Animals do so much for us...what have you done for them? 249 People

    Right Next Door

    Yeah, I live next to a retired guy who runs a puppy mill. I want to get rid of it for many reasons. Mainly it is cruel to the dogs, but I can smell the urine from my front yard some days, and the barking keeps me up on other times. Anyone know how to LEGALLY get rid of it? This...

    Hopefully I'll Save Many More In Later Years.

     I've saved a few animals. I've found and cared for baby squirrels twice. One fell from our attic into our utility closet, and the other fell from the nest and impaled himself on our fence. I've saved many a caterpillar from my dorm room freshman year. I was silly about it...

    This summer (2011), my family and I found a kitten. We were leaving to go to a penny social and were running a little behind, when we heard mewing in the bushes near my house. My mom and me started mewing hoping to lure the kitten out. It worked the next thing we knew the kitten...

    A Few, Actually

    A few years ago, when I was at Sea World, there was a sea creature petting thing. Some baby threw a starfish back into the water and it landed in the very deep part upside down. The lady said that if it didn't turn over in a few hours, it could die, so I decided to help it out...

    As I Write This..

    I'm holding a cuddly puppy rescued from the animal shelter on his "last day."  He's not mine for keeps--I'm a foster mom for shelter dogs.  It's always incredibly hard saying goodbye, but this helps homeless animals find families and allows me to help as many...

    It Started With a Buzzard

    I think the first animal i saved was a buzzard that had flown into telegraph cables by a road. When I found him he was on the tarmac, all crouched into a little ball. I used a small blanket to cover him to avoid getting too close to his beak or talons, and got him into a car and...
