Animal Avengers is my non-profit that I started in 2001. I ran it as a dog & cat rescue in LA for 10 years. Then I put it on hold until I could find a way to help the animals in a bigger way. This 2015 I decided that the animals that are in danger of going extinct need our help now before it's too late. So I emerged myself in the wildlife scene in Africa to shed a light on the real issues at hand and try to figure out ways I could help.
Moving forward I will be working in various capacities in Africa, with a targeted aim in South Africa. I believe that working alongside government is the most efficient way to make change in the largest capacity. So my projects moving forward are aimed at doing just that.

I started Animal Avengers in 2001 as an animal rescue in Los Angeles, California. I ran it that way for 10 years and we saved thousands of dogs and cats during that time. We would get them off the streets, out of the pounds, get them whatever medical care and training they needed and find them good, loving, permanent homes.
After 10 years of running that as an active rescue, I paused to revamp the mission of the charity.
I have recently moved into the conservation space and have transitioned Animal Avengers into a slightly different format. Our current Mission Statement reads as follows:
The specific and primary purpose for which this organization is formed is to protect, conserve and save as many animals (with a particular focus on wildlife in Africa) on this planet as possible through strategic collaborations, financial aid, engagement with policy makers, hands on work in the field, education and tactical planning/execution for the future.
Everything will always be very transparent on my site. I will document how much has been raised at any given time and exactly how the money has been spent. I think this is the new way everyone should be doing things. This is what will make donors feel comfortable with who and what they are donating to. I'll always get as much proof through photos and receipts as possible to post as well. I'd love for this template to be the new way all non-profits operate in the future.
I'd also like to note that after my trip I will come back and build the new Animal Avengers website and work on a new logo. Everything must be updated to reflect our new mission and goals. But I didn't want that to delay me now. Too many animals are getting poached, hunted and killed everyday. At the rate the elephants and rhino are getting poached, they will all be completely gone within 10 years if drastic measures aren't taken and this barbaric torture doesn't stop.
If anyone would like to get more involved and donate their time helping in any capacity, please email me through this site. The more help I can get when needed, the faster I can work and the more animals that can hopefully get saved. We all need to come together for this common goal so that good can ultimately prevail!
Thank you all for your support, love and donations. Some of you have stood by me no matter what all these years, throughout a long journey of ups and downs. I can't thank you enough. It doesn't go unnoticed. I'm sorry if I haven't always responded to you on social media. But I do run all my own accounts and try to get in a good handful of responses each time I go on. And I do try to read as much as possible. So please keep helping me spread awareness, love and happiness in this world. We're all in it together and making our time here as productive and fulfilling as possible is all anyone can ask for.
Love to you all!
