Ian Somerhalder Building Animal Sanctuary To Help Troubled Children

Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is building an animal sanctuary with hopes of helping kids who have behavioral issues.

The actor is a long time animal activist, and has lead charges in his native Canada against the killing of baby seals in the past.

Through his own non-profit eco organization, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF), Ian is putting together the plans  to build a green sanctuary, which  the goals of helping troubled kids learn to co-operate with their peers by handling animals.
Somerhalder told E! Online, “It’s all about collaboration and compassion. If you can empower someone who’s really young, who’s had a really tough go at it, to find compassion by using animals – because it’s so much easier than with people – then you have something.”

“Now you’ve started to engage these kids and they’ll learn not to fight. They really realize what a full life you can have if you just get rid of those demons that we all have.”
