Los Angeles, CA, April 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Genesis Awards, presented by the Humane Society of the U.S., is no doubt the equivalent of the Academy Awards for media that advocates for animals. Honorees include iconic figures like Oprah, Ellen, and Paul McCartney. This year A Super Smiley Adventure Best Friends Animal Sanctuary Radio Tour on Pet Life Radio was the recipient of the Genesis Award Honorary Mention. Other Honorees included 60 Minutes, Nightline and Pit Bulls and Parolees, and winners included Ellen and 20/20.
Produced and written by Pet Life Radio Founder/Executive Producer, Mark Winter and hosted and written by Actress/Pet Lifestyle Coach, Megan Blake, the radio series visits Dog Town, Cat World, Horse Haven, Pig Paradise and the Parrot Garden at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, and meets species-specific experts who share what it takes to care-take each of these animals.
Also appearing in the radio tour are Best Friend’s spokesperson, actress Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight, A Gifted Man) and actor and Academy Award-winner, Ryan O’Neal.
Blake says; “Winning an Honorary Mention at the Genesis Awards is a deeply profound honor and affirms that our voice for the animals is indeed heard.”
In producing A Super Smiley Adventure, the challenge was to zero in on critical issues; the importance of pet adoption and proper stewardship, how people can find their perfect pet so they won’t abandon them...and still keep the show fun and upbeat without diminishing the charm that defines the show.
