Hilary Swank to Host Dog Charity Telethon

2014 Telluride Film Festival - Day 2

Hilary Swank is all about love for the dogs.

It has been announced that Swank is set to host a star-studded television charity event in aid of rescue dogs.

The Great American Dog-a-Thon show will air on Thanksgiving and will include special guest appearances from Scarlett Johansson, Josh Duhamel, Fergie, Kesha, LeAnn Rimes and Kristen Bell.

Swank says, “I have long been an advocate for animal adoption and know first-hand the immense joy a shelter animal brings to our lives. Yet, every year more than four million animals are euthanized because of overcrowding in shelters. We are so fortunate to have an animal advocate in the Fox network that not only sees the need for more awareness surrounding this issue, but is willing to set aside a two-hour block for this important cause.”

The event is a two-hour TV special celebrating rescue dogs. During the broadcast, viewers will be invited to foster or adopt one of the pooches.

What a great cause! Will you be watching?
