Ke$ha was named the Humane Society International's first global ambassador in 2011.
She has fought against lion hunting, shark finning, street dog abuse, seal slaughter and animal testing.
"If you follow my music, you know I'm a bit of a jackass. But this is one part of my life I take really seriously. Helping animals has always been my goal."
Because of her unwavering commitment to animal welfare Ke$ha will receive the prestigious Wyler Award at the Humane Society of the United States Genesis Awards benefit this year!
Senior director of the HSUS' Hollywood outreach program said:
"She's always willing to speak out and lend her name and voice for issues we're addressing at the time. She has such a wide international reach."
We're so glad there are people like Ke$ha who really care about the animals so much.
She could just be touring, making money, doing drugs and just living her life.
But she cares too much to just sit by and let injustices continue to be done to animals.
Way to go, gurrrrl!!
