For our first issue, we decided to share the story of a wonderful human being who has spent his life helping suffering dogs and animals – Sam Simon.

Sam Simon is an American producer, writer and director most well known for co-creating The Simpsons. Sam is an advocate for animal rights and has been involved with many campaigns and organisations throughout the years, such as PETA and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. In fact, Sam has set up his own charitable organisation, “The Sam Simon Foundation”, rescuing dogs and providing a variety of free programs and services, such as a mobile veterinary clinic, the Hearing Dog program and the Dogs for Veterans program.

In 2012 Sam was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but this hasn’t stopped him from continuing his work. On the contrary, upon his diagnosis Sam announced he would donate his fortune (including his Simpson’s royalties) to charity, stating ” my rich man’s hobby, I should say, is liberating animals from abusive situations such as roadside zoos and circuses.”
