Animal Hall of Fame
The Animal Hall of Fame was organized in 1987 to acknowledge animals which show unselfish and courageous service to their owners, the community, and others; animals that have enriched and aided human life in compelling ways to share in the joy of the human/animal bond. These awards are made each year.
There are three categories of recognition: Hero - these animals have saved or preserved human life; Professional - specially trained assistance animals that perform a specific task; and Companion - animals who have enriched the lives of their human companions or their community.
The Animal Hall of Fame is housed at the OVMA headquarters in Oklahoma City.
Nomination for membership in the OVMA Animal Hall of Fame may be made by any one, but must be sponsored by an OVMA member on an approved nomination form and signed by the animal's veterinarian and owner and mailed to:
