PHOENIX- It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s real-life Batman!
No like for real.
Chris Van Dorn, otherwise known as the real-life Batman, dresses up like the Dark Knight himself and rescues animals in need.
A real-life superhero if you ask me so let’s just refer to him as Batman. Cool? Cool.
According to his website, Batman’s passion for saving animals started when his father adopted a rescue dog, Mr. Boots, that had endured some rough patches. They found the dog wandering around the woods in terrible shape but worked out a way to transport Mr. Boots to Batman’s home with the help of another nonprofit, PilotsnPaws.
This rescue produced the Batman-rescue idea and things took off from there.
Batman created a non-profit organization, Batman4Paws, in 2018. The organization works to rescue and transpors dogs, cats and other animals that are in need of safe places like a home, a foster home, a non-kill shelter, etc.
Batman4Paws uses funds donated to him for transportation means like gas and animal welfare expenses. Since the start of the organization, he has also created an adoption feature on the website. This feature allows the animal to be seen online so people can adopt if they want to.
Batman’s usual transportation schedule is on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays since he works on the weekends. Superhero by day (or weekday) and your Average Joe by night (or weekend).
