Tammie Crawford, seated, holds the award she received Friday afternoon for being named the WDRB Fox 41’s Hidden Hero for the month of January. Crawford was nominated for the honor by Carroll County Animal Support member Michelle Patton, standing second from right. Crawford deserved the award, Patton said, because of hard work and dedication to saving injured, neglected and abandoned animals in the county since CCAS was founded in March 2003. The group focuses on pulling dogs from Carroll County Animal Shelter to reduce euthanasia rates and find forever homes for them, either locally or with help from rescue groups nationwide. Along with the certificate, Crawford received a $100 gift certificate to Captain’s Quarters restaurant in Prospect, Ky.
