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!

A Mini Horse Lived In The Worst Conditions…Until These Angels Saved His Life

Neglect doesn’t just happen to poor kittens and puppies. A mini horse named Sebastian is proof of that…

When PETA field workers found him, the three-foot-tall miniature pony was living in a muddy, isolated stall without food, water, or shelter. He suffered from an eye infection, a blunt force trauma to the head, and an injured leg.

Understandably, he was afraid of those who had caused him so much pain…other humans.

Luckily for him, though, the kind rescuers took him away, rehabilitated him, and gave him a new home…

You should have some tissues nearby.

Congratulations, Sebastian. May your days be filled with barnyard fun and lots of rolling around in the hay!

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!

These Dogs Knew Nothing But Pain Until Rescuers Gave Them A New Lease On Life

Living in total misery, two young pit bulls named Lois and Clark lived under a truck until fairly recently. Starving and in desperate need of medical attention, they weren’t going to last much longer in that state. That’s when a few volunteers from Hope for Paws heard about their situation and decided that enough was enough.

They struggled a bit at first, but after some coaxing, they were able to wrangle the terrified pups. When they started warming up to rescuers, the adorable pair revealed that they were actually big softies.

Lois and Clark are now looking for a forever home, and the folks at Hope for Paws really want to find a family that will let them stay together. If you’d like to help them, please consider sharing their story and directing people in the Los Angeles area to the shelter.

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.”

They Heard Screeching Coming From A Well, But They Never Expected To Find This

Villagers in Maharashtra, India, suspected that something was wrong when they began hearing howling and crying coming from the town well.

After a simple investigation, they discovered that a leopard had somehow managed to take a 60-foot plunge into the water. A group of them crafted a bundle of sticks that would serve as a life preserver until a rescue team could step in.

Rescuers from Wildlife SOS were quick to arrive on the scene. The team, led by veterinarian Ajay Deshmukh, decided that their best bet was to lower a crate into the well in hopes that the stranded leopard would become curious and want to check it out, allowing them to pull the jungle cat to safety. At first, our leopard friend thought the crate was an enemy, but after a while, the frightened feline figured out their rescue plan.

If it hadn’t been for these quick-thinking heroes, this precious leopard might have drowned.
