On Saturday, March 19, The Humane Society of the United States will proudly
celebrate The 25th Anniversary Genesis Awards.  This
highly-respected, annual event pays tribute to the major news and entertainment
media for producing outstanding works that raise public consciousness of animal
issues by recognizing writers, producers, directors and others in the media who
used their talents over the past year to generate awareness of animal protection
concerns. The show will premiere on Animal Planet on Saturday, April 30, 2011,
at 7.00 p.m.


Humane Society of the United States is also proud to honor actress Kristin Davis
at this year’s event. Ms. Davis will receive The Wyler Award, one of The Humane
Society of the United States’ most prestigious honors. Bestowed on a celebrity
or public figure that has made news on behalf of animals, the award is being
given to Ms. Davis in recognition of the attention she has brought to the plight
of orphaned African elephants impacted by the increase in elephant poaching for
their ivory tusks.
