27 Abandoned Animals Rescued By Pokemon Go Players

On Tuesday Sara Perez and Matthew Teague were on a mission to hunt Pokemon in South Houston. While on duty, the duo spotted an abandoned cage in a completely empty park. 20 hamsters and 7 mice were suffering inside from heat exhaustion and had no water to refresh themselves with.

Luckily for them, Sara and Matthew acted fast. The two Pokemon trainers took the cage back to Sara’s house, then provided water, fresh food and bedding to the suffering animals. Thanks to the swift decisions, all 27 have survived.

Later, Sara handed the animals over to the Houston SPCA which, after not receiving any news from former owners, named them after Pokemon and put them up for adoption. Hopefully, difficult times for Pikachu and his friends will soon be over after new Pokemon trainers take them home.

All animals survived and arrived at the Houston SPCA and were given Pokemon names before being put up for adoption

Now they are waiting for personal Pokemon trainers to take them home!

When people lose that amount of empathy, that they cannot even see how much suffering they are causing to their own pets - (or possibly pets of their children) -- they are lost.

FINALLY! - A happy, not a tragic ending to a Pokémon story.

It's clear someone bought a pair of hamsters, they obviously bred and then they didn't know what to do with so many hamsters. People forget pets aren't toys... you can't dispose them like trash... If you're not mature enough to keep pets, just don't buy them... it's so easy

When I was little me and my brothers finally got to have pets, the pet-store assured us that both hamsters were of the same gender. Few weeks later we discovered tiny little baby hamsters in the cage. My parents saw it as an excellent lesson about life and everything. We got bigger cages and separated the males from the females and we had to take of each and everyone of them.
