By the time this family was able to adopt Wilson, he had already been neglected and severely malnourished, and he had already been returned to the shelter once. Wilson, an adorable pitbull, was sad, alone, and felt like no one wanted to love him. Thankfully, @wilsonhauscandles rescued and adopted Wilson. He had spent his short 8 months living in and out of shelters, but he was finally getting a loving home.

“It was clear that in some point of his life, someone didn’t find him worthy enough to love,” @wilsonhauscandles said on TikTok.

@wilsonhauscandles knew that she wanted to do more and help other animals like Wilson, who have had rough lives. She decided to start a tiny candle company out of her home called WilsonHaus Candles.

We have about 300 candles left to sell to reach out goal of raising 5,000 dollars for animal rescue. Purchasing, liking, commenting and sharing all make a difference. It all matters, and so do they 🐶🐾❤️ #animalrescue #dog #rescuedogs #animalsanctuary

WilsonHaus Candles makes hand-poured candles in which 30 percent of the profits go right back to helping animal rescues. She was so dedicated she quit her nursing job and wanted to work at this full-time. Right now, they are trying to raise $5,000 for animal rescues.

Thanks to Wilson and his rescue, so many other animals will be able to get help and be rescued and placed into loving homes just like him! Wilson and every other dog are worth it and worthy of being loved!
