When this man decided that he wanted to volunteer for his local animal shelter, he had no idea how much he would touch the life of one black lab.
You see, this particular pup had severe cataracts in his eyes and glaucoma. He was left for dead on the side of the road until the animal shelter rescued him. While they wanted to do everything they could for him, they quickly realized that his medical expenses for the necessary surgeries would be incredibly high. A decision needed to be made: put him down or find someone to help the lab out.
When this Redditor saw the blind black lab, he reminded him of the dog he grew up with. He took the rescue under his wing, paid for the expensive surgery that would remove both of his eyes, and adopted him.
This blind black lab now has a new lease on life thanks to the kindness and generosity of one animal shelter volunteer. He is taken care of and is healthier than ever.
But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have weird tendencies…here he is watching TV with his owner.
When he heard a knock at the door, he went to answer it…
Just enjoying the scenery of his new home.
This pooch likes to party!
Feeling that cool breeze in a way he never has before.
I hope these two go on to have an awesome life together. That man is a hero for adopting and saving this dog’s life. In his own words, “I hope this encourages everyone […] to consider adopting, volunteering, or even just a simple donation to a local shelter.” It can really make a difference!
