Petco Foundation Gala

Guest of Honor

Hilary Swank - Guest of Honor

Ms. Hilary Swank

This year, the Petco Foundation Hope Award, which celebrates the spirit of hope through a life dedicated to promoting the pet human bond, was presented to Ms. Hilary Swank.

"It's an honor to be recognized as an advocate for animals by such a respected organization as the Petco Foundation. This Hope Award is a reminder that we all need to individually come together in order to collectively bring hope and make a difference for animals, animal welfare, and animal rights. For even one person's vision and efforts today can have a lasting impact that will make a difference in the lives of these souls for many tomorrows."
