11-Year-Old Brazilian Boy Bathes Stray Dogs On Saturdays To Increase Their Chance At Being Adopted

There are so many abandoned animals that are looking for a home—luckily, we are able to change that. Even the smallest gestures like offering food to a stray dog make a big difference, and of course, taking a new furry family member into your home will forever change the life of the puppy as well as your own.

Thiago, an 11-year-old Brazilian boy, knows this well and is doing his part very seriously. The boy has created a project called “Sou de rua mas to limpinho” (I’m homeless but I’m clean), where he goes out into the streets of his town Antônio Prado looking for stray dogs to bathe them and prepare them for adoption.

Thiago clearly has a huge love for animals and sets a great example for many people. The boy also has a hard time accepting the fact that many animals are born just to be raised to feed people and doesn’t eat any meat products for that reason.

Thiago’s father Eduardo told Bored Panda: “The project idea was born at the end of 2020. It’s his idea too, where he intended to bathe the stray dogs, decorate them, perfume them and then return them to the street. So that people would see them more pleasantly and thus have more chances of adoption. He dedicates Saturdays to bathing the dogs that were rescued and are available for adoption, I take the photos because a photo of quality increases the chances of adoption of dogs. To date, his project has given 47 baths to stray animals.”

My mother-in-law has an animal shelter at home. She depends so much of donations, and she even put a lot of her money on it. So I've met A LOT of "Instagram Animal Heroes" that takes the photos and leave them somewhere else... I hope this guy it's not the case, porque Brasil é nível hard

I get paid over 90$ per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing.. :) AND GOOD LUCK.:) ===))> 𝐖­𝐰­𝐰.𝐅­𝐮­𝐥­𝐰­𝐨­𝐫­𝐤.𝐂­𝐨­𝐦

What an absolute star this young lad is - restores my faith in human nature when I see something like this and gives me hope that there are still kind souls out there. Well done!
