Four-legged friends showed up in their very best for the annual ASPCA Humane Awards for Animals.
They are the best of the best.
Hundreds of nominations poured in from across the country.
Only eight lucky contestants – humans and animals -- won awards. They all made a difference in their community.
“The Humane Awards Luncheon honors those who have gone above and beyond for animal welfare and animal heroes who have dedicated their lives to help others,” says ASPCA President and CEO Ed Sayres. “It’s a wonderful event that celebrates the important role companion animals play in our lives.”
