This Animal Shelter Is Encouraging Adoptions With Puppy Pajama Parties

No one can resist a cute dog dressed in pajamas, and volunteers from one shelter use that to their advantage.

The LifeLine Animal Project, a rescue group in Atlanta, has come up with an adorable way to get people interested in adopting their rescue dogs. They throw pajama parties with the pups!

The foolproof idea has been causing quite the buzz and dogs that had been waiting a long, long time to find their new families have now been adopted. Not only can visitors to the shelter have sleepovers on site, but they’re also allowed to take dogs home for overnight stays to form bonds. However, the overnight visits aren’t just tryouts for potential adopters. They’re also intended to give these dogs a break from the stressful shelter environment.

But at the end of the day, LifeLine hopes that these pajama parties will help people see the dogs’ true colors and understand the fact that all they want is a little love in return.

That’s it. I’m scrapping my Saturday night plans. I’ll be hosting a puppy sleepover instead.

Stampede Of Golden Retriever Puppies Tumble Down A Slide And Right Into Our Hearts

Training puppies can be hard work. Extremely adorable hard work. Especially when they’re fluffy, wriggly golden retriever puppies.

As a way to help socialize them, this litter of of golden puppies at Enchanted Retrievers are given an obstacle to tackle before their feeding time. The result is one adorable stampede that comes to a momentary halt as the puppies take turns going down a slide. Some even need a friendly nudge to make it to the bottom in time for dinner.

I just love how brave the first little puppy is. Diving head-first towards that delicious food bowl.

Weeee!

This Rescue Of A Sea Turtle Caught In A Fishing Net Will Have You Cheering

Life is full of surprises. You never know when a moment might arise where you’re called upon to do something heroic.

It’s these moments of true spontaneity that show others who we really are.

For the three men in the video below, one such moment presented itself when they were sitting by a beach restaurant and spotted something moving by the shoreline. What they found was a massive leatherback sea turtle struggling to untangle itself from a fishing net.

After some incredible teamwork — and some hissing from the nervous turtle — the three heroes with hearts of gold were able to set the majestic sea creature free.

What a beautiful moment when the turtle swims back out to sea. It must have felt so relieved when it took that dive.

Stunning Footage Captures The Incredible Moment A Dolphin Gives Birth To Her Calf

Katrl, a Pacific white-sided dolphin living at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium, recently gave birth to a calf. A sight that has never been observed in the wild for this particular species of dolphins, much less ever having been filmed!

After three hours of intense labor, the mixture of nervous and excited chatter from onlookers gave way to gasps and applause as the newborn dolphin calf wriggled with the kick, kick, kick of its tiny tail to the tank’s surface and took its very first breath of air.

Witness the miracle of life unfold in the video below, and don’t worry, it’s not too graphic!

The as-yet-unnamed calf is the first for 29-year-old mother Katrl and it increases the relatively small population of the Pacific white-sided dolphins in North American zoos and aquariums to 16.

The Most Adorable Wolfdog Puppies Swarm Woman With Tiny Kisses

The only thing cuter than a puppy is, of course, a dozen puppies! You’ll know exactly how true that is once you see this overjoyed woman get swarmed by twelve adorably fluffy wolfdog puppies, who jump all over her while giving her the sweetest little puppy kisses.

If only our mornings could start like this…this would be the best alarm clock ever!

Little Boy Can’t Hold Back The Tears After Meeting A Tiny Chihuahua Puppy

Sometimes puppies can be so overwhelmingly cute and sweet you could just cry. At least, that’s how this little boy feels.

Sweet Zayden was already bursting with excitement when Mom took him to the pet store, but as soon as he got to hold a Chihuahua puppy, he was so completely overcome with emotion that tears of joy started pouring down his cheeks. So heartwarming!

My heart melted when his response to his mom asking, “What’s wrong?” was “She’s just beautiful.” I’m sure these two new friends will be so happy together.

These Cats Are Seriously Unimpressed With Christmas And Their Festive Owners

Cat owners are often guilty of thinking that dressing their cats up as Santa’s little helpers for Christmas is the funniest thing ever. Cats, on the other hand, don’t agree.

To help the kitties forgive and forget, TEMPTATIONS is urging pet owners everywhere to apologize to their furry friends with treats once those antlers come off. Their holiday campaign lightheartedly pokes fun at cat owners who sometimes go a little overboard in their attempts to lovingly embrace the season with their furry friends.

Aww, poor little guys. Some of them seem so confused and embarrassed about what’s going on. Good thing they don’t know that their embarrassment is being paraded all over the Internet. They’d demand a store’s worth of treats if they ever found out!

Getting Stuck In Trees Isn’t Just For Cats Anymore, As These Firefighters Found Out

Firefighters are used to rescuing scared cats from tall trees, but what about dogs?

When the Plattsmouth Fire Department in Nebraska got a call one night about a 120-pound dog stuck 20 feet up in a tree, they thought for sure it was a prank. They were a little bit shocked when they turned up at the scene to find Kora, a Great Dane, sitting high up in a tree, looking down at them with her big, bright eyes.

After a bit of brainstorming, the team of firefighters were finally able to lower Kora from the tree using a rope, a ladder, and a police dog harness. Several feet from the ground, Kora’s weight snapped her restraints, but a few brave volunteers were there to catch her with a big tarp.

Although she was a little cold after all that time in the tree, Kora wasn’t hurt and was happy to be down, running straight for the house once she was on solid ground.

Hopefully, she’ll leave tree climbing to cats from now on.

Curious And Playful Bears Investigate A Balloon That Drifted Into Their Enclosure

However much you enjoy playing with the latest gadgets, you probably won’t get as big a kick out of them as these adorable bears do when they play with their pink balloon.

The three sloth bears were captivated when a balloon floated into their enclosure at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park in the Netherlands. After they chased it around for a while on their hind legs, one of the bears got a little too excited and…well, they got to experience the inevitable letdown as it popped under the bear’s enormous paw.

A Mountain Lion That Was Chained Up For 20 Years Finally Experiences Freedom

Mufasa was a mountain lion who had known nothing but a life full of misery. He spent 20 horrible years chained to the back of a pick-up truck in a Peruvian circus, but when kind rescuers from Animal Defenders International heard about his struggle and found a way to free him, they changed his life forever.

The day Mufasa got his first taste of forest life is a moment that can’t be missed.

Sadly, Mufasa passed away in late December of 2015, just a few months after he found freedom. His chained-up life in the circus irreparably damaged his health, and he was suffering from kidney failure. As sad as it is that he didn’t get to enjoy more time in his new forest home, never experiencing life in the wild at all would have been the real tragedy.

These Adorable Orphaned Bears Are Really Enjoying Their Delicious, Appley Snacks

Feast your eyes upon these baby bears…enjoying a feast.

Shared by the Northern Lights Wildlife Society on Facebook, this video shows a group of black bear cubs relaxing and enjoying some tasty apples…and they aren’t the only relaxed ones. I never knew watching furry animals chomping down on treats could be so therapeutic.

The adorable short clip was posted by the animal orphanage to thank donors who have donated money or food to build a new bear enclosure.

Northern Lights is taking care of these orphaned cuties until they’re ready to be released back into the wild. In the 26 years since their foundation, the organization has helped rehabilitate more than 370 bears. These apple-snacking cubs (most of whom were orphaned due to vehicle collisions) will be released back into the wild in June of next year to sync with the timing they would naturally leave their mothers.

Animal Rescuers Find 5 Puppies Left To Die In The Freezing Cold

For many, especially animal lovers, the prospect of abandoning pets by the side of a road is unimaginable and cruel.

Yet hundreds of helpless animals find themselves on the street without any food or water every day. They often go days without eating before they’re found, and some are never found at all. Luckily, the five puppies in the video below were rescued by incredible people from the Michigan Humane Society (MHS).

After receiving a call about a plastic container on the side of the road, the MHS went to investigate. Inside they found five tiny puppies that were presumably left there to die. Rescuers quickly took them back to their facility for treatment.

Just wait until you see how they’re doing today!

It breaks my heart to think about the number of animals that find themselves in similar situations each year.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending. One of these pups has been adopted and the other four are in foster care awaiting forever homes!

An Intelligent Killer Whale Sets A Perfect Trap To Catch Some Hungry Birds

This video shows just how incredibly intelligent killer whales can be.

After this whale became tired of eating fish every day, he decided to see if he couldn’t get some tasty bird on the menu, too. The clever killer whale was seen throwing a fish to some hungry birds and waiting for a prey to fall for the bait.

After a short while, his ingenuity is rewarded with a feathery feast.

Giving up a little bit now for a chance to get more later requires a great deal of forethought, self-control, and planning. If I’ve learned anything from delayed gratification studies, it’s that this whale is certainly on track to earn a lot more money than most people ever will.

Two Pug Puppies Trying To Act Big And Tough Get Scared Away By A Tiny Kitten

As pretty much everyone knows, there is nothing more terrifying in this world than a fluffy little kitten.

At least that’s what these two pug puppies would have us believe after they were unfortunate enough to be cooped up in a cage with a horrifying(ly cute) kitty.

At first, the two pugs can be seen putting on brave faces, standing their ground and barking at the confused feline. However, the tiny monster didn’t care about their threats and took one step toward the puppies…who then proceeded freak out like they were about to be torn to shreds.

Real tough, guys. But it’s okay. This cat is obviously a tactical mastermind.

The phrase, “Chill, dog” has never been so literal…or adorable.

Drowning Puppy Struggling To Stay Alive Is Rescued From A Sewage Tank

It’s not uncommon in India to see wells, drains, pits, and tanks of all types left open with no barrier or warning signs alerting passersby. More often than not, though, it’s animals who fall victim to these dangers.

Animal Aid Unlimited volunteers recently heard strange cries coming from an open septic tank. Knowing that something was stuck down there, they extended their camera behind a wall to see the source of the sounds. The images they captured were heartbreaking. A small puppy, too tired to keep swimming, kept dipping below the surface of a pool of human waste. The pup was moments away from drowning when they managed to get him out safely.

This Animal Shelter Is Encouraging Adoptions With Puppy Pajama Parties

No one can resist a cute dog dressed in pajamas, and volunteers from one shelter use that to their advantage.

The LifeLine Animal Project, a rescue group in Atlanta, has come up with an adorable way to get people interested in adopting their rescue dogs. They throw pajama parties with the pups!

The foolproof idea has been causing quite the buzz and dogs that had been waiting a long, long time to find their new families have now been adopted. Not only can visitors to the shelter have sleepovers on site, but they’re also allowed to take dogs home for overnight stays to form bonds. However, the overnight visits aren’t just tryouts for potential adopters. They’re also intended to give these dogs a break from the stressful shelter environment.

But at the end of the day, LifeLine hopes that these pajama parties will help people see the dogs’ true colors and understand the fact that all they want is a little love in return.

That’s it. I’m scrapping my Saturday night plans. I’ll be hosting a puppy sleepover instead.

She Was Just Out In Her Garage When She Came Face To Face With A Huge Bear

A Florida woman recently filmed her close encounter with a black bear, and even though these creatures are usually pretty docile, the footage is still harrowing.

Teliece Sander of Seminole County, Florida, was sitting in her driveway and playing games on her phone when she looked up and realized that a massive bear was approaching. Having heard that you should keep calm at all costs in these situations, she didn’t panic and sat there quietly, taking a picture of the large beast, which she then sent to her son. To the attachment, she added the words “help me.”

As the bear got closer, she realized that it seemed quite tame, so she did something that few people would ever have the courage to do. She caught the entire encounter on film.

Luckily for Teliece, this potentially deadly situation ended when her son, who is extremely tall and weighs 325 pounds, walked out of the house and scared the bear away with his presence.

These Adorable Orphaned Bears Are Really Enjoying Their Delicious, Appley Snacks

Feast your eyes upon these baby bears…enjoying a feast.

Shared by the Northern Lights Wildlife Society on Facebook, this video shows a group of black bear cubs relaxing and enjoying some tasty apples…and they aren’t the only relaxed ones. I never knew watching furry animals chomping down on treats could be so therapeutic.

The adorable short clip was posted by the animal orphanage to thank donors who have donated money or food to build a new bear enclosure.

Northern Lights is taking care of these orphaned cuties until they’re ready to be released back into the wild. In the 26 years since their foundation, the organization has helped rehabilitate more than 370 bears. These apple-snacking cubs (most of whom were orphaned due to vehicle collisions) will be released back into the wild in June of next year to sync with the timing they would naturally leave their mothers.

If you want to help Northern Lights Wildlife Society with their important work, then you can donate here.

Guilty Dogs Try Their Best To Hide The Fact That They Definitely Did Something Bad

You know what are the best? Videos of guilty dogs.

The pups in this video both look extremely guilty as their owner interrogates the two adorable suspects. The crime in question was a heinous one. Someone had the tenacity to ruin a perfectly good shoe.

While the two dogs, sitting side by side, both look like they might be responsible for the misdeed, the pit bull looks especially guilty. Starring sheepishly at the floor, the little guy does his best to avoid Dad’s gaze. He even went so far as to hide behind his brother’s back!

In the end, neither of these two cuties owned up to the crime. But personally, I think they were both in on it.

What These Kind People Are Doing For Thousands Of Stray Dogs Will Warm Your Heart

There are an estimated 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets of India.

With poorly lit roads, these pups often end up causing accidents or becoming roadkill.

To save strays from being mowed down by vehicles, a non-profit organization called Motopaws has come up with an initiative to fit as many dogs as possible with reflective collars made from donated denim. While it’s certainly not a solution to the stray problem, it goes a long way toward saving lives.

What an ingenious way to help these pups.

It’s not a bad idea for domestic dogs either! For those late-night walks around the block.

You can find out more information about Motopaws on their Facebook page.

Stampede Of Golden Retriever Puppies Tumble Down A Slide And Right Into Our Hearts

Training puppies can be hard work. Extremely adorable hard work. Especially when they’re fluffy, wriggly golden retriever puppies.

As a way to help socialize them, this litter of of golden puppies at Enchanted Retrievers are given an obstacle to tackle before their feeding time. The result is one adorable stampede that comes to a momentary halt as the puppies take turns going down a slide. Some even need a friendly nudge to make it to the bottom in time for dinner.

I just love how brave the first little puppy is. Diving head-first towards that delicious food bowl.

Weeee!
