A Woman Converted Her Garage to Make a Cat Rescue Shelter Organization

We are so used to hearing about rescue animal shelters and their facilities. But here's one we don't think you've ever heard of. A cat and kitten rescue shelter organization... out of someone's garage! And it's all thanks to Marilyn Harely from Maine who decided to do something… a bit unconventional.

Harley recently gave an open house tour of the newly remodeled Another Chance Rescue facility right out of her garage! The facility is located in Sanford, Maine and lets' just say, many were enthusiastic about the upgraded cat rescue center that once used to be a garage. A place where she once used to park her car,  Harely decided that cats and kittens were in need of warmth and shelter. Now, you might think that she finds kittens and cats homeless on the streets and takes them in, but actually Another Chance Rescue takes in surrendered cats and those from kills shelters in other states. The cats receive veterinary care and then are put up for adoption. Some get adopted quickly while others stay for a little while longer. But one thing is for certain, this is a no-kill facility!

These Two Women Are Saving Dogs Using Applied... Economics!?

At an early age of 17 years old, Christine L. Exley saved the life of her"wiggly-butt Pit Bull", Pepper. How? Well...while volunteering at a local shelter, she learned that if no one would adopt Pepper soon, she will have to be put down. So Christine did the only thing she could think of, since she was only 17 and couldn't legally adopt Pepper...

Animal Shelter Writes Hilarious Adoption Ad For A Very Naughty Cat

Mr. Biggles is a very naughty cat from Melbourne, Australia, who has risen in fame on the Internet for basically being terrible. A local adoption company wrote a personal and very honest ad for Mr. Biggles because they want him to find a permanent home. In this case, We're not sure someone will be brave enough to adopt "an utter utter utter bastard. He looks gorgeous with his slinky shiny black fur and big yellow eyes... but beware. If he doesn't like what you're doing he will give you a nip! Sometimes he likes to swipe at your feet too. It just depends on what he can reach at the time".

You can read the hilarious full ad Here.

Etobicoke Human Society, a Toronto- based animal shelter, was given 10 Duktig beds meant for dolls, but widely known to be a feline favorite. On a thank you post shared on facebook, the owners wrote: "A HUGE thanks to IKEA Canada for donating these adorable doll beds. Now the cats are elevated off the cold, hard floor. Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in".

So thank you, IKEA, from us as well!
