National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: Dogs in Denver Enjoyed Free Makeovers

In celebration of National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and some news of their own, Rover treated a group of lucky pups from Maxfund, an animal adoption center in Denver, to stylish free makeovers — complete with before-and-after glamour shots taken by Wag Your Tail Photography

The generous gesture was part of Rover's celebration of adding new grooming services to their website. The new service allows Pet owners to skip the stressful process of hauling their stressed pet to the groomers, and instead opt for a professional to come to their home, set up their pop-up salon and clean up any mess before they leave – all in a space where a pet feels safe. All of Rover's grooming options include a cut, bath, brush out, ear cleaning, nail trimming, and gland expression. Prices for the service vary based on the pet's breed and size.

Today Is Feral Cat Day: 4 Ways To Help Them During Winter

Feral Cat Day is celebrated every year on October 16th to remind us of our love of the furry-little devils, and how every stray cat has within them a loving cuddle-able furball looking for a forever home.

In August of 2001, Alley Cat Allies celebrated its 10th anniversary and launched the first annual Feral Cat Day to promote raising awareness about feral cat colonies and how to care for and prevent them. Alley Cat Allies is a strong supporter of the 'Trap-Neuter-Return' policy, where stray cats are captured and brought in to local volunteer veterinarians to be neutered and returned to the streets. This allows the cats to live out their lives on the streets, without creating more kittens to perpetuate the problem.

Feral Cat Day is best celebrated by alerting people of the various issues facing stray cats. 

One of these issues is the cold winter months. For feral cats, this time of year is no winter wonderland. Winter temperatures stress outdoor pets and take a toll on homeless animals. These cats need our help, especially during the cold season.

Photos From The Zoo: Baby Koala Wearing a Cast After Falling From a Tree

Aww. Let's try that again — Awwwwww.

At 150 days old and less than 500 grams, This tiny orphaned koala looks breathtakingly small. Actually, she should have still been in her mother's pouch but she was brought to Werribee Open Range Zoo by a wildlife carer three weeks ago after she fell from a tree in a Blue-gum plantation area. Sadly, her mom didn't survive and an external veterinarian had already made the difficult decision to euthanize her. 

According to National Geographic, female koalas carry their offspring inside their pouches for up to six months, but because of the unfortunate circumstances, this female joey does not have that privilege.

The baby koala is now recovering well but will it will take a year of careful monitoring before hopefully being returned to the wild.
