    Love My Booky Bear

    I adopted a shepherd/sharpei mix from the pound a couple days after christmas last year. he was for my 7 year old son, but he's become like my second son! I love him so much, even though he's eaten 8 pairs of shoes, gotten into the trash dozens of times, and barks his lungs out...

    A Poor Kitten

    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...

    I saw a cat walking around with a plastic

    pickle jar over his/her head, not sure if someone did that to em or if the cat did it themselves but I followed the cat into the woods and pulled it off to save them.

    Many, In Fact :)

    Let's see, just recently there was a baby bird...and by baby, I mean, only feather "fuzz". A little baby robin. Sad to say my attempt to let him fly free from my hands someday failed, as he did not make it past day three. On a lighter note, a squirrel with MUCH better luck than...

    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...

    Paralyzed In Shock

    I was 16 and home alone on a rare day without the combined responsibilities of work, school and athletics; it was a beautiful, clear day and the back door was open to let in the fresh spring air.  Suddenly I heard a thump and a splash outside in the back yard and looked out to...

    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...

    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...

    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...
