A photographer captures the touching sight of a homeless man organizing a birthday celebration for dogs, sparking a series of events that transform lives.

People were completely touched by the love he had for his dogs.

When some people think of “home,” they don’t think of a place.

They think of their family as their home.

Just because Choco and his two dogs didn’t live in a house, they were still very much at home while sitting on the steps of a Bucaramanga, Colombia park.

Well here’s something you don’t see every day! A man named Choco sat on some stairs at a local park with two dogs wearing party hats

One sunny evening, a man walking through a park in Bucaramanga, Colombia, saw a homeless man throwing what seemed to be a birthday party for his pet dogs. The man named Choco was sitting on stairs alongside his companions Shaggy and Nena, almost as if basking in the late sunshine, however, the party hats sitting atop of the pup’s heads told a different story.

They were celebrating the birthday of Shaggy the pup. Cake and candles were revealed and he started singing ‘Happy Birthday’

The bystander decided to capture the event on camera and we’re very glad he did as what happened next is truly heartwarming. Choco gave each of the sleepy pups some pets before unveiling a small cake and candles. He then started singing to his two companions a version of ‘Happy Birthday’. It appeared that it was Shaggy’s birthday and Choco was throwing him a little party.

After ending the video, the person filming approached Choco to ask about their lives and to offer help. It was revealed that Choco had spent the last several years living on the streets after escaping an abusive home. Despite the hardship, he’d made sure that Shaggy and Nena were always taken care of to the best of his ability.
