They Find An Exhausted Mother, But What’s Locked Inside The House Shocked Them All…

After hearing about an emaciated mother pit bull roaming the streets of New Orleans, the heroes of the Villalobos rescue team answered the call. When they located the pit bull, they realized she had either just had her puppies, or was currently nursing.

The second this starving, emaciated dog realized the team was there to help her, she ran over with her tail wagging. They immediately saw how kind, sweet, and ready to be loved she was!

Once Mama was in safe hands, the team began the desperate search for her pups. Mama eagerly led them to a nearby house. The truth behind her situation is downright awful.

As it turned out, Mama had been locked out of the house with her beloved babies inside. In the meantime, this starving pit bull was forced to roam the streets looking for help, sacrificing her own health in the process. Thank God the team found her when they did.

When Villalobos finally reunites her with her babies, surrounded by safety, I couldn’t help but cry. Now this is love.

Her Boyfriend Was Brutally Attacking Her. Now Watch What Her Dog Does.

Reportedly, as many as 40 percent of women who face domestic violence say they don’t leave abusive situations because they’re afraid to leave their pets behind. But one brave woman and survivor was able to turn her nightmare into a solution for other battered women.

One day, she was physically assaulted by her boyfriend at home. He began pulling at her clothing and straight through a wall, then began beating her. That’s when her courageous dog walked into the room.

Her 110-pound Great Dane named J. Matthew laid on top of her as she was brutally attacked with a hammer, taking the blows meant for her. The attacker eventually picked up the dog and led him to a busy intersection, leaving him there to die. In the meantime, the woman was able to escape. Authorities set her up at a nearby women’s shelter, called the Rose Brooks Center.

Though J. Matthew sustained broken bones, he survived the attack. However, the Rose Brooks Center had a no-pets policy. The woman was not about to leave her beloved dog and guardian angel behind, especially after the fact he sacrificed his body for her.

After hearing the woman’s story, the center did something incredible. The staff decided to break its own policy banning dogs, and allowed the woman to bring in J. Matthew and stay there. In 2012, the Rose Brooks Center became the first domestic violence shelter in the region to welcome four-legged family members. It unveiled its new pet kennel adjacent to the center — dedicated to J. Matthew and his mom.

The new pet policy helped save even more lives, prompting women to leave abusive situations and get the help they need.

Watch the video below, courtesy of the Rose Brooks Center, and hear from the survivor herself. She remains anonymous.

Their 3-Year-Old Girl Went Missing In The Woods. Now Watch What The Family Dog Does.

3-year-old Victoria wandered away from her home on a frigid February evening and got lost in the woods behind her house. The toddler thought her dog, Blue, went missing, and somehow she snuck outside to go find him.

The rural town of Cordes Lakes, AZ was shaken. For 15 hours, Search and Rescue teams scoured the area. Finally, a helicopter spotted Victoria lying in a dry creek bed. Blue was right there next to her.

As it turned out, Blue — a Queensland Heeler who had been with Victoria since she was born – stayed by Victoria’s side all night as the temperatures dropped below freezing.

When the medics arrived, they immediately noticed Blue was protecting her and wouldn't let strangers approach. But as soon as Victoria stood up and smiled, Blue relaxed and the two were sent up to safety in a helicopter.

Though she suffered from frostbite, Victoria’s family credited their faithful dog Blue with saving her life. The sheriff’s office spokesman said, “The dog kept her alert, warm and gave her companionship throughout a very cold night.”

We've seen the lengths our pets will go to to make sure we’re safe and sound, and Blue and Victoria will share a bond that lasts a lifetime. Their story goes down in history as one of the most awe-inspiring acts of canine heroism.

This Is One Of The Most Powerful Videos You Will Ever See, Just Make Sure You Watch It To The End

This powerful short film about adoption and abandonment is so hard-hitting that it really deserves a warning about what irresponsibility and cruelty can do to living beings. It is set to music, and is able to tell a story without any dialogue, that will stay with you forever.

It tells the story of a very normal looking family who adopt an adorable little red-haired girl. Over time she does “little girl” things like fighting with her older (not adopted) sister, spilling a drink, making messes, interrupting when parents are busy. We watch the parents get angry and less inclusive of this little girl. She grows more remote and sad, and acts out more. She has a stuffed doll whose insides she keeps pulling out. The symbolism is evident.

What happens next is the father takes her for a ride, and just when you think he is about to give her the attention she so sorely needs, the “Gift” (as the film is named) takes a very dark turn. It needs to be watched to the bitter end. I must say that I was shocked and really moved by this beautiful little film that manages, without words, to say everything there needs to be said about the responsibility of adopting both children and animals. We live in a society that has a throw-away mentality. We have short attention spans, and often don’t have the patience nor the commitment to deal with life when it becomes difficult.

This short film is truly a Gift that should be watched and watched again.
