Heroic Pets Inducted Into Animal Hall of FameS

You know how your cat is always wondering why nobody talks about his achievements? Well, if you live in Jersey, maybe you can nominate him for the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association's Animal Hall of Fame. It's too late for this year, though — on March 4, they'll be honoring three dogs, two cats, and a lady who "has made it her mission to rescue and relocate geriatric dachshunds." Sammy the Redtick-coonhound mix has "gone from being a Mississippi stray to an award winning therapy dog in just a few short years." Fred "wears many hats - greeter, comforter and comedian" (I hope he also wears real hats). Madison and Angelina, two classy-sounding kitties, visit local nursing homes. Maybe if you show your pet this article he will quit sleeping all day and start making himself useful.
