Owner Tries To Euthanized His Overweight Golden Retriever, Now The Dog Has A New Home And Lost Over 100lbs!

Shame on this dogs previous owner for trying to get the vets to put him down -- just because he was overweight! Truly disgusting.

Thankfully, when the previous owner brought the golden retriever, named Kai, to the vet, the vet immediately contacted the Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue, which helped put Pam Heggie together with Kai. Their goal was to help Kai lose that dangerous weight and find him a home where Kai would be given the TLC he so clearly deserves.  

Heggie, his new foster mother, has told Good Morning America that she didn't know much about Kai and his past, but knew he needed help. The vet told Heggie that Kai was the most overweight animal she has ever seen, and that "anything you do is gonna help that dog."

Kai first weighed a whopping 172 pounds before Heggie stepped in and helped him lose more than half of his body weight!

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.

Many of these dogs come from abusive situations and are unadoptable due to their extreme fear of humans and resulting behavior problems. Through patience and lots of love, most of the dogs involved in this program improve significantly and can eventually be adopted to a caring home.

This Orphaned Raccoon Thinks She's Just Another Dog in Her New Family

Pumpkin lives in Nassau, Bahamas with her adopted mom Rosie Kemp, her husband and two dogs. According to The Dodo she fell from a tree into Rosie's backyard and her mother never came to claim her. In Nassau there are no raccoon rescues and raccoons are legal to own so Rosie took her in and raised her as part of the family.

Luckily this 'donated' puppy was found and cared for. This brand new baby Pitbull was taken to an animal hospital right away by the volunteers who found it and adopted shortly after.
