Parents of pre-schoolers across the country will be very familiar with Chase, Rubble, Skye, and Marshall, just some of the heroic pups from Nick Jr’s number one rated TV show PAW Patrol produced by Spin Master Entertainment.
And now the much-loved pups with their unique personalities are celebrating ‘real-life’ little heroes in the inaugural PAW Patrol Little Heroes Paw Awards 2018.
Launched over the bank holiday weekend at the UK’s dog-friendly music festival, PDSA PetLife ‘18, the eight Awards champion little ones who deserve to be recognised for the challenges they have faced in their lives and how they have touched the lives of others.
Whether they have overcome adversity, shown outstanding bravery, gone over and above for a friend in need, shown maturity beyond their years or supported their pet in times of trouble, the Awards will celebrate children’s real-life stories.
The Awards also include the Ryder Award for ‘PDSA Pet Hero of the Year’ in association with charity partner, leading veterinary charity PDSA. This special Award will recognise a child who has been an outstanding support to their pet either in times of trouble, change or who has a pet who has helped others.
The eight lucky finalists will spend the weekend at the Gloworm Festival with an extra special VIP glamping experience. They will attend their exclusive Awards ceremony to receive their certificate and medal straight from the paws of some of their favourite pups Chase, Marshall, Rubble and Skye, and have fun in the PAW Patrol Action Zone amongst lots of other activities. The runners up will receive a bundle of PAW Patrol toys.
