And the Pawscar goes to…
The nearly 60-year-old classic “Old Yeller” has been named American Humane Association’s all-time favorite family movie as part of this year’s Pawscar awards, announced just days before the human Oscars.
The AHA monitors and protects more than 100,000 animals working in 1,000 productions each year. The organization traditionally adds three all-time favorites to its list of all-time favorite animal-inclusive films during the Pawscars.
AHA officials say 1957’s “Old Yeller” was one of the first movies to ever focus on the human-animal bond.
Competing against Disney’s “Old Yeller” in national online voting was “Dolphin Tale,” “Babe,” “Beethoven” and “Homeward Bound.”
