The amount of stray and homeless dogs in the world is sad and staggering. If it were up to us, every single dog would be in loving, safe, and forever homes. Sadly, that is just not the case. Thankfully, there are good people out there that really do try to help.
Animal activist groups, rescue groups, and volunteers are some of the wonderful and amazing people that help get stray dogs and other animals off the street. And, of course, regular day-to-day citizens try to help as well.
A young 9-year-old boy from Guaymallén, Argentina found a stray dog wandering the streets and noticed it was injured. The boy was so compassionate and so selfless that he wanted to do anything he could to help the poor thing.
Mauco Abeiro found the dog in his neighborhood, he took him in and decided to name him Rocko. The homeless pup seemed to suffer from some sort of injury on it’s leg as well. Mauco brought him to his home.
After a bath and a meal, Mauco gave Rocko lots of love and kisses. This was amazing, however, the loving stray was in need of medical attention. Of course, Mauco didn’t have the means to help.
