Behind every hero pet is a Hero Veterinarian or Hero Veterinary Nurse.
The annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, sponsored by Zoetis, pays tribute to those who dedicate their lives to making a difference in animals’ lives through delivery of outstanding veterinary care.
Trained rescue workers rushing in to provide lifesaving services to animals after a disaster, an illegal breeder seizure, shelter takeover or animal-fighting raid; these heroes are always ready to help.
Veterinary experts who are there when our furry, winged or scaled friends are sick, injured or need immediate care. These heroes are never too tired to come to the clinic, to the farm or to a home to deliver hope and healing.
These heroes are those in the labs – researchers leading the way in finding cures to common ailments like hip dysplasia and feline leukemia to those working in the field to save species on the brink of disappearing forever.
