MANILA, Philippines — A disabled stray dog in Bukidnon province has recently been given another chance at running and playing, after a policeman of Kalilangan town Police Station improvised a wheelchair for the injured animal.

The municipal police said their acting chief Patrick Castro initiated the “random act of kindness” for the dog named Tiger who lost the mobility of her back legs after supposedly being hit by a moving vehicle.

The police officer only needed a few PVC water pipes, rubber bands and wheels from a damaged stroller to develop the wheelchair for Tiger.

The station further stated that “the improvised wheelchair helps the dog not only physically but also psychologically, because with the wheelchair, “Tiger is no longer incapacitated.”
