HSUS Hires Popular “Dancing with the Stars” Judge to Host Gala

Posted on February 14, 2013

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has hired “Dancing with the Stars” judge and life-long animal advocate Carrie Ann Inaba for the second year in a row to host the HSUS Genesis Awards Benefit Gala.

The Gala, being held Saturday, March 23, 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA is to “celebrate the work of the HSUS and the role that news and entertainment media and high profile individuals play in raising awareness of animal issues” according to an article released earlier last week by HSUS.

HSUS, often confused with local pet shelters, plans to use the proceeds from the HSUS Genesis Awards Gala to benefit what the HSUS refer to as their “top animal welfare priorities”: Pets for Life, Chimps Deserve Better and Farm Animal Protection.

Inaba, known as an animal lover and advocate for animal welfare, is also an award-winning television host, choreographer and producer.  She recently launched her own foundation, The Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project, dedicated to supporting the rescue, welfare and well-being of animals.

HSUS, known for their radical approaches to fighting the rights of animals, is number one on the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) “Dirty Dozen” list.    USSA recently fought legislation in California with HSUS on the opposing side that would end the hunting of bears and bobcats with the use of hounds.  This is just one of many instances that HSUS pushed legislation to oppose different hunting methods.

HSUS opposes all hunting and trapping, animal agriculture and most other uses of animals.
