WARNING! THESE PICTURES ARE GRAPHIC! This sweet girl was brought into our shelter today with 7 puppies and 3 chickens, the owner noticed the chain was cutting the dogs head off so she then put it around her waist so she couldn’t run away. The 7 puppies where locked in a chicken coop with the chickens and are covered with ringworm and having missing legs and paws because the chickens were eating them piece by piece! We can hold them until tomorrow, but due to their conditions we CANNOT hold them any longer! PLEASE HELP THEM! 337-394-1220

Wonderful story: “Scamp, a former stray dog, saved the lives of six kittens that were trapped inside a cardboard box in the middle of the garbage in a square in Brazil. On hearing the mewing of the kittens, Scamp broke the box, pulled them out one by one and took them home. Having already experienced abandonment and a difficult life on the street, the rogue took them with him with the certainty that they would be saved in the same way he was saved one day”

Some time ago Panchita was caught up in a net, which left deep cuts all over her body. She managed to make it to this hotel where animal advocates nursed her back to health for 3 months. Every day she returns to rest after being out to sea. She is now pregnant and expecting within a month.

Look At This Resilient Dog of the Day: A Welsh Corgi named Ole, who managed to survive the avalanche that killed one of his owners, surprised his family by showing up four days later at their motel room in Cooke City, Montana.
“I just saw it outside sitting by the room, which is pretty amazing,” said avalanche specialist Mark Staples.
Dave Gaillard of Bozeman was killed after being buried by an avalanche southeast of town in Hayden Creek. His wife Kerry managed to escape by clinging to a tree.
“His last words to me were, ‘Retreat to the trees.’ I think he saw what was coming from above, that I did not see. That reflects Dave’s amazing quality — thinking of others,” she told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
Ole was believed to have been buried under the snow as well, but must have tunneled his way out. Still, the trek back to Cooke City was likely treacherous, with temperatures below freezing, and deep snow that would be taxing for the dog’s short legs.
“How in the world he made it, I don’t know,” said Kay Whittle, the wife of a local businessman who returned the pup to his family. “If he could just talk — who knows what he did from the day of the avalanche until today?”
