After nearly a million votes cast the winners of the Webby People’s Voice Awards were announced with the ASPCA taking top honors as the Best Charitable Organization/Non-Profit Website.

The site, which is produced by Boston Interactive, offers visitors a wide array of articles about animal cruelty, adoption, and pet care. Supporters can easily stay connected and get involved with the ASPCA’s animal welfare issues as well as make donations and access the organization’s social media.

“We are thrilled to have received such a great honor by the voting public,” said Betsey Fortlouis, Vice President of Member Communications for the ASPCA. “Boston Interactive has designed a great Web site that supports our messaging and provides easy navigation.”

Established in 1996, the Webby Awards is an international award honoring excellence on the internet. The annual awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences which consists of a 650 person judging panel whose members include Martha Stewart, David Bowie, Arianna Huffington, R/GA’s Chief Bob Greenberg, and Twitter’s Biz Stone.

“The Webby Awards honors the very best of the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “The ASPCA’s achievement is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.”

The ASPCA will receive their award on June 14 during a star-studded ceremony hosted by B.J. Novak of “The Office.” The ceremony will be available online on June 15 at the Webby Awards YouTube Channel.
