This past Friday, a kennel technician at Atlanta’s DeKalb County Animal Services spotted a man huddled up asleep on the sidewalk in front of one of the rescue’s two shelters.
Upon speaking with him, the employee learned that the man was searching for his missing dog and had come to the shelter in hopes of finding her.
The man’s little dog, Tata had been picked up two weeks earlier as a stray and taken to DCAS’ new shelter on the other side of the city. Knowing that the man had spent his last bit of money on the bus, the employee decided to help. He paid for the man’s train ticket to the new shelter and his act of kindness has since gone viral.
The lovely reunion between Tata and her dad will warm your heart!
DCAS posted to Facebook regarding the incident:
“We see some amazing reunions here at LifeLine’s DeKalb Animal Services, but this one was extra special.”
The kindhearted animal rescuers waived all of the fees associated with Tata and offered the man assistance through their new outreach program designed to assist homeless individuals with the care of their pets.
