Animal Hero Kids Awards in Los Angeles, December 2, 2013
Join us for a celebration of the children and youth who have gone above and beyond in caring, rescuing, and advocating for animals in need on Monday, December 2, 2013, at Ten Thirty One Productions, 2750 Casitas Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039 (Greco Decor Building).
For 32 years, the Animal Hero Kids Awards have encouraged animal heroes by recognizing children and youth with an award for the direct rescue of animals being harmed, starting or supporting existing animal rescue organizations, for taking action for animals by speaking to their local governments, and wildlife agencies, and for raising awareness through school clubs, videos, songs.
Previous award recipients vary from the teen who won the Ricky Williams Teen Animal Hero Award, Juliette West, for rescuing an elephant from a lifetime of abuse, to a 14 year old veggie chef who created her own cooking show, to seven children who rescued a puppy who was beaten and stuffed down the sewer grate, and many other extraordinary acts of kindness towards animals.
This year, entertainment mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons will be on hand to personally present his Creative Animal Hero Kids Award.
