A woman in Toronto recently discovered something while she was walking her dog. While at a local beach, her dog started pulling her toward something…it wasn’t a sea creature or a bird, though. The pup was after a far smaller critter. A mouse had fallen into the frigid waters and was desperately trying to reach solid land.

The woman and her dog left, but a bystander stayed to watch the mouse. Once the little guy finally reached the shore, she scooped him up, recognizing that he needed a helping hand to get warm.

Martine Gingerich, the woman who helped the mouse, has an important message we can all stand to hear.
