Ottawa – BUT Heroic Dog Award traveling from PETA to a local dog named Clover, who stopped traffic to get help when her guardian Hayley Moore had a seizure during her morning walk on March 16. Clover ran out in front of a passing truck, and when the driver got out to help Haley, Clover ran home and barked until Haley’s father and sister came to help.

Hayley has made a full recovery and her mother, Diane Moore, tells PETA that Clover was adopted a year and a half ago and is loved by her family.

“Clover risked her life to help Hayley,” says PETA vice president Colleen O’Brien. “Her heroism reminds us that many loving dogs are waiting to be adopted by the right family, and PETA encourages anyone with the ability and resources to care for the animal to visit their local shelter.”

About 70 million dogs and cats in the United States are homeless at any given time. An estimated 10% of them end up in animal shelters, where many end up being euthanized for a variety of reasons, including injury, illness, old age, emotional or psychological damage, and lack of good homes. This is why PETA is in favor of adoption and encourages guardians to neuter or neuter their companion animals.

PETA is sending the framed certificate to the Moore family along with a “dog bag” of toys and vegan treats for Clover and two other dogs in the family.

PETA, whose motto is in part that “animals are not in our hands to abuse them in any way,” is opposed to arrogance, which is a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram
