The national animal-welfare non-profit Maddie's Fund named Ryan Clinton a 2018 beneficiary of its "Maddie's Hero Award" for his work in helping communities in Texas and throughout the United States improve live outcomes at their municipal animal shelters.
The award came with the opportunity to designate a $10,000 grant to an animal-welfare non-profit of the recipient's choice. Ryan picked the acclaimed Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, which has saved more than 9 out of every 10 animals in its care for nearly a decade.
According to Maddie's Fund, the award "recognizes and honors 'top dogs' in communities that are not only advancing the welfare of companion animals in the United States, but are leading the way with their innovative ideas, progressive thinking and lifesaving actions."
