MrBeast is not only the biggest YouTuber in the world, with over 222 million subscribers – he’s also become synonymous with charitable causes and heartwarming videos through his Beast Philanthropy organization. His latest video is no exception and has tails wagging across the globe: rescuing 100 dogs from shelters and finding them forever homes. Let’s dive into this pawsome story!
Finding Rescue Dogs Their Forever Homes
MrBeast and his crew set up a sprawling sanctuary for the adoption event, and assembled a dream team of trainers, walkers, and, importantly, dedicated scratch givers. These compassionate individuals worked tirelessly over several days to ensure each dog received care, exercise, and love during the adoption.
As prospective pet parents arrived, they were greeted by happy faces and wagging tails, ready to find their forever homes. Biscuit, the long-haired chocolate dachshund, was the first to be adopted! Barkley, Charlie and Nugget, Sequoia, Carlos, Brownie, and Baxter all followed by the end of day 1. 8 dogs found new homes!
On Day 2, there were ten times the amount of people waiting to find a new four-legged family member. Jimmy (MrBeast’s real name) revealed that every dog who gets adopted also receives free pet food for life from Jinx, and free pet insurance for life from Spot.
One of many heart-warming highlights came when Zoey’s new owner, who has previously adopted six shelter dogs, was given an extra gift – $10,000! But it came with a catch – Jimmy made her promise to give Zoey lots of extra scratches! “I’d do that for nothing,” she replied!
By the end of the day, MrBeast and his friends had adopted 44 dogs – nearly half of the animals looking for new homes.
Although things were going well, and everyone was proud of the success they’ve had so far – they noticed one sweet dog who was getting passed by more than the others. His name is Buffet, and he only has three legs after being hit by a car. So they made sure to focus on finding this sweet baby his forever home.
So MrBeast put together a $50k marketing campaign on the side of a bus, with a huge picture of Buffet that would drive around town!
At the end of day 3, 69 dogs found new homes – only 1/3 to go!
Jimmy and his friends had a special volunteer join them on Day 4 – Dave Bautista, former WWE wrestler, and actor, perhaps best known for playing Drax in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films. It looked like he had a blast, speaking with prospective pet parents – and of course, goofing around with Jimmy and the others. At one point, Dave was wearing an earpiece and the Beast crew was feeding him silly lines to say during adoption interviews.
And at the end of Day 4, Buffet was adopted! That made him dog number 90, with only 10 more to go!
And on Day 5, the final 10 dogs were adopted! The person who adopted the final dog, Doralee, even got Dave Bautista’s blessing (he said he would adopt her if no one else did). Once he was given the go-ahead, Mr. Beast surprised him with $20,000 in addition to the free pet food and insurance for life!
And he wasn’t done quite yet – Jimmy also presented Big Dog Ranch Rescue with $100,000 for their help with the event, and letting them use their facility.
A Ripple Effect of Kindness
MrBeast’s initiative shines a spotlight on the importance of rescuing dogs. Each year, millions of dogs enter shelters, and unfortunately, not all have happy endings. Rescuing a dog from a shelter can be a transformative experience, not just for the dog, but for the adopter as well. These dogs often blossom with love and care, showing immense gratitude and loyalty to their new families.
What MrBeast has set in motion is more than just a one-time event; it’s a ripple effect of kindness and awareness. By showcasing the joy and love these rescues bring, he’s encouraging more people to consider adoption. Every dog deserves a chance at a happy life, and through adoption, we can give them that chance.
