Wow! What a Gala event, the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards, held October 6, 2012 at the classic Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles (same place the Golden Globes are). The emcee was Kristin Chenoweth, as seven hero dogs (in seven categories) were hailed by the celebrity audience for what they do everyday. One dog was named the 2012 Hero Dog the Year.
Here you'll see some images from rehearsal, the red carpet walk, as well as the Hero Dog Award Show itself and even the after party. The Hero Dog Awards airs November 8 on he Hallmark Channel.
