Rosie the kitten was just 3 weeks old when she was found near the brink of death by a trio of sisters: Thi Bui, Thoa Bui, and Tram Bui.
Luckily, the sisters rescued the little kitty from the streets, but she was very weak and it wasn’t clear she would survive. That’s when a very special husky stepped in to save the day.
Don’t you ever leave me
There are plenty of incredible sights to see on the city streets of Tokyo, but a man walking with his pet tortoise might be the strangest one of all. The odd pair is certainly catching our attention.
Hisao Mitani, a 62-year-old funeral parlor owner, has had his giant African tortoise Bon-chan for almost 20 years. His wife bought the animal from a pet store. Mitani and Bon-chan recently gained attention when pictures of their walks in downtown Tokyo surfaced and went viral.
Meet Smiley, a Golden Retriever born without eyes and raised in a puppy mill. Despite being born blind, Smiley is so happy and motivated that he has now found a new purpose in life as a therapy dog for the mentally ill and disabled.
And almost 10 years later, the certified therapy dog continues to bring joy to every room and to those struggling to fight depression, illness or disability.
Dog trainer Joanne George, Smiley’s owner, had a veterinarian sew up the pup’s eyelids soon after she brought him home in 2004.
Stasha Becker from Washington has created an adorable series of Instagram pictures that feature her seven-year-old son Julian, his beloved two Newfoundland dogs and their pet horse, Vizon. Stasha began documenting her son as he grew up with his dog Bruce in 2013, but since then another Newfoundland dog has joined the family and also an Arabian Stallion that they call Vizon, the photos gained popularity on the social network and in her last collection of photos she demonstrates the love that can exist between humans, and especially kids and their furry friends.
Exactly 2 hours and 6 minutes – that’s how long it took an amazing community of animals lovers to come together to save the lives of two canine friends.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue posted a photo of Kala and Keira appearing to hug. The touching photo was accompanied by a heart-wrenching message from the perspective of Kala.
“I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here. The people working in the shelters see how scared we are but just told each other that today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be ‘next.’ Keira is black and not a ‘real boxer,’ just a mix. She’s so brave and tells me it will be okay no matter what happens. She tells me to be brave too but I don’t know if I can be. Can you see our faces. Keira knows what will happen. You can see it in her eyes. She’s putting on a brave face for sure but I can feel her heart beating fast while I’m clinging to her. If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me. I’ll see her as she goes down the hallway. She won’t come back and I’ll cry. They’ll come for me next and I won’t be as brave. We’ve comforted each other while we were here. She gave me hope when I had none. Now it’s over. Unless…”
