Some of those were quite touching and surprising! The picture of the rescued dogs in China surrounding one man was adorable and made me smile. Thanks for sharing! – Vanessa
Awww I’m definitely tearing up. All of these are amazingly touching, I wish I could know the backstory of each one.
I can tell you the backstory on #15! The tiny charity Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety was nearly destroyed in 2012 following massive flooding. This uncredited picture was taken by am Amazon CARES volunteer. See http://amazoncares.blogspot.com/2012/04/cares-in-jeopardy-due-to-record-high.html
have seen your blog its very nice, well design and very informatics, I am Also Travel Agent – Look India Hotel have lots of holiday tour packages & http://www.lookindiahotel.com
I don’t understand why everyone things the guy in #8 is great. If the dog is in that much pain or uncomfortable it needs to be put down. Stop being selfish.
Probably because he treats his animal as a family member, you don’t just go kill grandma cause she has a bad back do you?
When my dog was starting to have seizures and freaking out because she was Alzheimer-ee, I sure did. I had her from 3 weeks to 13 years old and it was the hardest thing I ever did. But it was the best thing for Her! He needs to let go for the dogs sake, just sick of seeing this pic as some guy (guy/girl) who is a hero, he is selfish.
Lighten up Eggston, I mean, you are making an assumption about the poor man, just because there’s a photo of him swimming with his dog. You don’t know the context. I happen to have a 13 year old dog with arthritis and we just give her her meds and she’s quite happy, you know, living.
I could make all kinds of assumptions about you, like maybe your vet told you the cost of your dog’s anti-seizure meds and you “decided” that it was your dog’s absolutely best interest to be put down, making you a cheap little @&$%, but it wouldn’t be fair, Would it? Well, it’s the same with this gentleman.
wow taking this awfully personal there sweetie, get back in the kitchen!
Hah, that was a really lame attempt at being condescending.
You sir, are an asshat.
Obviously a creeper.
So in addiction to being a hyper critical dick, you’re sexist too. Any takers, ladies?
What a cock.
Such a dick. Back the fk off and let ppl do whatever they want.
The dog in #8 is gone. He died last year. Here is an article about him: http://newsfeed.time.com/2013/07/19/schoep-the-arthritic-dog-made-famous-in-viral-photo-dies-at-age-20/
This is a ridiculous debate. I firmly believe what Eggston has said. If you love something you do not let it live in pain. You can call him whatever you want to. You can call me, whatever you want to. I believe in the humanitarian approach. I have had many dogs, and cats, and fish. I believe in helping them until the end. However, the end is always closer then we like it to be. I have seen many friend of mine go over hops and bounds, titanium hips etc. And guess what, they still die. Dying is a part of nature.It is how you live that makes a difference, And would I “kill” grandmother if she was in pain and dying for air? You damn well bet I would.
Further more I love my animals. You have no idea how much. Comparied an animal to a family member….ridiculous in so many ways. I can show my face Tyler, let us see if you can show yours.
So should I be put down because my legs hurt? Should anybody else I know that lives with pain? Should people at nursing homes be scared of you?
You left out the pet rat being given an oxygen mask by firefighters in 2007.
Awww! I never heard or seen that one! So touching!
awww that’s lovely!
The little girl who sold all of her stuffed animals was ADORABLE!
This blog made my day!
faith in humanity restored for today
The one of the police dog made me cry.
It made me cry too
Me too – that was the only one that hit me that way.
that was the worst one, they were about to kill it. stupid pigs
Pretty much the most moronic reaction – good job, troll.
me too . I love that he was saluted on his last journey
why don’t they retire them to a good home? that’s terrible -i’m shocked!
You know that when dogs get really old, their bodies start shutting down and they feel immense pain? So the humane thing to do is put them down before they start vomiting uncontrollably, or lose the use of their lungs or legs. Animals can’t understand those kinds of things. I’m hoping that if you do have older pets, they aren’t suffering in pain because you want to be comforted with ‘not killing’ them. Peace.
Does anyone have any info on #10? I have friends in brazil that would absolutely love to assist him with care and shelter.
Lots of dust in here tonight dammit. My allergies are really acting up.
Really loved that cute little girl Kiana. Many ppl have good hearts but few have a will strong enough.
You’re Israeli…the only thing that you find pleasure is murdering thousands of young Palestinian children.
The ignorance is strong in this one
Wow.. it feels like I am in a good place when I see acts of such kindness
Animal rescuers are wonderfu!
They are our true friends….far better than a human companion ( https://planmyad.com )
Im not even going to lie, I started crying after about the third picture
#25 died he died bout an hour after they saved him because of to much stress
knowing that really gets to me because I have a pet squirrel
Oh i love it http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/lamphuongduy1234/likes
I also cried when I saw the last photo of the Police Dog. How thoughtful of you to post it for us.
What a great collection…I love it <3
#7… Turkish dog at protest… how about… don’t bring your f^&*ng dog to a protest where it might get tear gas in the first place?
People are monkeys that wear clothes.
The photo #15 was taken by a volunteer for Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety in Iquitos, Peru! In 2012 our shelter was destroyed by massive flooding. Read the blog at http://amazoncares.blogspot.com/2012/04/cares-in-jeopardy-due-to-record-high.html. And please remember, tiny charities like Amazon CARES NEED YOUR SUPPORT! We wish that you had provided information or credit.
These pictures totally touch my feel

Amazing what lengths people will go to for their animals
Wow! That’s Amazing
not to ruin the mood but wouldn’t the dog in the bowl in #15 have just floated? I doubt the dog was that heavy. but this article is a +1 for humanity either way
The rat (25) are really made me emotional
These pictures made me cry, especially the one about the police dog! I remember reading the article about the police dog going for his last car ride before being put to sleep. :'( Has certainly restored my faith in humanity somewhat.
and this is how animals should be treated with care and love
this made me cry:(
Wtf!! The one of the little girl selling her stuff made cry
I cried too!!!
God bless the animals
I guess that old adage where saving a life, albeit that of an animal, still draws us inextricably toward exerting our humanity where helplessness is apparent. Each story was meritorious in that they showed instances of our ability to be compassionate and caring toward less fortunate creatures occupying this earthly with us. Even in that instance where the police dog was been led to what would certainly be its end. Without the full story one can’t really pass judgement. Although, that many officers offering up a salute does say something else apart from a rudimentary callous act being committed.
Do people not euthanize animals in pain anymore? I love my animals more than I ever thought it was possible, they sleep with me, they love me, I hold them and feel my heart burn with love, but if they are super old, in pain from their bodies shutting down, I’m not going to say ‘Well, I don’t want to kill them and feel bad, so I’ll just watch them waste away and cry.’
Oh i love it
Sometimes, just sometimes, a human being can emulate God.
