His 11 dogs and a guy started a journey across America with nothing besides a a handcart, a bike as well as a feeling of family. More than 2,000 miles after, the family is still going strong and they eventually have a house to call

In 2001, Steve joined creatures and the a number of other people all over the world who are without a house. Since that time, he’s picked up any stray dog he’s come across and welcomed them into his family that was roaming.

Even without many financial resources, Steve has an amazing capability to care for all these dogs who’d otherwise be left along with a lot of love.

Over the past 14 years, Steve has cared for over 50 displaced dogs.

One day, just after saving an abandoned dog who was pregnant, he found that she had six pups. He was already caring for five other dogs he’d 11 on his hands, he understood he needed to locate a house for himself and the dogs.

If Steve could make his way there, Steve contacted a buddy, living in Indianapolis, Indiana, who consented to help out Steve and his furry family. The trouble was that Steve was broke and living in California over 2,000 miles away!

At last, all 11 dogs and Steve arrived in Indiana. Because of the generosity of 197 individuals as well as the GoFundMe report, the Edringtons were able to raise over $6,836.

Also, his dogs and Steve will be without a house, because a trailer was given by one generous man to the family.

On a tiny scale, Steves story could be seen as one of rags to wealth, but more to the point, it’s a feeling of family: love, care as well as the narrative of a guy who had found to give. His generosity reminds us that although there are a few matters we cant command, we can constantly look inward to locate a bountiful supply of compassion and kindness.

The Edringtons are expecting that enough resources will soon be raised to give a little parcel of land for Steves new preview. By giving to the GoFundMe account here you can support Steve and his dogs.
