Anderson has long been involved in animal rights and has worked for the organization PETA for many years. In 2011, she was named “Name of the Year” by the animal welfare organization.
While Anderson is being honored, Kim Kardashian recently received criticism from PETA, after she posted a picture where she swam with dolphins.
Pamela Anderson has previously said that her commitment to animals saved her after she fell victim to horrific child abuse.
– My loyalty was with the animal kingdom, and I promised myself that I would protect them and only them. I prayed for the whales, who were my only real friends before I had children, she said at the time, according to the Swedish newspaper.
