The ASPCA Los Angeles Benefit was definitely a night to remember.

Held at a private residence in Bel Air, CA last Thursday (October 20) attendees enjoyed specialty cocktails featuring Casamigos Tequila and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, a silent auction to support the ASPCA’s Los Angeles Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic, music by DJ St. Clair, and more.

Sarah Hyland and Beth Behrs were the ladies of the evening, as they were being honored for their work with the ASPCA. “It’s so exciting to be here,” Hyland told Celeb Secrets on the orange carpet. “It’s a privilege that they are honoring me tonight.” Behrs added, “It feels so amazing to be here. I love the ASPCA! For so many years I’ve been friends with Leslie and Matt, and they helped me find my rescue horse, Belle. So I’m forever grateful to them for finding me my best friend.”

Presented by Nina Dobrev, Hyland received the ASPCA® Voice for Animals Award to recognize her efforts toward increasing awareness and inspiring action on behalf of animals in crisis. Behrs received the 2016 ASPCA® Compassion Award for the extraordinary commitment of time and effort she has dedicated to directly impact the lives of vulnerable and victimized animals, which was given to her by Jennifer Coolidge.

Did you know that both Hyland and Behrs have actually been active supporters of the ASCPA for many years?

“I’ve visited their facilities in New York and I can’t wait to visit their facilities in Los Angeles. They’ve only been open for two years and have already held over 40,000 animals. I think 20,000 of them have been adopted and over 10,000 of them sprayed/neutered. The programs that they are setting up are really amazing to have and help the animals in need in Los Angeles,” Hyland said.

“I’ve been an animal lover for many years. My sister and I had animals our whole lives. I own a rescue horse, and many people don’t talk about how they’re treated. They are herded, rounded up, and really mistreated. I feel like the ASPCA does so much for all animals, so this is an amazing platform to discuss what we can do to help save horses just like mine,” Behrs added.

Other celebs that helped support the animals included Michael Gladis, Lizzy Greene,Chandler Kinney, Leona Lewis, Marnie the Dog, Kayla Maisonet, Matthew Moy, Michael Patrick King, Keesha Sharp, Jazmyn Simon, Sophie Simmons, Harely Quinn Smith, Keith Stanfield, and Katie Stevens.
