The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA) is now accepting nominations for the 20th Annual Animal Hall of Fame, celebrating the human-animal bond.

"Just like the winners inducted into the Animal Hall of Fame, this award is unique. Unlike most, it does not honor the best in show or the most agile. It honors the extraordinary in the ordinary; the everyday animals and individuals who achieve small accomplishments, with monumental results," said Richard Alampi, Executive Director of the NJVMA.

Paw's Corner: Train dogs to behave off leash Paw's Corner: Train dogs to behave off leash Q: I love taking my golden Lab, Chloe, out for walks in the nearby woods.
