Jackass Junction a 67 acre donkey sanctuary in Marengo, Ohio has a 10 day old baby donkey named Ivy. The owner of the rescue sings her to sleep.

Loving licks.

A dairy farm in the Ukraine found out that their kitty loves to be cleaned by the cows. Amazing.

We have so many rescues that have been taken in when they are eight simply because they are perceived to be unadoptable. Augie was adopted at 14 years of age. She is now 20! Go Augie.

“A Tennessee dog is proving that age is just a number.

August, or “Augie,” as she is affectionately called, turned 20 on April 24, making her the oldest living golden retriever in history, according to GoldHeart Golden Retrievers Rescue.

August lives in Oakland, Tenn. with her humans, Jennifer and Steve, who she’s lived with since she was 14, according to GoldHeart.

You can read more about August’s story here.”

According to the shelter, sometimes an extra strand of DNA is found in a male cat, making it “XXY,” which is extremely rare. SPCA cited a study by the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine that says only about 1 in 3,000 of calico/tortoiseshell cats are male!

Covid19 lockdown months passed without seeing his beloved pet donkey, Baldomera.   This is a BFF if ever there was one, just ask Ismael Fernández.

lmagine knowing that Fido can come to the rescue in a heartbeat…Tania Butler, of Waikato, New Zealand, has trained her Boxer “Pixie” to perform CPR. Apparently the lockdown was good for something.  Pixie has been taught to pound / pounce on her chest when she is unresponsive and lying motionless on the ground.  Talk about making good use of your time, lockdown or not.  Kudos to Pixie!
