It all has begun in 2013 when Gomes arrived in the city. Local volunteers asked to buy cookies. Donations would help them to afford better conditions for some street dogs.

The priest suggested the volunteers advertising their good deeds during masses. Then he also joined the NGO.

He was an active part of the projects. Soon, the man welcomed stray dogs into the church.
