About the Author: Great Big Story


  1. This is truly amazing. As a British Iraqi, I’ve never met an Arab who cares so much about animals. This work is inspiring. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. Um… what about the people who need to be evacuated from warzones?

    I mean, this is great and all, but people should always be on top of animals.

  3. I need to get rich ASAP. I hate seeing these great places like Four Paws and not being able to give them the help they deserve.

  4. Children of all races, cultures, and religions innately love animals as equals and are attracted to them. That is, until they are corrupted by adults to devalue other animals as "subhuman" and taught to regard other animals as "things," "property," "resources" for political, economic, and religious reasons—these are all the reasons why (but not limited to these only) people come to hate each other, attack each other, etc, because of differences. Being "different" does not make anyone "less than" or "subhuman," and the same goes for how we regard and treat other-than-human animals. They are not "less than" human. That is a discredited belief, not a fact about the real world.

  5. God bless you. What brave work and incredible message. So touching and even more pressing in the world today. We all need to save the animals from war AND the devastation we are creating in the environment. How can we support Four Paws?

  6. shit the animals stuck in warzones like this literally never crossed my mind. you guys are doing God's work and I salute you. the world needs more heroes like you

  7. Entire place where human being live is warzone for Ants, and at least 100k of Ants population are killed by Humans everyday.
    This is so sad :(((
