Katie’s organization “Peace 4 Animals” helps to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for domestic animals and also educates the public on the importance of rescuing animals from your local shelter rather than buying them from breeders or pet stores. Peace 4 Animals also educates the public on how to co-exist with wild and endangered species and how to protect these animals in their natural habitats. They also strive to increase awareness by educating the public to put an end to the abuse, neglect and disrespect of all of our planet’s inhabitants.
