On Monday, Four More Life Saving Pets Will Be Inducted Into Purina's Animal Hall Of Fame

TORONTO, May 12 /CNW/ - Four valiant pets and one incredible service dog will be recognized on Monday, May 16th for saving human lives at the 43rd Purina Animal Hall of Fame. All of these amazing animals have displayed extraordinary acts of courage and devotion, demonstrating the unique bond between animals and humans as well as the important role pets play in our lives.

The induction ceremony will be held at PawsWay Event Centre at Harbourfront, in Toronto, and the permanent home of the Purina Animal Hall of Fame.

Since 1968, the Purina Animal Hall of Fame has celebrated the special bond between pets and people, and true heroism shown by special Canadian animals. In 2010, pets across the country carried out extraordinary feats of bravery, loyalty and compassion in order to save human lives. This year's Inductees were carefully selected from hundreds of nominations from across the country and will join the other 146 courageous pets and service animals previously honoured in the Purina Animal Hall of Fame. Hosted by CP 24's Ann Rohmer, the 2011 Animal Hall of Fame Ceremony features presentations from special guests including Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker, Melissa Grelo and Dr. Jason Coe.
