Three street dogs — Max, Pitoco, and Zoinho — are sleeping better at night thanks to the kindness of employees at a bus station in Brazil.

The story comes to us from Curitiba, a city of about 1.8 million people located roughly 250 miles southwest of São Paulo.
Workers at a transit center there turned an otherwise empty space into a makeshift kennel complete with food, water, and old tires repurposed as beds.
Looks cozy, right?
While its unknown where exactly the doggos came from, it seems they have found a community to call home.
In a now-viral photoset shared on Facebook, a local politician, Fabiane Rose, had words of praise for the humans behind this touching gesture and encouraged others to follow their lead.
"I never tire of praising the neusa dos Santos and other volunteers who provide these angels, a warm bed in the cold, food every day, fresh water, security, a curl.
Happy birthday to officials of that terminal, everyone understands that these angels are there and you have the right to be.
So many companies in curitiba could follow this example, adopt a pet. Of course it's not ideal, but at least there's who look out for them and for them."
The alderwoman also urged her constituents to report any instances of animal abuse to the police.
"The abandonment is cruel, coward, is a crime.
But we can together change this sad reality.
Report it!!! Don't be afraid!!!You may be the only hope of those angels who suffer silent.
These dogs in the community, has a life much more worthy, that some who are victims of abuse and neglect, hiding behind the walls.
And that people understand, this world is not privilege of humans, God created the animals to teach us to love without conditions."
The staff here at Cuteness [dot] com couldn't agree more, Fabiane.
