To me animal welfare is very important. I try to help every animal in need that crosses my path, worldwide. Together we can do so much more, that’s why Wings for Animals was founded in 2015.
Working as a flight attendant I have been in touch with stray animals and animals in distress in many countries. Doing nothing wasn’t an option. Many raindrops will make that river flow… Therefore: Wings for Animals!
I’m Piet Hellemans, veterinarian and media-vet in several tv shows in The Netherlands and I write for websites and magazines. My goal is to enhance animal well-being and help people and organisations who care for them.
Animals deserve our care, attention and protection. As a retired KLM Captain I am well aware of the fantastic job Wing for Animals does to ensure this. As webmaster I can contribute, even though I am not actively flying anymore.
Since 2013 I have been working as a veterinarian, with a great preference for surgery. After a number of successful sterilisation campaigns I look forward to future projects together with Wings for Animals!
Since Wings for Animals was founded I have been collecting (medical) supplies. In addition, I raise money through lotteries and packaging vouchers at supermarkets. Every animal we save is one!
Since 2001 I’m employed as a pilot. Loving animals is in my nature. Living with and caring for animals is part of who I am. I think it is our job to stand up for the rights and welfare of the animals that depend on us.
I love supporting the people who are so concerned with improving animal welfare around the world. And so indirectly to be able to contribute a small part.
After working for KLM for almost 30 years, I consciously chose to become a volunteer at Wings for Animals. I have a great love for animals and nature and I believe in education and information of young people to gain more attention for other living beings and their vulnerability.
Wings for Animals combines these insights and that is why I am proud to be part of this foundation.
Animals are dependent on us and at the mercy of the situations they find themselves in. That’s why I volunteer at Wings for Animals Foundation to help provide these animals with more hope. Become a donor or volunteer and help us in our fight for more awareness in animal welfare and support for organizations that work so hard for these defenseless animals!!
