We all love our pets, but there are some people who go above and beyond for their furry friends. We have partnered with Petplan to bring you the Pet Parent of the Year awards! Nominations are coming in and there are some truly inspiring people out there. Click here to nominate a fantastic pet parent for the chance to win this amazing honour!

We are looking for great stories about foster parents, pet parents whose pet in turn saved them, touching stories of care, courage and love in times of crisis or just paying it forward and taking care of animals who just happen to cross paths with these angels. As we read through the stories as they come in, there is one main takeaway—there are so many amazing people out there who are willing to go the extra mile for the animals in their lives. 

One example of a great nomination is for a woman who turned the untimely loss of her dog, who was attacked by a much larger dog, into a charitable effort that donates money for veterinary care for shelter animals. She has created a lasting memorial for her dog, and is giving back to animals who are in a position of desperate need. Inspiring, kind, and a gesture filled with love that warms our hearts.

Here are a few photos of some of our favourite nominees and their pets! Too cute!
