NJVMA's Animal Hall Of Fame 2012

Posted: Updated:

Every year, the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA) honors the state's bravest, most compassionate and affectionate animals in its Animal Hall Of Fame awards. Past winners have included a 'kissing pony,' a two-legged Chihuahua who fundraises for disabilities and a dog who saved a woman having a heart attack.

"Animals are a special part of our everyday lives. The (awards) give all animal lovers a chance to celebrate the uniqueness of the human-animal bond," said Dr. Peter Falk, Chair of the Animal Hall Of Fame Committee in a press release.

This year's winners include a rescued dog who now administers therapy, a stray cat who comforts people at a veterinary office and a Westminster Kennel Club winner who works with veterans.

The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 4.
