President of Actors and Others For Animals to be honored for her years of activism at the shelter’s annual event
Palm Springs, CA – September 14, 2015 - JoAnne Worley, actress, singer, and comedienne, will be honored with the Friends For Life Award at the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s annual gala, The Faux Fur Ball II: Puttin’ On The Leash on October 24, 2015. As president of Actors and Others for Animals, Worley is being honored for her years of dedication to improving the lives of animals.

Providing a safe haven for all animals is a huge undertaking but one they are committed to sustaining. Shelter Director, Dr. Shayda Ahkami shares, “The flow of animals into our shelter is tremendous, and we rely on fundraising efforts like this one to continue to be there for the animals who are depending on us.”

This weekend we had the honor of watching four coyotes enter their natural home again. All were found as pups, alone and too young to care for themselves. Thank you to our friends at The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center for caring for them these past several months, ensuring they are healthy and strong and that they retained their natural instincts to survive and thrive on their own. Compassion for all animals is our mantra!
