Meet Arthur Benjamin, animal activist, philanthropist, business executive and his service dog Bandit. His foundations—The Arthur E. Benjamin Foundation and American Dog Rescue Foundation—have saved hundreds of thousands of animals, many within hours of being euthanized, matching many of them with new families. He’s raised millions of dollars for dog rescue, worked to raise awareness and money for no-kill shelters, for neutering and spaying of local animals and international street dogs, and rescuing pets left behind from hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes. His foundations have helped pay for life-saving animal surgeries, to bring home dogs from Iraq and Afghanistan to be reunited with their veteran owners, to place dogs in prisons to be trained as service dogs for veterans. He personally went to Canada to help save the seals, founded one of the ten largest aquariums in the United States, has given major donations to breast cancer research and other diseases, and paid for inner-city education, as well as funding research and assistance for people in need and animals in jeopardy. Arthur Benjamin’s memoir, co-written by Paulette Cooper Noble, spans a life well-lived in his endeavors to save groups of dogs and exposing man’s cruelty to many species, including baby seals, whales, pigs, and chickens not only in the United States but around the globe. Enjoy the photo gallery that provides a glimpse into Arthur Benjamin life. It includes pictures of his late wife, Gail, and their family, Hollywood animal rights supporters, and the philanthropists who support the many charities devoted to the worthy causes to which Arthur Benjamin has devoted his life.
