Named one of People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful People” and a finalist in the premiere season of “America’s Next Top Model,” model, host, actress and animal rights activist, Katie Cleary, is the founder of PEACE 4 ANIMALS, a non-profit Animal Welfare Organization that protects all animals against harmful human interference around the globe through public awareness and education as well as rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for domestic animals.

World Animal News was founded in 2013 by Model/Actress turned Philanthropist/Filmmaker Katie Cleary. Cleary discovered there was an urgent need to spread awareness to save animals around the globe on a grand scale. We have CNN, BBC, NBC and all of these major networks for human interest stories, but what about the over 8.7 million different species we share this planet with? Something needs to be done to help all those who don’t have a voice. That is why I started World Animal News.

Give Me Shelter is a film to raise awareness for the most important animal welfare issues around the world. This award winning documentary created and produced by Katie Cleary with a directorial debut by Kristin Rizzo sheds light on the work that many different individuals and animal welfare organizations do in a way that has never been done before. The movie exposing the stark reality of such crucial issues facing our world today such as the underground black market trade of wild and exotic animals, puppy mills, poaching, animal abuse and neglect, the fur industry, circus, seal clubbing, horse slaughter, the palm oil industry, shark finning, the pet industry and so on.
