“Just like the winners inducted into the Animal Hall of Fame, this award is unique. It honors the extraordinary in the ordinary; the animals and individuals who achieve small accomplishments with monumental results,” said Richard Alampi, Executive Director of the NJVMA in a statement.
To nominate an animal or animal welfare individual, please complete the NJVMA Animal Hall of Fame application which can be found on the NJVMA website at http://njvma.org/online-nomination-form/.
The submission deadline is Nov. 10. Inductees will be honored at a public awards ceremony scheduled for Sun., March 13, 2016 at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel & Conference Center in Florham Park.
To be considered, all nominations must include the completed official application, the name and contact information of the nominee’s veterinarian, and a letter of nomination from the nominee’s owner or veterinarian explaining how the animal has exhibited special abilities or has demonstrated courage.
Nominations may also include additional letters of support, photographs, videos, drawings or newspaper clippings.
