What started like any typical Friday evening quickly escalated to something much more traumatic for Cecilia Celis and her puppy Lulu. "We were inside making tacos, and we hear crying. We just hear them barking and crying, so we are like 'oh they're just play fighting' and a second later, I just look outside. We see a huge bird fly up, and I yell at the bird, 'get off my dog! Get off my dog!" Celis explains. Surveillance video from Celis'home shows her rushing outside to her two-pound Yorkie who was in the talons of a large bird, possibly a hawk. Lulu survived the bird attack without sustaining serious injuries. Brave Girl!

While the idea of killing our beloved canine companions for meat seems appalling to us, it's been a norm for particular cultures. There is a festival in China known as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, a week-long event that takes place every year. It is estimated that millions of dogs are killed for this festival. Marc Ching, an American activist, has made it his mission in life to rescue dogs from slaughterhouses. In the process, he has been beaten, threatened, and even detained by authorities. But Marc Ching is, thankfully, vigilant in seeing his goal through. 

All the dogs Marc Ching has rescued have been taken to shelters and to the foster care organizations to help find furr-ever homes for the cherished canines. Because of Ching's strong morals and constant action, he inspired activists around the globe and has brought awareness to what is happening. Thanks to Ching, fewer and fewer dogs are dying at the festival. 

You can read more about Marc Ching's cause on his non-profit Facebook page and how you can help! Thank you, Marc Ching, for being the voice for these beautiful pups.

On Sunday January 27th, Chicago police officers from the 20th District helped a man to safety after he attempted to save his dog from a frozen Lake Michigan. Below is a letter sent from the man who wishes to remains anonymous: "I took my recently adopted dog, Pika, to Lincoln Park by Foster beach Saturday afternoon. I've been visiting that beach and park in all weathers for years with my recently deceased dog, Bowser. This was Pika's first visit to the park, he is a 9 month old American Eskimo mix. He was very excited and got away from me, ran down to the beach, and then to the edge of the large ice ridges that form during cold winters. I saw him disappear over the ridge. I ran up and looked down six feet to see him paddling in freezing cold water. He is a 19 pound dog and I knew that he would soon die from cold or drowning. I jumped in after him. The water was only to my waist and I lifted him onto my shoulder. I placed Pika above me on the ice and tried to climb out. The ice walls were bulbous and smooth with no ridge I could place a foot on. I realized I would not be able to get myself out. My hands were numb and flipper-like at this point. It took me about 20 tries to get my phone out of my pocket. Thankfully, it was water resistant and I was able to call 911..."

A Special Greenhouse Cat Sanctuary In Canada Is a Home to Leukemia And FIV- Positive Cats

The Regional Animal Protection Society of Richmond, British Columbia (RAPS) is a truly special cat sanctuary in Canada that serves as a home for more than 500 unwanted and sick cats. The unique greenhouse in the sanctuary helps giving kitties the sunlight they crave for while allowing humans to spoil them with some TLC. According to their website: "It is now one of the largest cat sanctuaries in North America. The Sanctuary provides a safe permanent home to hundreds of feral, abandoned and surrendered cats. We are one of very few cat shelters that house leukemia and FIV-positive cats (neither disease affects humans or other animal species). These cats are housed in separate areas so that other cats are not exposed. In many shelters, a positive diagnosis would mean euthanasia. We ensure that they are loved and cared for during their lifetimes". For more, visit their instagram page
