Dr. Kwane Stewart, veterinarian and co-founder of Project Street Vet and a Maddie’s Fund® grantee, has been named at the 2023 CNN Hero of the Year for his incredible work with pets and people.

As CNN Hero of the Year, Dr. Stewart will receive $100,000 to expand his work. During his acceptance speech, he promised to split the monies evenly amongst his nine fellow nominees.

“An act of kindness can change your day, change someone’s day. An act or gesture of kindness can change somebody’s life,” Dr. Stewart shared in the end of his speech.

A special thanks to everyone who voted!

Dr. Stewart shared his journey going from private practice veterinarian to walking the streets solo, helping the pets of the unhoused, on a Weekly Community Conversations Call earlier this year.
