American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards were created to advance society’s understanding of the powerful relationship between dogs and people. Each year an online nationwide search is conducted to find hero dogs in eight categories: Law Enforcement and Arson Dogs; Service Dogs; Therapy Dogs; Military Dogs; Guide Dogs; Search and Rescue Dogs; Hearing Dogs; and Emerging Hero Dogs. For the inaugural event in November, 2011, eight finalists walked the red carpet and took center stage at a star-studded black tie gala at the famed Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California to accept their category “Hero Dog” award. Selected by popular vote and a celebrity judging panel, one dog is named the overall winning “American Hero Dog.” The first American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards were captured in a live-to-tape production by Emmy® Award winning MRB Productions and aired on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. The annual event is a unique celebration of heroes at both ends of the leash, dogs and the people who love them. You can learn more about “Ordinary dogs who do extraordinary things” at www.herodogawards.org.

Search and rescue dogs play a vital role in locating missing persons from accidents, natural disasters and beyond. These highly trained dogs use their keen sense of smell, night vision and endurance to help locate missing persons, often bringing the safe return of beloved family members, or helping loved ones find closure in more emotionally challenging situations. 2019 Search and Rescue Hero Dog Piglet Search and Rescue Hero Dog Awards works alongside her partner Lori Wells, and together they volunteer hundreds of hours per year when called upon for assistance by local authorities.

If you have a search and rescue dog who is dedicated to helping others, nominate them for the 2020 American Humane #HeroDogAwards, brought to you by the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation. Seven dogs will walk the red carpet in Hollywood this fall and be honored at the star-studded, televised gala. www.herodogawards.org/nominate

In 2011, American Humane Law Enforcement Hero Dog K-9 Jynx worked to protect his guardian Sgt. Kyle Pagerly and another officer when a crime suspect opened fire during a routine warrant delivery. Tragically, Sgt. Pagerly was killed in the line of duty, but if not for the swift efforts of K-9 Jynx, more officers would have lost their lives that night. Jynx retired with Sgt. Pagerly's wife and their young daughter in 2012, and since continued his legacy by making public appearances and teaching communities about the importance and value of public service K-9's.

With a heavy heart we share that K-9 Jynx crossed the rainbow bridge this past weekend. He will be remembered for his bravery and service, and is forever a hero to all of us.
