Hero Dog Awards winners!

2018 Nominations are closed. Voting opens on February 28!

Welcome to the American Humane Hero Dog Awards®, the annual campaign that recognizes heroes on both ends of the leash. Seven lucky finalists and their human companions will be flown to Hollywood for a star-studded awards gala, which will be broadcast nationwide on Hallmark Channel next fall. Of all the courageous canines, one dog will be awarded the grand prize American Hero Dog title. In order to cultivate the next generation of hero dogs, American Humane will donate $2,500 to each of the seven finalist’s charity partners, and the American Hero Dog will win an additional $5,000 for their charity partner!
