There are people who are born with the gift of helping animals, and animals seem to know which people have these qualities, since somehow, they always get help from the right person.
Calvin Tucker, lives in Alabama, United States, and is passionate about animals, but when he performed the first rescue of him in 2017, he never imagined that it would be the beginning of a great work.
Back then he rescued a gray kitten that appeared at his workplace for help.

Although the man was not very fond of cats, he saw something in him that moved him and after helping him decided to adopt him.
Calvin told The Dodo:
The way he looked at me touched my heart. So I went in and bought some cookies and gave them to him. The next day, when I got there, he was waiting for me at 7 in the morning.
The kind-hearted man took the kitten to his house and named him Henry. This act became the beginning of his beautiful work. Since then, Calvin has managed to help more than 123 animals in need and constantly feeds the area’s wild cat colonies.
Not long ago he made one of the last and most poignant rescues of him thanks to his intuition. He was able to rescue a bald dog abandoned on the road in September of last year.
Calvin’s sixth sense for helping animals, he was unexpectedly activated by feeling that someone needed help.
One night, while he was on his way home, something inside him made him change his route, and thanks to that he was able to rescue the poor little dog.
It was Friday night and I was on my way home and, for some reason, something spoke to me and told me to get off the highway about six exits before my house. When I pulled off the highway and onto the main road, I saw Wrinkles immediately. He was in the middle of the road, he was scared, cars passed by and honked at him.
The man, without thinking twice, stopped his car on the side of the road and tried to attract the attention of the frightened dog with a can of food. She spent about 20 minutes with him, and could see that most of his body had lost its fur and all that was visible were wrinkles.
The poor animal was in very bad condition, his physical condition was down and it was evident that he urgently needed medical attention. So Calvin took the dog to a foster home where he was given a bath, and the next day he took him to the vet.
There they performed different medical tests to be able to treat his health problems and establish the appropriate treatment. The dog suffered from severe mange, had a fever and parasites, but despite all his problems, he was still very affectionate.
He lay down on the table and we looked into each other’s eyes, all I saw was that he was happy to be off the streets. You could see the gratitude in his eyes for the way he looked at me, he was in total peace.
The little dog was named Wrinkles, and he had to stay at the veterinary hospital all weekend for medical treatment.
After that, he was taken to a foster home where he would begin his long journey towards recovering from all his injuries.
His keeper said he was the sweetest dog they ever cared for. He got along very well from the first day with the other animals, he was running, playing with them and having fun.
It took six months for Wrinkles’ fur to grow back, and little by little, his wrinkles were replaced by shiny black fur.
Calvin contacted his friends from Two By Two Animal Rescue in Helena, Alabama, in order to find Wrinkles a home.
The man convinced his friends to do this, and they did it with the greatest of tastes, getting good results in a short time.
They paid a home visit and people went out and met him, and when they met him it was love at first sight, both ways.
Luckily, Wrinkles now has a forever loving home, and it’s all because Calvin decided to take a different path that night.
