Victoria Doramus has had many successes in her life but knows what it is like to hit rock bottom. While she was recovering from drug addiction, she realized that helping others would be critical in her own road to recovery. She also feels very strongly about helping unwanted animals, which is why she gives support to the Best Friend’s Animal Shelter. This organization’s purpose is to one day end the killing of all unwanted animals in every animal shelter in the nation.
In the 1980’s it was the norm to kill most of the animals who showed up at animal shelters. Starting with the old and sick, millions of animals were put down every year. There were several friends who were disgusted with this practice and they worked together to find a safe place to shelter and care for these unwanted animals. The friends found homes for most of the animals they helped, and the ones who remained unwanted were sheltered and cared for the rest of their lives. this was how the Best Friend’s Animal Society got its start.
The reason philanthropist Victoria Doramus supports the shelter is that she feels strongly that even animals that are having a hard time to place with a family deserve to live, as well as the old and sick animals. The organization is now able to help over a thousand animals at a time by providing them with food, water, shelter, and their medical needs. The animals are also shown love and care.
Victoria Doramus feels that both animals and humans must have someone to care for them and must be shown love in order to thrive. Best Friends Animal Shelter has been able to save many more animals over the years by working with animal shelters and support groups across the nation. They hold events with the sole purpose of finding homes for the animals.
