Guy Dressed as Batman Has Rescued Dozens of Shelter Pets From Euthanasia

Not all heroes wear capes, except in this case.

A 27-year-old from Florida named Chris Van Dorn has been donning a Batman costume to rescue animals about to euthanized in shelters.

“It kind of just came as a way to embody all the good I wanted to do in the world,” Van Dorn told The Dodo, “and make it easy for people to talk to me right off the bat.”

He also suits up to transport dozens of animals from the shelter to their loving forever homes.

At first he used this suit to keep his missions anonymous – but his good deeds finally brought his real identity out into the open after he was featured as an honorary GoFundMe Hero.

 Carry on the superhero work Batman!
