In the United States, there are over 13,600 animal shelters. In that, about 3.9 million dogs are rescued and taken in each year. And out of that total, nearly 2.7 million dogs have to be put down either because of illnesses or they are completely full and usually over capacity.

However, when he saw a skeletal Chihuaha named Billy, withering away in a cage and missing nearly half of his lower jaw, “at that moment [he] felt responsible for him.”
Their story is beautiful, watch below.
