Badly injured in his eye and scared of humans, this adorable pooch finally got the break that he deserved. It took him days of doing nothing but sleep to get used to his new space, but eventually, he realized that he's safe. 


He has been taken in by people so caring who spent their time nursing him back to health, another dog who helped bring him out of his shell, and eventually, those same people found him the kind of forever home that makes him the happiest in the world. So happy, he runs toward them and non-stop wiggles in their arms. It's a happy-ending story that'll make anyone who sees it happy!

Rescued Lost And Injured Bear Cub Will Be Released Into The Wild After Winter

An injured and lost bear cub was rescued this week by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The female cub was wondering around for days in the Electra Lake area, getting into the bird feeders. The poor cub had cut injuries on her paws. And though there's no way of knowing exactly what happened to her, it is assumed that she is one of the survivors from the fires who got lost and couldn't find her way back to her family. Regardless, we are happy to hear that the cub is now in good hands, is being taken care of by capable people, and will be released back into the wild once she'll be healed. 

As reported by The Journal, Joe Lewandowski, a CPW spokesman, said in an email to The Durango Herald: "It had been getting into bird feeders in the area... It's not unusual for bears to go on walkabouts occasionally during the winter," Lewandowski added. "But they usually find a way back to their dens. This one didn't."

According to an official Facebook post, wildlife officials decided that the best course of action for the cub is to be taken into the Frisco Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center where the "staff will further evaluate and treat its injuries. The young bear will spend the rest of its' hibernation at the facility and be released back into the wild in the spring."

We are so happy to hear that the sweet cub is getting the help that she needs and that she will be released back into the wild. We wish her a quick and easy recovery and thank everyone involved in helping her!

Well Taken Care Of Animals With Little Casts

Getting injured is a scary thing for everyone- humans and animals alike, but sometimes, accidents happen. And though getting a cast put on may be a little scary in and of itself, we know it's for our own good. 

It's hard to say whether these animals know the same thing, but we hope they do. We hope they understand that we're only doing these things to protect them. One thing is for sure, we know for sure that they are the bravest, most courageous little things, and since we know they're going through a tough time, we will give them all the treats and all the love they may ever need. 

Starting right here. Get well soon, little guys.

From Animal Advocacy's Facebook page:

Some time ago Panchita was caught up in a net, which left deep cuts all over her body. She managed to make it to this hotel where animal advocates nursed her back to health for 3 months. Every day she returns to rest after being out to sea. She is now pregnant and expecting within a month.

Panchita, you definitely deserve some R&R after your struggles!

A kitteh named Sugar survived a 19-story fall from her owner's Boston apartment.

Sugar landed on a small patch of mulch, which helped lessen the impact of the fall. Animal Rescue League of Boston assistant manager Mike Brammer said Sugar's "flying-squirrel"-like ability to glide also helped her survive the harrowing ordeal.

Sugar's hoomin, Brittney Kirk, who was tracked down via a microchip implanted in her cat, says she left the window open so that Sugar wouldn't get too hot. "[I]f there were a cat to fall 19 stories and to be fine, I think it would definitely be Sugar, because she's a pretty special cat," she said.

Special, indeed! Thank goodness kittehs have nine lives!
