This Nanny Stole A Family's Aging Cat To Rescue Him From "The Needle"

Here's a brave and caring woman, Rebecca Katz, who couldn't let the family she nannied for euthanize their aging cat. Katz says she heard her employers threatened the 15-year-old Tabby cat named Tigger with "the needle" every other day. 

It got to a point where Katz was afraid to come into work and finding out Tigger was gone. "For a few years, I've been crying because I didn't know that the cat would be there the next day," said Katz.

She offered to take the senior cat and give him the proper care he needs, but the family refused. 

So she did what she felt she had to do -- steal Tigger.

Man Asks For A Dog That No One Wants, Ends Up Adopting 10 Senior Dogs!

Here is a man who truly, truly loves animals. Steve Greig, an accountant from Colorado was feeling distraught after one of his dogs died and after a month or two went by, he decided the only way he would feel better was if something good happened. So, Greig went into an animal shelter and asked for the dogs that no one wanted to adopt.

In The Pooch Times, Greig was quoted saying, "I grew up with a lot of pets. Both my parents were animal lovers and they pretty much always let me have whatever I wanted as long as I could take care of it. So (I adopted) a 12-year-old Chihuahua (named Eeyore) with a heart murmur and four bad knees, and I brought him home, and that was just the beginning of all the animals," he said.

Now Greig has 8 senior dogs that no one wanted to adopt! And that's not all, he also lives with his sister's dog, a roommate's dog, a pig named Bikini that thinks she's a dog, and he also shares a home with a menagerie of cats, chickens, ducks, pigeons, a rabbit, and a pond full of fish!

Talk about a full house!

This New 'Grown-Ass Adult' Dog Adoption Campaign Is Straight Fire

It's easy to convince people to adopt a puppy, like adopting people, people mostly want babies. However, puppies are the first to go at the shelters and rescues, and the poor adult and senior dogs are left there. And those dogs have just as much love inside. 

Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) had just come out with a recent, and brilliant, ad campaign. The posters and the hashtags #grownassadult and #adoptadult is educating people about the many advantages of adopting grown-up dogs! 

And there are so many advantages! If you're thinking about adopting a dog, we hope this campaign sticks with you and you consider adopting an adult.

"Get a dog who gets you. Adopt adult."
