Hilary Swank is putting her animal appreciation to work as an ambassador for a pet adoption campaign.

The two-time Academy Award-winning actress said Wednesday that the Iams Home 4 the Holidays Pet Adoption Campaign has "struck a chord with my heart."

Her mission is to help 1.5 million pets in shelters find homes between Oct. 1 and Jan. 4.

Swank says older animals have just as much love as younger ones and have "already gone through a lot of the training that can be challenging for people."

Swank also notes that it's possible to adopt a purebred from a shelter if people have their heart set on a particular breed.
