Do You Know a Hero Veterinarian?

American Humane is now taking nominations for 2018 American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards. If you and your animal friends have a hero vet in your life, now is the time to step up.

The group reminds us that behind almost every hero pet (and millions more animals) is a hero veterinarian or hero veterinary nurse or technician.

These benefactors save and improve the lives of our two- and four-legged best friends in many ways, and for the past four years, one awards ceremony has honored the tremendous achievements of America’s veterinarians and veterinary nurses.

American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, said it recognizes the hard work these professionals put in day-in and day-out in the name of helping animals, and is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the fifth annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards,

The awards are sponsored by animal health company Zoetis. Key dates include:
