Kitten with Twisted Leg Shows Fighting Spirit and Insists on Walking on All Fours

A kitten with a twisted leg shows incredible fighting spirit and insists on walking on all fours.

Alley Cat Rescue

A tiny tuxedo kitten was brought to a shelter in California early last month. He was just palm-sized and came with a twisted leg. Despite being so little, he was very vocal and determined to live.

Alley Cat Rescue in Los Angeles was at the shelter to pick up two litters of kittens when they were asked about the tiny singleton. “We were asked if we could take one more with a leg deformity. How could we not,” Alley Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.

“We had not seen him until he was brought to us in a carrier shouting as loud as he could. We just adore little feisty babies and see it as a really good sign.”

Photo by: Centro Mexicano de Derecho Ambiental 

Environmental groups recently announced that a total of 351 loggerhead sea turtles have been found dead so far this year in the same area of Baja California coastline where authorities also found 137 dead, beached sea lions last week.

The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) recorded 351 dead loggerhead turtles on San Lázaro beach in Baja California Sur. In addition, stranded sea lions have been found at the site.

In accordance with the provisions of the fishing refuge regulation, it is established that the allowable limit of turtles per year is 90 total. If this yellow turtle mortality limit is reached, commercial fishing with gillnets, falsework or longlines must be suspended for the rest of the year.

Given the situation, Centro Mexicano de Derecho Ambiental together with the Center for Biological Diversity, are asking Mexico’s National Aquaculture and Fishing Commission (Conapesca) to

Days After Shelter Break-In, 4th Missing Dog Finally Turns Up Safe

Rescuers were heartbroken when Boomer, a 2-year-old German Shepherd, was stolen with 3 other dogs from a Virginia shelter. Naturally, there’s never a good time for a dog to be stolen, but Boomer had just been diagnosed with a deadly condition that required urgent medical care. The timing of this particular dog-napping just couldn’t be worse.

Vets had recently discovered Boomer had a very serious case of heartworms. “Our hearts sank when his test came back quickly with a strong positive,” shelter staff wrote on Facebook after his diagnoses. “This one to two-year-old is infected with deadly heartworms growing in his heart and lungs. We are devastated for him.”

But before the dog could begin treatment, Boomer became the first of 4 dogs bizarrely stolen by thieves who broke into the Virginia shelter. Three of the stolen dogs would later turn up … Read the rest

Kitten Found Covered in Oil Reveals His Beautiful Coat and Has His Life Turned Around

A kitten was found covered in dirt and oil and rescued by kind people in the nick of time.

Friends for Life Rescue Network

About a month ago, a Good Samaritan from South Gate, California found a tiny kitten all by himself. He was covered in motor oil, dirt, fleas and was extremely malnourished.

The kind person got the little stray to safety and reached out to social media for help. A groomer from One 4 One Grooming and More picked him up, gave him food and water, and tried to help him rehydrate.

Knowing that the kitten needed immediate medical attention, they sent out pleas to local rescues and hoped someone could come to this kitten’s aid.

YDCCF – Belizean Flyfishing Guides Support Fund

It’s no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has hit so many in so many different ways.  Travel, especially to international destinations, continues to be shut down and even when it opens there may be many who will hesitate to travel anywhere anytime soon.

Yellow Dog Community & Conservation Foundation has kicked off a fundraiser with the help of AFFTA and a growing list of industry partners to support Belizean guides who have likely not worked and may be slow to return to work when the country reopens in October.

I have a real soft spot for Belize.  It’s where my journey (which I am still on) to catch a permit began and in a half dozen trips to Dangriga, Hopkins, and Placencia, there are people, places, foods and Belikins, and of course memories of the flats that fuel a constant need to return.

We’ll get past this damn virus, but

Urgent Call To Action To Help Save 450 Dying Tule Elk In The Bay Area That Are Being Deprived Of Water By Ranchers

In Defense of Animals, ForELK, TreeSpirit Project, Rancho Compasión and 50 concerned local citizens produced an eye-catching piece of artwork pictured below at Point Reyes National Seashore on Sunday, September 13th, in an effort to free trapped Tule elk. The world’s largest remaining herd of the rare California native species are fenced in and dying at a compound amid conditions of drought and nearby wildfires which have created a choking haze of smoke across the entire West Coast.

The National Park Service (NPS) has repeatedly refused to intervene to ensure more lives are not lost, prompting local activists to deliver water to the elk. Tragically, between 2012 and 2014, 254 Tule elk out of a herd of 542 died from lack of access to adequate water and forage.

“The growing number of dead Tule elk has many local people extremely concerned,” said Fleur Dawes, of In Defense of

Watch The Incredible Miracle Of Birth From Inside A Kangaroo’s Pouch

Unless you are a doctor on the obstetrics floor or a tireless field veterinarian, it’s likely not every day you get to see the miracle of birth take place. Thanks to the clever camerawork of the Animal Adventures team, you don’t have to be.

Using a special camera that takes advantage of the unique gestational arrangement of the world’s bounciest marsupials, this team was able to record a joey growing inside its mother’s pouch.

Ababy kangaroo is born completely hairless, shiny and pink after just 33 days in the womb. From then on, the mother kangaroo’s pouch acts as a second womb to keep the joey safe as it grows.

Cat Raised Her Only Kitten and Helped 3 Orphaned Babies, Now Hopes for Dream Home

A cat who raised her only kitten and helped three orphaned babies, now hopes for a place of her own.

Nisa Konuma, Nashville Cat Rescue

Earlier this year, a stray cat and her kitten were brought to the Nashville Cat Rescue (an all-volunteer rescue in Nashville, Tennessee) after they were picked up from the streets.

The orange cat, around one year old, wrapped her only baby in her arms, trying to keep him safe. Nisa Konuma, a volunteer of the rescue, stepped in to foster them when she learned that they needed a place to stay.

The cat mom, Bailey, was shy but thankful to have a roof over their heads and a warm bed to nestle in with her kitten. The little singleton named Whiskey clung to his mom, nursing away.

Man Undresses In The Subway To Give A Freezing Dog The Shirt Off His Back

Kindness is always a good idea as it doesn’t cost you anything, but it makes a world of difference to those who receive it. And we shouldn’t reserve our kindness just for other humans, animals deserve our sympathies and decency as well. That is why it’s such a wonderful thing to see someone stop and provide a helpless animal with a little bit of kindness.

While in a subway station in São Paulo, Brazil, Fernando Gabriel and his brother, Felipe, noticed one very cold, very sad-looking dog. As Gabriel shared with The Dodo, the dog was facing the coldest day of the year completely on his own.

The dog was all on his own. And that is when Gabriel noticed his brother suddenly taking off his backpack and beginning to undress. He was confused as to what his brother was doing. That is when Gabriel pulled out his phone … Read the rest
