Even though you might live a normal life and don’t have that many problems, this is not the case for everyone. A young boy from the Philippines realized that the world wasn’t fair to everyone when he was just 11 years old and decided to be the change he wants to see in the world. He is called Ken and he created his own animal shelter!
20. Young Boy
While most of us were out playing in the streets at the age of 11 years old, Ken was thinking about ways of making the world a better place. He saw that hundreds of animals were in need of help and he decided to be their savior.
19. The Happy Animals Club
Despite being only 8 years old, Ken started a shelter for stray dogs and cats. This picture shows him feeding some poor dogs and you can clearly see that he loves doing this. The shelter is called “The Happy Animals Club” and there’s something truly special about it. Check out the next picture to see what.
18. No-Kill Rule
Ken wants to make the world a better place for animals and to help them in their time of need. Therefore, his shelter has a no-kill rule! Scroll down to see one of the first puppies that Ken saved.
17. Saving Hyena
This stray is called Hyena and she was not looking good when Ken found her. Luckily for Hyena, Ken didn’t give up on her and she looks amazing now! See it for yourself in the next photo!
16. Looking Good
Can you believe that this is Hyena? She looks so much better, like a healthy dog! Ken is working wonders. Although, his love doesn’t stop with stray dogs. Click next to see what I am talking about.
15. Stray Cats
Ken loves cats as much as he does dogs. As you can see from this picture, Ken doesn’t shy away from holding a flea-ridden cat tight in his arms. This is quite extraordinary, especially when considering how young Ken is. You will be amazed to see how good this cat looks after spending some time around Ken.
14. Healthy Cat
The cat looks so much better now. It seems like Ken’s Happy Animals Group does work wonders. You better get ready to be shocked because I am going to show you one of the most heartwarming things that Ken ever did.
13. Abandoned Puppies
One of the worst cases that Ken and his group ever stumbled upon was when he found a group of abandoned puppies. This broke Ken’s heart and he knew that he needed to give them a chance to survive. Let’s move on to the next picture and see how one of the dogs looks after spending a couple of months in Ken’s special animal shelter.
12. Feeling Better
This is one of the dogs that made a full recovery in Ken’s shelter. The cute dog is called Bohr, after the famous Niels Bohr. Ken loves to name his dogs after famous scientists and the next photo is a great example of that.
11. Meet Einstein
Ken named this dog Einstein and to make things even better, the dog is trying to recreate Einstein’s famous picture where he holds his tongue out. Scroll down to see another dog that’s been named after one of the world’s most famous scientists.
This little guy is called Newton and Ken says that he is one of the calmest dogs he ever met. Newton might be a little bit camera shy, but no one can deny that he is a cute dog! Although, caring for so many strays can be expensive. How is Ken getting money for their food and housing?
9. Kind People
Considering that Ken is only 11 years old, we think it’s safe to assume that he doesn’t make any money. Ken says that his shelter is being sustained by donations from kind people. At first, he didn’t have any help from strangers but as soon as he started posting pictures of the dogs he saved, donations started coming in.
8. Expensive Food
Feeding all these strays is expensive and Ken says that all of this wouldn’t be possible without donations. The food is what costs the most because Ken houses tens of dogs and not all of them are lucky enough to be adopted. However, Ken doesn’t pay that much attention to money…
7. Happy to Help
Money doesn’t matter that much for Ken because he is happy to help others in need. Just take a look at the next pictures and you will see how happy Ken is after helping stray dogs make a full recovery and get in better health.
6. Big Smile
This cute dog is called Blackie and as we can all see, both Blackie and Ken have big smiles on their faces. The following picture is just too cute to skip.
5. White Puppy
I can’t even tell who is cuter Ken or the little white puppy? What do you think? If you cant’ decide, then you need to see them again in the next picture.
4. Goofing Around
One of the things that Ken loves the most about working at an animal shelter is getting to play around all day long. The puppies love his playful attitude as well. Although, this is not the thing that matters the most to Ken.
3. Saving Strays
According to Ken, the only thing that really matters is to give a helping hand to those in need. Ken found his calling in saving puppies and it’s amazing to see what he is doing at such a young age.
2. Role Model
Even though Ken is just 11 years old, he is making a bigger difference in the world than the most of us. Let’s hope that more people follow in his footsteps, especially in countries where stray dogs are a real issue.
1. Young and Brave
Despite being a little kid, Ken is setting an example for how everyone should act. This is a rare thing to see from an 11 years old kid, but it shows why Ken is so special. Let’s just hope he keeps saving more puppies as he grows up.
