The critically injured dog was lying lifeless on the floor when they found him, seemingly just wanting to die. It took nine weeks of daily bandaging and care to treat the maggot-infested wound on the poor pooch’s head, but as you can see at the end, he made an amazing recovery and is now loving life.

When the wonderful people at Animal Aid Unlimited found her, her head was huge. It was so swollen that it looked like a balloon. They can’t be sure why, but she had a string around her neck that was tied extremely tight. It was slowly choking her to death. They brought her back to their sanctuary and quickly got to work.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); The Earth is changing and rising temperatures are responsible for more and more car-related deaths each year. Two men at a local Michigan shopping center were quick to recognize an all-too familiar sight in a nearby parked car. Trapped inside the blue sports car were two small dogs. They were left helpless in the nearly 100 degree heat without so much a cracked window or a drink of water. After a failed attempt at shattering the window, one of the men tried again using a golf club. With mall security watching, the man was finally able [More]
Sometimes medicine can only do so much, and what a pup really needs to get better is some tender loving care. That’s what one technician at the Baltimore Animal Rescue Care Shelter realized when a beautiful girl named Sokka came out of surgery. Nobody thought she would even survive. After her family had ignored a bloated belly for far too long, the eight-year-old lab was luckily rushed to the clinic with a badly infected uterus. When the infection was removed, the mass weighed more than six pounds. But she wasn’t out of the woods yet. To keep her comforted while [More]
When you meet Minnie the dog, a few words immediately come to mind: gentle, affectionate, cuddly, friendly, and playful. But that wasn’t always the case. When she was found by the side of a dirty road, “scared” was the best adjective to describe her. When animal rescue organization Howl Of A Dog came across Minnie, she was quite hesitant to trust anyone. Luckily, it didn’t take too long for them to gain her trust and get her the help she needed from a vet. What they discovered at the animal hospital, though, crushed my heart…but don’t worry, there’s a happy [More]
Sadly, many people see a feral, aggressive dog and immediately want to put them down. With nearly 4 million pups entering shelters every year, it’s hard to think about all those pets who aren’t given a second chance like Billie Jean was. When No Kill Kern got a notice about this poor girl, she was terrified and aggressive towards humans. But after just a few days of working with trainers, Billie Jean’s true colors began to shine. But her story didn’t end there — watch to find out what they discovered when she took a trip to the vet! Thank [More]
When this stray dog was found wandering the streets of Athens, Greece, she had such horrific mange that it was as if she was turning to rock. Her rescuers decided to call her Petra, meaning stone in Greek, and after months of love and care, she was transformed into a totally new dog. Petra’s journey from near death to full of life is nothing short of incredible. If I had been shown a picture of Petra before her rescue and one from now, I’d not have believed it was the same dog. What a mind-blowing transformation! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/petra-dog-rescue/
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Depending on how you look at him, you could say that this adorable little dog walks like a human, like a T-Rex, or like a kangaroo. Crest, a precious rescue dog, was scheduled to be euthanized due to the fact that he had no mobility in his front legs. Luckily for the little guy, the amazing people at Vet Ranch took him in and gave him the surgery he so desperately needed. Now that he’s healing, they hope that Crest will be adopted into a loving home to get the affection he deserves. What a strong [More]
When Hope For Paws received a call about a homeless poodle who’d been living under a home for five months, they knew their task of rescuing him wouldn’t be easy. As you can imagine, life on the streets was rough and had caused the poor boy to become aggressive and fearful of humans — even those who were trying to help him. After two hours and tons of patience, Eldad and his friend Lisa managed to get a lucky leash on scared little Scotty. You’re not going to believe his almost immediate transformation! Look how happy he is! YouTube Please [More]
The Ringstaff family motto is simple. As they say, “We can’t save the world, but we can do something about the one in front of us,” so when the caring crew saw a large dog lying by the side of the road, they immediately turned around to help. They thought that the dog had been hit by a car, but he was actually fine. He was, however, lying next to another dog that had sadly been killed. Based on his body language, they determined that this brave guy was grieving the loss of his friend. The family couldn’t get the [More]
