Pit Bull Was Devastated After Her Babies Passed, Then She Met An Orphaned Puppy

Animal Control officers picked up a stray pregnant Pit Bull and contacted a local rescue to invite her in instead. The rescue wanted this sweet mama-to-be to give birth in a comfortable setting rather than a scary shelter.

Halfway There Rescue decided to take Daya into her shelter. However, Daya tragically lost her babies in utero and also had a bad infection which required surgery.

Daya was able to recover and everything went smoothly. She went on to live with a foster where she could recuperate. Daya was now safe, but one important thing was missing: her babies. The staff noticed that Daya would take in socks and toys and act like they were her babies, perhaps to fill the void.

But what would fill the void even better would be a real puppy. Enter Raisin. Raisin was an orphaned puppy that Halfway There took in after finding her in the road. She had a ruptured eye that needed to be removed, and she was in need of a mother.

The rescue saw this as the perfect opportunity to give Daya what she’s been wanting – a tiny puppy to mother and raise. Daya and Raisin hit it off and the two of them bonded right away. Daya was the mother that Raisin never had, and Raisin was the baby that Daya had been longing for. They cuddled every second and helped each other heal.

The two of them went to live with another foster together where they would continue to heal. But as they got older, they started to drift apart. Probably because Raisin was now old enough to find her own way. Soon after, Raisin’s foster family decided to adopt her! Raisin now has an older doggy brother named Charlie who she gets along great with. Her parents give all the credit to Daya for teaching her out to act with other dogs.

Daya went on to live with her original foster, who then decided to adopt her as well! Daya now has a doggy sibling who suffers from anxiety, but she does her best to help calm his nerves. The two of them are the best of friends. Daya and Raisin helped each other get to where they are today. They are both loving their new homes and are living the best life ever!

He Walked Home From An Overnight Job, And A ‘Shriek’ Came From Dingy Plastic Bag

It’s never been easy for a puppy to make it out alive on their own. Fortunately, this pup found a good place to take shelter from the hot sun and the world as he inched himself inside his plastic bag. Unfortunately, where there is pain and fear, there are often people looking to help those in need.

The heroes from Animal Aid arrived on the scene after a caring passerby called them. The man who phoned was on his way home from work when he heard the dog cry.

One rescuer brought some dog biscuits and put them by the puppy. When he tried to touch him through the bag, the puppy screamed. To see something so small and helpless in this much pain was heart wrenching.

Thankfully, hunger got the best of him and the puppy emerged. He was riddled with mange causing his fur to fall out. He also had an injured hind leg.

The puppy was picked up, carefully, and taken to the Animal Aid sanctuary. The medical team didn’t hesitate. He was given pain medication so the poor baby didn’t have to suffer any longer.

The vet realized that his pain mostly stemmed from a deep wound on his hip. They irrigated the wound then put numbing antibiotic salve on it. That would make him feel so much better and treat any infection. He already felt so much better!

The next step was to give the puppy a medicated bath for his mange. This would be his new ritual. This type of mange can be treated; it just has to be treated diligently or it won’t resolve. Animal Aid volunteers happily give medicated baths to all their animals with mange and those baths work miracles.

After six weeks of medical care, baths, and lots of TLC, the puppy– now named Jumper– made a miraculous recovery.

How handsome! Jumper is full of spunk and energy. All of his new human friends adore him. He loves his new home. There are tons of dogs to play with and lots of yummy food to eat. He will go to a forever home as soon as he’s medically cleared. The good news is: lots of adopters are interested in this little boy. Isn’t that great?

Man Completely “Lost-It”, Races Toward His Lost Dogs When He Spots Them At Shelter

When Sandy Hernandez’ two Siberian Huskies went missing, he was devastated. They managed to hop the fence in their yard and Hernandez spent the entire weekend searching for them, but to no avail. However, they were lucky enough to be picked up by Miami-Dade Animal Services who found them on the streets.

 

Image Credit Source: CBS Miami/Youtube

 

The Hernandez family decided to get their dogs, Chloe and Teddy, photoshoot to highlight the importance of pet adoption. Thinking that they were strays, a man was kind enough to bring them to a shelter and reunite them with their beloved family. That’s when the animal protection service director contacted Eduardo, explaining that they were already at their headquarters and available for adoption.

When Hernandez arrived, he saw his two beautiful pooches posing for the cameras during the photoshoot.

“That’s my dog, man! That’s my dog,” he yelled, as he ran up to the shoot crying. He immediately hugged his dogs, who were equally as happy to see their owner again.

The pups, 3-year-old Ragnar and 11-month-old Kloud are now back at home with Hernandez. Hernandez also decided to get both of them microchipped to avoid situations like this in the future.

Dog Passes After ‘Common’ Mistake And Dog Owner Posts Warning To Save Others

As we all know, we enjoy watching videos of dogs, cats and all animals that bring us joy. However, there are times when we need to get that word out for safety and bring awareness to help avoid future tragedies to our 4-legged friends.

This is the story about Petey. Please meet Christina Young who lost her best friend Petey and wanted to get the word out to other pet parents.

Christina said, ‘good bye’ to Petey, after a tragic accident took his life. She wanted other pet parents to know that this was preventable, and for most of us, “this accident” has already happened in our own homes.

 

Image Source: Facebook/Christina Young

 

She came home one day with the expectation of seeing a tail wagging Petey to a quiet house. Along with this quiet house, her somber boyfriend Christian had devastating news about their boy, Petey. Young posted this on her Facebook page:

 

“As [Christian] walked in further he saw our sweet boy laying lifeless with a stupid chip bag over his head. He was able to get them off the counter that we will forever blame ourselves for leaving out. He ate every chip out but of course went back for crumbs…which made the bag tighter and tighter with there being nothing left inside every time he would go for more he would inhale making the bag tighter & tighter around his head.. ultimately resulting in suffocation.”

 

Christina simply couldn’t understand how this could happen. Why didn’t Petey pull the bag off of his head with his paws?

He was very bright, smart and agile. So, she did research of her own and found information that nobody ever talks about online. Young wanted to ‘spread the word’ so pet owners know the dangers of leaving potato chip, popcorn, cereal, bread and even dog treat bags lying around. They can pose a serious threat to our beloved animals.

 

Image Source: Facebook/Christina Young

 

“3-5 pet suffocation’s get reported every week and 42% of those occur while the owner is in the next room. It only takes about 3 minutes for their oxygen to drop to fatal levels. With this happening so often we were so surprised by the lack of awareness on this topic out there.”

 

Pet parents have no idea about these daily food related hazards, and before it’s too late, awareness wants to be spread for others. Jennifer Young and Christian want to raise such awareness. The two want such things to happen so another pet doesn’t suffer the same fate as their pet did.

 

Image Source: Facebook/Christina Young

 

“So I just ask that in honor of my boy Petey that you be extra careful, warn other dog owners & give your fur babies some extra love today and every day after this. I pray none of you ever have to experience your heartbreaking this way. We love you papas you were the best boy in the whole world & we will remember our good times forever”

 

We’re so very sorry for the loss of Petey and send our condolences to Christina and Christian. Rest in peace Petey.

 

We ask all of you that in honor of Petey and his grieving parents, please share this story to protect other pets and pet parents from this hidden danger.

Owner Sealed Dog’s Eyes And Mouth Shut With Superglue, Dumped Her On A Busy Road

Meet Glory, who is a Terrier mix dog. The poor pup was found dumped in the most disgusting condition by the roadside. The person who came across her thought she had passed away, but soon realized that her eyes and mouth were sealed shut with super glue.

Glory was rushed to the local  hospital where they discovered bruises on her stomach after being hit from someone. She was taken to the Emergency Room where the doctors spent countless hours to help remove the glue and tend to her other wounds caused by it.

Glory was only able to show personality after weeks of recovery. She was later shifted to a loving foster family, where she was looked after by her foster father. Later, the Waggy family came forward to adopt her. They’re looking forward to giving her a happy life forever!

We’re happy that Glory has finally found the home she deserves. But unfortunately, her abuser is still roaming free.

Soldier Waits At The Airport And His ‘Special’ Friend Comes Off The Plane

We didn’t get here without great sacrifice and loss. And we honor our heroes every day with days filled with happiness and choices. We need to make their sacrifices worthwhile by recognizing the important duties of all those who fight for our freedoms. If you want to know how much we appreciate vets, one look at their partners in life, or “war dogs,” is enough evidence. “War Dogs” have been fighting alongside our soldiers for centuries and serve as essential members of regiments.

Family Adopts Foster Dog Even When Vet Cautioned That He’s Mentally Challenged

All Dogs definitely have their own unique personalities, and Stanley’s was apparent right from the beginning. This was something a little different though, and the quirks were a bit alarming. Stanley’s Mom and Dad adopted him but soon started to worry about their dog. Stanley, the Golden Retriever was very friendly, loving and physically healthy, but there was clearly much more to his story.

Stanley was rescued from the Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid-Florida and knowing he was a little different. When they got him from his foster home, he was sleeping on the table.

However, they quickly fell in love with Stanley despite his quirks and decided to take him home. Stanley got along with their kids and the other pets right away.

 

Image Source: Imgur

 

But the Stanley’s mom and dad became concerned about their new dog. They had success in the past training other dogs, but Stanley was different. They worried he may injure himself climbing onto counters and tables.

 

Image Source: Imgur

 

Stanley wasn’t deaf, but he never responded to his name being called. Two trainers were hired but eventually quit on him. And the one suggested the dog may be mentally challenged.

The family took this seriously and studied his behavior patterns even more. They discovered an obsessive-compulsive routine where Stanley would constantly gather a slipper, remote, and stuffed animal together every day.

 

Image Source: Imgur

 

They decided to test Stanley with a dog IQ test they heard about from a friend, and he failed at getting out from under a blanket, responding to his name, and finding the treat inside a cup.

 

Image Source: Imgur

 

The vet agreed with the assessment and said that the dog’s challenges could be a result of inbreeding and stubbornness.

 

Image Source: Imgur

 

It may never be revealed why exactly Stanley acts the way he does, but it’s not something for his family to worry about. He’s physically healthy and surrounded by lots of love!

His owner said, “He may be a bit slow, but his silly quirks, good nature, and odd little personality makes us love him even more.”

You have to love that Stanley is getting a fair shot at life regardless of his challenges. Every dog deserves love and happiness!

She immediately called City of Folsom Animal Services to get the coyote some help. When rescuers arrived, they took a closer look at this animal and discovered that it was really a young coyote with an awful case of mange.

They immediately took the coyote back to their clinic where she was treated for her mange as well as dehydration. They decided to name her Princess and eventually transferred her to Gold Country Wildlife Rescue where she would receive further treatment.

Rescuers refused to give up on her, and after a long struggle, she perked up. She was using the litterbox again and eating regularly when she was given a medicated bath by caretakers there.

Once Princess had recovered from a sickness, she was able to return back into the wild. The animal rescue center put her in Sierra Wildlife Rescue where she was able to interact with other coyote while simultaneously recovering from a recent illness.

Soon after, Princess and her all new coyote friends were released back into the wild on over 800 acres of beautiful open roaming land.

Princess has come a long way from knocking at death’s door. Now she is a beautiful, healthy coyote!

New-Mom Introduces Newborn To Her Pet, Dog Shows Mom Her 1st Rookie Mistake

Dogs are known to have an uncanny ability to sense when a new baby has arrived. Recent studies show that dogs can smell when a newborn is related to their human pack leader. This may be because dogs preferentially form bonds with people in charge of looking after them. Dogs naturally form attachments to the new baby, who they see as in higher position.

The video in this article shows the HILARIOUS lengths babies’ puppies will go to ensure they are safe. Dogs are known for being loyal, but there is no limit to their love for human babies!

This type of nurturing is expected from a parent, but it can be hard to see, when the only caregiving has only arms. Especially since this one dog lacks the digits to do most tasks, yet has figured out how to accomplish something so darn adorable— and is taking care of the tiny baby she already adores.

Mom Worries When Entranced Dog Won’t Break His ‘Stare’ At Same Spot Everyday

The loyalty of dogs to their human loved ones is seen in the numerous stories of dog-parents. Ask them and they will share stories of how their pup kept bouncing back up after anything life threw at it, whether or not it was understood by its owner or handler.

Every single day, deep down inside, there are things that remind us everything is going to be ok. This heartwarming story provides a small ray of light in our lives to show us that when all hope seems lost, there are still genuinely good people to be found in the world.

His stare is trancelike for good reason, this is the moment he waits for every day once his favorite boy leaves home in the early hours.

Dogs can sense time of day and are usually pretty accurate when it comes to a consistent routine. Once the sun hits a certain point, or a dog can sense enough time has passed, he or she will then take notice and get ready to respond appropriately.

However, this story isn’t about routine as much as it’s about love. We often wonder how anyone’s life can be totally full without a dog. Can they undoubtedly say they’ve experienced unconditional love in its truest form if they’ve never had a dog before?

We would argue no. If someone doesn’t agree, send them this story and we bet their minds will change.

Abused Dog Waked Her Rescuer In The Middle Of The Night To Say Thank You

Niya had a sad, unfair start in life. She was severely abused and then abandoned. Fortunately, she ended up in Gibson County Animal Shelter in Trenton, Tennessee. Though an animal shelter cafn be a scary place to find oneself, it beats being in a home with an abuser or starving on the streets.

Niya didn’t feel safe ever again. She was terrified of everything, including the noises she heard inside her home. It seemed that hope was lost. Thankfully, Kimberley Slown came into Niya’s life. Kimberley Slown is an angel who works with Arrow Dog Rescue to give dogs a second chance. With Miss Kimberley, hope is never lost!

The dog in this photo had a large gash above her eye and one on her nose. The one on her nose was most likely from a tin can being used as a muzzle meaning she spent time in someone’s home meaning she needs your help. This pup couldn’t care less that I was photographing her for this page since she is carrying around injuries that represent neglect.

As soon as she arrived at Slown’s house, she laid in a corner and went to sleep. She slept all day and night and when she woke up, she still wouldn’t move because she was too scared to interact with anyone.

Then, the next night, something INCREDIBLE happened. Slown was sleeping when suddenly she felt hot breath on her hand. It was Niya!

“She just breathed into my hand and I woke up and immediately paid attention to her, petting her and talking to her,” Slown told The Dodo. ” She smiled and leaned in.”

After a few minutes, Niya walked away but then moments later, Niya came back and leaned in again to thank her rescuer. “It was overwhelming. I was crying.” Slown recalled.

The dog that couldn’t trust a soul was beginning to see that there’s hope, that a good life is possible! And she knew exactly who to say “Thank you” to.

A Box Was Left At Shelter And The Smell Was Horrible But Yet They Had To Open It

Shelter workers found a mysteriously taped up box on their doorstep. They were appalled when they heard desperate cries for help coming from inside. As they tried to open the package, they instantly registered the putrid rotten smell that emanated from within.

The smell was coming from a creature that broke their hearts into a thousand pieces. The workers were shocked to find a living, breathing puppy crammed inside the box in a panicked state. The dog, later named Pandora, was covered in strange wounds and her fur was so filthy and matted that she could hardly move.

The workers shaved off her fur to get a better look at her injuries. They realized that the rotten smell was not from “infected wounds”, but from big and small lumps that covered her body. She was given a cleansing bath and prepped up for surgery.

Pandora endured multiple surgeries to get the extra lumps out of her body. Later, the biopsy report revealed that one of the masses had grown cancerous. But, thanks to the timely actions of the doctors, Pandora was finally out of danger!

18-Year-Old Blind Dachshund Was Dumped At Shelter, Clung To First Person Who Showed Her Love

Muneca, an 18-year-old blind Dachshund, was dumped at an animal shelter, leaving her alone and terrified. At this time, she no longer had a home, her vision, or someone to love her.

That’s when shelter volunteer Elaine Seamans went to see the senior Dachshund at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in Los Angeles.

As soon as Seamans got down and showed her attention, Muneca leaped into her arms and clung to her, as if she was saying, “Don’t ever let me go.” Muneca was scared, and Seamans helped her feel safe.

 

Image Source: Frosted Faces Foundation

 

Luckily, this heartwarming moment was caught on camera by John Hwang, a photographer who was nearby. He posted the photos on social media, which quickly went viral.

It didn’t take long before people all over the world were voicing their concern for and interest in Muneca, including Frosted Faces Foundation, a rescue in Ramona, California, that provides vet care to senior animals whose lives are in jeopardy.

As soon as they saw the picture online, they knew they had to get Muneca out of the shelter as soon as possible. They brought her to a veterinarian to be examined before placing her with a loving foster.

Thankfully, aside from having poor vision, she was in pretty good shape for her age.

Since Muneca was now well-known all over the Internet, the rescue was flooded with applications from people who wanted to help this poor pup and give her a forever home.

Muneca was once unwanted, but now she was desired by so many people nationwide!

Out of all the applications, they chose the person who they thought would be the best fit for her. This person wound up being Amy Gann, who drove to San Diego to meet Muneca. The two of them bonded instantly, and the rescue knew they were a perfect match.

In her new home, Muneca enjoys warm bubble baths, fun trips to the beach, and is spoiled with lots of treats and a warm bed.

4-Week-Old Puppy Was Sold Online For $600 — Then Quickly Dumped

A puppy named Little Bear landed in a shelter in 2012 at just four weeks old. He was the result of basement breeding and was then sold off on Craigslist to a new owner who wasn’t happy about all of the work that came with taking care of him.

Little Bear was sold on Craigslist for $600 to someone who ended up not even wanting him.

 

Image Source: Social Tees Animal Rescue

This person recognized that the pup needed to be bottle-fed and wanted to get rid of him immediately.

But at least he contacted Social Tees Animal Rescue instead of dumping him explaining that he bought the dog for his six-month-old boy but didn’t like the work that would be required to care for Little Bear.

The man made it clear though that’d he’d leave the dog on the street if they didn’t take him in, so the rescue rushed to get him.

Social Tees took Little Bear in and began the bottle-feeding he so desperately needed. This is when they learned he had come from a basement breeder.

Puppies born to basement breeding are often separated from their mothers way too soon and die without proper care. Little Bear was one of the lucky ones.

After a rough start to life, things have finally started looking up for Little Bear! The first vet visit went well, and he’s made progress right on schedule for a pup his age. 🙂

He’d be able to eat on his own once all of his teeth came in, but until then he’d be cared for by people who love him.

Little Bear would then be put up for adoption once ready and eventually get that loving forever home to top off his journey!

Little Bear is one example of dogs being bred for profit by people who don’t actually care about their well-being. But there are people out there who are willing to step up and fight for these dogs.

Couple adopts rescue dog before meeting him. When the door opens to reveal him they “lose it”

Many dogs are placed in high-kill shelters every day with little hope for adoption, so Tracy Whyatt stepped in and decided to do something to help. Tracy followed her passion for saving unloved dogs and started a company called Tracy’s Dogs.

 

 

Tracy and her husband, Scott, load up dogs from overcrowded kill shelters into a 32-foot trailer and drive them to other states to find them forever homes. They’ve partnered up with PetSmart as a meeting place for the dogs and their new owners.

As you can imagine, the moment the owners see their new dogs for the first time is beautiful and emotional. Everyone gathers around the trailer as the door swings open, and the tears begin to flow. Welcome to your new lives, pups! 🙂

 

Since starting their company in 2011, Tracy and Scott have adopted out over 3,700 dogs! If it weren’t for them, most of these dogs would not have survived. They have a wonderful thing going here, and Tracy’s Dogs deserves all the recognition they can get!

Deaf Dog Was Told He’s Not Allowed In The Pool, Throws ‘Oscar-Worthy’ Temper Tantrum

It’s a nice, sunny day and all Max the Great Dane wants to do is jump into the pool and have a refreshing swim. But mom isn’t having it!

Sadly, his human isn’t approving swim time. Wanting to swim badly, this big guy starts whining ever so softly, but in no time it turns into some very loud whimpering. Just like a kid who’s being denied his favorite candy.

To top it off, Max is also deaf. It’s brilliant how he can lip read and understand hand gestures from his owner. He usually has no problems agreeing with his mom, but right now, he is just downright disappointed because he is not allowed into the pool!

 

He even walks to the edge of the pool and tries to dip just one paw into the water, as if to test the temperature (and his mom!). But he decides otherwise and continues his whining which has now become very persistent, showing how annoyed he is with his mom.

We do hope poor max got to swim eventually. Every dog deserves his fun!

Workers Find Dumped Golden Retriever, As She Gives Birth To ‘Cow Babies’

When Rosie, a Golden Retriever mix, arrived at the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, dumped and heavily pregnant, shelter heads Katie and John Black, immediately began tending to the abandoned, homeless dog.

The staff had taken care of their fair share of pregnant dogs in the past, but when Rosie gave birth, it was clear that she was going to be a special case, as Rosie’s 4 healthy Pups looked nothing like her.


Unlike the gold-coated mama Rosie, the puppies were a spotty lot. The black and brown marks on their white fur made them eerily resemble a bunch of tiny baby cows! Fittingly, they were given the bovine names of Daisy, Clarabelle, Betsy, and Moo.

Cross-breeding often leads to striking differences in features of the puppies, but in Rosie’s case, the absolute lack of similarity was remarkable. But that didn’t affect Rosie’s love for her sweet pups even by a tiny bit!

Today, Rosie and all her babies have been adopted into loving homes. We are so thankful to Katie and John for their sincere efforts towards caring for the litter and finding them the best homes!

Defiant Husky Told To Get Into His Kennel, Uses “English” To Talk Back

It’s bad enough when the kids learn how to talk back to you, but when the family dog learns how to push back, OH BOY!

This video shows that even the strongest parent will secretly melt when trying to get this furry one to obey.

 

Brian, a handsome Siberian Husky with signature deep blue eyes, is repeatedly asked by his guardian to “Go in your house”.

However, Brian is not in the mood to retreat to his doghouse right now, so he responds with a clear and resounding “No.”

He is so clear in responding to this direct request (complete with wagging tail), it makes one wonder if Brian has a complete vocabulary to express himself.

 

 

Known to be one of the canine world’s most talkative breeds, Siberian Huskies no doubt developed their voices when having to pull sleds through the frigid climates of the northern hemisphere.

For kids who talk back to their parents, they will get a quick trip to the “doghouse,” but for Brian the talking Husky, it’s clear that he is going to stay right there on that comfy couch!

Homeless Dog Was Hurting All Over And He Couldn’t Communicate His Pain To People

Benji, a homeless dog, had spent his entire live surviving on the streets. He would hide under parked cars for shelter and eat out of trash cans. Over the years, his matted fur became a major concern for him. He was itchy and in pain all the time, but nobody could help him.

Image Credit: Hope For Paws -YouTube Video

In this video, we see some rescue volunteers on a mission to save Benji. However, Benji hates the idea of humans chasing him. He instinctively runs away and hides, but the rescue team keep persevering.

After much effort, Benji lets one of the rescuers touch him. The woman could feel that the poor boy is in severe discomfort because of his fur. So she tries her best to win his trust. She finally wins Benji’s trust, and the dog walks to the rescuer and gets into the rescue van!

Benji was immediately taken to the shelter where the caretakers proceeded to shave off a lifetime worth of neglected fur. They were horrified to find countless tiny pests eating away at Benji’s skin at many places. It must have been a nightmare for him to endure the flea-infestation for so many years.

Benji later received his first bath and the caretakers washed away all the pests from his body. However, Benji was unusually quiet even after rescue. It was almost as if his soul had “shut down” from his traumatizing life on the streets.

That’s when Benji’s foster mom and his foster siblings jumped in. With baby steps, the scarred dog learned to love with his foster family, and even grew protective of his doggie siblings! What a transformation! We hope Benji finds a perfect forever home that understands his nature and loyalty!

Timmy Was Found Chained Up In One Of The Largest Dog Fighting Raids Ever

More than 350 dogs were rescued from properties across 3 southern states, in what is being called the biggest dog fighting ring in US history. Signs of neglect and abuse are everywhere, these photos show just how badly these dogs have been treated.

Timmy, an 8-week-old pup, was one of the youngest dogs rescued.

No dog deserves or needs this around its neck, especially a tiny pup.

How anyone could treat an animal so cruelly, we’ll never know.

This photo just about says it all.

But Timmy had the biggest smile when help arrived. 🙂

A total of ten suspects were arrested and charged with dogfighting.

But it was too late for many of the dogs. They found dead animals all over the properties. But little Timmy was one of the survivors.

He was transported to the Humane Society of Calvert County in Maryland for care.

Looking much healthier and happier!

It’s good to see Timmy here with an appropriate leash.

Timmy would learn to trust humans and go on to a forever home.

So comfy in his new life! 🙂

It would be a long legal process, but Timmy and the other dogs would get what they deserved.

Timmy went on to become the “poster pup” for the ASPCA to help bring attention to abused dogs everywhere.

About 9-months after the raid, 10 of the 14 defendants had pleaded guilty. Fortunately, the more than 350 dogs were rescued before things could get even worse.

 

Town Refused To Help Poor Dog Next Door, So Neighbors Break Into Yard To Rescue The Dog

For years, a Golden Retriever endured the hellish clutches of abuse from his owners. He was often beaten up, chained without food, and his muzzle taped shut. The neighbors’ patience wore thin as they witnessed the dog slowly slip away into depression.

One day, the dog barked hysterically, then started lying motionless on the cold concrete. The neighbors knew that at this rate, the dog would soon be dead. They took the bold decision to break into the dog’s yard.

They hopped over the fence, unchained the dog and brought him home. They called him Alfie. The couple were aware that the extreme abuse had left Alfie vulnerable and sensitive. They treated him with extra patience and love and waited for him to recover from his traumatic experiences.

Soon, Alfie came to trust his new parents. He became the life and soul of the house with his happy prancing and joyful smiles. He would go on picnics on the beach and dance around the family during all celebrations.

He even got his own chew toy, most likely the first one he ever had. Alfie’s transformation is unbelievable as he looks like the happiest pup in the whole world. We hope more and more people take an inspiration from this and stop being silent observers of abuse.

We hope all of Alfie’s bad days are behind him. What a miraculous journey!

Mom Found “Odd-Looking” Baby Bird Abandoned On Lawn And Documented How He Grew Over 1-Year

Susan Hickman found a cracked bird egg lying on the ground. Curiosity got the better of her, and she picked it up only to find a surprise in store for her. Inside the egg was a small baby Starlet, still alive, and barely clinging to life.

 

Since Susan didn’t know where the egg came from, she had no way of returning it to its nest. She decided to give the little birdie a chance and raise him herself. Even though experienced bird rehabbers warned her that the bird had little chance of surviving, she felt like she had to at least try.

She named the bird Klinger and placed him in a makeshift incubator. She then began feeding him cat food mixed with applesauce, hard-boiled egg, and avian vitamins. For two weeks, she fed him every. . .     Click here to read more >>

Man Saved Bald Dog While 4-Wheeling, Sees Her 1-Year Later And Won’t Hold Back

Recently, Matt Bentley found himself in an invasive situation. After catching wind of a dog trap call, he went out looking for the dog with the hope of setting it free. When he found her running on a deserted trail in Salt Flats, he realized just how dire the situation was—she was weak from hunger and nearly hairless from scraping against rough rocks for refuge from dust storms.

When Matt drove her to the Utah Animal Adoption Center, he pleaded with them to take her. They quickly agreed. This poor dog needed extensive medical treatment. Quickly, a woman named Jamie heard about the “doggy warrior” and wanted to donate money to help the dog through the rough road ahead. Jamie also gave the sweet dog a name: Kelly.

Kelly was so friendly. Upon meeting Jamie for the first time, she came right up to Jamie, wagging her tail and wanting to be pet. The instant bond Jamie felt was evident! Despite the pain she must have been in and whatever past trauma she was working through, Kelly made the best of it and put forth a positive attitude for everyone’s sake.

Even with a fighting attitude, Kelly’s recovery seemed slow. It was >> Click here to read more >>

Traumatized Dog So Fearful Of Everything, She Stared At Wall For Days

Angel the Greyhound mix has lived under the trauma of abuse – until now. Angel was rescued from an animal organization in Ireland, living in fear of what would happen next.

Poor Angel had been abused psychologically and survived the harsh realities of life on the streets. Although she resisted psychological help, her emotional pain had to heal somehow. One day, she turned around and faced her fears; all thanks to inspiration from a service animal that had treated her with kindness.

A recent PAWS Animal Rescue Ireland rescue became excited when they discovered another dog had arrived. It turned out it wasn’t her brother, but seeing another dog had perked the little pup up.

Angel’s personality changed and she became a new dog over a short six months after being rescued from being abandoned by her previous owner, Susan.

She found her happy ending with a couple who recently lost their dog, so they were thrilled to add Angel to their pack.

6-Years After Raising Wild Gorilla He Introduced His Wife & Despite Warnings, She Got Too Close

Damian Aspinall’s work with gorillas started when he and his family founded the Aspinall Foundation in 1992. The Aspinall Foundation worked to increase gorilla numbers by releasing zoo-raised gorillas into their natural habitats.
