Parrot Saves Owner's From Fire By Calling Owner's Name

We always tell you guys about stories of people saving animals, but sometimes, it's the animals who save us. This time, we're not even talking metaphorically about pets who save us by just being in our lives. No, in this case, a parrot literally saved its owner from a huge housefire. The fire was so bad, the entire house was burnt down, but thanks to Eric - the rescuer parrot - the owner is okay.

Heroes Of The Month: Celebrating Rescued Animals And Their Rescuers (October 2020)

Every single month, animals find themselves in precarious situations for various different reasons. And every single month, the lucky ones get saved by some incredible people. We attempt to bring you as many of these stories as possible as they come out, but there are just too many of them. When you think about it, that's really amazing, having too many happy rescue stories to cover.

But since we can't cover all of them throughout the month, we've decided to collect some of these stories for you at the end of each month in a list right here to celebrate these incredible people who put their love and effort into saving animals and the animals that they celebrated. Even so, we will never be able to cover them all, but this is a start, and the people in this list are definitely deserving of more appreciation. 

So, let's say thank you together and hope that next month, there will again be too many rescue stories to cover!

Mountain Lion Cub Rescued From California Wildfires

A 3.75 pound mountain lion cub was rescued by firefighters from the California wildfires and is now being treated in the Oakland Zoo. This small cub was discovered in an area the Zogg Wildfire burned through, orphaned and with severe burns. Luckily, the lion was taken into immediate care and is doing much, much better today, eating on its own and acting all fierce and feisty.

Cat Stuck In A Tree For Three Days Finally Rescued Using A Four-Story Scaffolding Platform

For three whole days, residents in Tredegar, Wales have been trying to rescue a cat that got stuck in a tree. The most cliché situation, right? How hard can it be? All you need to do is call the firefighters, and they're gonna get it done. But apparently, it's not always that easy. Failed attempts to get the cat down include residents offering the cat treats, trying to use cherry pickers, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), and the fire brigade. The person who managed to finally get the cat down is a tree surgeon with a four-story scaffolding platform.

We try our very best to tell you about these heartwarming stories here, but there are just far too many to keep count of.

Kitten With Broken Jaw Saved Thanks To A Creative Use Of Buttons

Three weeks ago, an adorable 5-week-old kitten was brought into Albuquerque Animal Welfare for emergency surgery with her face and jaw crushed. The kitten - Mittens - had to go through multiple surgeries, but unfortunately, in the beginning, they weren't enough. Since multiple surgeries were too expensive for the shelter to cover, the veterinarians that were treating Mittens offered to do the rest of the treatment for free and, in the process, came up with a new, innovative way to help Mittens, using... buttons.
