The Humane Society of the United States created the Dogs of Valor Awards to honor and celebrate dogs who have performed an extraordinary act of courage by heroically helping a person in need. Their celebrity judges have sifted through scores of incredible stories that demonstrate the remarkable bond shared between dogs and people. They've chosen Valor Dogs of the Year in two categories, Companion Dog and Working Dog, based on the significance and impact of the dogs' heroic actions.
