The 2021 American Humane Hero Dog Awards Gala at Eau Palm Beach Resort was recently held to honor the nation’s top dogs. The 2021 American Humane Hero Dog Awards winner was Boone, a 4-year-old beagle who survived cruelty as a puppy, which resulted in amputating his back legs. His resilience, gentle nature and never-ending energy enabled Boone to become a therapy dog who helps comfort and inspire people he comes into contact with.

The 11th annual Hero Dog Awards was sponsored by philanthropist Lois Pope and was hosted by American Humane CEO and president Dr. Robin Ganzert alongside American television personality Carson Kressley. The program also featured appearances by film and television star Vivica A. Fox, Grammy-winning musical headliner Lisa Loeb, country star Naomi Judd, USMC Colonel Scott Campbell (Ret.), Rear Admiral Tom Kearney (Ret.), distinguished veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker and Zoetis’ EVP and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael McFarland. 

Along with Boone, the 2021 Hero Dog Awards finalists included Deputy Chance, Sobee, Boone, Henna, K-9 Hansel, Little Man and Staff Sergeant Summer.
