The Oregon Humane Society honored four heroes on February 23 with Diamond Collar Hero Awards recognizing pets and people for remarkable achievements. The honorees ranged from an abandoned cat who made a miraculous medical recovery to a police officer who helps animals both off and on the job.

"The OHS Diamond Collar Awards are a chance to celebrate the heroic stories that exemplify how important pets are in our lives," said Sharon Harmon, OHS Executive Director. Harmon and Matt Zaffino of KGW Ch. 8 co-hosted the awards ceremony. "These winners showed compassion, courage and a desire to help their community," said Harmon. More than 400 people attended the ceremony at the Governor Hotel in Portland, which also raised more than $100,000 for pets in need.
