Homeless Man Takes Orphaned Puppies To Shelter And Leaves Touching Note.

puppies and note

When this homeless man discovered a pack of puppies after he noticed the death of their mother, he jumped into action. He rescued the dogs and took them straight to the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society, with a note that “simultaneously broke and uplifted our hearts.”


There had been a storm in the area, and leaving the puppies abandoned was a non-option. So this man gathered them up and took them straight to the shelter.

The Note

The homeless man wrote a powerful note to accompany the puppy rescue, reading:

“Please help! I found these puppies sadly after noticing a local stray dog that I would often feed when I could, dead by the road. She had been hit by a car. I knew from feeding her that she had puppies somewhere and after searching where I would usually see her I found them. I’m sorry for leaving them like this but I myself am homeless and cannot afford to care for them. My heart shatters for them and their mother. I just want them to be given the chance their mother like myself, was never given. Please do not think poorly of me but it felt wrong leaving them alone in the cold waiting on a mother that would not be coming home. Sincerely, nameless man.”

This homeless man saved these lives.
