Officer Rescues Kitten From The Highway

Poor little kitten must have been absolutely terrified! 

Thankfully, Officer Jason Smith of the North Kansas City Police Department, in Missouri, was on duty when the call came in! A 3-month-old kitten was stuck on the side of the highway.

When Officer Smith was driving and searching for the whereabouts of the cat, he all of a sudden spotted the little ball of fur up on the center divider, with a toy glove behind her.

Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi Collaboration With Animal Shelter Results In All Dogs Being Adopted

Last week, Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl and their defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi, celebrated by paying over 100 adoption fees at the KC Pet Project Animal Shelter.

It is now officially confirmed at EVERY dog that the KC Pet Project has been adopted! 

But there are still plenty more places to adopt from and new pups coming in all the time. 

KC Pet Project shared an image of the empty kennels that were once filled with pups, along with this heartwarming message:

"The best sight we love to see. Because of Derrick Nnadi's generous sponsorship, our Petco Adoption Center has no more dogs to adopt. Every kennel is empty tonight - how wonderful! We still have a few sponsored dogs at our Zona Rosa Adoption Center, Campus, and in foster homes, and you can see them all at www.kcpetproject.org, along with new adoptables. Yay for so many lives saved!"

Thank you, Derrick Nnadi and KC Pet Project for the awesome collaboration. And a heartfelt thank you to all those who adopted! 

You guys are the everyday heroes!

Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi Covers Over 100 Adoption Fees

With great power comes great responsibility! 

And one man used that power in an amazing way this past Sunday! Derrick Nnadi, the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, has celebrated his Super Bowl win by covering adoption fees for more than 100 dogs at the KC Pet Project animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri.

How amazing is that?! 

Adoption fees usually run about $150, per dog. And apparently, Nnadi had been paying off adoption fees all season long! Each time the Chiefs would win a game, he would pay another dog's adoption fee through the Derrick Nnadi Foundation.

The fee waiver will cover the cost of any dog that became available for adoption before February 2.

Why spend that money on adoption fees? Well, Nnadi told CNN that he wasn't allowed any pets growing up. During his senior year of college, he decided to get a dog named Rocky and they created an instant bond. 

Nnadi said, "When I first got him, he was very timid. It made me think of how other animals, whether they're owned or in a shelter, are feeling scared and alone."

KC Pet Project chief communications officer, Tori Fugate, told CNN that Nnadi's donation had been"incredible."

"More than 100 available dogs in our care will have their adoption fees sponsored starting today," Fugate said of Nnadi's donation.

Its adoptable animals can be found here

Way to go, Derrick Nnadi! If anyone wasn't a fan before --they will be now!

Cartoon-Eyed Husky Finds Forever Home

Meet Jubilee, the husky who was rejected by breeders because she looked "weird," according to the rescue organization Husky House

Jubilee is a Siberian husky with a unique and unforgettable bug-eyed stare -- which has since made her viral! Reddit user, u/critterwalk, share Jubilee's picture with the Reddit community, with the title, "This is Jubilee. She just happens to look like bad taxidermy."

Thanks to her cartoon-ish eyes, Jubilee was made into an internet star overnight! 

Before her stardom, it was difficult to find someone to take Jubilee home with them, her caretakers at Husky House wrote in a Facebook post in her voice:

"Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them,I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog."

If that doesn't hit you right in the feels, you might want to go to a doctor to make sure you're human. 

Thanks to Jubilee's sudden stardom, her adorable face was being shared countless times and finally landed her a forever home!

WE'RE CRYING AND WE DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS IT. 

After 500 days of waiting for a forever home, this shelter dog finally gets to walk the walk of freedom! And to commemorate the beautiful moment, the Niagara SPCA animal shelter in Niagara Falls, New York, threw the six-year-old pup named Bonita the ultimate parade!

The moment was filmed and you can see Bonita leaping with joy and giving kisses to the bystanders as she finally leaves the shelter and onto her forever home! 

Bonita was the oldest guest at the shelter, having arrived August 13, 2008 and finally being adopted December 12th, 2019. 

We're so happy that Bonita will get the start the new year in a new and loving home!
