Kitten season is the time of year when cats give birth, flooding animal shelters and rescue groups across the nation with homeless litters… San Diego Humane Society’s Kitten Nursery cares for thousands of orphaned kittens every year. These neonatal kittens require 24-hour care that is unavailable anywhere else and before their kitten nursery program was established in 2008, kittens this young would be euthanized because of a lack of resources required to care for them.
Everyone loves a canine companion, and this baby elephant is no exception! The tiny pachyderm arrived at the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa after being rejected by his herd. Critically ill, the youngster had very little chance of survival. But thanks to round-the-clock care from sanctuary staff, and a bit of help from a special canine companion, the baby elephant is on the road to a full recovery.
An amazing rescue in the Gulf of Naples…The puppy had fallen by hydrofoil…the small dog was spotted and rescued by some sailors of the club Savoy…The puppy was brought on land where she could be reunited with her family, who had already reported her missing. Now she’s fine.

A deer doe abandoned one of her twin fawns, the fawn had injured its leg and could not keep up with the mother.
I do not support keeping wild animals as pets, but this was a special situation. The baby deer was healed and released back to her real mother.
Filmed in October, this heart warming footage shows Kiko, a one month old rescued giraffe, playing with fellow orphan Loboito – a boisterous three week old elephant calf. The pair are being cared for at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Orphanage in Nairobi National Park. Kiko, who was found abandoned in Kenya’s Meru National Park, sleeps with the baby elephants as he is too small to sleep in the giraffe stable.
