Hilary Swank and Edie Falco Honored at ASPCA’s 18th Annual Bergh Ball

While the duo may have a few Oscars, Golden Globes and a couple SAG awards to boot, Hilary Swank and Edie Falco can now add one more award: the ASPCA’s Voice For Animals Award.

The women received the award for dedicating “considerable time and energy to help animals in crisis.”

“My present dog Sami was rescued from a puppy mill,” Falco told NY Daily News. “When I met her, I was deeply moved by the look of abject fear and confusion on her little face. I wanted to be the one to help change that for her.”
