Shy Shelter Dog FLIPS OUT After Realizing He's Been Adopted

Shy Shelter Dog FLIPS OUT After Realizing He's Been Adopted

Oh, what a difference a day makes!  Animal rescue can be grueling work, but nothing makes it worthwhile as much as seeing the sheer transformative joy in the face of an animal whose life has been saved by human kindness.

Case in point: Benny.  Not as outgoing as some dogs--although thoroughly loving at heart--Benny's time was almost up.  He'd landed at the Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California.  For weeks, Benny languished in his kennel, consistently overlooked.  Until the day one human family showed up and said the magic words: "We're taking him home."  If you can hold back happy tears at seeing Benny's unbridled ecstasy upon realizing that he has his forever family at last, you're better than we are!

The only thing as good as living with an animal is saving an animal's life.  Adopting from shelters lets you do both.  To learn about adopting a pet, or to find out other ways you can help, visit your local animal shelter.

This ‘Vampire’ Hedgehog Is Instagram’s Newest Star

This ‘Vampire’ Hedgehog Is Instagram’s Newest Star

Meet Huff, a 3-year-old rescue African Pygmy hedgehog from Utah whose adorable fangs have earned him a following of 12k people on Instagram. Otherwise known as Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer, the cutie-pie was adopted by student Carolyn Parker after his previous owner treated him badly.

“A lot of people in Utah struggle with seasonal depression-including myself,” Parker says. “I started the account because I wanted to share something that made me happy with other people. Huff comes off as being grumpy and “huffy” but is really lovable and cuddly on the inside. I think that’s why there is such a large fan base for hedgehogs…because a lot of people can relate.”

Amazing Stray Animal Transformations That Will Make You Cry

Amazing Stray Animal Transformations That Will Make You Cry

Animals need us, and these animals were lucky find some #HomersHeroes to help them out.

Vincent


Little Vincent is a painter. Vincent had been living the street life trying to sell his art but couldn't make it. Vincent Van Meow now has a studio where he takes cat selfies.

Cedar


This skin-and-bones pupster was scrounging around, begging for quarters at a local golf course. Luckily for him he was taken in by a golfer nearby, and now he's living the good life.

2

Rasta


Rasta is a fitting name for this partial toy mix. The matted fur on this dog was obviously a chore to remove. But it's worth it for a happy pooch like this.

3

Ellen


It's surprising this is a mutt terrier after all that hair was removed. Over 2 pounds of hair was removed from this pooch.

4

Woody


Woody got dumped when his master died. He hid around town for days. Evidently he decided it was time for a haircut.

5

Almost Dead


This poor baby was almost dead in her own box when they found her. Luckily somebody nursed her back to health.

6

Little Baby


This Spaniel Mix fell on some hard times. She couldn't pay rent, and her dog house got foreclosed on. Luckily some good Samaritans came along and gave her a little hope. Now she has a little smile on her face.

Homeless Dog Found In Garbage Becomes A Lion

Homeless Dog Found In Garbage Becomes A Lion

When German photographer Julie Marie Werner found a scruffy homeless dog hunting for scraps of food in her garbage in Spain, she fell in love with him immediately. While other people saw nothing but a homeless mutt, she saw a brave little lion, and she now wants the world to share her vision with this heartwarming series of photographs.

The cute canine model is named Tschikko Leopold von Werner, and the project is called Grossstadtlowe, which means “Big City Lion”. And as you can see from these pictures, he really does look like the king of the (urban) jungle! Julie believes that Tschikko was left to fend for himself after being thrown from a car in Spain. He’s come a long way since then, not just emotionally but also geographically, as after deciding to adopt him Julie brought Tschikko back to live with her in Germany.

The Miraculous Story of Stockings, the Pretzel-Legged Kitty

The Miraculous Story of Stockings, the Pretzel-Legged Kitty

Stockings had a rough start at life. The orange tabby was born with a severe birth defect that left him unable to stand or walk.

1

He was only a few weeks old when he was brought in to Chicago's Tree House Humane Society. Despite his handicap, Stockings just wanted to run and play like any other kitten!

2

His first surgery was in October of 2014; this would be the first of multiple procedures to correct his tendons and the direction of his feet.

3

Stockings' right leg didn't respond well to surgery at first. He would go on to have two more operations. “We went forward with surgery knowing we could never make him normal,” said Dr. Steve Neihaus. “Our goal was to make his feet functional so he could live a happy, pain-free life.”

4

He was a little wobbly at first, but soon enough Stockings was was walking and running on his own.  His foster mom, one of the vet techs at the Chicago Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center, decided to adopt him officially.

5

Stockings is one of thousands of kittens rescued, treated, and homed by the wonderful people of Tree House Humane in Chicago. Homer's mom is proud to serve on their advisory board!
