It's no secret that Americans are unabashed animal lovers. The U.S. has millions of dedicated pet owners, as well as countless volunteers that raise money for shelters. Even in a tough economy, there are decent citizens who spontaneously rescue needy critters.
Like this fella - Gary DeNicola. He gallantly helped out a helpless doggie, and then received a shock.
But Gary continues doing the good deed, although it's became a more daunting endeavor than he envisioned. Awww. His neighbors are pretty neighborly, too.
