When Christian McPhilamy was six years old, he was inspired by a commercial for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and decided he wanted to help young people with cancer. He decided that day that he wanted to grow his hair long and donate it to make wigs for children with cancer.

So for 2 and a half years, Christian grew his hair out. He was made fun of at school for it, often mistaken for a girl, but that never deterred him from doing what he thought was right.

“Even out and about or at a park, he would be playing with a bunch of boys and they’d be like, ‘you look like a girl.’ And he would just explain to them. He held his head high and he never once said that he wanted to cut it off ever,” Christian’s mom said.

When Nicole Elliot saw a photo of a senior dog with terminal cancer on her local animal shelter’s Facebook page, she knew she had to do something.

The Georgia woman decided to not only provide a home for Chester the terrier, but also to make sure his final days would be the best ones of his life.

“Before I went and got him, I decided to do a bucket list,” she told ABC News.

Elliot adopted Chester on June 27 and learned that the senior dog had undergone surgery to remove some of his tumors, but more had turned up. The dog’s owners had surrendered him to a high-kill shelter, and Animal Ark Rescue took Chester in before he could be euthanized.

In addition to cancer, Chester is also tested positive for heartworm, and veterinarians aren’t sure how much time he has left.

It all started when Steve Greig’s beloved dog died. Even after months went by, he was still devastated by the loss so he decided to give another dog a good life.

But when he went to his local shelter, he wasn’t looking for a young pup, he wanted to adopt the “least adoptable” senior dog, as they’re often overlooked and have a slim chance of finding a forever home.

His first was a 12-year-old chihuahua named Eeyore, who came with four bad knees and a heart murmur. That was just the beginning, Greig told The Dodo.

Now, he’s a super busy human dad to a host of animals, including a total of 10 elder dogs.

Every garbage day, 2-year-old triplets wait excitedly for their garbage collectors – Andrew Black, Rob Whitmore, and Chad Cover – to show up.

“The crew gets out of the truck and they high-five the babies and give fist bumps and we talk,” their mother, Martha Sugalski, told Buzzfeed. “They spend 10 to 15 minutes with us every Tuesday and Friday.”

Holden, Heaton and Wilder were just two months old when they started to notice the garbage truck in their Florida neighborhood. Their mom would always wave to the men on the truck, the driver would honk the horn in response and the babies would look up. Andrew, the driver, would wave at the babies. Soon enough he would get out for some high fives and fist bumps, along with his two co-workers. Now it’s a twice a week tradition for the three toddlers and three trash collectors to hang out a bit. Even when one of the men had to take time off due to an injury, he came by to say hello. “Every time I see them, they just bring me joy,” he says.
