Piglet becomes best friends with kitten

Master Julian has no idea that he is a pig. In fact, he thinks he's a cat! So of course he grew up with his best friend, Chairmen Meow, not realizing he looks any different than his feline friend. Full Story: According to Catherine Besch, co-founder of Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue, Julian is an ordinary farm pig. Yes, she loves him dearly but she promises all pigs are like Julian - intelligent, affectionate and a bit naughty. Cat saw Julian and his siblings on a motorbike heading to town to be raised and within 6 months slaughtered. When she saw the piglets, she knew she could only take 1 and she made the agonizing decision and picked Julian. Master Julian lives like a king. As a piglet, he slept with his human but his BFF was Chairman Meow a stubby tailed, orange and white tabby. The piglet and the kitten grew up together. One becoming proportionately larger than the other -- but size didn't matter for these two who are still best friends 1.5 years later. Today, Master Julian is 250 lbs and sleeps on the floor. His purpose in life is to educate the Vietnamese that animals have a name, a face and in this case can also be a friend. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue Website ➔ vietnampetsandvets.com Donate ➔ https://www.gofundme.com/hoianvet Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/vietnamanimalaidandrescue Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/vnanimalaid Instagram ➔ https://www.instagram.com/vietnamanimalaid/ ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music provided by Creative Commons Attribution music by Josh Woodward The song was not modified in any way.

Stray dog with 4 pound mass on neck gets life-saving surgery2m57s

Stray dog with 4 pound mass on neck gets life-saving surgery

Please note: This video may be graphic to some underage viewers. Agnes was found wandering the streets of Karditsa, Greece for 6 months with a massive growth on her neck. Greek Animal Rescue found her and provided her with the medical attention and loving home she needed. Full Story: For at least 6 months, Agnes, a 7 year old mixed-breed dog was living on the streets. Villagers in Karditsa, Greece have seen her for those 6 months: some have fed her, others have tried scaring her, chasing her away with sticks and firing guns. What everyone remembers most about Agnes was the large mass hanging from her neck. In fact, it was so large that it pulled her head down and made her ear hang at an abnormal angle. Likely, she was in constant pain. Finally, someone from the village called Greek Animal Rescue (GAR) in hopes of saving her. Ermioni and her team of rescuers went out at night and found Agnes. At first, Agnes was shy - wary of the rescuers. But when their intentions were clear, Agnes welcomed the help. She was taken to a local veterinarian where she was immediately treated. They discovered multiple gun shot wounds and additional tumors in her breasts. But the most important surgery for now would be the removal of the 4 lb tumor. When the tumor was removed, Agnes was able to lift her head and her ears immediately went back to their normal position. Within an additional three months and further surgeries, Agnes had recovered fully. The mass that had once weighed her down was gone. Today, Agnes is living in England with a family that loves her. She has siblings to play with and a yard to call her own. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Greek Animal Rescue Website ➔ http://greekanimalrescue.com/ Donate ➔ http://greekanimalrescue.com/helpanddonations Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/greekanimalrescue Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/GARanimalrescue ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee https://pawsitivestories.wordpress.com/ ✿ Music provided by Friday Morning Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Creative Commons Attribution music by Josh Woodward The song was not modified in any way.

Kitten With Twisted Arms and Legs Refuses to Give Up

Pretzel and her two siblings were dumped at the shelter within hours of their birth - still covered in amniotic fluid, umbilical cords still attached but Kitten Rescue of Los Angeles, CA refused to let them die. ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: "It looked like someone shook up kittens parts in a can." says Laura, Pretzel's foster at Kitten Rescue based in Los Angeles, CA. Pretzel and her two siblings were born and immediately dumped at a local LA shelter. Upon seeing them, it was it was apparent one of the reasons why. They were born with serious genetic abnormalities that made just living a challenge. On the outside, their arms and legs were twisted awkwardly in making walking, in the future, impossible. The problems on the inside were not immediately discernible until the first night when one of the kittens died. Within months, Curly Sue also died of a massive heart attack. Pretzel was the lone survivor. Her will to live was strong. Her personality was no different than any other cat. She didn't care that her legs were useless and she had to crawl to reach laps. What mattered was that she got there. Today, Pretzel is living in the perfect home with a perfect Mom. Pretzel is Michelle's first cat, but she loves Pretzel so unconditionally that she wouldn't have it any other way. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Kitten Rescue Website ➔ http://www.kittenrescue.org Donate ➔ http://www.kittenrescue.org/index.php/donate/ Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/kittenrescue Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/kittenrescue ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music provided by Premium Beats 12_full_united-we-can_0132.wav 201_full_colors-of-the-world_0172.wav Creative Commons Attribution music by Chris Zabriskie The song was not modified in any way.

Rescuers See What Is Wrapped Around Dog's Neck And Are Shocked3m35s

Rescuers See What Is Wrapped Around Dog's Neck And Are Shocked

[WARNING: This video is graphic and not suitable for young children.] Paris was found wandering the streets of Karditsa, Greece with a wire wrapped tightly around his neck - so tight in fact that it created an open wound, boring a hole into his trachea and prohibiting him from eating. Paris was rescued by Ermioni a rescuer from the Greek Animal Rescue (GAR), who finally got him the help he needed. #AdoptParis Paris stills needs a home. If you are interested in adopting Paris please contact Ermioni directly on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ermioni.gian... Full Story: Paris was only a puppy when someone put a wire around his neck. According to Ermioni, there have been instances in her town where strays or unwanted dogs are mistreated or abused. Paris was one of those dogs. When Ermioni found Paris, he was terrified of people. Paris was rushed to the vets where the wire was removed from his neck but an infection set in requiring a longer recovery. For two months, Ermioni and her GAR team of rescuers cared for Paris. When he finally received his surgery, he felt less pain and started to eat...and eat. The dog that was little more than “skin and bones” gained 20 kilos in a matter of months. There will be long lasting psychological effects of abuse he has had to endure, but with the gentle hands of Ermioni and the Greek Animal Rescue, he is recovering - one day at a time. Paris still needs a home. We are hoping with this video, we can appeal to someone somewhere in the world who will see Paris for who he truly is - a good boy that just wants someone to love him.

Mom Brings Home Dying Pup To Love On Until Death, But Dog Refused To Die 3m39s

Mom Brings Home Dying Pup To Love On Until Death, But Dog Refused To Die

Humanity does not know its boundaries. When daddy’s job was relocated, his family and he needed to follow. The mom Marry and her three daughters Abby, Anna, and Alaina needed to find themselves something to keep them busy, so they found a meaningful way to spend their time - volunteering at a shelter with 4,000 dogs in Ankara, Turkey. With so many rampant dog diseases, one of the most deadly is distemper, which causes neurological damage that leads to seizures and loss of coordination. Knowing that there was nothing to do for the dogs suffering from distemper, this family decided to act as a hospice for dogs. They took in dogs that were close to death, so that they could die in a decent peaceful place and not the overcrowded shelters. One day they decided to bring home a litter of sick and dying pups. Then a miracle happened - Faith, the smallest pup, survived. Several of the dogs they took in died shortly after, but at least it was in peace and with a loving family. There was one little girl dog named “Faith” that defied all of the odds. She was the littlest one, always in a corner, but this little puppy was a real fighter. Faith shocked her family and instead of getting weaker, she began to regain her strength and weight. After months of nurturing, Faith became a happy, healthy, and very loved pooch. Now Faith is an irreplaceable member of their family so they will bring her with them back in America. Watching Faith with her new family, it is obvious that they are a match made from heaven. #miracle #adopt Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Catch up with PAWsitive socially!

Breeder was going to throw out "defective" Mastiff puppy until this happens2m52s

Breeder was going to throw out "defective" Mastiff puppy until this happens

This Neapolitan Mastiff, a purebred 4 week old puppy was about to be thrown out like trash because she was deemed "defective" but 2nd Chances Rescue raced over to save her. Full Story: Willow was born with a congenital condition called Swimmer's Syndrome. The condition means Willow was unable to stand or walk at the normal three weeks of age. Instead, her chest was flat and her legs were splayed out like a turtle "swimming." For Willow's breeder, she was considered a defect and was about to throw her out like trash but by chance he first posted a message on social media. Somehow, this message was repeatedly shared until it reached Jennifer Williams, President at 2nd Chances Rescue in Norco, California. Jenn got in the car and drove to this breeder’s home where she saw 5 healthy Neapolitan Mastiff’s running and playing - and then saw Willow who was floundering on the ground unable to keep up. These “defective” dogs are often euthanized or abandoned. Willow was in such a severe state that she could not eat or drink. Jenn immediately took Willow to Animal Acuscope Therapist, Gina Gould. Within two days, Willow took her first steps. Within months, she was running. Using a combination of binding her chest, tying her legs in the correct position, acuscope therapy and swimming, Willow has made a complete recovery. Today, eight months later, Willow is 80 lbs., rambunctious, happy and healthy. Note: A Neapolitan Mastiff puppy sells for $1,000 on the low end. From a reputable breeder, Mastiff puppies can sell as high as $3,000.

Baby goat blinded and orphaned when inexperienced farmers ripped her from womb

Even these kids need our help. #babygoats #SoledadFarm Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss an episode! http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: Hope's mother (a nanny) and Hope were brought to the Sanctuary at Soledad Goats just 23 hours after her birth. It was a difficult birth. The untrained owners had not taken the nanny to get medical attention and conducted an internal examination on their own - rupturing and ripping her uterus. The baby's umbilical cord broke off and amniotic fluid burned her eyes. When Hope was finally born the owners could not understand why she wasn't looking at them. The answer was simple, she could not see them. Hope's mother died from the birth so her kid was left alone. Julian and Carol of Sanctuary at Soledad Goats in Mojave, California took her into their home. Literally. Carol slept with Hope, fed her and spoiled her. She refuses to eat regular goat food. Instead she lives on all kinds of delicious food like 4 pounds of grapes a week! Today, Hope has learned how to navigate using her sense of sound and remarkably does very well. She climbs stairs, walks around well, even has made a four-legged friend or two. Sanctuary at Soledad Goats is renown for their cheeses and are now accepting online orders for their all new plant-based vegan cheeses.

A wartime hero needs a hero of her own

Every servicemen goes through so much to protect our lives and liberties that sometimes we forget that they need saving too. Support our heroes tweet this video #WarriorWednesday #PTSDAwareness PAWsitive Channel and Tender Loving Canines team up to bring this story of a true hero this Veterans Day. Retired Major NC USAF Linda Stanley served over 20 years in the military – six years in the Army and 14 years in the Air Force as a nurse. Linda deployed in 2006 with the 32nd Medical Group to Balad, Iraq, where she was a trauma nurse and provided medical care to many severely injured service members. Linda saw the worst conditions imaginable and it was the “human side” of war that affected her most. At work, she had a soldier’s grit but over time she developed PTSD. Her anxieties made it difficult for her to go out in the world and to sleep. When therapy wasn't enough, Linda was introduced to TLC, a non-profit that pairs service members with Service Dogs. Willow is a yellow Labrador who had spent her entire life training to help people like Linda. In Willow, Linda found her hero. Finally, Linda was able to live again, smile again and find happiness again. Today, Linda has turned her experiences with PTSD into a mission to help other fellow service members.

7 dogs destined for the dog meat market in Korea take first steps of freedom in America5m16s

7 dogs destined for the dog meat market in Korea take first steps of freedom in America

Seven incredibly fortunate dogs were destined for the dog meat market in Korea when Aniband, an animal rescue based in Korea, saved their lives by sending them to America, where all seven found loving homes. PAWsitive Channel, Aniband and Doggie Protective Services team up to bring an emotional story of seven dogs -- each one of them was slated for death in the legal, dog meat market of South Korea. Some of the dogs were owner surrendered, abandoned, found as strays or were bred as meat. Aniband wants to bring to light this serious subject that not all Koreans agree with in hopes of putting an end to this trade. Aniband paid for the freedom of almost all of the dogs featured in this video -- some straight from the trucks headed to market. The dogs are then put into foster homes where they are provided a warm home and medical care. Once fit for travel, they are sent to America, where Doggie Protective Services finds them a home. Each rescue from beginning to end costs time and hundreds upon thousands of dollars. Today, Aniband and Doggie Protect Services (DPS) continue their mission, even with limited resources. A freedom flight lands every month with dogs that would have otherwise died. To date, their efforts have saved a hundred dogs with hundreds more awaiting their first steps of freedom. Aniband means - animals and humans are bonded together in one band. Aniband on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Aniband-Resc...

Laura took one look at Sophie's picture and knew she had to save her. But how? She lived in Nashville, Tennessee, and Sophie was in Downey, California over 2,000 miles away! Join Sophie's Village and help her pay off the last $275 on her bill. Together we can do anything! Call Santa Margarita Animal Care Center and tell them you'd like to donate to "Sophie's Village" (949) 858-3181 Full Story: There are incredible people living among us. People who are truly selfless and have a passion for animals. Laura is one such person. Laura who lives in Nashville, Tennessee was reading a story online about a small terrier that was hit by a car in Downey, California and left to die in the gutter when a Good Samaritan picked her up and took her to the animal shelter. Sophie was in bad shape. She had multiple pelvis fractures - she was in pain and unable to walk. Knowing that her time was limited and euthanasia was quickly becoming a reality at the understaffed and underfunded animal shelter, Laura started a mission to save her. For days Laura called, emailed, faxed over 50 animal rescues in California pleading for assistance. Not one rescue responded. Why would they when the medical care for Sophie alone would cost thousands? Many rescues themselves are consistently overwhelmed and underfunded. But one rescue saw Laura's cry for help and did call back - Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association. Janet located in California went to pick up Sophie and rushed her to the Santa Margarita Animal Care Center in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. Sophie immediately went into surgery to repair her crushed pelvis. Within weeks post-op, Sophie is not only walking - she's running. And Janet, the woman who pulled Sophie from the shelter, fostered her, ended up being her mom too. The battered and bruised terrier that was run over, left in the gutter alone now has a new family to love her and an entire village supporting her too!

Rescuer Thinks She Saved 1 Dog, Unknowingly Saves 6

A rescuer thinks she's saving one dog - an abandoned, white German Shepherd with a severe case of mange when in fact she is saving six - her five pups that are yet to be born. Full Story: Gemma had a severe, but treatable case of Demodectic Mange that covered 70% of her body. Instead of taking her to the vet, her family dropped her off at the shelter. Gemma was clearly in pain. A volunteer at the shelter, Jolene, knew she had to do something. Jolene, also an adoption counselor at St. Bonnie's Sanctuary (a part of Lange Foundation,) an animal rescue based in Canyon Country, took in Gemma and immediately started treatment for her condition. Already having a relationship with Gemma, Jolene took on the nearly 24 hour care of meds and baths. Within weeks, she was clearly healing. Her fur was growing back and she was putting on weight. A little too much weight. Jolene found out soon enough that Gemma was pregnant and had been pregnant even before she left the shelter. Gemma gave birth to 5 healthy puppies. The puppies were adopted while Gemma had to continue her treatment for mange. But soon enough, Gemma found her perfect home too. Special thanks to Lange Foundation and St. Bonnie's Sanctuary.
