In 2013, The HSUS honored her with the Wyler Award, which recognizes a celebrity or public figure for increasing awareness of animal issues via the media.
“Advocating for animals is second nature to me,” Ke$ha said in response to the honor. “My affinity with animals and the natural world inspires me and my music. I don’t understand how anyone can justify abusing or exploiting animals, and as long as it continues, I intend to keep talking about it.”
Ke$ha’s goal is to encourage respect and compassion for animals nationally and around the world.
“We are all animals,” Ke$ha said. “One of the main underlying sentiments of my music is to respect all living creatures just as they are. I believe that together, we can change laws that allow innocent animals to be unjustly mistreated and abused all over the world.”
