Behind every hero pet is a Hero Veterinarian or Hero Veterinary Nurse.
The fifth annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, sponsored by Zoetis, honor the heroes who dedicate their lives to making a difference in animals’ lives through delivery of outstanding veterinary care. The winners will win a trip to Hollywood and they will be announced at the star-studded awards gala, which will be broadcast on Hallmark Channel next fall!

Trained rescue workers rushing in to provide life-saving services to animals after a disaster, an illegal breeder seizure, shelter takeover, or animal-fighting raid; these heroes are always ready to help.

Bringing Care

Always there when our furry, winged, or scaled friends are sick, injured or need fast help from an expert who is never too tired to come to the clinic, the farm, or home to bring hope and healing.

Bringing Hope
