Kayne the "crying pup" has touched hearts all over the world after a video of him being pet for the first time went viral. The video, which has almost 2.5 million views, shows the heartwarming transformation of Kayne as a terrified puppy being pet for the first time, to Kayne the happy pup playing in the leaves and loving life.

Unfortunately, animal abuse is more common than any of us want to believe, but there are ways you can help. If you see animal abuse in your area you can reach out to the Calcasieu Parish Animal Services and you can take a look at Louisiana animal cruelty laws to better understand what can be done.

Every animal deserves a loving family, and luckily for Kayne his story was a happy one!
