Homeless Man Stands Outside Walmart Pleading For Help For His Dog, Then Woman Comes To His Rescue

A homeless man named Patrick might not have had a roof over his head, but he had plenty of love to give to his pooch named Franklin. He made sure his dog ate before he did, even if that meant that Patrick went hungry for days until compassionate people could help him out.

One day, Patrick and Franklin found themselves in a frightening situation. But it was the kindness of a stranger named Wilma Price that brought Patrick to tears and saved Franklin’s life.


Wilma was walking out of the Walmart in Huntsville, Texas, when she spied Patrick holding a cardboard sign. He wasn’t asking for food or a job, but rather made quite an unusual request that caught Wilma off guard.

His sign read,
“Dog in pound. Need help.”

Being a dog lover, Wilma was drawn in by Patrick’s plea. He was begging for money so that he could spring his dog from the animal shelter.

She took notice of how desperate Patrick looked, but with only $8 to her name, she decided to head back to her car. Yet halfway there Wilma stopped – haunted by his words.
