The Animal Hero Awards recognise and celebrate the most inspiring examples of bravery, dedication and resilience in the animal world.

The Daily Mirror has joined forces with UK’s leading animal welfare charity, the RSPCA to pick the most inspiring animals along with the individuals and teams who have shown outstanding commitment to improving their lives.

Do you know an animal that has gone above and beyond for an owner or friend? Or maybe you have a pet that has shown amazing resilience to overcome traumatic circumstances to bring happiness to you or others?

Or do you have a friend who has campaigned for animal welfare in your area?
Whatever the case, we want to hear your heart-warming and inspiring stories, so if you know someone or an animal that deserves to be recognised then nominate them for an Animal Hero Award!

All nominations need to be made no later than Friday 1st July to be considered for the 2016 awards, so don’t delay and make your nomination today.

All winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony, at The Grosvenor House Hotel, on Wednesday 7th September 2016.
