Batman Is Real And He's Saving Cats And Dogs And Bringing Them To Their Furever Home

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? Since the launch of Batman4Paws, Chris has embarked on numerous journeys all across the country in order to rescue animals from euthanasia and find them their furever home. 

Batman4Paws helps rescue and transport animals in need to furever homes, no-kill facilities, and foster homes throughout the state of Florida and beyond. Transports are done personally by Batman himself using any means necessary.

Read Chris's full story on his GoFundMe page! 

Not all heroes wear capes.. but this one does.

    Chris wrote on his GoFundMe page, "As a child, I looked up to the values that superheroes such as Batman reflected and thought that would be the perfect vessel to embody the spirit of goodwill. Thus, the crazy idea of Batman4Paws was born. I would help rescue animals in need anyway I can, all while dressed as the Dark Knight himself and becoming a symbol for helping those in need."

    Currently, his Batmobile used for these rescue missions is a humble Honda Accord, but hes hoping to upgrade his transport in the near future!

    With an upgrade in transport, Chris will be able to efficiently take more animals on his rescue missions.

    Batman operates within a 500-mile radius of his home in Orlando, Florida, but will travel even further if necessary

    According to the Batman4Paws site, "[Batman] likes to stay within 500 miles of his home base in Orlando, Florida but has been known to extend his ring of service if the need arises and he is available to make it happen. He's gone all the way to Vermont and back before! He hopes to expand his reach as his rescue grows," the site also adding, "Once a transport day is set and the furry friend has all their paperwork, he picks up the animal in need and brings it to safety."

    Humble Chris recently told the media, “I would say I’m just the middleman, the real heroes are the people giving these dogs a good, loving home.”

    And while Chris knows that dressing up as the masked crusader isn't necessary to save the animals, it helps him open up a dialogue about the importance of adoption and fostering.
