Ian Somerhalder Seeks Funds for Sanctuary Center

The animal-friendly actor is reaching out to fans to help complete his sanctuary and rehabilitation facility.

Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder is vocal about his love for animals, and now he needs the help of his followers and fellow animal lovers to help him complete his new animal sanctuary project. In April, he announced plans to convert a Louisiana ranch into the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Animal Sanctuary, a rehabilitation center that would not only provide care to neglected and abused animals, but also aid youth in overcoming behavioral problems through interspecies interaction. On Wednesday, Somerhalder tweeted a plea to fans to contribute to the sanctuary if possible, with a goal of raising a total of $5 million. On his website, he declares, “We believe in the understanding that all living creatures deserve dignity, love, compassion and the right to life.”
