Piper Wood who is the founder of the “Hand in Paw” organization got a call on a Saturday. The call was coming from her friend that spotted a homeless man who needed help to take care of his Chihuahua dog. The man was named Hector and the only thing he wanted was a dog license for his Chihuahua. Luckily for him, Piper did so much more than that!
20. Hector and Amy
This man is Hector and his little friend is called Amy. Despite being homeless, Hector is taking good care of Amy. However, he is afraid that the police might take his Chihuahua away from him because he doesn’t have a proper licensing.
19. Dog Licensing
Even though Hector loves his dog very much, he is not able to get a proper licensing because he doesn’t own a home. Seeing how much Hector cares for his little friend, Pepper Wood decided to give him a helping hand. Check out what she had to say about this.
18. A Helping Hand
Wood says that she was amazed to see how much Hector cares for his pet. Not only that, but Hector didn’t want anything for himself and only wanted to be with his dog. Most homeless people would ask for some change in instances like this, but Hector didn’t. This is why Wood decided to ask people for donations in order to help Hector.
Wood promised Hector that she is going to take care of Amy’s licensing issue. However, Pepper decided to do something more when she asked for donations. You won’t believe what the woman bought for Hector and Amy!
16. A Stroller
The woman who was helping Hector knew that Amy didn’t have a place to sleep in since Hector was homeless. Therefore, she bought them a stroller. You won’t believe what she had to say about this.
15. Safe Place
“It’s just the beginning, but he was just so happy to have a cart to put her in. He put her in the front with a bunch of blankets, and he was able to put his belongings in the back” said Wood. You won’t believe what Wood promised to do next!
14. Dental Work
Wood also wants to get Amy spayed and to get her some dental work. This is an amazing gesture of kindness that Wood is making, but she is happy to do it after seeing how happy Hector and Amy are together. Keep reading to see how emotional Hector got after Wood gave him the stroller.
13. Emotional Moment
“Thank you, sister. You are the only family I got”, said Hector after receiving the stroller and help for Amy. This made Wood tear up but sadly, Hector is not the only homeless man that needs help for his dog.
12. Homeless People and Dogs
There are thousands of homeless people on the streets and they don’t have anyone. The only real friends and family members they have is their pets.
11. Unconditional Love
Dogs offer unconditional love and this is why they are known as “a man’s best friend”. Sadly, these homeless people don’t have anything to eat for themselves which makes it even more difficult to keep their dogs healthy. But it all comes down to this…
Even though life might be hard for these people, their dogs are never going to run away. Just look at this picture and see how these two sleep in each other’s arms, this is true love. You won’t believe how much this next homeless man cares for his puppy.
9. Sharing and Umbrella
Despite the rain pouring on both of them, this homeless man is making sure that his dog can sleep peacefully. This shows us how strong the bond between a man and his pet can be!
8. Best Friends
You can tell by the way he is petting his dog that he cares for him. Life is not fair, and some people have it harder than most. This is why we should consider doing this next thing…
7. Helping Out
Everyone should consider lending a helping hand to homeless people because that will make their day! The only thing they have is their pets and they need some help to take care of them.
6. True Love
This is what true love and commitment look like. This man is called Chuck and he told the photographer that he wishes to get a job in order to afford good food and clothes for his dog. I need to warn you that the upcoming picture is heartbreaking!
5. Begging for Food
The worst thing about this picture is that you can’t even tell who looks sadder. The dog or the man?
4. “Will Work for Bones”
The “Will work for bones” scribbling on the cardboard says it all! Let’s hope someone gave this man some work.
3. Dog and Rabbit
Unlike the previous pictures, this one is a bit uplifting. This man’s dog is eating some good food while strangers are showing his bunny some attention.
2. Homeless Woman
This homeless woman and her dog are located in Dublin and despite the weather being freezing cold, she put all her blankets on her dog. She is showing sacrifice and love towards her only friend.
1. Dog Comes First
“My dog comes first” is something that every dog owner would say and this homeless man is no exception. Sadly, the world is not pretty and some people’s lives are not as good as others. However, if everyone gave a helping hand every now and then maybe the world would be a better place.
