American Humane Hero Dog Awards

The Brady Hunter Foundation proudly sponsored the “Therapy Dog” category at the 13th Annual American Humane Hero Dog Awards in Palm Beach, Florida, this November. This category honors the exceptional contributions of therapy dogs who extend their assistance beyond their owners or handlers, providing invaluable support in areas such as physical, social, emotional, and cognitive challenges. The American Humane Hero Dog Awards, a cherished nationwide tradition, showcased five remarkable canines, each with inspiring stories. Among them, Maverick emerged as a finalist in the hero dog category, ultimately securing the coveted title of “American Hero Dog.”


Maverick’s journey to triumph is a testament to resilience, compassion, and a profound dedication to service. As a therapy dog, Maverick went above and beyond, offering unparalleled support to individuals facing various challenges. His exceptional service to the USO, where he brought comfort and joy to members of the military, exemplifies the transformative power of the human-canine bond. Maverick’s victory not only recognizes his individual accomplishments but also emphasizes the broader impact of therapy dogs in our communities, serving as an inspiration for the positive influence these furry heroes can have on the well-being of individuals and society as a whole.
