A family from Montreal, Canada found a stray cat and her kittens in their yard. One of the kittens was hiding inside a cinder block, with one leg sticking out. She was very timid and trying everything she could to stay hidden.

Local animal rescuers, Stefany and her mother Johanne, saw the plea for help from the family and immediately responded. By the time they got to the place, the cat mom had moved all her kittens except the one hiding in the block.

The mother cat didn’t return for the little shy kitty. They scooped her up and realized that she was just skin and bones.

The Fight To Restore Federal Protection For Gray Wolves Intensifies After Devastating Laws Allowing Their Slaughter Are Passed In Idaho & Montana

The Center for Biological Diversity, the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Legislative Fund, and Sierra Club recently petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore federal protection for gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act. This follows Idaho and Montana passing legislation aimed at drastically reducing wolf populations.

“Idaho and Montana’s legislative directives to kill wolves by nearly any means possible seriously endanger wolf populations in the West,” Andrea Zaccardi, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, said in a statement. “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should immediately return Endangered Species Act protections to these wolves to halt the impending statewide slaughters.”

As previously reported by WAN, Idaho’s legislature recently passed Senate Bill 1211, allowing the state to hire private contractors to kill up to 90% of Idaho’s wolf population. It also allows hunters and trappers to kill an unlimited number of wolves,

A kitten with a congenital condition is just half of weight he should be. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in personality.

Tiny Tim the kitten was brought into the foster/adoption program at Sheets Pet Clinic (an animal hospital and spay-neuter clinic in North Carolina) because he had a chest bone deformity and needed specialized medical attention.

“He was one of the eight kittens born to a very young mom. The people who found his mom and siblings thought he was the runt and wasn’t growing,” Sarah Hodges at Sheets Pet Clinic shared with Love Meow.

Tiny Tim is eight weeks old weighing only 13 ounces, with the body of a 4-week-old kitten. He has been diagnosed with pectus excavatum (also called funnel chest), a condition in which the breastbone sinks into the chest.

Family Devastated After Their Lost, Microchipped Puppy Was Adopted By Someone Else

A family in Houston, TX is devastated after their lost puppy was found and turned into a rescue – only to be adopted out to someone else.

According to Click2Houston, the little maltese poodle named Byron had escaped their owner’s yard on New Year’s Eve in 2019, two years after they got him.

The family was devastated and did everything they could to find their missing dog, including marking him as missing on their microchip app and posting on Nextdoor, Ring, and other local platforms.

Despite his microchip being marked as missing, the family was never notified when Byron was found. Instead, the rescue that found him adopted him to another family and wiped his microchip clean!

A two-day old kitten was brought to a local shelter in Phoenix, Arizona, in need of help. He was missing a paw as one of his hind legs was found tangled in straw.

The shelter didn’t have the resources to keep the kitten, so volunteers sent out a plea for help. “I saw a post on Facebook calling for a rescue to pull the kitten from the shelter,” Shelbi Uyehara, founder of Jin’s Bottle Babies, told Love Meow.

She dropped everything and rushed to pick up the kitten. After an hour drive to the shelter, the tabby was brought to safety just in time.

Grieving Papa Swan Parents His Babies Alone In Heartbreaking Viral Photo

Like most babies, young swans — or cygnets — depend on their mothers for their survival. Mother swans keep their little ones cozy and safe, teach them to find food and swim, and carry them on her back to stay warm until their feathers grow in.

So, when a resident swan sadly passed away in Boston, her untimely death threw the fate of her 6 ducklings in question. Indeed, without their mother to protect them, one cygnet quickly drowned. Another reportedly had to be rescued by animal control.

Fortunately for the surviving cygnets, father swans aren’t slouches, either. Though they traditionally spend time guarding their territory against feathered rivals, these baby swans were lucky to have a doting dad willing to step up and shoulder the parenting duties after his mate passed away.

According to the Charles River Esplanade Association, which maintains the riverfront … Read the rest

Conservation groups and concerned citizens gathered at Crissy Field Beach in San Francisco earlier this week to honor 12 dead whales that have washed up on shore in the Bay Area so far this year. It is believed that at least four died from ship strikes.

“Dead whales washing up on Bay Area beaches is a wake-up call. We answered that call at this event by demanding action to address ship strikes, entanglement in fishing gear, and climate change,” said Steve Jones with the Center for Biological Diversity, in a statement. “Whales are essential to healthy oceans because they spread nutrients and store carbon. The more we can do to protect them as their populations recover, the better off we will all be.”

Two orange tabbies found themselves at a rural shelter in southern Indiana, in need of rescue. The facility didn’t have the space or resources to keep them, and that’s when ARPO, an animal rescue in Indianapolis, stepped in to help.

“A wonderful lady saved them and took care of them for a few days until they could hitch a ride in transport to make their way to us,” Lori White, a foster volunteer of ARPO, shared with Love Meow.

The feline siblings named Frances and Johnny were very underweight and had upper respiratory infections. Despite it all, they were so happy to be in a home environment and have someone to cater to them.
