THE WINNER is Fiona Conlon... all others will still be in the next round and here are some of their stories.
I’d really like to nominate my sister Fiona who works for the ISPCA. Unfortunately animal cruelty doesn’t stop during a world pandemic and she’s as busy as ever. She’s my daughters ultimate hero and she lives by the mantra “Saving one animal won’t change the world but it will change the world of that one animal”. She really has a passion for her work and gives it her heart and soul.
