Allison Janney’s sweepstakes to benefit Amelia Air Animal Rescue

Signed memorabilia includes scripts, DVDs of Janney’s CBS comedy ‘Mom’

Fans of Allison Janney, the Academy and seven-time Emmy Award-winning actress raised in Oakwood, have a chance to celebrate her latest Emmy nomination by helping her raise money to save animals.



Janney is offering signed memorabilia from her recent CBS sitcom “Mom” to benefit Amelia Air Animal Rescue. Her connection to Amelia Air is a family affair. Her niece, Petra Janney, co-founded the nonprofit in 2019. According to a release, Amelia Air is dedicated to saving pets from euthanasia with the mission “to provide the missing link between kill shelters with too many animals and families who want to adopt them.” Inspired by co-founder Dean Heistad’s family’s Great Dane Amelia, who was rescued in an airplane, Amelia Air now flies pets to freedom on both coasts of the United States. In fact, the organization has flown 18 missions and saved nearly 200 animals so far in 2021.

After raising over $32,000 for Amelia Air with her “West Wing”-themed sweepstakes in 2020, Allison returns to offer fans of “Mom,” which ended in May 2021, a chance to win one of several autographed pieces. The sweepstakes, which began Sept. 9, ends at midnight on Sept. 19, the evening of the Emmys. Allison is nominated for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Bonnie Plunkett, a recovering addict. All supporters who donate will be entered for chances to win. Chances start at $10.
