Supporter spotlight: Thank you, Dominic!

Every day we are inspired by the efforts of individuals who are making this world a kinder place. Today we take our hats off to Dominic.

PUBLISHED ON: 12 September 2013

Dominic isn't able to join rallies. He can't collect petition signatures, or even compose an e-mail without difficulty. He suffers from an incurable illness that has rendered him bed-bound for more than 4 years. Yet, Dominic considers himself 'fortunate'. Why? Because he maintains that animals who are born into lives of misery in factory farms suffer far worse.

Dominic refuses to focus on what limits him and instead finds joy – and purpose – in helping our fellow species. He has a goal to raise $1,000 to help end the suffering of animals raised for food. Click here to chip in!

Dominic, your extraordinary compassion, optimism and fighting spirit humbles and inspires us all. "Thank you" is not enough to express our gratitude, on behalf of animals.
