Animal Hero Awards 2020

Animal Hero Awards 2020 - A unique celebration of the bond between people and animals, recognising and celebrating the most inspiring examples of bravery, dedication and resilience in the animal world.

The Mirror's Animal Hero Awards are back, honouring the most inspiring, uplifting and breathtaking stories of heroism in the animal kingdom.

Winners could be a dog or cat who has battled back from appalling neglect, a caring animal who has transformed someone’s life, or simply a loyal companion who made lockdown bearable.

The Animal Hero Awards, in partnership with Webbox and our charity partner Battersea, also honour people who have dedicated their lives to making the world a better place for animals. In homes, animal shelters and communities all over Britain, amazing acts of compassion and courage are happening every day, and we are excited to celebrate them with the Animal Hero Awards 2020.
