Best News Stories Of 2019: Animal Edition (Illustrations)

As 2019 quickly draws to a close, illustrator Mauro Gatti is highlighting the best news stories of the year and sharing them on the site, 'The Happy Broadcast.'

As written in the 'About' section, Gatti writes why 'The Happy Broadcast' was created, "I'm honestly fed up with all the bad news everywhere. I am not a journalist or an influencer, but I want to use my art to spread some positivity. I want to create something positive as an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media. That's why I illustrate and share positive news from around the world in the hope that it brings you some happiness and inspires you to spread some good news yourself!"

We're definitely feeling that positivity, Gatti! 

Here are some of the best animal stories of 2019, to see ALL the best news stories -- check out the website or Instagram

Another story that truly shows the importance of micro-chipping your beloved pets! 

11 years ago, in New York, Maggie Welz lost her beloved feline, Tiger. 

Fast-forward to today, that same Tiger was rescued and brought in by the Dutchess County SPCA, where they discovered he was micro-chipped! According to SPCA officials, it took staff member Carol O'Connell three years to get close enough to the missing feline that had been coming by her home every now and then.

O'Connell told Eyewitness News, "Each year he came to my house, he deteriorated more and more each year, and that's when I realized either somebody just abandoned him or he just was missing or lost or he was just a feral cat. This spring he started to come around a little bit more in the mornings so I started to work harder to try to gain his trust." 

Seems like he knew who to turn to for some help.

SPCA officials said they she borrowed a scanner from the shelter to check if he was micro-chipped on a whim. With the information they were able to locate Maggie Welz and finally reunite her with her Tiger!

Retired Nurse Turns Her Home To a Hospice To Ensure Dying Dogs Will Have The Ending They Deserve

The Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project is a heart-warming project of Nicola Harrison, a former volunteer at a kennel who decided to turn her home in Mansfield, UK, to a dog hospice where she provides end of life care for abandoned and terminally-ill dogs who have less than six months to live. This way she ensures dying dogs are living out their final days as happy and loved as possible. In an interview with Metro, Harrison said she makes them each a bucket list, throws them a birthday party, takes them out for steak dinners and more: "We take them down to the local pub – it's really dog-friendly, and they'll get a steak dinner too. Many have not led a very nice life too, used for breeding or guard dogs, so when they've become unwell, they're not useful anymore and left". She also said that she spends up to $500 on each dog to give them the best there is in life for the short amount of time they have left. Here are some of the heart-warming photos we have found on her facebook page. All we can say is that it's truly inspirational and the world needs more people of this kind.
