Paralyzed Dog Running Again After Being Rescued

From being paralyzed to running, this is the story of Teddy Bear. 

He was rescued from a licensed breeder in Lancaster by Lakin Harmon. 7-9 years old, he was brought into Ludwigs Corner Veterinary Hospital in really bad condition - with both of his hind legs paralyzed and struggling to so much as urinate. But here we are today, after treatment, adoption, and weeks of companionship, and Teddy Bear is running again.

Get ready. Because this video has double the tiny and therefore double the cute. It's a video of itty bitty kittens meeting and hanging out with an itty bittier chicken. Yeah, we know, the cuteness is overwhelming just thinking about it. 

But you must watch this video with us, you can't not. There are only so many times in our lives where we could come across a friendship this precious. So, we are all going to take a deep breath and watch this video despite the fear of a cuteness overload, and we will appreciate this double-dose of cuteness together.

Oh, kittens... little balls of endless energy. Jumping around, running, curious about everything. How an energetic little creature like that turns into the most chill, lazy being is beyond us. And it's totally beyond this kitten's dad as well. 

He seems to understand though, letting his little kitten buzz around and be generally annoying and adorable. Or maybe he's just doing the cat thing and being totally unbothered by anything, including its own widdle kitten. Regardless, it's adorable, and we absolutely love both this kitten and its dad.

Fully cursed, a little sprinkle of blessed, and some in between - take in this concoction of cursed cat craziness. And when you get through this collection, may all the curses be lifted of your spirit and you blessed with the power of Cat.

Two Kittens Rescued From Car Engine Are Doing Purrfect

Not one but Two! Two happy rescue kitten stories by the same volunteer rescue group, and we are twice as happy. An adorable black kitten, now named Kevin, has been rescued from inside of a car engine in Ballymena. And the other kitten, a calico kitten beauty named Cotton, was rescued after getting trapped in an industrial site under a raised oil tank. Twice the rescued kittens, twice the good news, and twice the gratitude.

Heroes Of The Month: Celebrating Rescued Animals And Their Rescuers (November 2020)

Or tiny little animal friends have a tendency of getting themselves into trouble all the time. Pet owners and pet lovers alike know that. And though normally, it's little things like your cat getting its nail stuck in the curtains or your dogs getting its nose stuck somewhere because puepper just had to try to get that fly, sometimes, things get a lot more dangerous than that, and we have situations where animals truly need us to come to their rescue. 

Every single month, we cover as many stories as we can about these heroes- the people who put everything aside to save the little animals who've gotten themselves a bit too deep into the mud. And every single month, happily, there are too many stories to cover, so we make this little list for everyone, so that we can all give the most deserved appreciation to these heroes.

Kitten Found Frozen To Truck Tire Adopted By Man Who Saved It

Found in below freezing temperatures last month, Xerxes the kitten has officially been adopted by the good man who saved her! She was only five-weeks-old then, hanging off the side of one of the truck tires, with her tail and paws completely frozen to the metal surface, trapping her. 9NEWS reports that to free the kitten without causing her additional pain, the man who found her splashed warm water on the areas of the tire to which her pas and tail were stuck, gently removing her paws and tail from the tire.

The man brought the kitten to the Denver Dumb Friends League (DDFL), wrapped up in tiny blankets to keep her warm, where she received the care she needed as well as the name Xerxes. On Monday, after recovering, she has officially been adopted into the forever home of the man who saved her. "Before her adoption, Xerxes spent time in a foster home where her frostbitten paws recovered, and her initially frightened exterior began to crumble," DDFL recounted. "Healed and healthy, Xerxes is settling in with her new family."

They add that, without the help of the man who saved her, the kitten would have most likely not survived through the night. So, we can only be thankful, encourage others to help the little creatures in need that they come across, and thank every savior we hear about for doing the right thing.

Tiny Owl Rescued From Christmas Tree Is Set Free

A story truly fitting the Christmas cheer. A tiny little owl was found inside of a Christmas tree. Yup. Inside of the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree, workers discovered the tiny owl "clinging for its life to the 75-foot-tall Norway spruce". After surviving a 200 mile journey from Oneonta to Manhattan, the owl was found as the crews that were about to erect the tree were unwrapping it. 

The New York Post reports that strangely, though the bird is tiny and looks like a baby owlet, since owls are born in the spring, it was immediately understood that this owl is not actually a baby. She is a northern saw-whet, a bird that only grows to about 5 inches tall and 2 to 3 ounces in weight. "I thought it was such a heartwarming Christmas story, that there was this secret in the Christmas tree," said Ellen Kalish, the director and founder of Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in New York. 

Workers at the Rockefeller Center, after the New York Post reached out for a comment, said: "We inspect each branch of the tree individually before it's wrapped, but birds sometimes can find their way into it on the journey." For three whole days, the owl didn't have any food or water, but once in the hands of Kalish, she got all the mice she wanted. 

Today, in an update to the story, we found out that the little birdy has been set free at last to its natural habitat to continue her migratory journey. And though her journey was harrowing and incredibly long, she's gotten herself a little Christmas miracle in not only being found and rescued but also in making a full recovery and getting to continue her life in the wild as she was meant to. 

Check out pictures of the owl and her release below. And for another story of an incredibly feisty owl with singed wings getting rescued from a fire, click right here

Horse Rescued From Icy Mud Hole, Recovering Well

On Monday, Fysik, an 11-year-old retired jumping horse, sunk and got stuck up to his neck in a hole of freezing muddy water. "He was shivering and I just knew when I saw him that there was no way I was going to be able to get him out of that myself," his owner, the operator of Adorado Nino Horse Rescue and Sanctuary near Leduc, Alta, Tracy Benkendorf, told CBC news

Knowing that she couldn't do it alone, she called 911 and posted a picture of the horse on Facebook, asking if anyone knows what to do to help it. "I'm just absolutely beyond grateful for these people that came together in such an incredible, amazing way," she says about the firefighters, the RCMP, her neighbors, her veterinarian and some other people she didn't even know who arrived to help. 

Read more and see Fysik standing strong and covered in blankets below!
