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
And got deep about his proudest moments
When he called anyone who abuses animals 'scum'
That time he tweeted out an actual photo of karma
When he went in on the girl who took photos with dead animals
When he kissed puppies in a rescue home
That time he wrote an open letter to the intelligent people of the world
When he hilariously applauded hunters for their non-existent skills
And that time that he just posted a cute photo of a dog, because why wouldn't you?
