Self-Storage Employees Save Homeless Man's Dog

Posted in News

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.
