“Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba will join The Humane Society of the United States for the second year in a row as the host for the 2013 Genesis Awards Benefit Gala, the only awards show that recognizes news and entertainment media for their hard work to educate the public about important animal issues.

Inaba said about the honor, “I’m delighted to have been invited back by The Humane Society of the United States to host this truly unique and inspirational event. We all need to be a voice for those who cannot speak out for themselves, which is why The Genesis Awards recognize those who have the power to spread the word about the issues affecting innocent, voiceless animals.”

This year’s celebration of animal friendly content will benefit three specific HSUS campaigns including Pets for Life, Chimps Deserve Better, and Farm Animal Protection.

Last year the big winners included Ian Somerhalder, “The Colbert Report”, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Ellen Degeneres Show” among others.

We’ll be sure to let you know in mid-February who the nominees are. The actual awards show will take place on March 23, 2013.
