The ASPCA Annual Humane Awards Luncheon

The ASPCA Annual Humane Awards Luncheon provides the ASPCA with a forum to recognize animal heroes who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts, as well as individuals who have shown a great commitment to animal welfare. ASPCA Humane Awards are given in several distinct categories: ASPCA Dog of the Year, ASPCA Cat of the Year, ASPCA Tommy P. Monahan Kid of the Year Award, ASPCA Public Service Award, ASPCA Henry Bergh Award, ASPCA Equine Welfare Award and the ASPCA Presidential Service Award.

2019 Winners

The 2020 Annual Humane Awards Luncheon has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, October 6, we will host the Humane Awards Reimagined, a virtual event that will celebrate the ASPCA’s courageous and compassionate COVID-19 heroes and demonstrate our resolute commitment to pet owners and animals during a pandemic. The Annual Humane Awards Luncheon will return in the Fall of 2021. If you know someone who has shown an extraordinary commitment to animal welfare, nominate them for a 2021 ASPCA Humane Award today!

Whether you choose to participate as an event attendee, as a corporate supporter or by making a general donation, your involvement will help the ASPCA continue to provide local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals, and serving victims of animal cruelty.

Please consider giving to the ASPCA today.
