This adorable and patient rescue loves hanging out with her human and wearing silly costumes. Take a look!
Florida firefighters rescued this adorable baby bear and gave him a very fitting name: Smokey Junior.
Smokey's mom wasn't near by so she's now in the care of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. They believe they might have found her mother and the two will be reunited soon!
This adorable stray puppy needed surgery before she was ready to be adopted. Lucky for her, a very kind surgical assistant was there to comfort her as she was waking up. The original post by BARCS Animal Shelter explains what happened in this sweet video:
Baby Meesha was coming off her anesthesia and was a little scared because her body felt so weird. BARCS Surgical Assistant Dennis Moses took her out into the quiet hallway to comfort her. One of our awesome volunteers just happened to be walking by to capture this sweet moment. Thank you to Dennis and all the staff who work long, tireless hours in the background of our shelter—saving lives and loving the animals. (Turn on the sound, it will melt your heart!)
They also included a follow up post showing Meesha happily snuggling with her new family.

If you love horses and you'd like to have one of your own the US Army has a few they'd like to give away for free. These horses were once caisson horses, they pulled coffins to burials at Arlington Cemetery. However, there comes a time in every caisson horses life when it's time to retire.
The application for adoption is extensive in order to vet the hopeful new owner for their ability to care for the horse. That means these horses will end up in good hands and can spend the rest of their lives enjoying retirement.
Quasimodo has Short Spine Syndrome, a very rare condition among dogs. It's exactly what it sounds like, he was born with a spine that's shorter than a normal dog because he is missing some vertebra.
His condition doesn't cause him pain but he does need special medical attention for other health conditions. He's been getting lots of love from foster homes since being rescued. Now that he's in the care of Second Hand Hounds he's managed to bring some much needed attention to the organization that rescues dogs (and cats) in dire need and places them in foster homes.
