Although many homeless people have animals, they are often criticized for owning them. However, when a homeless person puts their pet in danger, the discussion becomes relevant. But most of the time, homeless people go without food or money so that their pets can have a steady diet, keep warm, and have adequate shelter.
Wilma Frice, from Houston, Texas, encountered a homeless man, Patrick, outside Walmart with a sign that read, “Dog in the pound, need help.” Patrick was pleading for assistance for his best friend, Franklin, who had been in the pound since he couldn’t raise $120 to release him.
Frice, who was heartbroken by the sign, decided to help. “He seemed like a nice, gentle soul who just happened to have a hard life. The look in his eye was desperation; he looked like a big kid who just lost his puppy,” Frice told People.com.
After providing the money, Patrick shared the following post on Facebook:
“I’m just so shocked he is a wonderful man and Franklin is a wonderful dog I did this because I would want somebody to do it for me I’ve done homeless animals all my life and dedicated my life to them we all could be in his situation in the blink of an eye and you never know somebody situation or what’s going on in their life so I am not a very judgmental person and I never judge somebody by the cover of their book is until you’ve walked in their shoes you have no idea what somebody’s went through you should always pay it forward if you’re able because like I said in the blink of an eye you could be in the same situation I know how hard I struggle every day just to make sure that the animals have everything and will never end back up on the street again while they’re waiting for their forever home and I have been blessed in my life with unconditional love with all the homeless animals.” >>… RELATED POST: Homeless man seen throwing sweet birthday party for his beloved dog
