Despite various injuries to every part of his body – he once stapled his scrotum to his leg, let’s not forget – the stuntman’s heart appears to be intact, especially when animals are involved.

Steve-O, 48, is in the middle of the Canadian leg of his North American Bucket List tour and while in town last week, he stopped by the Toronto Humane Society to help out.

He made a contribution that covered the cost of adopting a dozen animals – so they all got a forever home. He also helped put 11 other animals on hold for adoption.

Steve-O’s personal appearance at THS also meant that thousands of people had been raised for animal society.

And he left behind an autographed t-shirt which is being auctioned off by the THS as another animal welfare fundraiser.

Steve-O is almost as well known for his animal activism as he is for fun things like setting himself on fire or placing his penis in a wasp’s nest.

He recently told Us Magazine that he and his fiancee Lux Wright don’t have kids, but plan to help animals instead.

“Instead, what we want to do is just dedicate ourselves to helping animals. So we have a plan to buy a big property and open our own animal sanctuary,” he told the magazine. .

Their goal is to create this animal sanctuary somewhere in British Columbia.

For now, the couple have three cats, three dogs and three goats in their Hollywood Hills California home.

The Bucket List Tour, meanwhile, arrives in Vancouver on October 22. There are 20 dates across Western Canada before the tour wraps up in Winnipeg on November 11.

The show is a mix of stand-up and filmed stunts.

“I’m doing my last licks before I’m too old to do this s—” he told GQ.

Steve-O also promoted a new book, A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I Learned from a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions.

It’s described partly as memoir and partly as a guide to life, love and work – and how to continue to thrive, “long after you’re dead”.
