WASHINGTON, January 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – For millions of Americans, animals are not only their best friends, but also their heroes. Whether they give eyes to the invisible, ears to the deaf, protection to the sleeping family and soldier, or an inviting lick at the end of a hard day – animals affect us in so many different ways. We know that behind almost every hero pet (and millions of other animals) there is a hero veterinarian or a hero animal sister. These benefactors save and improve the lives of our two- and four-legged best friends in many ways. In the past seven years, the enormous achievements of American veterinarians and animal keepers have been recognized with an award ceremony.

Behind every hero pet there is a hero vet or a vet nurse. Nominate yours today!
