This man dressed in a Batman costume managed in his decision to save the lives of numerous animals threatened with certain death by euthanasia.
This big fan of the action-adventure game Caped Crusader, named Chris Van Dorn, at the age of 27, had previously volunteered and selflessly helped several organizations in Orlando, Florida, who had the same goal, that is to save as many animals as possible from the harsh everyday life. The importance of developing people’s awareness of adopting pets rather than buying them was emphasized by wearing the Batman’s well-known costume.
Chris for The Dodo website that focuses on the protection of animal rights said: “It’s kind of just how to embody all the good things I wanted to do in the world,” explains: “and make it easy for people to talk to me right off the bat. ”
Van Dorn dressed in this costume transported the rescued, adopted animals to their homes where they would be treated with more love and attention, far away from the shelters where they expected a bad fate. Thanks to this suit, he quickly started talking to people about why it is important to adopt pets, and at the same time wearing the suit, he wanted to remain anonymous by doing the good deeds, even though it did not work for a long time because in May he was listed as GoFundMe Hero who works part-time, and on that occasion was revealed his true identity.
A large number of dogs were rescued by him because he traveled many miles across the state, and those dogs instead of being euthanized were taken care by families who were willing to give them much love. He did all this in the framework of his non-profit organization called Batman4Paws, founded in 2018. For a period of 10 months, with the help of the crowdfunding page, $ 32,000 was collected for Van Dorn rescue missions, but the article on the GoFundMe website was very helpful.
In the article, Van Dorn declared, “When I was first starting out, I was keeping everything really anonymous,” he explains: “I would sign everything ‘Bruce Wayne’ and not put my real name out there… My catchphrase is, ‘It’s not who I’m underneath but what I’m doing that defines me ‘and I still hold that true today. “Now Van Dorn is trying to solve the problem of the mode of transport because the current vehicle – Honda Accord, or Bet Mobile, is too limited in terms the capacity of animals that can be transported.
Therefore, Van Dorn hopes that a great animal lover will appear, who will want to give a larger van for the benefit of the animals. This man along with his dog Mr. Boots, which is actually a therapy dog, cause a smile on the faces of sick individuals in hospitals across Florida, and pose as Batman and Robin.
Van Dorn is capable of flying a plane, and he is a trained pilot for which he has a permit, so he hopes that soon he will be able to transport the rescued dogs by plane to their new homes, and thus reduce the stress in dogs, and at the same time provide faster transport.
Organizing events for raising funds for the maintenance of shelters for animals and for the adoption of animals, this excellent tandem donated its costumes for this purpose. This wonderful man is constantly active, and gives people every day a variety of flyers and brochures emphasizing the importance of adoption, and with his costume of Batman it is not very difficult to attract attention. If you decide to open your hearts and want to donate to Vand Dorn’s non-profit organization, it’s enough to visit the Batman4Paws website, and you will get all the necessary information there.
