Who’s Your Hero Of The Year?

Pam Porteous

If you’re having one of those days when you wonder about the humanity of your fellow humans, I have just the site you need to see! Check out the roster of nominees for Animal Planet’s Hero of the Year. These folks will make you proud to be the same species!

These nominees include some people you may have heard of, like Dogs Deserve Better’s Tammy Grimes, and some people you may like to know personally, like Pam Porteous, who adopted the city of Pontiac, Michigan to help every animal live a happy, healthy life. Every one of these ten nominees are outstanding people!

You can help decide who wins the $10,000 prize for their organization by voting at the Animal Planet site. The other half of this prize is a trip for two to Hawaii.
