A 5-year-old boy invited his entire kindergarten class to be witness his legal adoption. Michael Orlando Clark Jr., was officially adopted on Thursday and all his friends showed up to the Kent County Courthouse in Michigan to celebrate with him.
The Kent County’s Facebook page shared a photo from Clark’s hearing and it showed the boy, his parents and his classmates holding up heart signs.
Lisa Meilander was dining with her family at Eat’n Park diner in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, when she spotted an elderly man eating alone in a nearby table.
She shared the heartwarming gesture in a Facebook post:
“The elderly gentleman was seated in the booth directly across from my family as we ate dinner Saturday night at Eat’n Park in Belle Vernon. We really didn’t see him come in. But we did notice when our server, Dylan, dropped to one knee to look him eye-to-eye as he got ready to take his order.
Amazing video of an emotional reunion between a donkey and the little girl that raised him. The two have a beautiful embrace and the donkey has a very heartwarming reaction. Day, week, month and year made.
The images were posted on Facebook after someone came upon the scene on the street. At first the user “thought that the goose was going to attack the puppy after seeing it staying close to the puppy.”
The puppy appeared to be abandoned shortly after birth and was shivering terribly in the cold. According to the post, the goose did not hesitate to wrap its wings around the puppy and later stroked its head with its beak
In 2011, a retired bricklayer and part-time fisherman found a starving, oil-covered penguin lying on his local beach in southeastBrazil. Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, scooped up the bird and took him home. He cleaned the bird, fed him, and named him Dindim. When Dindim was strong enough, Pereira de Souza took him back to the sea.
But the bird wouldn’t go.
The Magellanic penguin stayed with Pereira de Souza for another 11 months at his home in Ilha Grande before finally returning to the ocean.
And then, a few months later, he was back.
Tommy the cat is a local stray in the neighborhood who found a family he could call his own.
“It’s more like he adopted us, to be honest,” sympson2612 shared on reddit. “He started hanging around our deck/yard this past Summer, and eventually we started feeding him. Next thing we know we got him his shots, got him neutered, and now he owns every piece of furniture and every person in this house. I think that was his evil plan all along…. We may have made a terrible mistake. ;)”
They decided to take Tommy in and right away the children fell in love, especially the family’s young son.
Whenever Tommy is getting ready to take a nap during the day, the tyke makes sure to tuck him in. This is his way of telling Tommy that he doesn’t have to worry anymore about being on the streets and that he has a loving home forever.
Cris Mamprim was working the night shift at Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Rio do Sul, Brazil, when a homeless man named César came in seeking treatment.
While César was getting treated for a preexisting condition, Mamprim noticed that a group of dogs had congregated outside the door, waiting for their friend to get released. And, as Mamprim noted on The Dodo, these dogs looked much better fed than your average stray animals.
