Rules are generally in place to ensure the safety of everyone’s well-being. We live by a set of social norms that keep things in check. We can all agree that speeding is reckless, but if you eat a whole carton of Breyer’s new dairy-free ice cream in one sitting… well, we won’t tell anyone. Another rule that can be bent? Bringing homeless dogs onto a public bus!

bus driver in Buenos Aires, Argentina recently did just that. During a thunderstorm, the driver saw two scared and soaked dogs with nowhere to go in the pouring rain. So the driver broke the bus company’s strict “no animals” policy and scooped up the four-legged pups and brought them on board.

Thanks to a compassionate bus driver, the two pups found shelter from the thunderstorm inside the bus.

Commuters posted photos of the duo online and the photos became a viral hit, with praise for the bus driver from around the world.

Many feared the bus driver would face repercussions from their superior, but thankfully management issued a statement supporting the driver’s decision. The once homeless dogs also have a happy ending. Commuters hope that by sharing the photos of the dogs online, they will be able to find the dogs forever homes. With over 70 million homeless dogs and cats wandering the streets in the U.S. alone, we could all stand to be more like this bus driver to ensure homeless animals have a chance at getting their forever home. Truly, one person can make a difference.

If you’re considering welcoming a four-legged companion into your home, please always adopt and never shop. And if you’d like to get involved with your local animal shelter, check out our guide to volunteering.

Military Man, why don\'t you go troll yourself? You obviously have enough time on your hands to harass some kind hearted folks by attacking their concerns for others. Perhaps you should go back to eating paintchips or sniffing glue.

I see these kinds of posts, and often wonder: If the picture was a homeless, brown human, would there be a similar response? In these unUnited States,,,absolTrumply not!

Who the fuc cares? Most homeless are taken care of in Buenos Aires. They are not a lazy people. Argentinians are sophisticated with a complex society that is very successful. But who cares anyway. This is just a fluff story designed to brighten your fucing day you puke of a democrat.

Some anger management needed here. Your reply is a perfect example of why our country is so severely divided. Let\'s
find things we agree on and leave alone the differences of opinion. Something most learn in kindergarden. "democrat" is not an insult, so if you are trying to insult someone, you should probably expand your potty mouth vocabulary.

Why do sore losers like yourself have to bring politics into a happy story like this one? YOU are miserable and it shows by your comment - go on the political site and vent, this is no place for politics you sorry human being.

Patricia, I would hope that no matter the skin color, no matter the sex, or age - that anyone in emergency help would receive it. God created all the races, and He loves each and every one of us. We ARE sisters and brothers in Christ.
Oh by the way - your, too Military Man, and He\'s watching you and hoping that you, too will develope compassion for both human and animal - all were created by Him for HIS pleasure. Why not ask HIM if your attitude is bring HIM pleasure and making HIM smile.
