Tippi Hedren has joined “Saving America’s Horses” as an Honorary Board member. Hedren’s status as a public figure will help to raise attention and bring the controversial subject matter of this film to the public eye.
Tippi Hedren is the former New York fashion model who débuted in a starring role in Hitchcock's classic “The Birds” where she earned her Golden Globe award. Between over twenty films and numerous television appearances, she's been involved in a wide variety of humanitarian and environmental causes, almost overshadowing her screen work. She has been honored with "The Helen Woodward Animal Center's Annual Humane Award" (1995), the prestigious Founder's Award from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (1996) and the "Lion and Lamb Award" from Wildhaven (1997) for her work on behalf of animal rights and conservation. Perhaps Tippi Hedren's most unique endeavor is being "den mother" and close friend to sixty-odd big cats - lion, tiger, leopard, cougar, and servals at The Roar Foundation's Shambala Preserve near Acton, California.
