Portland, OR. The Oregon Humane Society (OHS) is now accepting nominations for animal heroes and heroic humans who have had a positive impact on the lives of animals. They will be honored at the OHS Heroes Luncheon on February 20th, 2020 in downtown Portland.
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.
The OHS honor is called the Diamond Collar Hero Awards. It recognizes 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, 2020. Nominations can be delivered to OHS or submitted online here<http://www.oregonhumane.org/get-involved/events/diamond-collar-awards/>.
