The Second Annual Tailwaggers Foundation Waggy Awards

by Jeff Yarbrough

The Tailwaggers Foundation celebrated its Second Annual Waggy Awards in February 2015 at The Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. Hosted by former Elvira actress Cassandra Peterson, the event celebrates those who have supported the needs of animals in Los Angeles and beyond. This year’s honorees were United States Congressman Adam B. Schiff and Linda Blair of the Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation (LBWF).
As the representative of California’s 28th district, Mr. Schiff maintains a liberal, progressive stance on animal rights and has received a rating of 100% from the Animal Welfare Institute. He remains a congressional ally for individuals dedicated to expanding legal protections for animals.
LBWF works to end animal cruelty through public education and operates an animal rescue that seeks permanent families for homeless animals. Using the media as a primary educational outlet, the organization combats fear-based arguments that can lead to breed-specific legislation and bans, while raising awareness about important issues like dog fighting and overpopulation.
