Real Life Batman Gives Freedom Rides to Shelter Animals

This is so cute! I am such a #GratefulKat!

"The man behind the mask is Chris Van Dorn, a 27-year-old vegan who grew up watching “Batman: The Animated Series.” In 2018, he founded the nonprofit Batman4Paws in Orlando, Florida.

“I liked that Batman was mysterious and stood for a symbol that was incorruptible and stood for good. I really admired that,” he told TODAY. “That’s what I wanted Batman4Paws to be: something that’s there just to be good. To try to do the best you can and stay true to the path.”

On his most recent transport, Van Dorn spent several days driving four dogs from Florida to Vermont, including two pit bull puppies named Ace and Zeus. Tomorrow he’ll drive a Labrador retriever and a schnauzer mixed breed to North Carolina.

“I’m just trying to do the best I can in the time I’ve got to help as many 'puppers' find their homes — and cats, too. Any animal in need, honestly,” he said."
