From Feral To Farm: Shelter Finds Jobs For Unadoptable Cats

(CATS/ANIMAL VIDEO) Over three million cats enter animal shelters every year, and nearly half are euthanized. However, people are trying to change this statistic by offering a unique shelter relocation program for cats. For instance, SpokAnimal, a shelter for cats in Spokane, Washington, offers a sort of vocational program for cats by adopting feral, stray, or otherwise "unadoptable" cats out to neighboring farms to act as “Rodent Managers.” Instead of spending their lives in cages or facing possible euthanasia, cats are are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, given a clean bill of health, and then sent to farms in need of rodent control. -- Global Animal

Hurricane Maria Animal Refugees Wag Their Tails For The First Time

(RESCUE DOGS/ANIMAL RESCUE) Even though it's only been a few months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the lives of the dogs rescued by PETA's animal rescue team have changed dramatically. In Puerto Rico, PETA's team gave food and water to shelter animals and provided medical care to those who were injured. They returned to PETA's headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, with the dogs in most need and worked with local shelters to give them a second chance at life. In this new video, you'll see many of the rescued dogs in their new homes, playing with toys, snuggling with their new guardians, and more—all things that they're doing for the first time in their lives. -- Global Animal

Rescued Baby Beaver Bathing Himself

(WILDLIFE RESCUE/BABY ANIMALS/ANIMAL VIDEO) In this short video clip, an injured baby beaver grooms himself in a kiddie pool at the Alberta wildlife shelter. It's believed the rodent—whose sex is still undetermined—was snatched up by a predator and dropped on a golf course under a tree, all alone and nowhere near water. The beaver came into the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation's Madden-area facility on June 27 and with each passing day, the animal is steadily recovering and putting on weight. The shelter expects the beaver to be under their care for the next two to three years, first playing and eating, and then eventually learning the necessary skills to thrive in the wild. -- Global Animal

Celebrate National Pig Day: A Love Story To Oink About

(NATIONAL PIG DAY/PIGS) Today, March 1 is National Pig Day! What better way to celebrate than with the heartwarming rescue story of Lucy the lucky pig? After being abandoned in a field at just one-week-old, Lucy the Red Wattle pig was taken in by Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch (JARR), where she was nursed back to health with the help of her foster parent, Erica Rushing from Flatbroke Farms. Lucy was eventually placed in a forever home at farm animal sanctuary Animal Place, and paired with a perfect pen-mate, Bert. Lucky in life and in love, Lucy quickly fell in love with Bert, who had yet to bond with the other pigs on the farm until meeting Lucy. As it turns out, he just couldn't resist this gorgeous girl, and the two have developed a lifelong love connection where they spend their days playing, eating, and snuggling together. While Lucy is one lucky pig, many aren't so fortunate. Pigs are incredibly intelligent beings, yet they can suffer immensely from inhumane treatment at factory farms, ultimately resulting in their slaughter. Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch is a no-kill rescue and sanctuary dedicated to helping companion and farm animals in need. The nonprofit provides shelter, adoption and rescue services, humane education, animal advocacy, and is committed to ending animal hunger, cruelty, and overpopulation. -- Global Animal
