VOLUNTEERS WORK ON BUCKET LIST FOR SENIOR DOG WITH CANCER -We’ll do our very best to fill his final days with as much joy as possible.”

In late June, a stray dog named General Jimmy was discovered on the streets in an extremely emaciated condition with sores on his body.  He has been receiving treatment at the Bridgeview Animal Hospital. Unfortunately, it was later determined that Jimmy has thyroid cancer which has spread to his lungs. Due to his age and weakened condition, chemotherapy is not an option. However, Jimmy has since gained weight, and a rescue group called Every Dog Counts Rescue based in Indiana has been working on a “bucket list" for Jimmy. Read more from Every Dog Counts Rescue:

The advanced stage of his cancer accompanied by his emaciated state mean he’s not a candidate for radiation or chemotherapy.  We will continue to support him & love him in every way we can as long as he’s still feeling good and enjoying life, but we won’t be placing him up for adoption. He’s very much enjoying all the soft blankies, shirts, and soft treats that have been sent his way… thank you!! He also loves to lie in the sunshine and enjoy the backyard with his foster siblings… We’ll do our very best to fill his final days with as much joy as possible. Thank you all for sending him your love. We’ll continue to share his journey with you… thank you for loving him with us.

Despite his cancer, General Jimmy’s remaining days will be filled with love thanks to his foster family and the great volunteers. Click here to learn more about Every Dog Counts Rescue. (Photos from their Facebook page)

"In this cruel world filled with careless people, we put our faith in children. Unfortunately, many times their pure kindness is blocked by "mature" minds. A group of kids found two puppies in the grass outside of a block of flats. They tried to take them home, but none of their parents agreed. The kids arrived at a friend’s door, asking her to take in the puppies. Even though she is full of strays, how can she turn down an innocent request of help? Selena said yes to the two 2 months old girls. Their natural cuteness gained Selena’s heart and they are very well taken care of in their foster home, along with more less unfortunate animals, just like them. The white female is called SPOTTY while the brown + white one is called MOLLY. They are both gorgeous, playful and full of puppy joy. They will be of small size. Please, share them and let’s find these babies homes!

Anyone, from any country can help (heart emote)”You can contact the organization and donate to help Romanian strays here: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/rescue-spay-neuter-romanian-strays/146545

"Laica is a special girl, a GSD mix, with an endearing story. She was owned, but never cared for properly: no deworming, no vaccinations, not spayed. She’s had many litters of puppies, but her last one was too unlucky. She had 7 puppies, Selena took them all in, but only 3 survived. She cared for the babies and loved them dearly. We fell in love with her sweet personality. She was spayed afterwards and this only revealed a terrible sight: our Laica had ovarian cancer. We started cytostatics treatment and she endures the IV fluids like a good girl. She is now chubby and feels okay, but will need special care: close monitoring, visits to the vet, cytostatics from time to time.

Laica is 10 years old, dewormed, vaccinated, playful and patient with dogs, good with cats and gentle with children. She is obedient and loves going for walks. I can truly say she is indeed the perfect dog. We love her endlessly and we do hope she will be adopted eventually by a family to love her forever! We also know this might not be possible taking into consideration her age and health issues, so we’re always willing to keep her forever in Selena’s foster care (heart emote) Share her, maybe someone special will spot her! Thank you!

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Hartz is the worse EVER! my aunt used it and it ended up killing two of her cats. only one survived but she had the worse skin condition. NEVER USE HARTZ

Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
