In times of need, human beings show their kindness and this nice guy has a huge heart. Thanks to his immense love for animals, hundreds of dogs, cats, sheep and other stray animals had a warm shelter over their heads during Hurricane Delta.
Ricardo Pimentel is the owner of an animal sanctuary called Tierra de Animales in Mexico. So naturally, when the devastating Hurricane Delta was approaching, he thought the animals safety. Since the the storm was too strong, Ricardo knew it is not safe at all for the animals at the sanctuary to remain there. So he came up with the perfect solution. He just brought all the animal into his house, to protect them from the storm.
“We decided to put almost all the dogs inside the house, simply because we don’t fully trust in the shelters that we currently have because they aren’t hurricane-proof,” the man told THE DODO.
However, sheltering over 300 dogs and other animals inside of a house isn’t an easy task at all, but Ricardo handle it in a great manner. He had food reserves and other necessary things and beside that, his guests were all “well-behaved”.
“They were very well-behaved all night during the meteorological phenomenon. They are all spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed. Almost all of them are ready to be adopted,” he told BoredPanda.
Of course, Ricardo’s guests turned his house upside down, but that didn’t bothered him at all. He was so happy, they were all safe. “We had to do a lot of repairs and clean,” Ricardo said. “Of course, there was a horrible smell in the house and they broke a few things, but there’s nothing to regret. I would do it again one million more times if necessary.”
Ricardo Pimentel has always had a great fond of animals and ever since he was a kid, he loved to offer his support to helpless animals. “I have been rescuing animals almost all my life since I was a kid, and I founded Tierra de Animales 9 years ago,” he told BoredPanda. “We not only rescue dogs, but also cats, turtles, iguanas, cows, sheep, goats, pigs, horses or donkeys.”
