This year the winter has been terrible and it has especially been worse for stray animals. At least we have a shelter to keep us safe from the chilly winter blasts. We have blankets and clothes to keep us warm. But stray animals have nothing to protect themselves during this winter. Maybe that is why a couple of workers at a bus station decided to do something to help stray dogs.
A Kind Act
These dogs did not have anybody to look after them. Either they were abandoned by their parents or owner, or they had no one, to begin with. You can only feel compassion when you come across these cute little dogs who are struggling to get through winter just like us. Only, they need a little bit of help.
That’s why the employees working at the Barreirinha bus terminal in Brazil got out of their way to help these dogs. They used old tires and a blanket to prepare beds for the dogs. Now, they can huddle within the blanket and get into their tires and make it their 5-star home. It doesn’t take much to please these little creatures. Just a kind heart would do wonders for them. The staff is looking after their daily needs as well, giving them food at times so that they remain healthy.
Gratitude And Inspiration
If you look at the dogs now, you will only see a glowing face full of gratitude and love. The staff members have even given these dogs specific names: Max, Pitoco, and Zaino. They sleep in their comfy little tire-beds and watch the winter world of Brazil without feeling the blast of cold wind in their bone anymore. Due to the employees of the bus terminal, they are no longer alone.
A local government official and an animal lover, Fabiane Rosa, was surprised and amazed by this small news. She applauded the work of the staff. She claimed that these small stray dogs have the right to be anywhere they want but they can be adopted or taken care of if you have the right heart. If the companies in Curitiba could be inspired and adopt stray dogs after following the example of the bus station staff, then it would be just wonderful. However, she knows that it is not an ideal situation. Hope remains though. Maybe at times, a kind heart will pop up and puppies and dogs could get a proper home too.
We Can Contribute As Well
There are many abandoned and stray dogs around us – we just need to notice them and make an effort to make their lives better. If they can be adopted, then it would be amazing, but every animal cannot be adopted. So, you could try to do something like the bus station staff and make a major difference in their lives. As you have seen, it does not take much to bring a difference in their lives. You can even take them out for a walk. That would be an amazing bonding moment for the two of you.
