Julia Colton Award
First awarded in 1995, the Julia Colton Animal Welfare Volunteer Award is presented in honor of Julia Colton.

Along with the Colton family, the Nashville Humane Association presents the Julia Colton Award to a volunteer whose commitment to the welfare of animals mirrors the contributions of the outstanding volunteer for whom this award is named.

Mary Pat Boatfield, executive director of the Nashville Humane Association, commented, “It is our great pleasure to recognize those individuals in our community who have so selflessly shared their valuable time, gifts and resources to help the animals. In addition, this is a special time to recognize the unique contributions made by the animals themselves.”
