We are excited to announce that voting is officially OPEN for the 2017 American Humane Hero Dog Awards, sponsored by the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation. The first round of public voting kicks off today, and don’t forget you can vote for one dog in each category once daily!
Nearly 200 heroic hounds have been nominated in the categories of Therapy Dogs, Service Dogs, Law Enforcement/Arson Dogs, Military Dogs, Guide/Hearing Dogs, Search & Rescue Dogs, and Emerging Hero Dogs. Voting will close on May 3rd at 12pm Pacific Time, and votes will be tallied to choose the top three dogs in each category.
These courageous canines will then be one paw closer to joining us in Beverly Hills this September at the seventh annual American Humane Hero Dog Awards gala. The finalists will then be within tail’s reach of the $7,500 charity prize AND coveted title of American Hero Dog of the Year!
We need YOUR help choosing the 2017 Hero Dog Awards semifinalists. Be sure to bookmark herodogawards.org/vote to keep voting easy.
Thank you for supporting heroes on both ends of the leash – vote now and once per day in each category until May 3rd!
PS – Don’t forget about the American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Technician Awards, in which one veterinarian and one veterinary technician will be honored for their outstanding work! Nominations are open through 12pm Pacific Time on April 6th. Nominate your hero vet and vet tech TODAY.
