@Vicky Fuller posted this of all of these amazing animals that people didn't give up on but instead helped. I wanted to add to it. The bottom photo is one I took in South Padre at Sea Turtle Inc. of Allison. She has only 1 flipper because of a predator attack. Her harness is a prosthetic rear flipper.
This is an amazing story. They paid thousands of dollars to save a truck load of puppies who were on their way to the slaughter house. After they were rescued, Ms. Ha took them to play at the park. : ' ) Restores faith in humanity!
AMAZING - Koko, the Stanford-educated gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in American Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. As Esquire reported, when Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off!
Naki'o is the world's first dog to be fitted with a complete set of bionic paws. They work naturally to allow him to run, jump and play like any other dog. Naki'o lost his paws to frostbite as a puppy after he was abandoned in the Nebraska winter by his owners. He was adopted by vet technician Christie Tomlinson. As he grew, Naki'o had difficulty getting around on his stubs, resorting to crawling on his stomach. So last year Tomlinson decided to get him prosthetics. Click to view video.
