This is a story of the right person, in the right place, at the right time. Rock Hill real estate agent Casey Lawrence found the injured Pit Bull dumped in the woods after getting lost while showing a property. The dog was discarded and left to die after likely being used as a bait dog by dog fighters. He was surrounded by bones and animal carcasses!
Fortunately, Casey found the dog, now named Rambo, in time! She rushed Rambo to Baxter Veterinary Clinic. Rambo was covered with bite marks and lacerations and was severely injured, and his leg wounds infected with gangrene.
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.
It’s been hard for Mary and Roberto Westbrook’s three year-old son Luke to understand that the family dog will not be coming home.
At the age of 13, Moe the beagle passed away. One day, Luke asked his mom if he could write a letter to Moe. Doing so became a bit of a mother-and-son ritual. The usual message: “I miss you. Hope you’re having fun in doggie heaven.”
Charlie dog died of cancer 2 weeks ago. Scout kitty loved him more than anything.
The first night I brought her home at 5.5 weeks old, she couldn’t sleep unless she was nestled up to my doggy.
When this dying dog rescued from the streets of India was originally found he looked like a lost cause, as well as the saddest creature you’ve ever seen. The organization Animal Aid Unlimited came to the dog’s rescue just two-months ago in hopes of saving his life and making it worth living again.
When he was first found on the side of the road, the poor pup was starving, dehydrated, suffering from mange and had not experienced any human contact in a long time. A spokesperson for Animal Aid Unlimited said, “He was so exhausted and inward.”
As soon as the dog arrived at the rescue facility they hooked him up to an IV and began treating his many infections. It took 10 days for the dog’s skin to heal, at which point the real transformation began to take place.
The results of his transformation are unbelievable. To think this is the same dying dog rescued from the streets only two months before is not only shocking but also inspirational.
Meet Martin Studer, the world’s best postman. On his route, he encounters Pippa, a dog who must bring her family mail every single day.

A pet fox and dog have become unlikely best buddies – in one of the cutest animal friendships of all time.
There have been all sorts of bizarre animal bonds that have formed over the years, like this protective lion who adopted an antelope as a ‘cub’ for instance.
And then there was Bella the black Labrador and Bubbles the African elephant, among others.
But while pet fox Juniper and Moose the Australian Shepherd might not be quite as an extraordinary mix, their relationship is definitely one of the most heartwarming.
Moose was adopted by owner Jessika when he was young, and when she bought Juniper home as a five-week old pup the pair instantly bonded.
Now they have formed an enduring relationship, and just love spending time together.
Jessika absolutely adores the cuddly pairing. But she has made a point to warn others that keeping a fox is waaaay harder than having a dog or a cat, and extra special care has to be taken to keep them healthy.
Luckily, Moose an Juniper’s friendship is being documented through Jessika’s Instagram page for Juniper so you can keep an eye out for updates as to how they’re getting on in the future.
