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!
A 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.
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.
