Animal Rescuers Were Shocked When This Stray Dog Walked Up To Them

Our friends at Animal Aid Unlimited have seen just about everything when it comes to stray dogs in desperate need of help — but when this pup, suffering from a life-threatening abscess on his face, ran right up to them during his rescue, they were shocked. His face was so swollen it was about twice the size it normally should be!

After seeing the state the poor dog was in when they first discovered him, you’ll hardly believe that it’s the same pooch at the end.

This sweetheart would have perished if it weren’t for these kind people rushing in and saving him.

Travelers at a train station in Udaipur, India, heard distant yelps from what sounded like a distressed animal. Following the screams for help, they discovered Florence, a street dog who had been hit by an oncoming train and had lost her leg as a result.

Despite her recent row with trauma, Florence was up and walking around the train tracks when a rescue team with Animal Aid Unlimited arrived. A true testament to just how strong the sweet girl was…but her story wasn’t over there. She had a long road to recovery ahead.

Check out Florence’s emotional journey below:

They Were Out At Sea When They Saw Something Swimming Through The Waters…

A group of sailors was enjoying an outing off the coast of Naples, Italy, when they spotted something small and furry struggling to keep its head above the waves far out in the waters. The poor pup had apparently fallen off a ferry while on his way home with his new owner, but the ferry crew refused to stop and retrieve him.

Luckily, these kind strangers were more than happy to pull the sweet pooch up to safety.

He had clearly been treading water for a while by the time they found him.

He was exhausted and shaking from the chilly waters.

You can see his whole incredible rescue in the video here:

They were able to locate his owner who was overjoyed to see the cutie, whose name is Noodle, alive and well. The ferry company issued an apology and are currently investigating their crew members who told the distressed owner his pup had “probably already drowned” rather than attempt a rescue.

This Is The Nasty, Inhumane Truth About ‘Cage-Free’ Eggs

When I’m buying eggs, I almost always pick up the ones labeled “cage-free.” They cost a dollar or two more, but they’re humanely obtained and better for you, right?

Sadly, there are a lot of misconceptions about the term “cage-free.” While a farm may not use cages, the conditions are far from humane or sanitary. Birds are packed into buildings, shoulder to shoulder. With little room to move, many go crazy. Others are pecked to death or eaten alive by their mates because starvation and neglect run rampant.

I always thought cage-free farming looked something like this. Blue skies, green fields, and lots of room for happy birds to roam.

Grocery stores like Costco even label their eggs with pictures of happy, thriving hens.

However, this is what it really looks like inside cage-free farms used by Costco and other retailers.

On these types of farms, cannibalism among hens has recently gone up by 3,000 percent.

Driven mad by their conditions, hens attack other hens in what is known as “vent-pecking.” This grisly form of cannibalism consists of pecking at reproductive organs until a hole is formed and internal organs can be consumed.

Recently, a team went undercover to view conditions and rescue a bird. This is what they saw.

When They Found This Stray Dog He Had An Injured Paw – Now Watch As He Gets Help

Recently, animal rescue organization Howl Of A Dog came across a stray roaming around an industrial area in Romania. When they approached the poor pup, they noticed he was licking a bloody wound on one of his paws. To make things worse, he also had a deep cut on his tongue, most likely caused by licking the inside of a sharp metal can or a broken glass container while scavenging through garbage for food. They knew they had to get the little guy out of these harsh surroundings, and luckily for everyone involved, he jumped into the back of their car without a fight.

Watch Amigo’s heartwarming rescue story.

What a sweetheart. He clearly wanted nothing more than to be loved!

A Dog Was Trapped In This Hut, But Luckily, These Heroes Were Quick To The Rescue

Our friends at Animal Aid Unlimited were called to a collapsed house after neighbors heard the faint whimpering of a trapped puppy. Heavy rains proved to be too strong for the tiny hut, causing the foundation to buckle and the structure to fall in on itself.

Upon arriving on the scene, rescuers began the difficult task of digging through the debris and were eventually able to safely pull the tiny pup from the rubble. After a thorough cleaning and safety check, the dog was reunited with its mother.

Watch the heroic rescue and tear-jerking family reunion for yourself!

Swan Admiring Its Own Reflection In Someone’s Backyard Gets Caught And Set Free.

When this beautiful swan got lost, he ended up wandering into a family’s yard. He didn’t leave it, though, because what he found there amazed him. There was a mirror leaning up against a wall. Once he saw his reflection in it, he couldn’t look away.

The homeowners didn’t know what to do with a narcissistic swan. So, they called Simon from the Wildlife Aid Foundation. Simon, having a lot of experience with swans in the past, came prepared with a special swan capturing bag.

Getting the swan into the bag wasn’t all that difficult for Simon, but he was taken by surprise when he went to release it. There’s no doubt this guy was ready to be free!

It’s almost as if that swan was saying to himself; “Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest swan of all?”

Animal Rescuers Close Down A Highway To Save The Life Of A Badly Injured Goose.

Volunteer vet Cristina and volunteer animal rescuer Ron from the Wildlife Aid Foundation were called to the U.K.’s busiest motorway to rescue an unfortunate bird.

The Highways Agency called the two for help after a Canadian goose crash-landed on the road and looked in pretty bad shape. The bird walked down the hard shoulder, fortunately behind the crash barrier, and was unable to fly due to a broken wing.

The Highways Agency put a rolling roadblock in place, as the animal rescue duo were concerned the bird would run into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, the bird found sense and tried to climb up the bank, where he was eventually captured by a fearless Cristina.

What a dramatic rescue! Luckily no one was seriously hurt, bird or human. The poor bird will have to stay at an animal rescue center for some time, while its badly broken wing heals. We hope it gets better soon.
