The man said, “This dog seems to be as thirsty as I was.” So he went down the well, filled his shoe with water and held it by his mouth.

People said, “O Messenger of Allah, is there reward for us also in (treating) the wild animals.?” He said, “In every living being there is reward.” (Bukhari, Hadith 5663 and Muslim, Hadith 2244)
