Army Veteran Voluntarily Flies Dogs To New Homes

It's Up, Up and to forever homes for these animals! All thanks to army veteran Paul Steklenski. Steklenski, Schwenlesville, Pennsylvania is your average joe. The army vet, now and in IT, had spent most of the 90's as leading officer training at Fort Knox, Kentucky. In 2013, he decided to take up and hobby. He decided he wanted to learn to fly. And because of this hobby, Paul was later on to do something he was passionate about... rescue animals.

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!
