Last month, news broke that Hilary Swank would host The Great American Dog-a-Thon on Fox. Today, Swank gets a co-host, Jane Lynch, and the special gets a new title, Fox’s Cause For Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular.
The revamped, two-hour special celebrating rescue dogs will allow viewers at home to donate to the Petfinder Foundation and adopt and foster dogs in need. It will feature viral videos starring rescue dogs and an awards segment, which, for example, will hand out the “Shelter Hero of the Year” Award.
Kristin Chenoweth, Whitney Cummings, Max Greenfield, Kathy Griffin, Julianne Hough, Randy Jackson, Cesar Millan, Jerry O’Connell, Kelly Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne, P!nk, Amber Riley, Rebecca Romijn, Emmy Rossum, and Jenna Dewan Tatum are also new to the program, joining celebrities previously announced.
Swank and Michael Levitt are executive producing the program. Cause For Paws airs Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 27, at 8-10 pm ET/PT on Fox.
