A father in the Philippines became curious about his son’s daily walks
and decided to tag along one day.
What he discovered was his son was helping to feed and care for several stray dogs
that were hungry and suffering from mange. Now the father is helping his son
care for the dogs and fulfill his dream of one day starting an animal shelter.
Reddit user “i_belive_in_pizza” posted to the popular forum about what he discovered
when he accompanied his son on one of his daily walks.
Every day for two weeks his son left their home in the rural Philippines carry a backpack.
When his son stopped at a point in the road a group of stray dogs came running towards him.
The dogs were hungry and appeared to be infected with mange.
Every day the young boy took food to the dogs and had gradually been gaining their trust.
The boy’s father was impressed with his son’s compassion
and posted about it to the popular forum, the post quickly began gaining
a lot of comments from people who were also touched and wanted to help.
The father is now helping the boy provide food for the stray dogs and hopes
to help them get treated for their skin infections.
The young boy, who clearly has a passion for helping animals,
hopes to one day open his own animal shelter. According to his father there aren’t any in the area.
The young boy has set up a website called Happy Animals Club.
The site keeps his now many fans updated on the dogs
and has a PayPal donation link to help him feed the animals and one day open his dream shelter.
Police Officer Responds to ‘Vicious Dog’ Call, Ends Up With New Best Friend
When Baltimore Police officer Dan Waskiewicz responded to a ‘vicious dog’ call, what he found instead was a new best friend!
When he arrived on scene, officer Waskiewicz found a frightened, obviously neglected pit bull, being chased by children that were yelling and throwing bottles at him. He called the scared dog over, his tail tucked between his legs and panting heavily, and offered him some water. The so-called ‘vicious dog’ quickly sat down beside him and began licking his pants. Realizing the pit bull was no threat, he put the dog into his squad car – that’s when the real kisses began!
Rather than call animal control, who Waskiewicz feared would euthanize the affectionate dog, he drove him to the local animal shelter himself. During the ride, the pit bull sat beside him, smothering him with kisses before curling up in the seat beside him and taking a nap.
A few days later, the officer, an avid animal lover, returned to the shelter to check on the dog he rescued. Because he had still not been claimed, Officer Waskiewicz adopted the dog himself, named him Bo, and gave him a wonderful forever home with his two other dogs!
Officer Waskiewicz’s kindness earned him a certificate of appreciation from Baltimore Humane Society.
Baltimore Humane Society’s Jen Swanson told CBS DC that far too often, officers respond to these types of calls with violent action. “But when Dan Waskiewicz answered the call he first observed the situation calmly before he acted. We believe he deserves high praise and is truly an asset to the animals and citizens of the city he serves.”
THank you, officer Waskiewicz, from the bottom of our hearts to the tips of our tails.

Commend Organization for Saving Thousands of Animals
Saving the lives of thousands of animals started with one little creature: Edgar Allan Pig. Pam Ahern, founder and director of Edgar’s Mission, adopted the little pig and fell in love. Inspired, she started her organization, a nonprofit farm sanctuary in Australia, knowing there were thousands of farm animals like Edgar in need of rescue. Sign this petition to thank Director Ahern and her colleagues for their dedication to protecting the lives of innocent animals.
Edgar’s Mission started over a decade ago and is currently a thriving home to roughly 300 animals. The 60-acre farm sanctuary is dedicated to nursing frightened and sickly farm animals back to health. The sanctuary provides a safe place for these creatures to regain their health and live happy lives. Director Ahern said, “[Society has] become so removed from farm animals that so many of us do not realize the incredible fun loving and emotional creatures these guys and gals are.”
When not nursing these beautiful animals back to health, Director Ahern is planning for the sanctuary’s upcoming move to a larger location. She also spends her weekends traveling Australia to spread awareness about farm animal rights. “We would never dream of eating the family cat or treating our dogs the way we do farm animals,” commented Director Ahern. “When you consider that we really do not need to harm or even eat animals to live happy and healthy lives, something inside you comes alive.”
It has taken tremendous effort and endless patience to make Edgar’s Mission a reality: a sanctuary for rescued farm animals to recover and lead happy lives. Thousands of smart and loving creatures have been saved over the past decade in Australia due to Director Ahern’s vision in creating this safe haven. Sign this petition to thank her and her organization for their passion in saving countless animals just like little Edgar Allan Pig.
