What do Ed Asner, Cheri Shankar, and GreaterGood have in common? The Humane Society of the United States is recognizing us at their 2015 Los Angeles Benefit Gala for our work helping animals!
Ed Asner, movie and television star, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for his longtime passion for the humane treatment of animals. Cheri Shankar is a longtime animal rights activist, and will be awarded the Humane Hero Award. And GreaterGood will receive the Compassion in Action Humane Corporate Award.
The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood are honored to be recognized by HSUS, and will continue to work with them and other dedicated animal rescue groups to effect change for animals across the country and around the world. We’ve supported programs that save dogs from the illegal meat trade, that fulfill shelter needs, and that help make animals more adoptable (check out our One Picture Saves A Life program in the video). Our CEO, Tim Kunin, and our president, Greg Hesterberg, are honored to be invited to the 2015 Los Angeles Benefit Gala to receive this award. (You can even still buy tickets, if you want to go – they benefit key HSUS programs.) But everyone here knows – we couldn’t do it without you.
So here’s to you, for sharing your homes and hearts with the animals you love. For sharing your stories and wisdom with other animal lovers. For lifting your voice for change when animals can’t, and for donating to help when animals are most in need. And most of all, for embodying the idea of “compassion in action.” Little actions have big impact – and together, our love for animals truly does make a tremendous difference.
