Any animal advocate would say that Mr. Russ Miller and Ciro Silvestri were heroes. Although he is truly humble about his heroic act of saving a pitbull dog from a terrible situation, Miller deserves incredible accolades, as does Silvestri. Some people are actually calling the dog named Duke the “luckiest dog in Trenton, New Jersey.”
The story goes like this: Duke was missing for days. On one of those days, Mr. Miller and Mr. Silvestri saw the dog deserted in the center of the Delaware River which was covered in ice. The men immediately phoned the fire department and the response was truly appalling. (more…)
The residents of the St. Louis MO area refused to give up on an abandoned Pit Bull who was stuck in a dark and cold wet sewer for four full days and nights, according to PawNation. It was reported that animal control officers gave up on the animal because they were only “scaring him further.” They said he could leave at any point and stopped their rescue efforts. Locals were not going to accept that.
After the dog’s loud cries got the local’s attention, they fed him and looked in on him until they could figure out a way to get him out of the sewer. That is when they were shot down by animal control. (more…)

If you live in Lake County California or in the surrounding areas, there are plenty of animal rescue organizations who are urging people to come and find their newest member to their family. There are many dogs locked in kennels that would rather be in warm comfortable homes!

This might be a story you have to see to believe as it shows the unconditional love that animals can show to other species of animals. While people were out celebrating the 4th of July weekend, a small black Chihuahua was abandoned outside the Terrell Animal Shelter that was closed for the holiday. The dog was not alone, though. She was nursing two very tiny kittens. The three animals were rescued by police officer, Steve Johns with the Terrell Police Department. (more…)
