Earlier this month, Hurricane Delta threatened Mexico’s coastline dangerously. Faced with this hostile situation, a man decided to transform his house into a refuge, and thus saved nearly 300 stray animals.
Hurricane Delta recently wreaked havoc in Mexico. It formed on October 5, 2020 and dissipated on October 12, 2020. At one point, it reached a wind speed of 230 km / h, devastating everything in its path. In the face of this natural disaster, a large number of dogs and other animals were taken to shelter by a man inside his home in Mexico, as Hurricane Delta raged in the region. Ricardo Pimentel welcomed around 300 dogs, along with rabbits, chicks and dozens of cats, to his Yucatan Peninsula residence earlier this month to protect them.
After learning of the imminent arrival of the hurricane, he decided to take these animals home because there was no more room in the shelter where he worked. With so many animals in the house, the cleanliness was not there. But Pimentel explained that it was well worth it since all the animals survived. “It doesn’t matter if the house is dirty, it can be cleaned,” he said. “The things they broke can be fixed or redeemed, but the beautiful thing is to see them happy, healthy and safe, free from injuries and with the opportunity to be adopted. “
Very quickly, his gesture made the buzz on social networks, and he took the opportunity to ask Internet users to take care of his friends the animals. He also encouraged people to be altruism and shelter stray animals until the hurricane passes.
