This Golden Retriever Adopted A Orphaned Kitten That Was Rejected By Its Mother

October 7, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Cute |

dog rescue kittens

When Imichi, a tiny tabby kitten, was rejected by her mother she was taken in by Ponzu, a golden retriever, and Jessiepon, his owner. Jessiepon is best known for turning her previous cat, Wasabi-chan, into an Internet sensation; after Wasabi-chan died suddenly last year, Jessiepon decided to open her home to this rescue kitty. From the looks of Jessiepon’s Instagram, though, it seems the rescue might have been Ponzu’s idea.

The dog struck up an immediate friendship with Imichi, treating Imichi like a puppy and playing with her constantly once she regained her strength. Jessiepon has started chronicling the animals’ friendship in photos, and the two appear to be inseparable — and very, very loving.

Animal Shelter Puts Dogs In Photo Booths To Help Them Get Adopted And It’s Working

October 6, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, dog, Uplifting |

Photographer Guinnevere Shuster of the Humane Society of Utah came up with a fantastic idea for helping dogs get adopted: the doggy photo booth. Her photos of the dogs do a much better job at capturing their personalities than standard snapshots, and the results have been impressive: 93.26% of the dogs are now finding new homes. The photo booth-style portraits are able to show multiple facets of a dog’s personality through four pictures of each puppy. Here are some of the portraits that have been shared so far:

We think TETON might be part bat, part piggy and part Pittie or a character you might find in a children’s book. He makes adorable snorting noise while trying to shower you with kisses and hugs

Nepal Dog Festival Celebrates And Thanks Dogs For Being Our Loyal Friends

festival for dogs

Hey, China. This is the type of dog festival that people want to go to. The complete opposite of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, the Tihar Festival celebrates man’s loyal best friend. In Nepal, Hindu citizens designate the festival as a time to shower their dogs with love and attention. You won’t see dogs crammed in cages or animal rights activists protesting, it is all about loving dogs in all their four-legged glory.

The festival comes at a time where all eyes are on another dog-themed festival, China’s Yulin festival, where more than 10,000 dogs are tortured, cooked and served up to festival goers. Yulin has been under intense criticism and protest. Many celebrities have spoke out against the horrible mistreatment of the animals. Comedian, Ricky Gervais, has spoke out extensively about the Yulin, but now he is sharing the joy of the Tihar festival.

Kind Women Knit Sweaters For Rescued Chickens To Keep Them Warm

September 23, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Heartwarming |

sweaters for chickens

Thanks to two kind-hearted women, rescued battery chickens are experiencing how good – and cozy – life can be.

Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, from Falmouth in Cornwall, England, own around 60 hens and half of them are former battery chickens. This means that they have, unfortunately, spent most of their lives in cages, and are not able to acclimatize to normal weather conditions.

To keep them warm during the frigid winter months, Ann and Nicola came up with an ingenious solution: knit them wooly chicken jumpers.

Says Nicola:

“It’s important to make people aware of the poor conditions the hens live in and the fact that they have no feathers when they are retired.” 

Nicola and Ann are now receiving special requests for jumpers from hen-keepers near and far. Instead of selling the tank tops for profit, she said the money goes to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa.

biker takes kitten on road trip

32-year-old biker and sheet metal worker Pat Doody recently rescued a kitten while riding cross country from Nevada to New Jersey. He found the kitten at a gas station and gave it the best name he could think of at the time: "Party Cat."

"I was at this truck stop getting gas, and this little guy just needed help," he told Revzilla. "He was pretty badly burned, so I picked him up and tucked him inside my vest. We’re feeding him regularly now, so he’s doing better, even though he’s sort of living on the road until we get home."

Adorable Photos: Kids Read to Shelter Cats in ‘Book Buddies’ Program

book buddies cat shelter reading program

Cat lovers, brace yourselves. The Animal Rescue League of Berks County’s is running a beautiful “Book Buddies” program, that has kids grade 1 to 8 come into the shelter to read to the cats, with organizers saying that it serves a dual purpose of soothing the cats and upping the kids’ reading levels. The program reportedly got its start after a staffer had her son practice his reading skills while spending time at the shelter. Staff members took note and like it so much that it became a regular volunteer program. Since the project was launched in August 2013, many children (including home-schooled and autistic) who participated in Book Buddies have shown significant improvements in their reading. The Berks County ARL accepts donations through their site.They are also on FacebookTwitter,YouTube and Pinterest.
