“Bones” actress and animal activist Emily Deschanel is being honored for her work and leadership in protecting farm animals.

On June 2, Mercy for Animals will recognize Deschanel in Hollywood at their Justice for All: A Night for Creatures Big and Small party. The organization is dedicated to preventing animal cruelty to farmed animals, along with promoting passionate food choices and policies.

Whether it’s through her personal lifestyle or joining forces with organizations, for years now Deschanel has fought for animal rights.

An avid vegan, Deschanel even caused some concern when she became pregnant with her first child. She remained true to herself by eating vegan throughout her pregnancy, even when she was judged. “Saying no to meat makes me feel stronger inside; I feel aligned with my morals and ethics,” she said.

In 2011, the 35-year-old also teamed up with Farm Sanctuary to promote compassion for farm animals. She was even the official spokesperson for the 2011 Walk for Farm Animals.

“Farm animals are just as interesting and intelligent as the dogs and cats who we know a bit better…Yet they are treated by the meat industry as though they are inanimate objects with no feelings or personalities,” the actress said.

It’s pretty obvious why she is being honored. Congrats!

If you’re in the Hollywood area and want to attend, tickets are available.
