Winter is already starting to hit the southern hemisphere hard and for people AND animals without a warm place to stay, their lives are being threatened. Too many people and animals lose their lives just because they can’t stay warm. But a bus station in Brazil is doing something about it!
The employees at Barreirinha bus terminal in the city of Curitiba didn’t care if the dogs were abandoned or if they didn’t have homes to begin with. What they did care about was keeping them safe and warm. So, they opened their doors, and hearts, to three homeless pups.
The employees named the dogs Max, Pitoco and Zoinho, and got them brand new beds and cozy blankets!
A local politician named Fabiane Rosa saw the pups and the selfless act by the bus station. She praised the employees online and posted the heartwarming photos. It has since gone viral!
Rosa wrote on Facebook (translated from Portuguese), “Congratulations to the terminal staff, everyone understands that these angels are there and have a right to be. So many companies in Curitiba could follow this example, adopting a pet. Of course it is not the ideal, but at least there are those who are looking after them.”
We have to agree with Rosa. Opening their doors, and their hearts, to animals in need is both heartwarming and inspiring. It doesn’t take much to do the right thing. You just have to be willing to do it!
