Retired Man Creates A Train To Parade Stray Dogs Around Town

Many of us would like to spend all of our time helping dogs in need, but it can be hard to carve out that kind of time. Between work, family, and everything life throws at us, it’s hard to find the time to dedicate to helping out some dogs who are down on their luck.

Well, one man decided that when he retired, he would dedicate the rest of his life to helping stray dogs feel loved and feel the thrill of adventure!

Eugene Bostick was fortunate enough to be able to retire at the ripe age of 65 after working his entire life on his farm. His farm was located at the end of a dead-end street, and he noticed that people would, unfortunately, abandon their dogs on the farm and race off.

His farm is located in For Worth, Texas, and he quickly scooped up these abandoned dogs, giving them food and taking them to the vet to make sure they were spayed and neutered. Eugene’s farm has all kinds of animals, such as horses and goats, so these dogs have plenty of other animals to play with.

Over the last 20 years, Eugene has shown his kindness by taking on these abandoned pets, but he also saw the chance to offer them a bit of adventure. He got the idea for the barrel train after seeing a man transporting rocks using a barrel, and realized he could do the same for his dogs.

After spotting a neighbor hauling rocks behind his tractor using these barrels, Eugene got to work crafting his own train, and made sure to add some cushy pillows so his furry friends could travel in comfort. The. dogs quickly took to the train, and together, they spend hours traveling around town or through the forests nearby.

People Were Quick To Donate To Eugene’s Cause

After being spotted around town, one neighbor snapped a picture of Eugene that went viral, and a GoFundMe page was started that garnered plenty of donations. Eugene was amazed by everyone’s generosity, and was happy to see others help these abandoned animals feel loved. Eugene will continue to care for his dogs, and we should all follow his lead!
