Julianne Hough helped kick off the voting campaign for the “Hero Dog Awards” in New York City on June 20th. Each vote for the lucky canines in the eight categories will be matched by a donation to the American Humane Association by Cesar Canine Cuisine. Proceeds will go towards assisting specially trained dogs used for animal therapy.
Hough visited patients who use the therapy dogs, and performed a few of her songs acoustically. She also shared stories on how her pets have helped her cope with loneliness on the road.
The Hero Dog Awards will air on the Hallmark Channel on November 1st.
