Help Batman Rescue Animals!

Hello there! My name is Chris, but you can call me Batman, and I am raising money for my 501(c)(3) animal rescue nonprofit called Batman4Paws.

Our story:

It all started around 2014 when my dad decided to adopt a rescue dog.  A quick search of the Internet turned up a wide-eyed, happy go lucky, super chill, tri-colored Australian Shepherd. It just so happened that this Australian Shepherd was no ordinary Aussie. He had quite the back-story. He was found wandering around the woods in Alabama emaciated and covered in fleas and ticks. With the help of Dog Liberator and another nonprofit named PilotsnPaws, as well as pilot extraordinaire Jeff Bennett, they organized and facilitated the transportation and rescue of this scruffy looking pooch.

As Jeff flew this motley looking Aussie to his new foster home he dubbed him Mr. Boots on account of his big old paws. It was coincidentally around this time that I was on the final stretch of earning my own Private Pilots License. Mr.Bootsie's story inspired me to want to give back and help other animals in need too. It took me some major thinking while in the shower but it finally hit me and I came up with a way of taking my passion of flying and combining it with my love of animals.

As a child I looked up to the values that super heroes 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. 

What we do:

To make my dream reality, I established Batman4Paws as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to rescue and transport dogs, cats, and other animals in need to furever homes, no-kill facilities, and foster homes throughout the state of Florida and beyond. Transports are done personally by me (Batman!) using any means necessary, although I prefer to fly.

How you can help:

We've set a new goal of $15,000 to bring our mission to more animals.  Here's a look at what your donations can do:

Goal #1 - $1,000 will bring Batman on around 15 rescue missions
Goal #2 - $3,000 will aid in around 45 missions
Goal #3 - $5,000 will aid in over 75 missions

Think of what $15,000 can do!

Funds donated will be sent directly to Batman4Paws and used mainly for well fare and transportation expenses for dogs, cats and other animals to no-kill shelters, fosters and fur-ever homes!
