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.”
The proud father now supplies the dog food for his son, he hopes to treat the strays for their skin condition and eventually re-home them.
Father and son have both been taking precautions to disinfect themselves after interacting with the strays.
His father said his son has ambitions to open up his own animal shelter one day.
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
