These 40 Seconds Of One Puppy Helping Another Will Melt Your Heart

The Beatles were probably talking about this little dynamic duo when they penned the lyrics, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”

Okay, so maybe not, but they should have been!

When three-month-old Moo Ping saw that his best bud Khao Neaw was struggling to join him on his cushy bed, he got right to work. You see, the one-month-old girl wasn’t big enough to make the little leap, so Moo Ping hopped off and gave her a boost.

What a great guy! Now, snuggle up and enjoy your nap…

When An Adorable Dog Crashed A Soccer Game, Everyone Fell In Love With Him

Interrupting a soccer game can be serious (and violent) business for both athletes and fans alike.

Thankfully, when the Paulistão championships were interrupted, fights didn’t erupt in the stands. Even though the teams were tied 0-0, when a frightened dog ran onto the field, everyone was on the dog’s side. Learning he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, he ran away from the players and security trying to corral him.

Then suddenly, the Oeste and Capivariano teams, both from São Paulo, Brazil, worked together to help bring this dog to the help he needed. See for yourself, and get ready to smile!

Thanks to Alex Santos of Capivariano, who scooped him up, this adorable dog lived out a dream most soccer fans have: getting carried off the field in celebratory fashion by their favorite player.

This Woman Has Made It Her Life’s Goal To Rescue Dogs In Need All Over Nepal

A little over six years ago, Kate and Doug Clendon took in a dog with a broken leg, but that’s just where their journey started

The New Zealand couple cared for the pup in their house, got it veterinary help, and returned it to the community it called home. But when word spread of their selfless deed, more dogs came to their doorstep and the need for a more permanent solution arose.

That’s when they decided to devote their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming poor dogs in Nepal. Community Dog Welfare Kopan was born.

Kate and Doug Clendon wanted to help as many dogs as they could, so they built a shelter next to their house in Kathmandu.

Though Nepalese people believe it’s important to care for not only their dogs but those of the community, the country is incredibly poor.

So when the shelter opened, the kennels were quickly filled with pups in need of food and medical care.

The small team at the shelter works day and night to help treat all kinds of ailments — from broken limbs to tapeworms and cancerous tumors.

They also work with the community on bigger events to distribute vaccines and spay and neuter animals.

While funds have always been a little tight, as is true of most rescue shelters in the world, things were only made worse on April 25, 2015…a 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit the region.

Now more than ever, the people of Kathmandu call on the shelter for help treating lost, injured, and starving dogs.

The dogs (and the locals) are ever grateful for all the aid.

Learn more about the incredible work that Kate and her amazing staff are doing at CDWK every day:

If you’d like to contribute to this amazingly worthy cause, every bit counts. There are plenty of ways to get involved. While every community should be so lucky to have kind people like Kate and her husband, it’s struggling countries and cities like Kathmandu and Nepal that really benefit from their good nature.

Be sure to follow along with all their wonderful work on their Facebook page.

This Loving Pup Helps Sing ‘Happy Birthday’ To His Mom…And It’s Ridiculously Sweet

There’s nobody this adorable pup loves more than his mom. She takes care of him, feeds him, and even takes him on long walks that end in belly rubs! When dad started singing “Happy Birthday” to his favorite lady on her special day, the dog decided to chime in.

Let’s just say that the end result will leave you wishing that your canine companion had a nice singing voice, too.

Okay, he might not win a Grammy anytime soon, but it’s the thought that counts! We’re positive that his mom appreciated the gesture.

This Rescue Dog Makes It Very, Very Clear That Car Rides Aren’t His Thing

If you’ve ever had a car-hating dog, you’ll identify with this video on a spiritual level.

Harvey’s a great guy, but being in the car just isn’t his jam. When his humans try to lure him in, he does what any sensible dog would do and goes totally limp.

The resulting footage is as hilarious as it is endearing, and if there’s anything that you just loathe doing, you’ll understand Harvey’s struggle.

“Come on, Dad!” He’s just not having it, and that’s totally fine, because his protest is absolutely adorable. Let’s just hope that a few pleasant rides will help him change his tune!

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.

ViralNova

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.

These Rescue Pups Will Teach You An Important Lesson About Life’s Little Wonders

Because we’re afforded so many luxuries in life, we often forget just how precious they are.

When you walk outside on a warm summer day, for example, you probably pay no mind to the cool breeze or the soft grass beneath your feet. But these tiny maltese puppies would never take any of that for granted. They were born in a shelter after their mother was rescued, and you’ll melt when you see their reactions to seeing the outside world for the first time.

Sometimes, life’s little wonders are the most beautiful of all. Next time you’re hanging around outside, take a second to appreciate all the beauty around you just like these puppies did.

When You See This Abandoned, Neglected Pit Bull, Your Heart Will Shatter

Thousands of loving pit bulls end up in shelters around the country each year.

People are quick to abandon these dogs, and because of breed stereotypes, they often ignore them when they see them on the street. Worse still is that potential adopters walk right past pit bulls in shelters for the same reason.

Dennis was one pit bull that sadly became a statistic. When the good people at Hope For Paws found him, he was sick, neglected, and in desperate need of some love. Although the situation looked dire, these volunteers pulled off an incredible rescue. Watch until the end to learn a painful, powerful lesson about animal cruelty.

Unfortunately, Dennis was too weak to pull through, but I know for a fact that these volunteers would do it all again if they could.

Thousands of animals need our help, which makes the work of rescuers so important. Head over to the organization’s website to find out how you can lend a helping hand.
