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!

Farmer Saves Fox Cubs By Performing An Emergency C-Section

What starts off as a sad story soon turns into a 'Fox and the Hound' tale. Only without the hound and the heartache of abandonment. Well, maybe a little heartache. Chris Rolfe, a farmer from Haywards Heath, West Sussex, had been checking on his pregnant ewes when he saw a car hit a fox on his way home. He immediately went to check on the fox when he noticed it was a vixen and there was movement of cubs inside her belly. Thinking quickly, he performed a C-Section and pulled out the pups.

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.
