It is always heartwarming to hear about people who go the extra mile to help animals in need. Professional cyclist Thyago Costa Silva from Brazil is one such person who did more than his fair share when he discovered five abandoned puppies, who were left for dead in a hole. Silva, who was out on a training session with friends, couldn’t believe what he saw and knew that he had to help.
After providing the puppies with food and water, the cyclists placed them inside their shirts and rode 12 miles to get them help. Silva went even further by taking the puppies to his home, where he cared for them himself.
Despite the cruelty that the puppies had faced, Silva hoped that they would find loving homes soon. Fortunately, his efforts paid off, and all five puppies found their forever homes. Silva was delighted and stated that he did what he did out of love, not for media attention or praise.
It’s heartbreaking to think that anyone would abandon innocent animals in such a cruel way, but it’s heartening to know that there are people like Silva and his friends who are willing to go above-and-beyond to help. Thanks to their efforts, the puppies now have a chance to live happy, healthy lives with loving families.
