These sad and captivating photos tell the story of a Zoo like so many others. German photographer Elias Hassos perfectly captures the sadness of animals living in small cages – the boredom of spending every day of their entire life in the same spot and never knowing the feeling of freedom. The photos were published in German Greenpeace Magazine together with an article on the changing concept of zoos and their necessity.

For centuries, we’ve imprisoned animals in small cages just for our entertainment. Nowadays, more and more visitors feel compassion for caged animals – behavioral scientists criticize concrete enclosures and artificial light while radical animal rights activists call for an end to “life imprisonment.”

5 Reasons Why You Should Adopt A Pet

July 15, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Humanity |

1. If you adopt, you’ll save a life

Around 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters.

Because there is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to euthanize animals who haven’t been adopted.

The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.

By adopting from a private humane society or animal shelter, rescue group, or the local animal-control agency, you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.

This Story Will Reduce Any Grown Man To Tears: Man Saves A Homeless Dog From Near Death

May 6, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals |

A Pit Bull suffering from starvation and a severe injury was rescued from certain death by a man in Brazil. Wilson Coutinho Martins lives in Rio de Janeiro and has dedicated his life to rescuing and protecting animals from extreme conditions. For many animal lovers in Brazil he is a hero. For dogs like Davi, he is their savior.

The large dog with beautiful green eyes was rescued from the woods outside of Rio de Janeiro in September of 2012. He weighed just 28 pounds (13 kg) and had a huge, gaping wound in his rear. His bone was exposed and he could barely walk from the pain. If Wilson had not rescued him when he did, Davi would most certainly have died from infection and blood loss.

Wilson took Davi home and began tending to his wounds. During his recovery, Davi had to receive several blood transfusions and his wounds needed to be cleaned, treated with antibiotics and bandaged regularly. Within one month, his wounds were much better. A few months later, Davi’s wound had healed even more and he had gained back much needed weight. Although his journey back to health was slow, Davi has made a miraculous recovery. He is proof of how dedication and hard work and love can transform animals in even the most desperate of circumstances
