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/

Luckily for the little guy, the amazing people at Vet Ranch took him in and gave him the surgery he so desperately needed.

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.

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]
Our friends at Hope For Paws recently got a call about a small dog living in an industrial area. They were told the dog was covered in filth and was too scared to let anyone near him.

As they got closer, they found out that this dog being scared of people was no joke. The terrified little guy ran around but eventually hid in a bush when he became too tired. You’ll want to see [More]
SPAZ, a Greek rescue organization, was alerted that a very sick stray dog was near Athens, Greece. The shepherd most likely was a sheep dog at one point, but now he was sick and struggling to survive on his own. It took a while to locate the dog once they arrived. When they saw him, their hearts broke. The dog was extremely fearful and refused to let the humans get close. Because of this, the rescuers had to lace food with tranquilizer. After an hour of tracking the dog, he finally laid down. Although he was still terrified, he didn’t [More]
If you’re a dog owner, you would do just about anything for your little pup. There is no mountain high enough, valley low enough, or river wide enough to keep you from staying with your pooch through thick and thin. And these people take that notion quite literally. When you see them rescuing dogs from dangerous situations, you’ll be astounded by the number of risks they take for our canine companions. Thank goodness people like this exist in the world! Because without them, these dogs might not have made it out alive. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dog-save/
Over the last few months, floods have been a deadly, though common, occurrence throughout India. Already killing at least 70 people, they’ve proven deadly to man, and if it weren’t for the courage of one mother dog, several puppies would have perished, too.

(via Metro) Watching from above, the onlookers no doubt wished they could have helped this mom. But after she helped her first little one, they could tell [More]
Holly is only five weeks old, but she’s already experienced a lifetime of pain. When she was brought into a North Carolina animal control shelter with her mother, she had a broken leg that needed to be fixed immediately. It was either that or she would be euthanized. But as is common with some rescue centers, the shelter was out of emergency funds. Luckily, Adopt an Angel was willing to help. She was rushed to the vet but unfortunately, there was nothing the doctors could do for her leg. It was immediately amputated. But that’s not where the poor girl’s [More]
