This is something that the folks at the Pima County Animal Care Center in Tucson, Arizona, knew all to well. At the same time, the folks working at Catalina Springs Memory Care facility...

Romeo Wasn’t Born with Classic Kitty Good Looks.

Instead, this kitty came into this world with a deformity that made his face uniquely his own. Not that many would have noticed anyway. The kitten was living as a stray on the streets in southeastern Spain, likely to leave the world as anonymously as he had entered it. That is, until Laura Llácer found him. As director and co-founder of Santuario Compasión Animal, Llácer was only passing through. But, unlike so many others, she couldn't pass Romeo when she spotted him on the street. Llácer was told all of Romeo's brothers and sisters had already found homes — but that Romeo was "too ugly" for anyone to take him home. "We were surprised that people did not see that this was someone special," she advise. Llácer was so moved by this kitten who was left to face

Therese Vu and her husband, Duc Tran, were loving parents to two inseparable dogs for 16 years. When one passed away from kidney failure, the other passed away from the same thing — just one month later. "I literally believe that the second one passed away from a broken heart," Vu said "I can't even put into words how saddened I was to lose them both, and I honestly didn't know if I could open my heart and home up to another dog again." But that all changed when Vu and her husband met Kanga and Roo. Kanga and Roo are a brother and sister pair who were both born with only two legs and are products of overbreeding and inbreeding. Their breeder tried to care for them for about a year but was overwhelmed by their special needs, according to the Georgia-based rescue group Ange

These 16 Fluffy Animals Will Make You Say Awww. Animals can be beautiful or adorable no matter whether their color, size, species or length of hair. But, as far as furry mammals go, the fuzziest of them definitely have an edge when it comes to cuteness. Of course, only some of the animals on this list are naturally this fluffy – many have been bred especially for this purpose. The Angora rabbit, bred for its wool, is one such species – rabbits this fluffy do not occur anywhere in the wild. Others on this list, like the fox or Chow Chow, are naturally fluffy. They get even fluffier in the winter, when their hair lengthens into a thicker winter coat. Some theories hold that, in finding an animal cute, we are actually seeing characteristics that we look for in our own children. We find l
My cat and dog have THE worst marriage I’ve ever seen

My cat and dog have THE worst marriage I’ve ever seen

Baby Animals
 This could be because they’re not actually married… but honestly that’s just the tip of the iceburg. They’re rude to one another. They push each other’s buttons on purpose. I’m not even convinced that they like one another at all. Still, I am determined to help. That is one pissed cat… I sent these two to a marriage counselor (me) for an afternoon to attempt to sort out some of their deep rooted marital issues and help them better achieve wedded bliss. From the outset, I was fully aware of the problems associated with me counseling these furry lil chicas: 1. I’m their mother, which means it’s 100% unethical. 2. I’m not a licensed therapist. In fact, my degree is in theatre and has nothing to do with this. 3. They’re not married. These things are true, yet I was inclined to give it a

Everyone Thought This Kitten Just Had A Weird Eye Infection Although Mississippi's Wild at Heart Rescue primarily deals with wildlife, the rescue receives the occasional call to help out with domestic animals as well. Such was the case with Stevie, the "wonder cat." Last year, Missy Dubuisson, founder and director of Wild at Heart, received a call concerning a kitten who had shown up on a local's doorstep and was thought to have a strange eye infection. Dubuisson contacted Stephanie Roberts, a wildlife rehabilitator with Wild at Heart who specializes in squirrel care but regularly fosters kittens as well. Dubuisson asked if Roberts wanted to care for the 3-month-old kitten.  "I said 'Sure,'" Roberts told The Dodo. "And then Missy said, 'I can't find his eyes though. Please just find
