Out of hundreds of courageous canines who entered the 2018 American Humane Hero Dog Awards®, only 21 will move forward as semifinalists in the quest to become this year's top American Hero Dog. The first round of voting closes in less than a week at 12pm Pacific Time on Wednesday, April 25, and we need YOUR votes to help determine the three semifinalists in each of the seven categories!
In just a few weeks, the 21 semifinalists will vie to win their categories in the second round of voting. Then, only the top seven Hero Dog Awards finalists will get to fly to Hollywood for the star-studded awards gala, which will be broadcast on Hallmark Channel this fall.
So keep voting daily at www.herodogawards.org/vote and remember, you can vote once a day in each category for seven times the fun.
And special thanks to Platinum Presenting Sponsor, the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, and Corporate Presenting Sponsor Zoetis for helping us honor heroes on both ends of the leash.
P.S. Public voting opens May 3rd at 12PM Pacific Time for the American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, presented by Zoetis, so stay tuned!
