Heartbroken Dog Who Lost Entire Litter Adopts Kittens, And Cares For Them

A heartbreaking tale with a happy ending. Sunshine Dog Rescue, a Non-Profit Organization located in Phoenix, Arizona, rescued a beautiful Australian Shepherd Mix named Georgia. 

Georgia was found living at a gas station near the border to Mexico. Georgia was pregnant, but sadly, none of her puppies made it. All her pups were born prematurely. 

Founder of the Sunshine Dog Rescue, Anita Osa, knew Georgia was heartbroken at the loss of losing all her babies. Osa told ABC15, "I've never had a mom dog lose a whole litter before. The best way I could describe it was she was frantic. It was so sad, she was looking for those babies. She tore up the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies." 

Osa quickly went to work and asked for help on Facebook. Osa was looking for any orphaned baby animals that were in need of a lactating mother. Osa ended up with three kittens who just so happened to fit that bill. 

Of course, with any interspecies integration, you have to worry about whether or not each animal would accept the other. Thankfully, Georgia and the kittens instantly bonded. Osa claims the moment Georgia sniffed the kittens, she calmed down significantly.

They do nurse on her. She cleans them and everything but the bond is strong. It's really something to see, she protects those kittens just as if they were her babies," Osa added. 

While we are heartbroken for the loss of Georgia's litter, we are grateful she found a family of her own with others who needed her. 

Check out the adorable videos of Georgia and her baby kittens below.

Not going to live, our hearts were beating out of our chest due to this dramatic unfolding! Talk about suspense! 

Out in blizzard, mother otter still has to eat and feed her cub, as well. While placing her cub in a location she will return to, the mama goes fishing. However, the little cub couldn't seem to sit still and decided to go back into the water, leaving the mother in a panic frenzy when she returns to find her cub gone. 

Thankfully, it all ends well and the pair are reunited by the end.

Make sure to always look both ways before crossing the road! A lesson this mama leopard knows quite well, and teaching her cubs to do so from the looks of things!

You can see her go out into the road, stop traffic, and then come back to safely take her cubs across. Now, that's a good mama. But, you know kids, they'll disobey and make a mess of things! This mama never leaves their side, though. 

What absolute cuties!

Endangered Gorilla Is Expecting 1st Baby In New Orleans' Zoo

What beautiful news! 

13-year-old Tumani is excepting her very first baby! The critically endangered gorilla, who currently resides at the New Orleans' zoo, is already being trained in preparation for the bundle of joy! Tumani has been given a "doll" to care for, but since a stuffed doll doesn't look anything like a gorilla, it could be easily torn apart. 

Instead, they come up with another idea. Audubon Zoo's chief veterinarian, Dr. Robert McLean, explained that they created a "rugged section of canvas firehose tubing has been woven roughly to the proportions and weight of a 4-pound newborn gorilla."

"I haven't seen it myself, McLean continued. "Apparently it's pretty ugly but it does the job."

Tumani is a western lowland gorilla. In 2016, there was only an estimate of 362,000 in the wild, and that number falls about 2.7% a year. And according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, by 2082, those numbers might plummet to 80%. 

Unfortunately, due to diseases, such as Ebola, habitat loss, and illegal hunting, their population is plummeting quickly. 

And all the more reason to celebrate Tumani and her baby to be. We wish this mama a healthy delivery and a healthy baby!

Lera, the Maine Coon, had kittens back at the end of 2017, and sometimes, we like to just watch simple videos such as this one. 

A simple video of a mom and her babies, two minutes of purity and simplicity. Who needs more than that? 

This mama is carefully watching her playful kittens, and talking with them. How we wish we could understand, but we do know whatever she is saying, it's coming from a place of love.

This group of puppies, in pup-ticular, are just too cute!

Learning to swim is at first very scary stuff, but you just got to go for it and take that plunge! Of course, with someone to supervise you and in this case, there were a few supervisors! Some hoomans and a very proud mama lab! 

Watch these puppies take on swimming for the very first time! They all did so well!

There's nothing like a mother's love. 

These 22-days-old baby bunnies just wanted to feel that love even if it means laying next to Bailey, the adorable golden retriever, and adopting him as their mom. 

We're melting.

This poor baby dolphin got caught in a fisherman's deadly net, around the Italian island of Procida, Naples, as the mother helplessly didn't leave its side. Luckily,  the baby dolphin was freed by a kind fisherman, who happened to be there, and the mother celebrated her baby's freedom by jumping for joy! 

It is physically impossible not to smile when she's the mother's reaction!

You might remember a video we recently shared featuring a limping mother who leads a man into the bushes to where her kittens were. This is the same mother and kittens and their story continues! Here you can see the 5 extremely hyperactive kittens playing and running around like man while their loving mother is being very, very patient with them. As the kittens fight with each other, mama cat seems to just be waiting for them to tire themselves out and settle down. 

All we know is that we love this family.
