Because he's the hero (the world) deserves. 

Meet 27-year-old Chris Van Dorn, the newly-famed masked crusader! Chris launched a nonprofit organization, Batman4Paws, in 2018. He's always loved animals and Batman, so why not combine the love for both and create something special and unique?

Man Was Standing On The Street For Two Days With a Sign Trying To Reunite Lost Dog With Owner

When Jason Gasparik from North Carolina found a lost dog wandering around his area few days ago, he did everything he could to reunite the canine with his owner — and we mean everything. Along with checking the pet for a microchip and posting about the lost dog across all of his social media accounts and several lost pet Facebook pages, Gasparik went a step further and stood on a street corner near where the dog was found with the pooch and sign.

While the idea of killing our beloved canine companions for meat seems appalling to us, it's been a norm for particular cultures. There is a festival in China known as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, a week-long event that takes place every year. It is estimated that millions of dogs are killed for this festival. Marc Ching, an American activist, has made it his mission in life to rescue dogs from slaughterhouses. In the process, he has been beaten, threatened, and even detained by authorities. But Marc Ching is, thankfully, vigilant in seeing his goal through. 

All the dogs Marc Ching has rescued have been taken to shelters and to the foster care organizations to help find furr-ever homes for the cherished canines. Because of Ching's strong morals and constant action, he inspired activists around the globe and has brought awareness to what is happening. Thanks to Ching, fewer and fewer dogs are dying at the festival. 

You can read more about Marc Ching's cause on his non-profit Facebook page and how you can help! Thank you, Marc Ching, for being the voice for these beautiful pups.

Youtuber's Service Dog Tragically Dies After Staying At Pet Hotel PetSmart

Toronto YouTuber Corey Dixon announced via Twitter that his best friend and family member, 4-year-old service dog Aspen, had sadly died after falling ill during a weeklong stay at a PetSmart pet hotel. Dixon also stated that his vet informed him that Aspen died of severe pneumonia. Something that was overlooked while staying at PetSmart. While PetSmart has retaliated saying that Aspen's death was due to pre-existing conditions...

Makes us wonder, just how qualified are these PetHotels to be trusted to take care of our loved ones?
