Brazilian priest houses stray dogs in his church and tries to find homes for them


There is an epidemic of stray dogs in Gravatá, Brazil. But one man, Padre João Paulo Araujo Gomes, the priest at the local church, Paróquia de Sant'Ana Gravatá, has made it part of his mission to care for those animals and provide them with the love and comfort they don't receive from their lives on the streets.

You absolutely love to see it. At this church, stray dogs wander in, nap in the pews, and take their rightful place on the altar next to Padre João Paulo as he performs the service. He invites these dogs in not only to provide them temporary relief but also to help them find homes and get adopted.
