Not every pet pairing is a great match. If you’re considering introducing a kitten or puppy into a house with an older dog or cat, here’s what you need to know.
Have you ever added a younger pet to your family when you had a senior already? How did it work out?
Melissa Maher re-enlisted in the army after the 9/11 attacks. She came home from Iraq with such severe depression and PTSD that she couldn’t leave the house. Then this mother of six met Chauncey, a service dog rescued from a shelter and trained by K9s For Warriors.
Find out how he’s helped her as we remember 9/11 today!
12-year-old Elizabeth Mahan has to be one of the smartest, bravest little girls I’ve ever heard of! She saved her brothers and the family dog from their burning home in Bellevue, NE, before calling 911.
“She did the textbook perfect thing," Bellevue Fire Battalion Chief Joe Gibilisco told WOWT 6 News. “That 12-year-old girl acted better than a lot of adults do.”
So proud of you, Elizabeth! You and your family are in my prayers!
I was sickened when I heard that someone had injected a tiny kitten with heroin, but thankful for the the quick thinking of Dr. Jennifer Magilton.
She saved the kitten’s life by treating him with a medicine that counteracts the effects of opiods.
The monster who abused the kitten is in custody, and the kitten and his veterinarians are in my prayers!
When the Fort Worth Police Department found a litter of motherless kittens in a parking lot, they brought them back to the station to care for. This is Officer Johnson, taking his turn bottle-feeding one of the babies. The police will be finding homes for the kittens when they are old enough. Let’s thank these officers for protecting these tiny lives!
We had eight years of happiness… until our human lost his housing and couldn’t keep us anymore.
We’re Mama Callie and Son Binx, and fortunately he brought us back to DAWS: Danbury Animal Welfare Society in Danbury, CT, where we came from. But we’re shy and scared here in the shelter, and only want someone to take us both to a new family where we can be happy again!
We hope you’ll help us… we promise to love you quietly, warmly, and forever!

CANTON: Animal abuse is often the first visible sign a family is living with the threat of domestic violence.
Did you know more than 70 percent of women who enter a shelter report their abuser has hurt, killed or threatened the family pet? Peace for Pets is an Ohio-based rescue group that offers safe haven to the pets of people fleeing domestic violence.
