We’re calling it – Tom Holland cuddling a bunch of rescue dogs is the greatest thing to happen to 2020 so far.

The Spider-Man actor made us spontaneously implode with joy when he met some adorable pooches from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

The 23-year-old teamed up with the charity to promote their #RescueIsMyFavouriteBreed campaign and encourage more people to adopt canines rather than buy them from breeders.

This involved the important task of Tom playing with, kissing and snuggling a series of pups in a video that is frankly, too cute for the internet.

In between having the time of his life, the British actor answered a series of dog-related questions.

When asked if Spider-Man would ever have a furry sidekick, he predicted that the superhero would quite fancy having one to cuddle up to after a long day of saving the world.

‘Spider-Man doesn’t really need a sidekick when it comes to fighting crime,’ the Avengers star said.

‘But maybe on a sad, lonely night after fighting crime, he could use a cuddle.’

We can just see it now. ‘Spider-Dog: with great pets come great responsibility.’

(Feel free to trademark that tagline, MCU, we know it’s catchy.)

While his superhero alter-ego is in need of some furry loving, Tom’s already found his one true love in the family dog, Tessa, a Staffordshire bull terrier, who the Hollands welcomed into their home as a pup.

Tom said: ‘If I was a dog for a day, I’d probably hang out with my dog, Tess, so we could communicate, and I’d find out if she loves me more than she loves my dad. Unfortunately, I think I already know the answer to that.’

He also joked: ‘And I’d poo outside.’

Who hasn’t, ey, Tom?!

The Dolittle actor insisted that all dogs ‘are cute in their own way’ and encouraged people not to pick a dog to take home based on what they look like.

‘I’d say to anyone looking to rehome a dog, don’t base your decision on looks,’ he said.

‘Look at your lifestyle – where you live, how active you are – and decide what kind of dog you’d like based on this rather than whether it’s got pretty blue eyes or something. All dogs are cute in their own way.’

‘I’m a huge dog lover and I just think that every dog deserves a second chance regardless of where they’ve come from or what they’ve been through.’

Our hearts just melted.
