What This Man Started Doing After He Found One Stray Dog Is Changing So Many Lives

His work is never done, but he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Leaving his home 14 years ago and heading to Thailand to work in a restaurant, Michael J. Baines had no idea that a stray dog would change his life forever. When a malnourished dog wandered to his restaurant after giving birth to puppies, she was thin and on the edge of death. Fortunately for her, Baines didn’t hesitate to lend a helping hand.

While this story alone is inspiring, the fact that a single act of kindness went on to change the lives of countless strays is even better.


Meet Michael, The man that rescues dogs. 14 years ago, Michael J. Baines left his home to go to Thailand and work in a restaurant. While at work one day, a street dog came by. She’d just had puppies, and was badly infected and very thin. Michael’s heart broke for her, and so he began to feed her every day.“That’s how it all started… I just can’t stand seeing dogs in distress,” Michael tells Newsner.
