A few months ago a little boy in the Philippines began taking walks every day. His father followed him out of curiosity and discovered that his son was looking after very sick puppies that were living on the streets. After that, Ken and his dad Kay began looking out for them together.

Since that day, something truly remarkable has blossomed.

It's hard to believe this all started with a boy who was kind hearted and generous enough to begin watching over three sick puppies on the streets.

Heroes don't have capes. They have big hearts.
