Random Act Of Kindness Reunites Lost Dog With Owner

Posted:
VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

A random act of kindness helped a Visalia man reunite with his lost dog.   

Robert Fuentes lost his German Shepherd on Sunday, but the next day located his dog at the Valley Oak Animal Shelter in Visalia.

He couldn't get the dog out because the bill totaled $162. 

"I don't have that kind of extra money to spend," Fuentes said. "I would have found a way to get it cause I've had that dog her entire life. She's everything to me."

Navy Senior Chief Norm McCraine was at the SPCA to turn in two puppies who were dumped at his Visalia home.  

"It kind of touched a nerve; I kind of welled up," said McCraine who has four dogs of his own. "I had to help him out."

The $162 shelter bill for Lucy breaks down this way: $30 because she was not spayed; A $35 state fine for not having the dog spayed; $75 because there was no dog license; And fees for vaccinations and boarding.

McCraine did not think twice about helping Fuentes. 

"I figure I got a couple of extra dollars. It wasn't going to do me much good. I gave somebody that needed it more than I did," McCraine said.

McCraine asked only one thing of Fuentes: To do as he did and "pay it forward" if he gets the chance.

"The man's a hero," Fuentes said.

McCraine doesn't consider himself a hero, just a caring man who couldn't pass up a random act of kindness.
