John Bartlett, Inc. received the Henry Spira Humane Corporate Progress Award from the Humane Society of the United States Wednesday. The designer — who rescued a three-legged dog, Tiny Tim — created the “The Tiny Tim Rescue Fund,” supporting independent rescue groups across the country. The designer’s brand also earned the award for its celebration of fur-free fashion.
“John Bartlett continues to lead the way in furthering the fur-free message in the fashion world,” said PJ Smith, the corporate outreach manager for the Humane Society of the United States. “From working with local animal shelters to speaking to other fashion designers about the cruel fur trade, Bartlett’s passion for animals knows no bounds.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
