Back in 2014, notorious funny man Ricky Gervais said: "Animals don't have a voice.
"But I do. A loud one. I'm a fucking big mouth. My voice is for them. And I'll never shut up while they suffer."
And he's certainly lived up to his word.
He's called fox-hunters "posh twats", supported the petition opposing the puppy farm, he's been on a Twitter rant about the dog meat festival in South Korea and stood up against those who go on hunting safaris.
Here's our pick of the top 11 times Ricky Gervais has spread a little animal love and made the world a better place...
When he said what everyone was thinking about Sea World
And laughed in the face of the Government's fox-hunting vote
That time he took down leisure hunters
You know that feeling of joy someone gets when they put an arrow through a giraffe's eye.....No, me neither. pic.twitter.com/dnpjmkIIjf— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 20, 2015
And got deep about his proudest moments
The trophies I'm proudest of are the memories of all those times I didn't kill a beautiful, majestic, endangered species for no reason.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 18, 2015

That time he tweeted out an actual photo of karma

When he went in on the girl who took photos with dead animals
What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal & then lie next to it smiling? pic.twitter.com/DyYw1T5ck2— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 13, 2015
It must feel pretty tough to shoot an innocent animal that had no chance at all for absolutely no reason. pic.twitter.com/LVqUradslu— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) March 21, 2015
When he kissed puppies in a rescue home
That time he wrote an open letter to the intelligent people of the world
Dear intelligent people of the world,
don't get shampoo in your eyes.
It really stings.
Now fucking stop torturing animals.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) July 21, 2012
When he hilariously applauded hunters for their non-existent skills
Well done. You managed to shoot a stationery, 14 foot peaceful creature with a high velocity rifle. Very sporting. pic.twitter.com/Xuz7F5A3YT— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 11, 2015
And that time that he just posted a cute photo of a dog, because why wouldn't you?
