The annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, sponsored by Zoetis Petcare, honor the heroes who dedicate their lives to making a difference in animals’ lives through delivery of outstanding veterinary care.
One winning Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse will be featured on the 2021 American Humane Hero Dog Awards® broadcast on Hallmark Channel this fall!

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.
A researcher in a laboratory, spending long hours to find the cure for hip dysplasia and feline leukemia, or ways to lower the numbers of adoptable animals abandoned each year.
