People can be total assholes, but that's no reason to lose hope in humans. These beautiful photos will have your faith in humanity restored and remind you that perhaps we aren't all that bad, after all. An act of kindness that you ask people to pay forward instead of back can travel a long, long way!

So, instead of losing faith in humanity and doing nothing about it, why not start with yourself by helping those around you. Not necessarily by making some grand gesture, but starting small and building hope step by step. The act of helping others comes with a great wave of gratitude, so why not try it?

These wonderful examples of human kindness are sure to set you on the right path - from helping homeless people and rescuing animals in distress, to just cheering everyone up with little heart-warming messages. Every good deed counts!

We love to share these inspirational pictures with you and who knows, maybe someday you'll be one of these heroic people.

Awww, the poor pup. I can empathise, because of my CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome). It's awful when your limbs hurt that much & it's so hard to relax. Good thing this pup had such a wonderful owner, who was willing to do anything to ease his suffering. It breaks my heart that he died, but I'm glad the owner took photos; so he'll always have those beautiful moments as a memory he can cherish... 💕✨🐕✨💕

This gentleman's name is John and his dogs name was Schoep. John took Schoep to the water to float because it was the only was Schoep could get pain free sleep. Schoep passed away a few years ago. I don't know is he still does, but John use to have a Facebook page. He's an interesting person,along with having a heart of gold.

He did the humane thing. He got treatment for his dog AND took him to relax in the water every night. Maybe you think people with conditions that cause chronic pain should be "put down" too??
