A police officer in Kansas City, Missouri did something every animal lover will agree is pretty amazing!
The motorcycle officer saw two dogs wandering around in the freezing cold and instead of just making a call to patrol to have them picked up, he called animal control, and then got parked his bike to sit with the dogs until help arrived.
