Know someone who goes all out to help animals? Nominate them for Animal Planet’s Hero of the Year. The Grand Prize winner, chosen by a judging panel and people’s choice voting, will win a $10,000 donation to the winner’s favorite animal welfare organization, a trip for two to the animal welfare-related destination of his or her choice, and a 30-second public service announcement for his or her cause.

And if you need more reasons to call out your favorite hero: The person who nominated the winner will get a $1,000 prize, and each day a randomly selected nominator will win a $50 PetSmart Gift Card.

Anyone who has adopted a pet they found on Petfinder knows a hero — and in fact, Jacci Moss, founder of Petfinder member Friends of Felines Rescue Center in Defiance, OH, was Animal Planet’s 2008 Cat Hero of the Year!
