Farewell to the great Robin Williams, a true animal lover & vegan

Farewell to the great Robin Williams, a true animal lover & vegan.

Lovely, sweet and kind are just some of the adjectives friends have used to describe the incomparable Robin Williams. And, if they could find the words, it's likely his furry friends would describe the late actor in much the same way.

His adopted Pug, Leonard, had almost more of a presence than the actor himself on Williams' Instagram page. Together Leonard and Williams appeared as "Mr. August" in a calendar of dogs and celebrity owners to benefit the Tony LaRussa Animal Rescue. Leonard and Williams also supported a cancer organization together.

Williams wrote from the voice of his family's dogs requesting that they "Please Stop Traveling" in a book called Tails of Devotion. Proceeds of the sale of this book benefited five nonprofits dedicated to animal care and rescue.

Happiness overruled though when the dog lover was in the company of the canine kind – like that time Verna Pearl bared her cleavage at the The Crazy Ones premiere.

He even made monkeys smile! Crystal the capuchin says cheese as she sits in the lap of the comedian, who reprised his role of Theodore Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, due later this year.

In What Dreams May Come, Williams played a character who entered heaven to meet his deceased Dalmatian, now young again. He even liked to play with dog toys himself.

The late actor made one of his last public appearances at the San Francisco Zoo on June 6 when they honored Williams by naming one of their Howler Monkeys after him.

In one of his last posts on Instagram, he wrote about his day at the zoo: “Feeding ‘Robin Williams’ @sanfranciscozoo. He’s their newest [Howler] Monkey, named after me!”

Williams is also a strong proponent of the raw vegan food movement.

Thank you for spreading so much laughter and love of animals to the world.

Rest in peace, Robin Williams.
