One day a woman saw a man with 10 dogs and decided to stop by and ask about his life story. From that day on, everything changed for him.
Homeless people were once just like the rest of us. Before that, they had a home, a job, and maybe even a family.
Many of them also may have had pets and many of them were definitely pet lovers. Some still keep pets or just become guardian angels for stray dogs, like Steve did.
Steve started living on the street in 2001. In 2015, he took with him all the stray dogs he met on his way and stuffed his cart with them.
In 2015, he began his journey from California to Indiana, where his girlfriend, who was also a pet lover, lived. He took his bike, attached his cart to it, loaded it with his 11 dogs and started pedaling.
Halfway through 2,000 miles, he had a flat tire and had to stop and get it fixed. At this time, 24-year-old Alicia accidentally drove past them and saw a man with dogs.
At this time, she was talking on the phone with her father and told him about them. After thinking for a second, they decided that it would be risky, but she needed to stop and somehow help the man.
She did so, she stopped and walked over to the man. When she asked about her story, Steve revealed that he was homeless, picked up stray dogs from the streets, and was now on his way to Indiana. His story left Alicia speechless. She realized that she should help the man, although he did not ask her about it.
So she left, brought food and supplies for the dogs. After that, she also took to social media to start a fundraiser for the man and his dogs.
The fundraiser was $35,000. Also, a Tennessee woman offered to take Steve and his dogs. The man could not believe how lucky he was and how he found so much love and support.
But the help didn’t stop there. When he arrived in Indiana, he and the girl met a woman who works specifically with the homeless. She helped them from day one.
The dogs were spayed and then they underwent a medical examination. But the people who treated them never thought of separating them from a man.
To make Steve’s life easier and ensure their safety, the Good Samaritans gave him a new trailer. Steve didn’t know how to thank everyone who saved him and his puppies.
