We told you when we attended the taping of the 2011 Genesis Awards, where they celebrated their 25th anniversary, with big name celebs like Betty White, Stephen Colbert, Emily Deschanel, Leona Lewis, Olivia Munn, Valerie Bertinelli, Michael Vartan, Brendan Brazier and Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis receiving their Wyler Award.

Now you can watch it for yourself! The show will air on Saturday, April 30th on Animal Planet and we can tell you that it is worth seeing.

The Genesis Award show is like Oscar night for animals and the people who love them. The room is filled to the brim with the brightest and most luminary figures in the world of animal activism, and aims to celebrate those in the media who have made strides to improve the life of animals everywhere.

Wayne Pacelle, the president and CEO of the Humane Society told us in an exclusive interview, “I just appreciate all of the different outlets that are raising awareness about our issues… We’re here to celebrate them collectively.”

Based on what we saw, the event is fun, heartwarming, laugh out loud hilarious at points, and heartbreaking at others— it is truly like no other award show Hollywood has to offer.

So, make a point to tune in on April 30th at 7 p.m. to celebrate the people who are campaigning to help save animals!
