"I promote lifelong, healthy relationships between dogs and people both on camera and in my everyday life. Healthy, happy pets mean longer lives for many people. It's just something that I believe.

Presented by CESAR(R) Canine Cuisine and produced by Emmy(R) Award winning MRB Productions, the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards involves a nationwide search for and tribute to America's top dogs, which will culminate in a red carpet, star-studded awards gala in Beverly Hills on October 1.

Voting is currently underway at www.herodogawards.org.

In addition to honoring the eight category winners, canine superstar Rin Tin Tin, who bravely served the U.S. Military during World War I and went on to become an American icon and movie idol, will be recognized with a special "Legacy Award," presented to one of his direct descendants, along with the dog's human handler. A scripted tribute, retelling Rin Tin Tin's incredible journey from war orphan to one of the most famous dogs on the planet, will be narrated by beloved actor and comedian Mickey Rooney.
