We are bursting with pride that Stephanie Munkley, BFF’s founder and current President, has been awarded the Unsung Hero Award in the Peninsula News Review’s 2023 Local Hero Awards!
Stephanie’s journey as an advocate for vulnerable pets and their owners began years ago when she recognized a gap in the support system available to those struggling to afford essential veterinary care. Through thousands of volunteers hours, her compassion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to her cause have set a standard for community service that is nothing short of inspiring.
The Unsung Hero Award is not just a testament to Stephanie’s hard work; it’s a celebration of the values she embodies—empathy, compassion, and an unyielding commitment to helping others. It serves as a reminder that heroes aren’t always the ones in the spotlight; they are often the ones working diligently behind the scenes, driven by a passion for making the world a better place.
