Most people believe their pets are heroes because of the love, loyalty, and friendship they give. For many years animals around the globe have been noted as performing heroic acts to save not only humans but other animals as well. Some of these animal heroes have been honored and others have gone without recognition. The Daily Mirror, a British national daily newspaper and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) have teamed together to pick the most inspiring animals who have shown outstanding commitment to improving their owners and other peoples lives. Every year they honor the animals and individuals who have shown amazing courage and bravery, impacting and changing the lives of animals and others. They hold the Animal Hero Awards!
