The Daily Mirror has joined forces with UK's leading animal welfare charity, the RSPCA, to launch the Animal Hero Awards. The Awards will recognise and celebrate the country's bravest animals and the individuals and teams who have shown outstanding commitment to improve the life of animals.

Do you know an animal that has gone above and beyond for an owner or friend? Or maybe you have a pet that has had a traumatic life but has shown outstanding resilience and now brings joy to your life. Or do you have a friend who has campaigned for animal welfare in your area? We want to hear your heart warming animal stories so if you know someone or an animal that deserves to be recognised then nominate them for an Animal Hero Award!

All nominations need to be made no later than Friday 18th October to be considered for the 2013 awards, so don’t delay and make your nomination today.

All winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony, hosted by animal lover Amanda Holden, at the Langham Hotel on Thursday 28th November 2013.
