Many thanks to NJVMA Executive Director Rick Alampi for his vision as director and special recognition goes to Glenn Kolb of the Oregon VMA.

Funny Farm Rescue Animal Sanctuary Among Inductees of the 23rd Annual NJVMA Animal Hall of Fame
The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA) Animal Hall of Fame Committee has selected two dogs, one rabbit, one horse and an animal sanctuary for induction into the 23rd Annual NJVMA Animal Hall of Fame.
“The NJVMA is honored to recognize the animals and people that inspired us to share their stories and to recognize the role that veterinarians play in strengthening the human-animal bond,” said Dr. Peter Falk, Chair of the Animal Hall of Fame Committee. “This year’s exceptional inductees have made significant contributions to those around them.”
A forever home for unwanted animals, a retired service dog, a floppy-eared “snuggle bunny,” an intuitive therapy horse and working police Bloodhound will be celebrated on March 11, 2018 with induction into the NJVMA Animal Hall of Fame.
“Because of the internet and social media, stories involving the human-animal bond now reach well beyond state and even national boundaries and have the potential to prompt action on a global scale,” Dr. Falk said.
