Trupanion and the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards

Hero Dog Awards logoHere at Trupanion, we always look to align ourselves with organizations that share our commitment to thehealth, happiness, and care of animals. The American Humane Association is one such organization and one way we are partnering with them is on their annual Hero Dog Awards. This year, we are proud to sponsor the Emerging Dog category, highlighting ordinary dogs that have made an extraordinary difference in their human’s life.

The Hero Dog Awards were created by the American Humane Association to celebrate the devoted relationship between dogs and people. The annual national competition searches out and recognizes America’s Hero Dogs – often ordinary dogs who do extraordinary things, whether it’s saving lives on the battlefield, lending sight or hearing to a human companion, or simply the tail-wagging welcome a pet owner relishes at the end of a hard day.
