The man first of all began to worry about the fate of the dog, and then about himself.
Pets are considered full members of every family, so it is not surprising that in a difficult situation, people first of all take care of their pets, and only then of themselves. After all, if a person can take care of himself, then who will support a dog or a cat if not their owner? So in the case of a man named Robert and his dog Mikey, the man first began to worry about the fate of the dog, and then about himself. When Robert adopted Mikey from a shelter in Sacramento, the man had everything a man needed: a family, a home, a job, and a master’s degree, so neither the animal nor Robert had any problems. However, something unexpected happened.
Before Robert’s family could figure out what was going on, they were evicted from their home.
The entrance to the homeless shelters with animals is closed, so Mikey and Robert had to live in a car.
When the situation worsened, Robert returned to the animal shelter and asked to find a new family for Mikey the dog.
So Robert hoped to get through the difficulties and then get Mikey back.
Shelter manager Gina Knepp decided to help both the owner and the dog.
Gina not only paid for a three-night hotel reservation for Robert, which allows guests to live with their pets, but also turned to people for help.
A video was recorded asking to find temporary housing for Mikey with the support of the shelter.
Robert asks kind people to take Mikey to him so he and his family can find a place to live and then pick up the dog.
The video not only received more than half a million views, but also brought help to the family, which they did not even ask for.
Not only did Robert and his family donate over $5,000, but the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, allowed them to live in the house she rents out. The money raised for the family will be used to pay rent for the house, buy food for the family and the dog, and other needs. So now there is no need to look for a new family for Mikey!
