AKC Humane Fund  -  Awards for Canine Excellence 2011

The AKC Humane Fund is accepting nominations for its 2011 Awards for Canine Excellence (ACE). To qualify, the purebred dog must be AKC registered or an AKC recognized breed and have performed some exemplary act, whether large or seemingly small that has significantly benefited a community or individual. One award will be given in each of the following five categories: Companion, Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue, Service, and Therapy. When appropriate, dogs earning honorable mention will be cited.


Each of the five recipients will receive a cash award of $1,000, a plaque honoring their dog, and an engraved sterling silver medallion, which they will receive at a special presentation ceremony at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in Orlando, Florida, in December 2011. In addition, the names of the five recipients will be engraved on the ACE Awards plaque that is on permanent display in the AKC Headquarters in New York City. Dogs receiving honorable mention will be awarded an engraved bronze medallion. All entrants will receive an AKC Humane Fund ACE Certificate of Recognition in acknowledgement of their nomination.
