Man Reunites With Lost Cat When Searching For A New Cat At Shelter

What a happy ending! 

Theron had thought he had lost his beautiful cat named Cutie Pie. Heartbroken, he made the trip to Bangor Humane Society, an animal shelter in Maine, in search of a new cat to heal his heart. 

Upon searching through the kennels, he stopped. A cat that looked just like his Cutie Pie. He examined the cat a little more closely and then the cat turned to face Theron. It was in that moment that Theron erupted in joy because that cat staring back at him was his one and only Cutie Pie.

And to prove it, Theron showed the staff at the shelter countless pics of Cutie Pie on his phone. After the staff saw the photos, there was no question about it! 

Cutie Pie and Theron were reunited and the staff wrote in a Facebook post, "Let me just say I've honestly never seen a cat so eager to be in a cat carrier! He was SO ready to go home!"

We're so incredibly happy for Theron and Cutie Pie! And another important reminder to all pet owners out there -- please microchip your pets! It could save you a lot of heartache.

Happy Friday, everyone! We love Fridays for many reasons:

1. It's the start of the weekend

2. Our original user's lolcats are featured

3. The newly adopted faces of the week, which makes our hearts melt. 

We adore seeing animals find a forever loving home. And we thank all those who adopted, in the past, present, or will do so in the future. We also want to send a special shout out to those who adopt animals who have been in the shelter for far too long, those who adopted animals who are missing limbs, or characteristics that one would consider makes them difficult to adopt. And of course, thank you to those who adopt senior animals and give them a second (and hopefully final) loving home.

Adopted Girl Helps Senior Dogs Find Forever Home, Just Like She Did

What a beautiful heart 14-year-old Meena Kumar has. 

At 9-months-old, Kumar was found abandoned in a basket, on a college campus, in Pune, India. Kumar spent a year in the orphanage before being adopted into her forever home by a couple in Mumbai. The family currently resides in San Jose, California. 

While she was living in Mumbai, Kumar would care for a litter of puppies. And now, living in California, Kumar spends almost every weekend at the Humane Society or Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.

Muttville rescues 1000 dogs per year and is a cage-free rescue. A cage-free rescue whose mission is to give these senior dogs a second chance at life. 

Kumar tells CNN, "More people should adopt senior dogs. They give you the same unconditional love as any other dog." As someone who understands what it's like to be left behind, Kumar wants to help these dogs find their forever home, just like she did. 

However, to volunteer at the Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, you have to be at least 17-years-old, Kumar was 12. So, Kumar decided to come up with an idea that can help the dogs without being a volunteer. She advertised on Nextdoor, a popular neighbor community site, offering pet sitting, and thus, Pet Fairy Services was born.

Florida Inmates Comfort Shelter Dogs On July 4th

We hope everyone is having a wonderful (and safe) 4th of July weekend! As many animal lovers already know, when it comes to the 4th of July celebrations, the loud bangs by the fireworks can absolutely terrify those poor pups. Well, one amazing county is doing their part for their dogs and their community. The Brevard County Sherrif's Office, Florida, had county jail inmates comforting dogs at the animal care center, during the 4th of July fireworks. 

How amazing is that?

This is so wonderful for both sides. According to the original post by the sheriff's office on Facebook, "What originally started as a suggestion by a number of our citizens turned into an amazing idea to help calm our homeless pets, so tomorrow night, for the second year in a row our Chain Gang and other work crews will be comforting the dogs at the Animal Care Center by reading to them, playing with them, and even feeding them treats during the peak hours of celebration on Independence Day."

The overall goal? Not only to calm those terrified dogs during the peak hours of fireworks but to help build and "instill a sense of purpose and compassion in the inmates that will hopefully aid them as they transition back into society once they have served their time."

Just a beautiful idea all around. Kudos to Brevard County Sheriff for taking on such a wonderful initiative! 

Unfortunately, there are no surfaced photos of the event as of yet but it's too lovely of a story not to share!
