Every day for two weeks last year, a puplexed father watched his son strap on his backpack and venture beyond their neighborhood in the Philippines. Finally, he decided to tag along...
His big-hearted son was feeding stray pups he encountered on walks with his own dog!
Meet "Brownie," "The White Puppy," and "Blackie"!
The man's son slowly gained the pups' trust. He could only come within 50 feet at first. But eventually, "The White Puppy" warmed up a bit, even giving highpaws to thank his new friend!
The boy's father was moved to follow in his son's pawprints and started providing dog food for the pups. He also hoped to treat their skin condition and find them a furever home.
He also said that his son had been careful to disinfect himself after interacting with the strays and had dreams of opening his own animal shelter some day.
Thanks to the exposure he and his son got after people around the world saw these moving photos, this giving duo were able to provide care for the puppies at their animal shelter called Happy Animals Club
, which they were able to open with donations from generous folks who loved the story of this 9-year- old boy with a passion for helping animals.
The pups regained their health and looked good as new in just two months at the Happy Animals Club.

and help animals in the Philippines who would otherwise be euthanized have a chance at happiness.
