Calling All Heroic Pets and People

Now Accepting Nominations for Diamond Collar Hero Awards

Do you know an animal who has made a difference in the life of a special needs child or someone with an illness? Do you know a person who has helped animals in some unique way? The Oregon Humane Society (OHS) is looking to shine the spotlight on animals and animal lovers who are true heroes.

OHS is now accepting nominations for its Diamond Collar Hero Awards. The awards will recognize and honor animals who have acted to save a human or animal life in peril, performed services within the community with undying loyalty, or overcome incredible odds in order to survive. Winners can also be humans who have had a positive impact on the lives of animals, exhibiting courage and compassion in the pursuit of animals’ well being.

Award nominations are open to all two- and four-legged heroes and can be submitted now through February 1, 2018. Nominations can be delivered to OHS or submitted online here. All nomination forms should be returned to: Oregon Humane Society, Diamond Collar Committee, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR 97211, and postmarked by January 30, 2018 to ensure arrival by February 1.

The winners will be notified early February 2018 and will accept their awards at the OHS Heroes Luncheon to be held Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at the Multnomah Athletic Club in downtown Portland. See photos and videos of all the heroes honored in 2017 here.
