San Francisco police tried for hours to talk a suspected car thief out of jumping from a third-floor window of a building. When they realized that a family member had brought the man's cat to the scene they used the pet to assist in calming him down.
via @CHPSanFranciscoThe love of his pet brought him to his senses and out of a crisis.
This adorable little guy wandered into the midst of a cow family who started to care for him as one of their own. The farmers who owned the cows named him Johann.
The cows lick him clean and let him snuggle with them just like they would a baby of their own species.
When media caught on to this wild pig's foster situation the attention got to be too much for him and he relocated with a new group of cows in a different meadow nearby. Amazingly, his new foster family accepted him as well and now he happily forages for bugs and acorns near his new grass-eating moms.
Finally, Lil Bub is close to dropping her debut album, Science & Magic. 25% of the net proceeds from the sales of this album will go to Lil Bub's Big Fund which helps the ASPCA grant funds to help special needs pets.

Gabe the Golden Retriever was introduced to Justin Lansford by the Warrior Canine Connection after an injury that resulted in the loss of his leg while stationed in Afghanistan.
Since then, the two have been inseparable. As Justin's new wife Carol told The Dodo, "They are pretty much joined at the hip."
When it was time to decide who would stand by Justin's side as Best Man in their wedding ceremony Gabe was the clear winner.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Saskatchewan ended up arresting a goat when the unruly cafe guest refused to leave a local Tim Hortons. Restaurant workers told police they tried to shoo him away but he just kept walking back inside. The goat had escaped from the University of Saskatchewan Rodeo and was probably just looking for a warm place to sleep. Fortunately the goat was returned to his owner and didn't have to spend a night in the slammer.
