lives were spared.
Thanks for Caring!
