Most people believe their pets are heroes because of the love, loyalty, and friendship
they give. For many years, animals around the globe have been noted as performing
heroic acts to save not only humans, but other animals as well. Some of these animal
heroes have been honored and others have gone without recognition. The Daily Mirror,
a British national daily newspaper, and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals (RSPCA) have teamed together to pick the most inspiring animals who have
shown outstanding commitment to improving not only their owner’s lives, but the lives of
others as well. Each year, The Daily Mirror honors certain animals and individuals who
have shown exemplary courage and bravery that has changed the lives of animals and others. They hold the ANIMAL HERO AWARDS!

Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2021 Animal Hero Awards. If you
know of an animal, individual or group who has performed an act of service and
dedication which deserves recognition please click on the link below and place your

We would like to thank everyone who referred and/or nominated a special person for recognition. Also, thank you to all the nominees, human or animal who have put forth a special effort or accomplished a task to make a difference. You are all heroes and we recognize your bravery and extra effort.
