These Guys Thought They’d Attracted Some Fish, But They Got A Huge Surprise Instead

A few fishermen were trying to catch snapper about 10 miles off the southern coast of New South Wales, Australia, when they spotted something moving toward them.

At first, they thought they finally had some fish on their lines, but they quickly realized that that these visitors wanted nothing to do with their bait!

Dolphins are such gorgeous, majestic creatures. I bet it’s incredible to see them in their natural habitat, especially when there are so many of them!

Watch The Heroic Rescue Of A Dog Stuck For 2 Nights In A 15-Foot Sinkhole

Skye, a seven-year-old golden retriever, seemingly disappeared into thin air when her owner let her off the leash during a snowstorm. After two days of nonstop searching, Skye’s family heard faint barking coming from inside of the Arboretum at Penn State. In that moment, they realized that the poor pup was trapped at the bottom of a 15-foot sinkhole!

When firefighters arrived on the scene, they were greeted by Skye staring back at them. After carefully lowering a ladder, Assistant Chief Dennis Harris made his way down to the terrified dog and hoisted her out. Look at how happy she was to run again!

Even after spending two whole days alone in that dark hole, she didn’t give up hope.

This Cafe Offers More Than Coffee It Also Has Cuddles With Puppies On The Menu

What would make your morning coffee just that much better? What makes everything better, of course…dogs!

Yes, our prayers have been answered! After being overshadowed by countless cat and owl cafes around the world, a new coffee shop has soft launched in Silver Lake, California, that is going to change the game for good. The country’s first dog cafe is set to officially open on April 7!

Aptly named The Dog Cafe, this coffee shop allows its patrons to buy a cup of joe and enjoy it while hanging out with some of the area’s rescue dogs — all of whom are up for adoption.

The Dog Cafe hopes to change how people view and go about adopting pups. Customers get to interact with a pooch before deciding whether or not they want to take that dog home.

The no-pressure, relaxed environment is perfect for those considering adoption. Plus, if you just want to play with some dogs, you can do it while getting your caffeine fix!

Either way, the dogs benefit because they become socialized and comfortable with being around humans and other pups.

The price to enter the café is $10/hour. With that payment, you get complimentary tea or coffee and an awesome time.

For now, entrance is on a first-come, first-served basis, but after April 7, it’s recommended that you make reservations on their website.

Learn more about the great work they’re doing here!

If you’re a dog lover or know someone who is in the Los Angeles area, you definitely need to check this place out!

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?”

While On A Hike In The Woods, They Found And Rescued Four Abandoned Kittens

It’s not uncommon to come across animals while hiking in the woods, but these two weren’t expecting to stumble upon a litter of kittens.

The Houston couple was going for their usual walk through the woods in Spring Creek Park when their normal hike turned into quite the adventure. That’s because they came across four abandoned kittens roaming around in the middle of the forest.

Coming to the conclusion that the adorable kitties were not feral, they decided to round them up…which turned out to be easy, since they followed them right to the parking lot!

It was clear these babies weren’t feral by the way they immediately ran up to their new human friends.

Finally, a comfy place to take a nap!

Once they were home, the babies were treated to fresh food and water.

Just look how happy they were to be inside.

The rescuers are happy to report that all of the cats now have permanent homes!

This Cat Really, Really Doesn’t Want His Owner To Work Anymore

I’ve probably spent the last 20 minutes or so procrastinating by browsing the internet, watching funny cat videos, and talking to my coworkers in the office chat.

If you have to work on a computer all day (and let’s be real, most of us do), you know how tempting it can be to lose yourself in the web’s many distractions. But some distractions are way cuter than Facebook and Twitter.

The struggle is so real if you work from home or your office allows pets, because fur babies love monopolizing our attention. Take this cat, for example. The impatient feline really isn’t pleased that Dad works all the time, so he goes to great lengths to distract him at every turn.

This employee clearly has to deal with some precious problems at work every day, but I don’t think he minds.

This Dog Knows Who He Should And Should NOT Trust…So Smart!

My dog goes on high alert whenever anyone walks by the front door. Even if it’s someone she knows and loves…she just doesn’t trust anyone until they’re inside and she’s given them a thorough once-over.

It’s great for protection, but it can also be super annoying after awhile.

This dog, on the other hand, knows exactly who to trust — and precisely who he should never trust. Just watch as his dad tells him which treat is from which person…

What a smart pooch! I know my girl would walk straight up to anyone, even the dog catcher, if they had a tasty treat in their hands. She’s not trusting…unless they have food for her.

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.

Police Officers Rescue The Unlikeliest Creature From A Dumpster. And Then Adopt Her!

There are plenty of stories about fire fighters and police officers being called to rescue cats stuck in trees, but when officials in Fairfield Township, Ohio, got a call about a potbelly pig that was stuck in a dumpster, they were stunned.

The pig had gotten into the dumpster after two teens got tired of carrying it down a road and decided to take a break. Not wanting their pig to run away, the teens decided to put the animal into a nearby dumpster. They later found out that this probably wasn’t such a great idea. They simply couldn’t get the pig back out and had to call 911. After police and an animal rescue group got it out, the teens admitted that caring for it was too much, and they ultimately gave it up for adoption. Fortunately, a kind police officer gave the pig a loving home.

You should always be very careful about taking in an animal that you might not be able to care for. Sure, potbelly pigs are cute, smart, kind creatures — but they also grow up to be a lot larger than most people realize.
