These Animals Were Living In Inhumane Conditions Before These Heroes Arrived

When the 66 dogs and three horses on this Galia County property in Ohio were found, they were in terrible shape.

Left without water and adequate food for who knows how long, there’s no telling what the fate of these animals would have been had the Humane Society of the United States not stepped in…

From the outside, the home looked relatively normal.

But the inside told a far sadder story. Hiding under every surface…

…were scared, starving dogs.

They all desperately needed medical attention, food, and water.

The Humane Society of the United States knew just what to do.

Watch the full rescue below.

This Dog Is Living His Best Life When He Gets A Doggie Massage

I have a love-hate thing with massages. One the one hand, they’re so relaxing, but on the other, I know that I may very well fall into a deep depression afterwards because I know it’ll be too long until the next one.

Not everyone deals with this inner turmoil when they get a good rubdown, but for me, the struggle is real.

Toto, for instance, hasn’t a care in the world when he gets his doggie massage. In fact, he looks so relaxed I really want to know his secret…

Just look at how happy this cutie is!

I think Toto should become best friends with this pup. I’m sure they’d hit it off…after they got done napping.

They Walked Into A Seemingly Normal Home, But The Condition They Found It In? Horrible.

I wish this was the last time I had to cover a puppy mill rescue, but I know it won’t be.

Despite the widespread knowledge of the cruelty animals experience in puppy mills, the ASPCA still estimates that there are as many as 10,000 of these establishments all over the U.S.

People who purchase animals from pet stores are all but handing their money over to unlicensed, horrible puppy mills.


No matter how adorable they look, odds are, the dogs came from an irresponsible “breeder” who cared very little about their well-being.

This is what a puppy mill really looks like.

When the amazing people at Animal Rescue Corps got to the scene of this particular home in Morgan County, TN, they named the rescue Operation Dire Straits.

And it’s obvious why…these dogs had no time left.

Watch to see what else they found on the property and just how long they worked to save all these helpless animals.

Please, please consider contributing to Animal Rescue Corps. They are doing incredible things to give animals like these ones a second chance at a happy, healthy life.

This Guy Got Bitten By A Bug, Which Is Normal…But His Reaction Is Anything But

When I get bitten by mosquitoes, the spot gets red and balloons up to an uncomfortably large and embarrassing size…but my bites have nothing on what this guy is going through.

Then again, if you bring up Ben C‘s abnormally large top lip, he’d probably ask what you’re talking about. He’s just got naturally luscious smackers, obviously.

But I think everyone — including doctors — would hilariously argue otherwise…

Watch his whole reaction here.

You do you, Ben.

Personally, this would be MY reaction to this kind of bug bite.

These Bacon, Egg, And Cheese Bread Bowls Are The Breakfast You Need

When it comes to getting a balanced breakfast, I aim for the easiest option — cereal.

It’s not exactly the healthiest choice, but it’s better than just downing a cup of coffee, right? Well, apparently I’ve been approaching the meal all wrong. The key is to prepare a few days of breakfast in one go. If you love bacon, eggs, and cheese, you need to check this recipe out.

Here’s how you can make these for your whole week!


  • A pack of bacon
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 ounces of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 2 sandwich buns
  • Grated cheddar cheese


  1. Chop up the bacon into small pieces and cook in a pan.
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together.
  3. Cut the sandwich rolls in half and remove most of the bread inside to form bowls.
  4. Sprinkle the bacon crumble and some grated cheddar cheese in each bowl and top with some of the egg mix.
  5. Bake in the oven at 320°F for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Serve or save for tomorrow’s breakfast!

18 Animals Who Are So Confused By All This Sorcery

Our pets are so wise when it comes to matters of treats, belly rubs, and trips to the park. But ask them to explain complex matters like memory foam or lemons and you’ll probably be met with baffled silence.

Take it from these confused pets…what you’re showing them is surely sorcery.

1. “Wait…what in the?”

2. He’s so confused as to why these treats don’t taste like they normally do…

3. Lemons ARE terrifying.

4. Admittedly, this kind of is sorcery…from a galaxy far, far away.

5. “What kind of cardboard box IS THIS?!”

6. “This time around I’ll getcha…wait, no, this time.”

7. “Just gotta clean this tasty cotton candy before I can eat i–…WHERE’D IT GO?”

8. In their defense, I don’t understand treadmills either.

12. “Is there something on my head? THERE’S SOMETHING ON MY HEAD.”

13. Sticker is decidedly too sticky.

He was exploring and somehow found a stray label that got stuck to his foot.

14. “Human made a funny!”

15. “Stop messing around, Dave. Where’s my string?”

17. “Did I really put on ALL that weight?”

18. “Dad? Is it really you? I thought you were dead.”

*Sigh* They get confused so easily, but somehow, it just makes them that much cuter!

He Threw A Fishing Line Out, But How He Reeled In The Fish Is Incredible

If there’s one sport that needs spicing up — in my opinion — it’s fishing.

You sit in a small boat for hours and you have to be quiet, all in hopes of catching something tiny. Often, you can’t even keep what you reel in!

And while some people have managed to take a slow afternoon on the lake and make it into an extreme sport, this isn’t for everyone…

Here with a quicker option that anyone with a power drill can do is this genius:

Meanwhile, I’ll be over here with Fido.

These 15 Kids Are Absolutely Way Too Cool For School

When I was a little tot, I was pretty weird. I’d hide in cupboards and cling to my mom’s pant leg whenever I went anywhere new or met anyone for the first time. I definitely wasn’t one of those confident cool kids.

Then again, even the children I aspired to be like (who killed it at hopscotch and had tons of awesome toys) couldn’t hold a candle to these awesome kids. They’re on a whole other level…

1. “Just hangin’ with my groupies.”

View post on imgur.com

2. No matter how many times I try, I will never master this.

3. Just a casual day on the playground.

4. This is how all the cool kids park their bikes.

5. Friends call him Little Bird.

6. “Wake me up when Minnie gets here.”

7. He knows how cool he is.

8. “Todd, I thought I fired you last week?”

9. My best dance move is the shopping cart.

10. I wouldn’t want to get on this kid’s bad side.

11. “I call her Betsy.”

12. I’m jealous of so many things here.

13. They’re probably jamming to this kid’s sick beats.

14. He knows all the important letters.

15. “Yo…we done here? I got places to be.”

My inner child (and maybe even my adult self) are incredibly jealous of these kids.

…Mostly because this was basically me as a kid. Nailed it.

Ten Years Ago, This Little Boy Lost Everything From A Tsunami. Look At Him Now!

On December 26, 2004, a massive earthquake rocked the Indian Ocean. The resulting tsunami wiped out towns and homes and changed the lives of hundred thousands. Martunis was one of those victims.

The tsunami struck his hometown of Banda Aceh, Indonesia. His mother and two siblings died that day.

Somehow, the seven-year-old boy survived alone on a beach for 21 days.

When he was found, the little boy was wearing a soccer jersey for the Portuguese national team.

When asked how he’d survived all that time on his own, the boy said that his dream was to become a soccer player — it motivated him to keep fighting.

It wasn’t long before the Portuguese people got wind of Martunis’ story. In 2005, the country’s soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo visited Martunis.

He vowed to pay for Martunis’ education and one day, the boy could even come visit the soccer team’s stadium.

Learn more about Martunis in this short video:

What’s more, just last year, the Portuguese national team signed Martunis on as a player for their under-19 league.

What an incredible story. Even with all the terrible things that happened to Martunis, he kept pushing to achieve his dreams. Hopefully someday soon, he’ll play on the very team that changed his life so many years ago.

This Toddler Dressed As An Old Man For Halloween Is Surprisingly Believable

They say that during your lifetime, you go from being a baby to an adult back to a baby again when you’re old.

If you think about it, it’s kind of true — you go back to diapers, not being able to walk, and jumbling your words. While it’s not hard to picture an old man like a toddler, thinking of a little kid as an old man is pretty tough. They’re so giggly and full of life.

But just watch what happens when you dress a baby up as an elderly man and put a walker in front of him.

Okay, that is seriously the cutest baby/old man I’ve ever seen.

I kind of want to be like him when I grow up.
