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.

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.

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!

This Highway Rescue Of Two Dogs Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat!

Would you have stopped?

When drivers on California’s 210 Freeway spotted a German shepherd and a boxer sprinting in the road, they didn’t even hesitate. They stopped and jumped into action.

It took several attempts to grab the dogs off the busy highway, and this video captured some of the action.

This is unlike any rescue I’ve ever seen…

(via The Dodo)

Both dogs were saved and brought to a local animal shelter. What’s even more incredible is that the people who helped were just random passersby. One rescuer says of her decision to help, “I just had to stop and save them.”

She Survived A Tornado To Almost Not Make It Out Of The Wreckage. This Is Her Rescue.

The end of 2015 was rough for much of the middle of the country, where tornadoes ripped across countrysides, destroying homes and taking lives in some places. Rowlett, Texas, was one of those towns where an EF3-rated storm swept through, wrecking Michael Delgado’s home in its path.

Though his brother and grandmother were inside when the tornado hit, they were safely rescued from the rubble after it passed. When cleanup crews came to the scene days later, they heard whimpers and pulled the family’s yellow lab out. He was also alive and well.

It wasn’t until even later and right before they were about to leave the scene that rescuers heard another small cry for help…

Lucy, the family’s miniature pinscher, had survived in between wall studs and made one final cry for help. Thankfully, these brave rescuers saved the day yet again!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by these terrible storms.
