This week concluded the acceptance of new entries for our Tru Hero Veterinarian sweepstakes. We received nearly 100 entries, all of which were so very heartwarming and some tear-jerking.
It was very difficult, but we narrowed them down to five finalists across the US and Canada. These five finalists are in the running for the grand prize of $500 cash, $500 for their veterinarian to give to needy pets, and a Tru Hero plaque for the veterinarian to display.
Who will win? That’s up to you! Take a look at the stories and vote for your favorite by leaving a comment on that story.
