U.S. Coast Guard Rescue Poor And Exhausted Pup Struggling In The Water

Thank you, U.S. Coast Guard for being there and caring for all living things! 

Off the coast of Florida, the crew stationed at Fort Byers received a call of a pup in distress and jumped into action! 

In a dramatic video, shared on the U.S. Coast Guard Twitter page, you see the boat carefully pull up alongside the stranded pup who is struggling to stay above water. The crew was able to reel the dog onto their boat and delivery the pooch back to shore -- and back to the owner.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Umora, The Wild Sable

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Umora, the wild sable

Umora was saved from a farm intended to kill and turn her fur into articles of clothing. She was saved by Zhenya, a Russian woman, who happened to find a picture of a wild sable online and feel immediately in love with the animal. She knew she had to save it. When Zhenya discovered there was an opportunity to buy the sable out of the fur farm, she jumped on the chance. 

And while Umora did come from a traumatic background, living on that fur farm, she's slowly overcoming her fear. 

According to Zhenya, Umora is often quite emotional, and even a tad hysterical, due to her life in the fur farm. Umora is also very clever and active, and she will steal your stuff -- because stealing is fun! 

And with time and patience, Zhenya and Umora are living life to the fullest. You can follow their adventure on Instagram!

Woman Cares For Abandoned Kitten, Turns Out To Be A Baby Puma Jaguarundi

Florencia Lobo, and her brother, came across what appeared to be two kittens next to a dead adult cat near Santa Rosa de Leales, in Tucuman province, Argentina. 

The siblings decided to take the two kittens home with them, in order to give them the best chance at survival. Sadly, one of the kittens, a female, was simply too weak and didn't survive. The other kitten, a male, was seemingly stronger and was in good health. Lobo named him Tito. At the two-month mark, Lobo decided to bring Tito into the vet for a routine check-up.

Turns out, the cat she's been snuggling up to for that past two months was no ordinary cat. 

In an interview with Rueters, Florencia Lobo said, "We thought that it was an abandoned cat who had given birth. The vet didn't know what it was but said it was not a normal cat and gave me the number of the reserve." 

Lobo contacted the Horco Molle nature reserve, who then confirmed that her kitten she's been nursing was in fact a Puma Jaguarundi. Puma jaguarundi is a small wildcat native to American territories from Arizona to Argentina. 

Tito is now being cared for at the reserve and will be returned to his natural habitat when fully prepared to make the transition.

Blind Bison Makes First Friend After Years Of Solitude

A blind bison named Helen has been roaming the fields of Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for years, all alone. This was due to the fact that Helen had nervous disposition, she purposely would separate herself from other animals. 

Until now. Oliver, a young Jersey calf has fought his way into Helen's heart with his gentle and kind manner. Since being introduced to Oliver, Helen and Oliver have been inseparable. They do everything together, so much so, that Oliver's fur has even changed in shade to match Helens!

Gwen Jakubisin, at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, told USA Today, "The change in [Helen's] demeanor is incredible, her joy is palpable."

With around 250 farm animals currently at the sanctuary, Helen has slowly started to reach other to other animals and is extending her social circle -- all thanks to her new courageous friendship with Oliver. 

Helen has also become something of a surrogate mum for Oliver. Jakubisin said, "Betsy (Oliver's mom) usually drops Oliver off at "daycare" and roams around while Helen watches over him for the rest of day, and she's cool with that. I catch them grooming each other, which is amazing because I don't think Helen has ever had that opportunity to express that motherly instinct before." 

We all need love. No matter what shape or form it comes in. And Helen and Oliver is simply further proof of that. 

Here's to you, Helen and Oliver! We adore your unlikely friendship and have learned from it.

Abandoned Newborn Giraffe And A Guard Dog Become Best Friends

Friendships have no boundaries, not even among different species. 

An abandoned newborn giraffe, named Jazz, was in a dire situation when he was first rescued a week ago by wildlife workers in South Africa.

But thankfully, Jazz was pulled out of a coma and is on the road to recovery -- all thanks to his new best friend friend Hunter, a guard dog at the wildlife rehab center. Under the attentive licks of Hunter, Jazz has been able to to gain back strength. 

According to a Facebook post by The Rhino Orphanage, Hunter is equally taken with Jazz, as Jazz is with him. Hunter, who also assists in anti-poaching efforts has reportedly, "fallen head over heels" for Jazz.  

"Just when we thought it couldn't get any cuter, sweeter and more heart-warming, this happened," the center wrote about a video (shared below) of the pair nuzzling each other, adding that the bond between the animals is "astonishing."

Hunter, is a Belgian Malinois, and "stays in the room all day with Jazz."Hunter doesn't even allow his brother Duke to come close to Jazz, according to the center. Hunter was so upset when Jazz was in a coma that he "didn't want to eat."

We're happy Jazz and Hunter have each other.

Story Of A Bat Named Lil' Drac Told Through Gifs

Say "hello" to the cutest little short-tailed fruit bat named Lil' Drac! Lil' Drac is an orphan that is being hand-raised by Bat World Sanctuary.  

Bat World Sanctuary rescues hundreds of mistreated bats every year. It is a non-profit, accredited organization that gives lifetime sanctuary to non-releasable bats, including those that are labeled orphan, injured, and retired from exotic pet trades, zoos and even research facilities.

Lil' Drac's mother was sadly another casualty from zoo closure happening across the US. His mother was young, stressed from the conditions in which she was being kept, trauma of being captured and transferred to an unfamiliar environment. Due to all this, she abandoned Lil' Drac right after he was born. Lil' Drac was found "on the padded floor of the indoor flight enclosure at Bat World Sanctuary, curled up in a little ball."

For all of their bat updates, photos and more, check out their Facebook BatWorld.

Also, Lil' Drac now has a book, for all you bat lovers out there!

There's a real life Ace Ventura Pet Detective in Shanghai, Asia, and he's incredible at this job! 

Meet Private sleuth Sun Jinrong, a real-life pet detective who gets the job done, and unlike Jim Carey's Ventura -- does so without the goofiness. 

Though, we are quite fond of the goofiness. 

Anyways, Jinrong is being dubbed as the nation's FIRST pet detective! Apparently, he is completely stoney-faced but adores animals so much that he solves only animal-related cases. 7 years ago, Jinrong first launched his pet detective business and so far has reunited around 1,000 missing pets back with their worried owners.

And he solves each case with the help of high-gear tech.
