Costa, a homeless Brazilian man, ended up in the hospital after being attacked by some street thugs. While his injuries were being treated, doctors discovered he had melanoma. This meant he’d have to stay for a couple of weeks in the hospital while receiving treatment, which was a huge problem for Costa because he didn’t live on the streets by himself. He lived with Seco, his loving dog. As he underwent skin cancer treatment, his best friend waited outside in the parking lot for days on end. Since hospital rules do not permit animals to enter, hospital staff provided food [More]

These guys really are hometown heroes! Thank goodness someone notified the authorities. If [More]

The birds were 90 percent accurate in one experiment and 99 percent in another. [More]

That being said, the fact that moms are not to be messed with when their babies are involved is something that spans across species. One snake learned that the hard way after trying to eat this baby rat. Somebody [More]
Shoveling snow sure is a big pain in the butt. Most people would love to avoid shoveling altogether, and some go so far as to pay people to do it for them. That’s why these pups decided to lend their favorite humans a helping paw. Even if their efforts weren’t exactly helpful, the gesture certainly didn’t go unnoticed! Well, at least they tried to help. It’s really the thought that counts. But puppies…listen…maybe it’d be better if you all just stayed inside and prepared to greet your frozen humans with kisses instead.
