“Bones” actress Emily Deschanel was honored by The Humane Society of the United States last week with the “Humane Advocate Award”. The honor was given in recognition of her tireless efforts in speaking out on behalf of animal protection issues.

“I’m honored to receive this award, but we can all be effective animal advocates by simply adopting from a shelter or rescue group, refusing to wear fur, or going vegetarian for at least one day week,” says Emily. “When someone tells me they stopped eating chicken because of the Bones factory farming episode we did last year, I consider that a small victory.”

    If anyone deserves to win a Humane award, its Emily Deschanel. Girls need to look up to people like her not the train wrecks they do now.

    please Emily, urge people to go vegan for life, not vegetarian for one day a week, even if its great if people do that. Yeah yeah, i know ,”babysteps” but same same, often its harder to make countles baby steps than to make one big step, wether its stopping with smoking, or stopping consuming animal products.
