For the first time, he has friends and he is wanted. He has finally found a home where he can contribute and be somewhat appreciated.  Being salted into their houses brings a whole new family for each of them! Now on to a successful school year!

Hagrid took something out of a vault when he and Harry visited Gringotts Bank. Later that same day, the bank was broken into, and the vault that was tampered with, was the same one that Harry and Hagrid had stopped at.
