Actress Wendie Malick hosted this year’s Humane Society awards ceremony, “To the Rescue! San Francisco” at the Terra Gallery. The elegant Red Carpet event was held in support of the life-saving work of The Humane Society’s Animal Rescue Team.
The “Hot in Cleveland,” star was joined by Co-Chairs Susan Atherton and Jessica Moment, with Honorary Co-Chair Wendy Schmidt, and special guest Maggie Rizer Mehran, in bringing together a fabulous group of people devoted to supporting the HSUS Animal Rescue Team’s efforts at saving thousands of animal lives every year from cruelty, animal fighting and natural disasters.

While the event was an opportunity to showcase the heroic work of the Animal Rescue Team, who appeared on stage to enthusiastic applause, it was also a night for recognizing and honoring the efforts of local animal groups and dignitaries.
Humane Partner Awards were presented to the American Red Cross Bay Area’s Harold Brooks and to Maddie’s Fund co-founders Dave Duffield and Cheryl Duffield for their visionary leadership on behalf of animals in need in the Bay Area and beyond.
