Gas Pump Attendant Bathes Stray Dog Amid the Scorching Heat

It seems that there’s a dangerous heat wave affecting many parts of the world.

What’s sad about this is that not only does it many forested areas more susceptible to wildfires, but it’s also harming people and animals alike through heat stroke or similar conditions.

While many animals are, sadly, unable to fend for themselves or get sick because they can’t find any help, others are lucky enough to have found kind humans to tend to their needs.

Many humans provided shelter for stray animals. They even give them food, water, and a comfortable place to rest.

But others go beyond the call of duty by taking it a notch higher.

Take for example an employee of a gas station in Santiago del Estero, Argentina.

According to a customer who was about to get gas from the Fernandez Shell Service station, the heat was unbearable in the area when he took the video.

In between serving the customers, the worker made sure to bathe the stray dogs that came to the gas station for shelter.

The customer said that this worker had grabbed a bucket of water to dip the animals in – and it seems that the dogs knew what he was doing to help them because they didn’t appear to resist.

Perhaps, the dogs even like taking a bath in the bucket. After all, a lot of dogs also love swimming in the pool!

Kudos to this kindhearted worker for saving these dogs from the sweltering heat!
