These Animals Mourning The Death Of Their Loved Ones Will Make You Rethink Everything

May 2, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Life |

When it comes to animal feelings, we tend to think of them exactly as we humans are or on the other end of the spectrum as unthinking, unfeeling beasts put here for our enjoyment. Every animal is unique in its own way and thinks a little bit differently, but what is clear is that many animals are able to feel complete emotions. According to an article in Psychology Today:

“Grief itself is something of a mystery, for there doesn’t seem to be any obvious adaptive value to it in an evolutionary sense. It does not appear to increase an individual’s reproductive success. Whatever its value is, grief is the price of commitment, that wellspring of both happiness and sorrow.”

This is a story of the right person, in the right place, at the right time. Rock Hill real estate agent Casey Lawrence found the injured Pit Bull dumped in the woods after getting lost while showing a property. The dog was discarded and left to die after likely being used as a bait dog by dog fighters. He was surrounded by bones and animal carcasses!

Fortunately, Casey found the dog, now named Rambo, in time! She rushed Rambo to Baxter Veterinary Clinic. Rambo was covered with bite marks and lacerations and was severely injured, and his leg wounds infected with gangrene.

Kind-Hearted Man Feeds 80 Stray Dogs In Thailand Everyday

Five years ago, when a hungry and wounded dog turned up behind a restaurant in Thailand where Michael Baines worked, he followed his immediate instinct to feed and care for her. He didn’t imagine that this kind act would eventually lead to the hungry dog being one of about 80 strays he now tracks and tends to on a daily basis. Realizing that she was just one of many local dogs in desperate need of nourishment, he transformed his canine compassion into a powerful passion project.

Every morning on his route from home to work at Carrat, a restaurant in Chonburi, Thailand where he is the chef and general manager, Baines stops eight times to feed 30 different dogs. After the breakfast rush ends, he gathers leftovers for his second round, stopping eight or nine times to feed another 30-35 strays, plus six that gather outside Carrat. He feeds four to five more during one final stop on his way back home. That’s about 17 stops and 80 strays total.

Dying Dog Rescued From The Streets Has Been Completely Transformed In Only Two Months

March 23, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Humanity |

When this dying dog rescued from the streets of India was originally found he looked like a lost cause, as well as the saddest creature you’ve ever seen. The organization Animal Aid Unlimited came to the dog’s rescue just two-months ago in hopes of saving his life and making it worth living again.

When he was first found on the side of the road, the poor pup was starving, dehydrated, suffering from mange and had not experienced any human contact in a long time. A spokesperson for Animal Aid Unlimited said, “He was so exhausted and inward.”

As soon as the dog arrived at the rescue facility they hooked him up to an IV and began treating his many infections. It took 10 days for the dog’s skin to heal, at which point the real transformation began to take place.

The results of his transformation are unbelievable. To think this is the same dying dog rescued from the streets only two months before is not only shocking but also inspirational.
