Hi Lynn and Ariel. Glad you enjoyed the fawn rescue, Lynn. It was a joyous event for all!

Ariel - the first two videos said: "This video contains content from National Geographic, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

Sheesh! I'm an outcast! BUT, the 3rd video was SUPER! That woman has really devoted her life to these cats and they have the freedom of the outdoors. All her helpers are amazing as well; without them she would certainly find things difficult. I really got into the video and looked into all those cat eyes. Poor babes, just dropped off - but better there than on the side of a road in the middle of nowhere.

I LOVE THE LAST BIT where she asks some woman "...will you never again adopt another animal as long as you live?!" Gutsy Woman! Thanks, Ariel. I really enjoyed it.

What wonderful, heartwarming stories, Cheryl. I love the little fawn who quickly ran after his mama to nurse, right after his rescue. So cute!  Thanks for posting these amazing stories.

I got this from a friend -  another example of "Mankind at It's Best!"

On the morning of May 18, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that appeared to be frantically looking for something in the rocks that form a wall on our property line in Brush Prairie, WA. 

When we first went out with our neighbors, we didn't see anything, but the doe wouldn't leave our yard. We went back inside our house and watched; after a few minutes she returned.

We went outside to investigate the area on which she was focusing and could hear a baby fawn crying in the rocks. We moved some of the rocks and smaller boulders and saw the face of the baby fawn down in the rocks. It had apparently fallen into one of the gaps and was now trapped. The larger boulders were too heavy to move, and we didn't want the rocks to cave in on bambi. 

We called our Clark County Fire District #3. The B Shift team came out and with the Jaws of Life they were able to move the larger rocks out of the way enough to reach in, pull the baby fawn out and reunite it with its mama. The fawn, perhaps stuck in there most of the night, quickly went to nurse.

I edited the video into this short clip and after sharing it with some friends they felt it was just too cute not to share with more people . . .  Enjoy.

Lucky aka Lil Moo

My husband was driving down a busy main street when the car ahead of him threw an approx. 8 wk old kitten out of the moving car window. Lucky had a scrape on her face where she landed on it but otherwise was just shaken up.

She has lived with us since and she is one of our family. Not sure what would posess a person to do such a thing but she is a very happy kitty now.

She is almost 2 yrs old and a perfect fit into my family. She has a black patch on her side that is in the shape of a heart with white hairs going down the center forming a broken heart and one just like it on her other side without the white hairs forming a solid heart. One for each home.

My note: How perfect it was these wonderful people were behind the car when such an abusive act on a little kitten took place. Coincidental? I think not.

Sophia aka Opie


"In 2005 we adopted a little chocolate Chihuahua named Sophie. She had been abused by her breeder to a point that she was permanently scarred from having scalding water poured on her because she barked at the wrong time. She was saved from being beaten to death when a neigbor heard the screams of her brother being beaten to death. The breeder was convicted of 20 counts of animal cruelty.

She was an amazing dog who despite all that she had been thru still loved people and brought so much joy to our lives. She pasted away this year at the age of 11 yrs old. She had Congestive Heart Failure and died in my arms knowing she was loved. I know in my heart that the last 6 yrs of her life were as wonderful as she was.

Forever Soulmate's........


Where do I begin...I guess i'll start with the happiest and most blessed day of my life! 17 years ago I was greeted by the most handsome creature that God had ever created,my Tony. Although Tony's life before me had been quite difficult we both knew that we had just been made for each other.

It so happened that after being found, a good samaritan brought him to the local shelter. He was then rescued just in the nick of time(before his time would be up) by a non-kill shelter rather close by me. This is where we first met. I would later find out that the original shelter he was brought to happened to be in the neighborhood in which I grew up and had recently moved from. Some would say "ironic", I just say "fate"!

I am blessed beyond what my words could EVER express to have the love of my life, Tony, 17 healthy young years later and still be my partner in life. I truly believe that he is my forever soulmate! I cannot thank non-kill shelters enough such as Rescue Ink-Located in New York City,NY.,USA for giving my everything(Tony) a chance to find our home.

It is NEVER too late for God's creatures to find their forever home. As Tony and myself strongly believe that there is an angel out there for everyone,they just have to find each other!
