Everyone, meet Adalard, or Addy for short. Addy is a 3-year-old dog with an inoperable cranial tumor. Doctors say that he only has a life expectancy of 2 days.

Addy was a stray when he came to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter. The shelter then contacted Lone Star Boxer Rescue, and now Addy is under their hospice care.

Then a family came forward to give Addy the best and most precious gift a dog could ever have–a loving family. Since they didn’t know how long Addy has, the Anderson family wanted to make sure that Addy feels what it’s like to be cared for and loved.

Dog Spends Entire Weekend Staring At A Fish Tank

August 14, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Life |

We’ve all spent a weekend on the couch staring at the television. Well Sophie the French Bulldog has a similar approach to vegging out for a few days. She spent Christmas weekend in her jammies, perched on an ottoman, gazing intently at a fish tank. It was the doggy version of a Netflix binge, and Sophie refused to look away, even for food.

The pictures show Sophie absolutely mesmerized. When her ottoman is moved, she simply adjusts her angle to get a better view. When her owner puts a towel over the fish tank, she sticks her head under it giving her a personal theater. Nothing stops the fish tank marathon.

They weren’t there to learn about animals, or walk them, or do any of the other things that usually need doing around the shelter. No, they were there to read to the animals.

For eleven-year-old Hannah, a pit bull terrier-Labrador mix, life was getting harder to live. Suffering from seizures and riddled with arthritis in her hips, loyal, loving Hannah was also enduring side-effects from the medications she was on to control her seizures. While watching Hannah struggle to walk and climb stairs, owner Kyle Amick knew a difficult decision was on the horizon.“I finally decided that keeping her on the meds was selfish, but keeping her off of them was just as cruel,” Amick stated.

Devastated to see her best friend living in pain, stricken by seizures, with medication that no longer worked, Amick decided to give Hannah one last day of love and pampering. She photographed each step of this beautiful yet heartbreaking final day with Hannah.

Dog Meat To Be BANNED at China’s Annual Yulin Festival

May 18, 2017 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Animals, TRUTH |

If you’re an animal lover, we probably don’t need to tell you all the gory details about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. In short, the festival is held every year to mark the summer solstice, in which thousands of dogs and cats are brutally bludgeoned to death and sold for their meat. 

At its height, the Yulin Festival was said to be responsible for 10,000 to 15,000 slaughtered dogs. In 2014 that figure was reported as dropping to 2,000 to 3,000. Reliable sources put last year’s numbers under 1,000. Given the attention that this horrific festival has been given from activists and celebrities alike, it wouldn’t be far off to suggest that changing public opinion is behind this decline.

But now there is finally good news for the millions of animal lovers worldwide that have been tirelessly fighting to stop the festival for years…

According to a press release from Humane Society International, the Yulin government is set to prohibit restaurants, street vendors, and market traders from selling dog meat at the event. This is a huge milestone for animals!

The World’s Last Male White Rhino Placed Under 24-Hour Armed Guard In Kenya

May 1, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Animals |

Out in the vast wilds of Kenya’s southern savanna, the singular remnant of a once wide-ranging subspecies of rhinoceros stands precariously close to the edge of extinction. The Northern White Rhino, which once ranged over much of the central and eastern regions of the African continent, is staring down the barrel of a gun – literally.

Only a single male by the name of Sudan is left in the wild. Luckily, he doesn’t stand alone.

Rangers from the Ol Pejeta Conservancy guard Sudan 24/7 in an desperate effort to protect him from harm.
