Congratulations to Kesha! The ‘C’Mon’ singer and avid animal (and Animal) lover will be honored with the Wyler Award at the Humane Society’s annual Genesis Awards.

Kesha will be recognized for her endless work supporting animals worldwide, a cause that she’s made no secret about being close to her glitter-covered heart. The Wyler Award is dedicated each year to a celebrity or public figure who uses the media to increase awareness of animal issues.

The Cannibal Queen is pretty much a shoe-in for the honor, as she is not only an outspoken animal advocate, but also the Humane Society’s very first global ambassador.

Kesha’s work includes raising awareness about street dogs, seal and lion hunting, shark finning, dogfighting and cruelty-free cosmetics, among others, and even created a faux fur line to discourage wearing the real thing. She’s recorded PSAs and even dedicates a portion of her website each month to a new animal issue.

“It means so much to me to be recognized by the Humane Society of the United States because advocating for animals is second nature to me,” she said in a statement. “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.”
