She Saw A Homeless Man With A Box… Good Thing She Stopped To Help!

Don’t miss this encouraging story of kindness and cooperation.

‘The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.’ Psalm 145:9

I was walking my dog today when I saw a homeless man sitting against a building leaning over a box of something. As I got closer, I saw that the box was full of tiny baby kittens! I stopped to talk with him for a moment and asked about the kittens. He told me that he had found them helpless, abandoned near a dumpster. “I’ve been feeding them whatever food I could find,” he said, “But I could use some help if you know someone who could give them a better home.” I called my dog’s vet, who is the ultimate animal lover, and told her the story and where to find the homeless man.

This evening I received a voicemail from the vet, “I just wanted to thank you, and let you know that I have temporarily adopted the kittens. I will make sure each of them finds a permanent, happy home. Also, I was so moved by Shawn’s (the homeless man) goodwill, and the fact that he seems levelheaded, that I have offered him a part time job at the animal clinic and a free place to stay until he can get his act together. Not sure how that will go, but I figured it was worth a try.”
