Bones star Emily Deschanel has been announced as the national spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals. The vegan actress hopes to raise $1 million in donations for Farm Sanctuary. All proceeds will support efforts to rescue and care for abused farm animals, as well as lobbying for legislative improvements in animal welfare. “Farm animals are just as interesting and intelligent as the dogs and cats who we know a bit better,” Deschanel says in a Walk for Farm Animals video. “Yet they are treated by the meat industry as though they are inanimate objects with no feelings or personalities.” More than 35 cities across the US and Canada will host the series of fundraising and outreach events this year.
