We look up to her, to this amazing and strong woman. She gets sh*t done.


Her heart beats loud and fierce for the animals. And it is for them that she fights. And oh, how she fights. While she stands her ground and knows her stuff, she does not shy away from an intense discussion on animal rights with politicians or talk show hosts or from going straight after an animal abuser.


In front of situations at peril, she gets on her broom and flies straight into the core of the fire, where she saves lives and brings change for the better. The things she has accomplished in favor of the animals are numerous. We all have a deep admiration for her and are proud and grateful to be part of her team.


Karen, thank you for being here and for all that you do. Your work is vital for the world we all dream of, a world in which humans and more than humans live side by side in harmony.
