Compassionate Boy Feeds Stray Dogs To The Surprise Of His Father

A curious father was surprised after discovering where his young son was going every day while taking his own dog for a walk in the neighborhood. For two weeks, he noticed that his son left their house in the rural Philippines, carrying a backpack. Curious, the father decided one day to tag along and brought his camera with him

When the two stopped at the side of the road a group of stray, starving dogs, who seemed infected with mange, came towards them. His son told him he had been taking the daily trips to feed the dogs.

Remembering when he first saw the animals, he explained: ‘I’m embarrassed to say I was pretty disgusted. But my son changed my perspective entirely.”

Father and son have both been taking precautions to disinfect themselves after interacting with the strays.

Since the pictures have been posted on the internet, many kind people offered to help feed the animals, so young Ken, 9 years old, and his father have made a website for people who want to help or donate happyanimalsclub

    I have been this young mans biggest supporter and monthly send him donations. If you have not seen the transformation of the dogs under his care you will be amazed and may even shed a tear or two like I did. He is truly a remarkable young man and one day I plan on visiting his shelter!
