10 Good Samaritans Refuse to Let 300 Homeless Dogs Starve and Freeze to Death2m19s

10 Good Samaritans Refuse to Let 300 Homeless Dogs Starve and Freeze to Death

These 10 animal rescuers may have saved hundreds of street dogs but they also inspired villagers, businesses and the municipality to make a difference too. That's what I call true heroes! #adoptdontshop #rescue ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: In Ankara, Turkey adoption rates are low. People prefer to buy dogs instead of adopting them. (Çiğdemin Patileri is a Facebook page that posts about street animals in the Çiğdem neighborhood.) The make shift rescue, created by a group of people with a shared passion for animals is only 10 people. But these 10 people take care of 300 dogs and cats on a daily basis. They are feeding them, providing medical attention, sterilization, trying to find homes, even going to schools to educate students about animal rescue and welfare. They are working to make a difference in the community. They are fighting to be heard. And they have been heard. Their work has received attention as local businesses and the municipality have donated their time and efforts in creating shelters for dogs and cats. Locals are taking to helping with feeding the strays too but the group is committed to making sure every last dog in Turkey finds a home. Burcu, one of the rescuers, believes their greatest need is for a clear infrastructure when it comes to strays that just end up on the streets or in the overcrowded shelters. They also more assistance, especially with regards to spaying or neutering in their neighborhood. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter Instagram ➔ https://www.instagram.com/pawsitivechannel/ ✿ See how you can help Burcu save more cats like Leo by emailing her here: bh.burcu@gmail.com ✿ Follow Burcu and her rescue Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/CigdeminPatileri/ ✿ Crew http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music Purchased through Premium Beat - https://www.premiumbeat.com/

Everyone Thought This Great Dane Was Neglected, The Truth Will Shock You.3m00s

Everyone Thought This Great Dane Was Neglected, The Truth Will Shock You.

When Darla, a large Great Dane, came to Adoptadane Rescue Queensland, nearly her entire body was bleeding and covered in seemingly open sores. Everyone thought it was neglect, but the truth was even worse. ✿ Support Adoptadane Rescue Queensland ➔ https://www.paypal.me/adoptadanerescue ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter Instagram ➔ https://www.instagram.com/pawsitivechannel/ ✿ Crew http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music Purchased through Premium Beat - https://www.premiumbeat.com/ "Prelude No.6" by Chris Zabriskie Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License The song was not modified in any way.

Full Story: Darla was only 2yrs old when she was brought to Adoptadane Rescue Queensland. She was suffering from a common, highly treatable skin condition called demodectic mange, which had covered a large percentage of her body. In what looked like a severe case of neglect, was actually unfounded. Darla's previous owners loved her very much, this was not a case of neglect, more misdiagnoses from the vets she had attended. In fact, Darla's family had gone to multiple vets for a second opinion. Unable to get the right diagnosis and treatment, Darla's health worsened. Eventually, veterinarians told her family that she would need to be "put down." Loving her too much, they reached out to Adoptadane for help. Feeling responsible and guilty for her condition, they relinquished her to the rescue asking them to save her. They did. For 6 months, Darla went without proper treatment, her health deteriorating. Within 2 months of treatment of salves, baths, medications, Darla had fully recovered and was adoptable. In fact, soon after she was deemed healthy, she was adopted by Terri who loved her until Darla's recent passing in late 2016.

Adorable Dancing Teacup Chihuahua Puppy Is Not Dancing At All2m42s

Adorable Dancing Teacup Chihuahua Puppy Is Not Dancing At All

Boogie Shoes, the cutest Teacup Chihuahua, always looks like he's dancing, hence the name, but he's actually shaking uncontrollably from a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. The dog was turned into the shelter at 8 weeks old. The woman who dropped him off claimed to have found him in the WalMart parking lot in 110 degree heat in Palm Springs, California. While that may be true, the region is also known for back yard breeders. The shelter that the dog was dropped off at was Palm Spring Animal Shelter. Fortunately, it was a no-kill facility that works hard to rehabilitate and re-home even special needs dog. At first, it seemed this cute 8 week old pup was dancing, but the reality was much worse. He was shaking - his motor skills and coordination were uncontrolled. It was clear to the doctors their that he had an unknown neurological condition. For now, he was on foster watch. Alicia became his foster and eventually his adopter. Alicia took took the dog to the neurologist who confirmed their fears. He had cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition in which the cerebellum or part of the brain did not fully develop in-utero. This condition could have been caused by genetics, a virus or malnutrition. The condition reveals itself at about six weeks of age and is permanent. While Boogie is otherwise a healthy pup, he will always have physical limitations. He can't walk on a leash, play catch or climb stairs. Even with these limitations, Alicia loves him just as he is. Please share this your family and friends as it is one that no one should miss!

It is a sad truth that so many animals live day in and day out without much hope. But what do you consider a sad life that truly turns around? We think that qualifies as a miracle, don’t you? The odds were against Kanya and her siblings, who were living on the streets of Thailand. They were going through the trash for food, threatened by starvation, disease, cars and being picked up and transported to the dog meat trade. Good Samaritans found Kanya and her nine siblings, cared for them and through generous donations from K9 Aid and LIFE Animal Rescue, the Thai litter of puppies took a 17-hours-long flight to the United States, where they will no longer face such a horrible fate. Here, Kanya’s once sad life will turn into a happy one, with a new family and lots of love! She doesn’t know it yet… Even though one step closer to freedom and love, Kanya is still a bit scared, but hopeful. But soon, for Kanya, this is what true happiness looks like! With her new forever family, safe and sound, Kanya is living the good life! It doesn’t get much better than this!

Find more of Chris's music here: http://chriszabriskie.com/ To see the full Creative Commons License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b... ✿ Full Story by Gina, Animal Therapist and Acuscope Biotechnician This is the story of an amazing journey with one of the most beautiful pups I have ever fallen in love with. I received a phone call from Coastal German Shepard Rescue telling me that there was a “Swimmer Pup” who was going to be euthanized unless we got to him in time. They asked me to please hurry, pick him up, and begin treatment right away. Upon seeing the little white bundle of fur, my heart just ached to get him in my arms and to safety. I held him the whole ride home. He was so still, so quiet...I was concerned that maybe he was also deaf. This little puppy had the most amazing blue eyes I had ever seen. Once we were home, I began calling the little bundle “Baby.” Baby was so still, so quiet...first thing to do was to give him a feeding of canned puppy food mixed with goat’s milk. He was a very slow eater, not a good sign. Again, he was just so still. I immediately cleaned Baby and wrapped his chest and shoulders in a soft tee shirt wrap. I made him a nice soft, warm bed surrounded by small stuffed animal toys and laid his tiny body on his side, propped up with the soft toys. He immediately looked more comfortable. I slept beside him on the couch that night in case he needed me. Once at the Vet’s office, Baby was still so quiet, I held him close. the vet came in and assessed my little bundle. He had concern written all over his face. He told me we usually euthanize puppies with Swimmers Syndrome. I said “I know.” They can’t lift up off their chest, their legs remain splayed out to the side; and they can’t lift their head off the ground. His diagnosis was that his heart was weak, his pulse was faint. He was limp and lethargic. Not a good prospect for survival. He told me I can “try” my treatments and also suggested massage. He said that maybe in 3 months he may walk; but chances are he won't . . . if he survives. I immediately thought to myself “//I will see you in 10 days” ... although I didn't say this out loud. I took Baby home and started his Acuscope Sessions right away. Low and behold! He awoke the next morning “speaking” to me...wiggling his little body even trying to lift his limbs. I just know he was asking me ..."More please...More please I feel so much better . . . I'm alive, I'm here and I'm alive! Please don't give up on me." More Acuscope Therapy Sessions were in store for that day. Yes, I began his Therapy in the morning after we came home from the Vet visit. I did a series of Acuscope Treatments to promote nerve conductivity where the nerve signals emerge from between the Vertebrae along the Spine. I attached plates to treat the back from top to bottom. Each day there is more improvement, more movement, strength and activity. It really is amazing to witness how fast a little body responds once the nerve and muscle cells are given the help they need to awaken. Casper’s journey continues. I have decided to name him Casper...for Casper the friendly ghost. He is pure white, and absolutely stunning. So beautiful. He is active now, “speaking” a lot, communicating his joy of being able to move. He was adopted shortly after this last video by a wonderful young man. We have become email friends and Instagram friends so I can follow Casper’s progress through pictures. I am also invited to visit him when I am in town. It doesn't get much better than this. Changing a pup’s life forever. Finding him his “forever home” and watching him grow and thrive and become a happy, healthy, loving companion. ***All people, locations, photos, footage and logos have been used with express written consent from all parties.***

Dog Left in Backyard to Die Rescued Just In Time2m59s

Dog Left in Backyard to Die Rescued Just In Time

Smokey's story is about a dog that was left in a backyard to slowly die from starvation and one woman who showed true heroism by dropping everything to save him. Full Story: PAWsitive Channel and Forte Animal Rescue team up to bring this inspirational story of heroism. Darlene was getting a manicure from her usual nail technician – a woman she liked and had been visiting for years. The woman told her about her son's unwanted puppy, a dog he refused to provide food, water and shelter. Darlene assumed the technician was feeding the dog when in fact Smokey was slowly being starved to death. The manicurist finally confessed that she wanted to “put the dog down" but didn't want to pay the $200 fee to do so. Darlene, an animal lover not an animal rescuer, requested a photo of the Smokey. What she saw was an emaciated, sad dog. “Something out of a concentration camp." Darlene dropped everything and went to the technician’s home where she found Smokey, who was barely able to walk and unable to even eat the food she offered. She dropped some unkind remarks to the son who couldn't care less. When Smokey was brought to the animal hospital, he was immediately put on an IV drip where he was given round the clock fluids and proper food. His blood work showed food deprivation that spanned weeks, possibly months. His digestive system was in shock. Within a month, Smokey had gained 20 lbs, going from 40 lbs to 60lbs. Forte Animal Rescue a 501 (c)(3) based in Marina del Rey, California stepped in to help Darlene with the hospital care and bills as well as to re-home Smokey. His vet bills amounted to thousands of dollars of which Darlene and the rescue took care of. Today, not even a year later, Smokey is recovered and lives in Los Angeles with a wonderful family. He is fed. He is loved. He is home.
