There's a real-life Batman living in Florida. The guy is just as brave, strong and helpful, though he primarily rescues our furry friends. Chris Van Dorn is a 27-year-old guy who has made up his mind to make a difference in the lives of stray animals.
Several years ago he founded the nonprofit animal rescue Batman4Paws. The guy helps stray and shelter animals find loving owners.
Chris came up with the idea of helping animals in trouble a long time ago. In 2014, Van Dorn rescued an Australian Shepherd which he found wandering in the woods of Alabama in a poor condition. The doggie named Mr. Boots was adopted by Chris.
Since then Chris has been helping dogs and cats roaming the streets or living in shelters. He takes strays to no-kill shelters where they are given necessary vet assistance and are prepared for moving in with new families. Van Dorn also rescues the pets doomed to be put to sleep to give them a chance at a new life.
Batman does very important job. First, he educates people on the importance to take animals from the streets and shelters instead of buying them. Secondly, Chris helps to transport the lucky ones to their new owners who cannot to get to the shelter.
Van Dorn usually drives his own car, an old Honda. Of course, sometimes Batman has to fly by plane as such a car can't cover a huge distance. Chris hopes that in the future he will be able to buy a van to transport more dogs and cats.
Van Dorn could do his job without the superhero outfit, but he's loved the Batman comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of becoming like him. The bright image also helps to draw attention to the problem of neglected animals. Van Dorn's favorite part of this work is to take a photo with a new happy owner of a rescue pet!
