Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Zeus, The Blind Owl

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Zeus, the blind owl! 

You've probably seen Zeus before, he went viral for his incredible peepers! Eyes that look as if they contain the whole universe and all the answers to the unknown. When we hear or think of a 'Wise Owl,' it's Zeus who we think of. Zeus may be blind but he sure has the most enchanting eyes.

Zeus is a Western Screech Owl with a great wingspan. On his Instagram, it is mentioned that he has about 10% of his vision, and is able to see shapes and memorize his immediate surroundings. He currently is being cared for at the Wildlife Learning Center in Los Angeles, California. The wildlife center's mission is to "provide public education that inspires people to care for our wildlife, to care for our environment, to develop a deep interest in the life sciences, and to give loving care and sanctuary to animals in need." 

Find out how you can help them accomplish their mission and how you can help Zeus. 

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Rex, The T-Rex Cat!

Stolen Pitbull Returned Home In Time For Christmas

If this isn't the definition of "Christmas Miracle" then don't know what is! Listen up Hollywood, THIS is the kind of movie we would love to see! 

This handsome Pit Bull, named Zeus, was stolen from his family a few months ago by a "supposed" friend.

Chelsea Staley, executive director of Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association, told WOWK 13 News, "Basically robbed her blind stole her wallet, a number of things while she was at work including her dog Zeus…the friend was apprehended in Nitro… and when he was arrested Zeus was still with him."

Thankfully, Zeus was microchipped and ended up at the West Virginia at the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association (which, by the way, is 2,000 miles away from home).

And since Pitbulls aren't allowed on commercial airlines, the group Many Paws Volunteer Transport set up a relay of volunteer drivers to get Zeus home for Christmas.

Fifteen drivers, nine states, four days. Zeus made it home in time for Christmas and the happy tears just keep coming! 

Thank you to all those who helped bring Zeus home!
