Blink-182, Miley Cyrus and AFI's Davey Havok have all been honored for their investment in animal rights with wins at this year's Libby Awards, organized by PETA's youth arm peta2. 

Blink-182 edged out Matt & Kim, Tonight Alive and Farewell, My Love to be named the most animal-friendly band of 2016. The award is given out based on the nominees' enthusiasm for being animal-friendly, their fans' interest and online voting. 

The band's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are both vegans and new member Matt Skiba is a vegetarian. 

Otherwise, Havok was given the hero of the year for animals award, winning over Jhené Aiko, Liam Hemsworth and Corey Fogelmanis. Cyrus was named the best voice for animals, beating out Sia, Raury and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein of Misfits for the honor.
