An itty bitty fox cub got separated from its family and stuck in a little stream. The baby was cold and lost, but luckily, it was surrounded by good people who did everything they could to try to help it. And thankfully, one of them was successful, coming in confidently, picking up the cub, wrapping it up in a warm blanket and rescuing the fox cub

On top of all that, this incredible rescuer managed to gather enough information to find the fox cub's family, and following through with the rescue, he brought the little cub home. You can even hear the adorable foxes chattering and laughing with each other when the baby returns back to his home. It's so heartwarming, it makes our hearts fully melt, and we are so grateful for this happy ending.

Heartwarming Tweets: Adopting Super-Senior Cats In Desperate Need For Love

Every single cat deserves to have the most loving and amazing forever home. Even the senior cats, even the cats with behavioral problems, the most "difficult" and "unadoptable" animals still deserve to have a forever home worthy of their love. 

We understand why it's hard to adopt a senior - it takes a big emotional toll knowing that they're not going to be with us for a very long time. So, we get why people don't adopt them as often as kittens, but that understanding makes us all the more appreciative when people do adopt senior cats, and especially super-senior cats. 

These tweets are going to make you 'aww' and also make your heart hurt ever so slightly - but in the best way. Your heart will be full of love reading these tweets.

Thank goodness for good people. When a stray cat showed up at Steinbach Fire Department in Manitoba, Canada, the firefighters quickly noticed the cat shivering outside in the snow, peeping through their window. 

The officers opened their doors and began to shower the cat with warmth, care, and love. The stray was able to receive immunization shots and was spayed. The firefighters posted on social media, asking around if someone was missing this lovely little lady, but when no one came forth to claim her, they decided to take care of her themselves and have given her a fitting name - Ember.

Ember is often featured on the station's social media page as "Ember Alerts." But alas, the fire department wanted more for Ember and now Ember has a forever loving home. We wish every stray cat a happy ending.

Still, there are time when one of those adorable abandoned animals look us in the eyes, and we just cannot help ourselves. We take them, and we give them the forever home that they deserve, 

That's what these amazing people did with this puppy. It followed them home when they were getting groceries, and it gave them the kind of puppy eyes that they simply could not refuse. A heartwarming story with a heartwarming ending, and we are so happy that it was shared with us.

Swan Waits For Her Rescued Mate To Return After Rehabilitation

After a most dramatic rescue of a beautiful swan from a dangerous waterfall, the swan was reunited with her mate, and this amazing, romantic, incredibly heartwarming moment was caught on camera. It's a happy ending like no other, and we are so happy to not only see this rescued swan back in the wild but back in the wild with her mate - who was waiting for it to return at the site of the waterfall. 

As InYourArea reports, "RSPCA officers had teamed up with rangers from the Greenfield Valley Park to help the stranded swan." The swan had fallen down the raging waterfall and was rescued from the bottom of it. Unfortunately, because of a serious eye injury, the swan couldn't be returned to the wild right away and had to go through a period of rehabilitation. 

During the rehabilitation period, the swan's mate was spotted waiting for his at the site of the waterfall where the swan was rescued, so the rescuers were eager to return the swan to his mate. And the reunion was gut-wrenchingly beautiful.

Check out the pictures from the reunion below!

Dog Rescued From Frozen Lake Gets Adopted By Rescuer

On Sunday, March 14th, a dog was spotted stranded on ice in the middle of Haines Lake. A post went up on Digby Talks Facebook page, asking if anyone could help the dog. According to The Chronicle Herald, the dog has been seen roaming the area near the lake for weeks, but no one was able to catch her, and no one came forward to claim her as their own. It took the work of multiple great people to rescue the pup, and thankfully, their effort was no in vain. 

The first rescue attempt was by a local drone operator, Zane Lynch, who tied a hot dog to his drone and attempted to lure the dog using that. No success there. In the meantime, Nathaniel Denton and his neighbor Mike Titus ventured out on their canoe to rescue the dog. 

Denton, being an experienced diver and wearing a dry suit, "got out of the canoe and broke a path through the ice so they could get closer." He broke a couple hundred feet of ice in an attempt to get to the dog, but the dog was too scared to approach him. So, he turned around, back to the canoe, and pushed the canoe - with Titus inside - closer to the dog. It took a while for the dog to trust them, but eventually, she did, and they were able to get her back to shore. 

Not only that, but later that day, the gorgeous pup was adopted by the hero who saved her - Dentons, so we know for sure that that her forever home is full of people who would do anything to help her.

Teacher Rescues Injured Fox Using A Box Of Cat Treats

Walking out of her car one day, 28-year-old teacher Georgia-Blue Townshend from Colchester, Essex, spotted something curled up on her driveway. Georgia-Blue is a secondary school English teacher who lives with her partner and 9-year-old son, and the three of them take stray cats into their home. 

"I was just going out to get the things out of my car when a neighbour told me there was something curled up by the back wheel," she said, reports NottinghamshireLive. "On a closer look, I realised it was a fox and all I could think was, 'the poor little thing' – it definitely looked injured."

Taking one of her coats from her car, Georgia-Blue slowly approached the fox, thinking to use the coat as a bed for the fox. The fox, obviously scared and in pain, stayed hiding under the car, but eventually, after presenting the fox with a box of mega box of Dreamies cat treats that she grabbed from her house, the fox came out of hiding. 

"She loved the Dreamies," Georgia-Blue said. "She seemed to perk up when I offered them." A bit revitalized, the fox began to move, attempting to drag herself back onto the road multiple times. Eventually though, after Georgia-Blue managed to lay a towel over her, the fox calmed down, allowing Georgia-Blue to call rescue centers. 

Read more of the story, including Georgia-Blue's comments about how she managed to rescue the cub, and check out adorable pictures below!

Affectionate Rescue Dog Madly In Love With Its Adoptive Human

"There's no love quite like the love of a rescue dog," writes imgur user Rumpleteazer, and we are inclined to agree. There is something incredibly unique about the love that a rescued animal shows to you, the trust that it feels toward you after being previously hurt. And it feels just as special on your end, knowing that you helped an animal who would have otherwise not have had a good life, feeling the trust that you earned through your actions, and sometimes through a long time and a lot of work.

That kind of love lasts for a long time. And we are so happy to see Rumpleteazer's pup happy and oh so affectionate and in love with its adoptive human.

Adventurous Seal Rescued 4 Times In 3 Different Countries

Another day, another adventure gone slightly wrong for Freddie, the trouble-seeking seal. 4 rescues, 3 countries, and he's back out in the wild and, going by probability, we will most likely see Freddie pop up in another rescue story at some point. 

As Mirror reports, Freddie's adventures started at only 9 months old. "The adventurous pup... started his journey in the Netherlands last year where he was treated at a hospital in August where he was given his name. After he was released, he then turned up in Calais France in January, where he was treated at another seal rescue centre suffering from lungworm. Three weeks ago having made a good recovery, he swam the Channel before making his way 70 miles up the river Thames to Teddington Lock, south west London."

And... a week later, Freddie was found, yet again, in the Thames as he was snagged in the mouth by a fishing lure. He's totally fine, by the way, as adventurous as ever, but we wouldn't expect anything else of this trouble maker.
