Celebrities Attend First Hero Dog Awards


With so many awards and ceremonies honoring the work that humans do, we can sometimes forget that we have help from our four-legged best friends. The Hero Dog Awards are a celebration of how man's best friend makes a difference in people's lives every day.

Carson Kressley, Julianne Hough, Betty White, Pauley Perrette, Peter Fonda, Joey Lawrence, Jake Pavelka and many other celebrities joined together at the event to help honor man's best friend.

The Hero Dog Awards were created to honor the thousands of dogs that help people in need everyday, by providing comfort and support with their unconditional love. This first-year event specifically focused on eight heroic dogs who were recognized for their true acts of heroism.

The Hero Dog Awards will air on the Hallmark Channel on November 11, 2011.
