Steve, a man from California, was devastated after becoming homeless in 2001. But in his darkest days, the heartbroken man found comfort in the company of stray dogs who were as sad, lonely, and homeless as he was. Gradually Steve began to spend a large portion of his meager income feeding and caring for all the homeless dogs around him.
About 15 years later, Steve decided to go to Indiana to visit a friend. At the time he was caring for 11 homeless dogs. So he made a makeshift vehicle out of a bicycle and a shopping cart to take his furry family with him. Little did he know that luck would finally smile on him on this special journey!
When a woman named Alicia saw Steve pedaling his dog cart on the road, she was confused. She ignored him at first, but she had to intervene when she realized that the man was desperately exhausted. Alicia was even more surprised when she heard Steve’s adorable story and immediately set out to find help for him and his 11 dogs! Alicia contacted many local rescuers and informed them of Steve’s situation. Everyone was touched by his sincere love for his dogs. They convinced the man to stop camping outside and temporarily arranged for him to stay at a pet-friendly motel. Later, they shared his story on social media and started a fundraiser to help him on his journey.
The fundraiser received an overwhelming response with hundreds of people coming together to help Steve take care of his dogs. Thanks to generous donations, rescuers were able to provide Steve’s dogs with the medical care they needed in just a few days.
Poor Steve had a hard time believing that all the kindness they showed him was real. He was completely shocked when rescuers bought his own trailer to make sure he and his dogs were never homeless again! After living a life full of deprivation for decades, Steve finally found his fairytale happy ending with his dogs!
