A TikTok has gone viral of three abandoned dogs being rescued in Houston off the side of a freeway. When @erwin100315 approached the three pups, they all jogged up to him and looked excited to see someone.


Well this adorable trio is crashing with us 🥰 After a few nights under the highway, they’re finally safe! #dumpeddogs #houston #fosterdogs #rescue

The text that was overlaid on the TikTok video said, “3 new dogs in a common dump area off the highway.”

“A lot of people can’t squeeze in 3 dogs, so pleas were put out,” the video reads.

Thankfully, @erwin100315 was able to help out the pups and had a little extra room to take them back to his house.

A final clip with the text reading, “They were saved just in time. Now their new lives begin.” the clip showed the pups running around in the grass.

The video was captioned, “Well this adorable trio is crashing with us [floating hearts, smiley face emoji]. After a few nights under the highway, they’re finally safe! #dumpeddogs #houston #fosterdogs #rescue.”

The one-minute video has already racked up over 422K views.

“It kills me that they’re just waiting where they were left!! Trying to be good 🥺,” one user commented.

“Thank you for what you do. I’m in Houston it’s sad. I donated to you to help. Bless y’all,” another said.

Another user commented, “If you’re in the Houston area and have ever thought about fostering a dog— do it!! There are so many ways to help and no shortage of dogs to help 🥰”

While we cannot change the horrific treatment that many animals have already endured in the past, we can give animals a voice and hold perpetrators accountable for crimes in the present and the future. Many animal abusers are not held accountable by the law, which feeds into this horrific cycle of abuse.

You can sign this petition to demand all states make all animal abuse a felony.
