Victoria Doramus knows what it’s like to need a little help as a recovered addict, and she knows humans aren’t the only ones who need it sometimes. When Victoria Doramus realized how much helping others mattered in her life she began to support the animal welfare group Best Friends Animal Society. Animals need someone to love and care about them, just like humans.
It’s not just recovering addicts that need to be cared about and loved in order to survive, Victoria Doramus knows that it’s something that everyone needs. Best Friends Animal Society has helped thousands of animals receive the medical care that they need to survive so they can be adopted into a forever home. Victoria Doramus is a proud supporter of Best Friends and believes that no matter the age or medical status, all animals deserve to have someone in their lives that love them.
Through the Best Friends Network, adoption programs are organized throughout the country. In addition, they hold fundraising events and run educational campaigns for the public. Victoria Doramus believes in the work that they do and sees it as important for the welfare of animals throughout the United States.
According to patch.com, what started off as a small group of friends who took in a handful of the millions of animals destined to be put down at shelters in the ’80’s grew to a strong organization. During this time period, it is estimated that 17 million animals were killed in shelters every year. The animals at the most risk were the elderly and the sick.
These friends found homes for the animals that they took in after providing them with the much needed medical care that they required. Best Friends Animal Society and Victoria Doramus hope that someday no animals will be put to death by animal shelters because they cannot find a home.
