Every year, the Humane Society of the United States presents Genesis Awards to different media that have animal friendly themes.

In late May, the whole event will be shown on Animal Planet.

The HSUS senior director and event EP said:

"It was an outstanding year for major feature films with strong animal protection content and, most significantly, a combined domestic box office gross of $468 million — $1.17 billion worldwide.

Animal welfare concerns, such as chimpanzees being used in research which is addressed in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, are reaching huge audiences, thanks to the quality and engaging storylines of these films."
