Most of us have probably known a stray cat who lived in our neighborhood, going from door to door asking people for scraps. That is likely the history behind Thomas, the cat in the photos below. Thomas (whose full name is Sir Thomas Trueheart) was probably doing nothing more than asking humans for food and a little love when somebody decided to pour acid on his head. When poor Thomas showed up on a woman’s porch with an eye missing and no collar around his neck, she did the compassionate thing and brought him to the vet immediately.
When Thomas’s rescuer brought him to the vet, the doctor did little more than administer antibiotics, run a few tests, and then suggest that he be euthanized. His rescuer wouldn’t let Thomas die, so she contacted Milo’s Sanctuary, a rescue and sanctuary for special needs cats.
Even though Thomas’s rescuer was able to take him to the vet, safely capturing an injured animal is best left to the professionals. If you ever find an injured animal, please contact your local animal rescue hotline.

When Katy, the dog in the photo below, was abandoned outside of a vet’s office, she was lucky that she wasn’t left to fend for herself like so many dogs are. But her journey to a forever home still had its difficulties. Katy lived in a little kennel at the vet’s office for 2,326 days! She waited day after day, hoping her family would return … but they never did. Luckily, she was found by The Fuzzy Pet Foundation, who made it their mission to find the forever home that Katy truly deserved.
One year ago, The Fuzzy Pet Foundation (TFPF) launched a nationwide campaign to find Katy the dog a family using the photo on the right. When TFPT found the right match for her, they drove 2,600 miles to deliver Katy to her new forever home.
If you’re considering welcoming a pet into your life, always adopt and never shop and please consider adopting an older dog like Katy.
Without The Fuzzy Pet Foundation’s dedication, Katy may have still been living in a tiny kennel at the vet’s office. To learn more about the organization and the work they do, visit their official website. All image source: The Fuzzy Pet Foundation/Facebook
Woman sees a new cooler on the road and pulls over only to find something horrific. The cooler on the side of the road almost looked brand new, so she pulled over to grab it to take home. But when she opened it, she couldn’t believe what was inside…
Nine puppies were crammed inside and covered in their own feces and urine. She immediately called animal control.
Karri McCreary, a veterinarian at Vet Ranch, got the call. She drove to the location and picked the puppies up.
The puppies had to have been found just shortly after they’d been abandoned or else they wouldn’t have made it. It was a miracle they were found when they were.
As she inspected each puppy, she noticed they were all happy and healthy.
And incredibly adorable!
As dog lovers, we are always perplexed when we hear news about people subjecting animals to horrific forms of abuse. When we look into the faces of our furry friends, we’re instantly filled with a feeling of love and of course, that overwhelming need to scratch behind their ears, smother them with kisses, and give them all the treats in the world – just for being. But some people don’t harbor such kind feelings towards dogs.
Unfortunately, Lizka the Terrier did not experience this sort of treatment from the people who were keeping her. This poor pup was forced to live in a tiny cage, deprived of water and food and when rescuers from OTOZ Animals, a Poland-based animal rescue, found Lizka she was in a horrible state. Years of life in this small cage left her with severely contracted muscles and broken spirit. Her rescuers describe her as if she was waiting to die, all alone in her filthy cage.
Thankfully, because of the incredible people at OTOZ Animals, these days soon ended for Lizka. The pup was rushed into an emergency vet clinic and given all the proper medical attention she needed to recover from the physical pain and trauma she had suffered.
After a lot of care, Lizka is doing much better! OTOZ Animals recently shared this video of her running – and looking happy as can be!
While she still has some mobility issues in her back legs, her spirit seems to be stronger than ever! The way she lovingly scoots over to greet her caretakers shows how far this resilient pup has come from the scared, abused dog in the photo above.
This incredible transformation is a testament to how far kindness and love can go when it comes to rebuilding the will to live in an animal. Lizka might have known nothing but pain, suffering, and confusion in her early life – but those days will soon be a distant memory thanks to OTOZ Animals!

There are currently over 70 rescued dogs being cared for in a safe house in Nanning, China. Each of them has a chance of a loving home in the U.S. We desperately need your help to get them there.
Buddy clings on to life after being rescued.
The world's attention has shifted away from Yulin now, but dogs continue to be slaughtered in China 365 days of the year. This is a country with no animal protection laws and, despite all the hard work of Chinese activists, dogs continue to be in danger. Will you please help these rescued dogs by donating now to get them out?
Back in the taxi taking Buddy to a waiting vet clinic, his rescuer whispered a promise. She told him about the mountains he would climb, the beaches he would explore, and above all, the love he would know. And in the back of that taxi, something awoke in Buddy and he began to fight for his life. Against all the odds, he survived and today, he has a loving home in California.
Will you please make a promise to the dogs left behind? Will you please take action now to get them out of China, on to the safety of American soil, and into loving homes?
Thanks to people like you, we will soon be able to fly the first group of rescued dogs, but we are determined to see none left behind. These dogs are counting on you. Will you please help?

What a heartbreaking situation. But things will be better than ever for Boo once he gets a family who will never leave him behind again.
