What's the motto of Dallas, Texas—America's unofficial big hair capital? "Live Large. Think Big." Dallas property whiz Ari Nessel makes that motto his maxim. He encourages residents to "live large" at swanky apartments refurbished by his company, Nessel Development, and he "thinks big" about animals and the environment when developing new rental properties.
For his efforts to promote animal rights and protect the environment, Ari Nessel has earned PETA's "Compassionate Company" Proggy Award.
He joins other caring individuals, companies, and charities—such as U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich, and Payless Shoe Source—that are working to make this world a better place for the people and animals who inhabit it.
