This is such a simple video, but it will seriously warm your heart! In the video, we see a young man jump out of his vehicle to save a dolphin in need without any hesitation whatsoever. The incredible moment took place at Indian Pass Campground in Port Saint Joe, Florida, which was recently ravaged by Hurricane Michael. When Justin Squire and Renee Burns went to survey the area, they saw the dolphin on the beach and immediately sprung into action.
The inspiring moment shows such compassion for another living being and is a reminder to us all that we are in this together. We share this Earth and all deserve the same compassion and respect. As soon as Justin dragged the dolphin back to the water, the animal swam off with Renee reassuring her friend that he made it out to sea. Apparently, even their Husky was excited about the whole rescue, as he dug into the sand as if to say, “we did it!”
A huge thanks to Justin and Renee for saving a life and inspiring all of us.
It is important to note that you should always consult a professional wildlife rescuer if you come across an animal in need. For a list of a few marine rescue hotlines you can consult, click here.
