Self-Storage Employees Save Homeless Man's Dog

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

Last week employees of Sparky’s Self Storage and Carwash in Hesperia, Calif., saved the life of Big Boy the dog, a homeless man’s sole companion. On Monday, Arthur McDonald, 58, tied his dog to a shady spot near the storage facility to rest. He later found the dog missing. Don Willis, a maintenance worker at Sparky’s, visited the Hesperia Animal Shelter to find the dog.
Big Boy, an 8-year-old German shepherd mix, was indeed at the shelter but was scheduled to be euthanized unless someone could pay $145 for vaccines, rabies shots and neutering. Willis and his coworkers took up a collection to save the dog.
The employees of Sparky’s are familiar with McDonald and his dog, who live in a tent near the facility and frequently walk up and down Main Street collecting cans for recycling. The workers at Sparky’s described him as polite, kind and friendly.
