due to covid-19, medal ceremony postponed until spring 2021

We regretfully have to postpone the next Animals in War and Peace Medal ceremony from September 30, 2020 to hopefully sometime in Spring 2021 due to the uncertainty of Covid-19.

However, we are still accepting nominations, and the new deadline is SEPTEMBER 30, 2020. 

Do you know a heroic animal that might be right for our Medal of Bravery or our brand new Distinguished Service Medal? We are now accepting nominations from the public for our next Animals in War and Peace Medal Ceremony that will be held on Capitol Hill hopefully in Spring 2021.   

The new Distinguished Service Medal is awarded to any animal who has distinguished by exceptionally meritorious service to the U.S in a duty of great responsibility. The performance must be such as to merit recognition for service which is clearly exceptional. 

Please download the form below and fill it out with all of the supporting documentation. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2020.  You can email the completed materials to WarAnimals@yahoo.com, or mail to Robin Hutton, Angels Without Wings, Inc., PO Box 1125, Moorpark, CA 93020. If you have any questions, please call (805) 603-2174. Click here to learn who is on our Nominating Committee and Advisory Board.
