A friendly dog in a small shop in Japan can though, making his cute and fury face the first thing people see when they stop by the store.
A Pit Bull was recently discovered carrying an injured little friend inside her mouth near a Savannah, Georgia, neighborhood.
According to the Police Department’s Facebook:
“Chachi, a scraggly long hair Chihuahua mix, was suffering from a horrific eye infection. And Jonie, a white lab-pit bull mix many times larger than Chachi, was walking around with Chachi in her mouth, carrying him from place to place, stopping occasionally to lick his swollen eye. Clearly, Chachi appreciated the attention.”
Ikea has found a brilliant way to help animals in shelters find loving homes.
The retailer’s stores in Tempe, Arizona and Singapore are placing life-sized cardboard cutouts of homeless cats and dogs on the couches, rugs and bunk beds of its showrooms.
The cutouts all display a different bar code, which customers can scan with their phones for more information on the pet pictured.
Xander is a blind pug with a very special gift, which he uses to help the people who need it most – abused children. He lives in Oregon and lost his eyes in an accident. He was adopted from the Klamath Animal Shelter last January by Rodney Beedy, who right away knew he had a special dog.
Xander has a wonderful temperment and people at the shelter told Rodney that Xander would make an excellent therapy dog.
Eugene Bostick may just be the coolest 80 year old ever. After retiring 15 years ago he began a new venture which is possibly his most impactful work yet.
Shortly after retirement he built his very own train to take stray dogs on small adventures around the neighbourhood and surrounding woods, this is when he began his new role as a train conductor for strays.
Eugene is now dedicating his life to caring for and bringing some joy these strays who are left abandoned in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas.“People sometimes come by and dump dogs out here, leaving them to starve. So, we started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered. We made a place for them to live.”
If you walk into Rosa’s Fresh Pizza in Philadelphia, you can’t help but notice the walls are decorated with hundreds of Post-it notes and letters. The notes are from customers who donated $1 so homeless people in the community can come in and get a free slice.
Owner Mason Wartman started the program about one year ago after a customer asked if he could purchase a slice of pizza for a homeless person.
“I said, ‘Sure.’ I took his dollar and ran out and got some Post-it notes and put one up to signify that a slice was purchased,” he recalls.
Not one, but six police officers attended a father-daughter dance with 8 year-old Jewel Warren, whose father, Tim Warren, died in the line of duty four years ago
Dad Repurposes Leftover Crayons From Restaurants And Schools And Donates Them To Children’s Hospitals
Bryan Ware and his family were leaving a birthday dinner at a restaurant when he noticed that the waiter threw away the crayons his children had been colouring with.
Upon questioning the waiter, he discovered that every crayon put out on diners’ tables had to be thrown away after customers left — whether they’d been used down to a nub or left completely untouched.
And that was the beginning of The Crayon Initiative, a nonprofit organization that repurposes old unusable crayon wax into new crayons and distributes them to children’s hospitals in California. (more…)
Georgia Bradley was just enoying a day on a remote beach in Greece while her boyfriend was at a nearby cafe. However, her vacation took a turn when two men she didn’t know approached her.
The 25-year-old said they started harassing her, and once she rejected their advances, they became aggressive.
“I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink. I kept telling them I didn’t want to. Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.”
Suddenly, a small black dog ran over and began barking at the men. The attackers ran off, and the dog followed Bradley back to her apartment.
One-third of all food produced in the world goes to waste – a travesty when 795 million people still go to bed hungry and are malnourished.
One way the Basque town of Galdakao, Spain is remedying this crisis is by urging local citizens to put their leftovers in a refrigerator on the streets.
The city of about 30,000 people created the country’s first communal refrigerator to provide for the hungry. No questions asked and no judgment, it’s a way for those in need to receive, and for those with enough to give.
