At Purina, we understand that pets and people have a remarkable connection – and it’s this unique bond that is celebrated through the Purina Animal Hall of Fame. The Purina Animal Hall of Fame is the longest running Canadian pet recognition program of its kind. To date, 182 remarkable animals with outstanding lifesaving acts of animal courage and heroism have been inducted.

This year, Purina is pleased to mark the 51st Anniversary of the Animal Hall of Fame by inducting three new heroic dogs who have exemplified these extraordinary qualities to save a human life. The 2019 Purina Animal Hall of Fame inductees, Shelby, Rosco and Tucker, were honoured at a special red carpet awards ceremony on June 11th, 2019 in Toronto.

In advance of the event, each inductee was surprised in their hometown with the news that they had been selected to receive their medal of honour in Toronto and a year supply of Purina dog food.

Meet @PurinaCanada’s 2019 #petheroes: Watch, enjoy and share their stories!
