Texas Animal Hall
of Fame

landing-15-foundation-hall-of-fameThe Texas Animal Hall of Fame was founded in 1984 to share the joy of the human- animal bond by recognizing exceptional animals. Texas Veterinary Medical Association members and the general public nominate animals each year, which are then chosen by the TVMF Board of Trustees.

Program Goals:

  • To honor the outstanding contributions our animal companions make to human lives.
  • To heighten public awareness of the human-animal bond.
  • To allow Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) members to share in celebrating their patients’ accomplishments by serving as nominators.

Nomination Categories:

  • Hero: an animal that has performed an incredible act of bravery or saved a human life.
  • Companion: an animal that has provided a special benefit to its community or human companions.
  • Professional: a remarkable, specially trained assistance animal.
