Firefighters responded to a blaze that was consuming a warehouse in an industrial area in Houston. While they were busy, a dog named Rocky bolted from the building with burns covering his body. The following day, volunteers gathered to search the ruins for animals. A homeless man was asking for help – not for himself, but for Rocky, the boxer who had survived the inferno. He had found the frightened and injured dog beneath a car, and took him in, sharing his food and blanket with him.
Five weeks after being dragged behind his owner’s SUV, Gotti is healing well and ready for a new home. In early October his owner Daniel Delaney Jr., who was jailed on an animal-cruelty charge following the incident, drove away with poor Gotti tied to the back of his vehicle. He claims he forgot that the dog was tied up and expressed remorse for his actions but has been in jail ever since, unable to post bail.
Hold up, pet lion! In 1983 Tippi Hendren established the Shambala Preserve in California’s Mojave Desert, a wildlife sanctuary for lions and tigers. This lions name is Togar. He was brought to the sanctuary but had never been around any other lions. He had to live with humans or be put down. His teeth were pulled before he was brought to the sanctuary. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone. I adore this.
