300 dogs to shelter by Mexico Man – A Perfect Example of Humanity
Hat’s off to the effort put by the great man, very happy to see that people are there who care about animals.
The dangerous Hurricane Delta closed in on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula – and a beautiful thing happened, The Man with a golden heart “Ricardo Pimentel” opened his home for about 300 dogs.
His son & daughters also welcomed animals. Dozens of cats were harbored by his son; his daughter’s room served as a refuge for chicks, bunnies and even a hedgehog.
Off course the house smelled terrible but in spite of that this man saved all of them from the dangerous storm.
His beautiful lines melted our heart “It doesn’t matter if the house is dirty, it can be cleaned”. The things they broke can be fixed or bought again. He only wanted to the see the animals happy, healthy and safe and off course with the possibility of being adopted.
All started on Oct. 6. A social media post was posted by Pimentel. He told his friends that he had cut branches and boarded up windows at the Land of Animal shelter he founded nearly a decade ago about 20 miles southwest of Cancun, where he lives with his family.
He already warned about the hurricane’s devastating power, because of this hurricane the stores might remain shut, which could lead to food shortages, hence it asked for donations for the beautiful and lovely animals.
He stated that – If I lived with just 10 or 20 dogs, I wouldn’t worry much, but here we have hundreds of animals and we can’t afford the luxury of not having enough food.
In order to keep the animal safe from storm, he moved all of them inside his house. It took hours to lead the hundreds of dogs indoors by leash.
The hurricane downed trees, knocked out power and prompted the evacuation of thousands of residents and tourists along the Yucatan Peninsula’s resort-studded coast, and he was unaware the post had gone viral as he was so with the animals.
Afterward, he was surprised by the generosity of people from around the world who donated thousands of dollars. And a generous effort also came in, local residents stepped forward to help clean up the damage at the shelter.
Pimentel has always preferred the company of animals. He exited school and went through years fixing bikes and embracing lost canines before satisfying his youth dream by beginning the sanctuary in 2011. Today, somewhere in the range of 500 creatures live on almost 10 sections of land (4 hectares) of land.
Some dogs from the land of animals were rescued from dog fighting rings, and some were rescued, who were left unable to stand after being brutally beaten. Since past years many dogs have been adopted by families in Mexico, Canada and the U.S.
A big thanks!!!! to all the people around the globe from team Pawsibilties for helping this great man. We are glad there are people who know the value of animal kind, but yet its a long journey to spread awareness among thousands and millions of people all across the world and yet to be continued…
