MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Carriage Hills Animal Hospital and Pet Resort will hold its sixth annual "Celebration of Life" event on Sunday from 2-4 p.m.

The event is held for pets and their owners, who have survived excessive injury or disease, to gather in a celebration of life. Many pet owners will be on hand to share stories of overcoming adversity with the help of veterinary professionals. A brief presentation will be held to start the event, followed by a special recognition to pets that are living normal lives after overcoming great obstacles.

Many awards will be given out including the "Winston Churchill" award which will be given to a little dog that learned how to walk again after months of therapy and multiple surgeries. Other awards include dogs that survived severe snake bites, injuries, cancer and other illnesses in addition to dogs that have demonstrated extraordinary human-animal bonds.

The Carriage Hills Animal Hospital is located at 3200 Eastern Bypass in Montgomery.
