The Humane Society of the United States’ 26th Genesis Awards just got that much more special, as Colbie Caillat will be lending her animal activism and voice to the event.

In addition to being known for her music, Caillat is also known for her dedication to animals. In 2011, she helped the HSUS promote action against puppy mills.

“Most people don’t know what happens in puppy mills. They just see the puppies in the window,” she said. Caillat is the spokesperson for The HSUS’ Puppy Mill Action week and has devoted her time and energy encouraging others to rescue or adopt pups.

The 26-year-old Grammy winner also has her own rescue dog named Plum, who she adopted from the Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue.

The Genesis Awards will be held on March 24th in Beverly Hills. The event honors the “strongest animal portrayals in news and entertainment media.” Nineteen awards will be handed out and the event will be hosted by “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba, a huge animal supporter herself.

“I am proud to be a part of an evening that honors those that have worked hard, sometimes under very challenging circumstances, to protect animals,” Caillat said.

“The Vampire Dairies” star Ian Somerhalder will also be presented with The Wyler Award honoring him for his work in raising animal awareness.

Be sure to watch the awards show on Animal Planet on May 5. An encore will air on May 6.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
