It's easy to assume life on the street is hardest on stray animals. They've got to scrounge up food, water and dodge traffic, right? The heartbreaking truth is that our loveable cats and dogs' worst enemy can also be their "best friend".

Volunteers from the Ilioupolis Animal Welfare Union in Greece stumbled upon little "Shiver" just in time. For weeks, this growing puppy had been continuously chained up to an abandoned trailer. As she grew, the suffocating wire restraints cut deeper and deeper into her infected and bleeding neck and legs. Her shocked rescuers quickly freed her and nursed her back to health before finding newly-named "Jade" a loving family in Holland.

Rescued Doggies Leap For Joy

Although the saying goes "an elephant never forgets", I think we'd all be kinder to animals if we knew just how much they remember!

We expect the folks at Animal Aid Unlimited, India have countless doggy friends because of their life-saving street rescues! Just a month after volunteers treat a stray nearly eaten alive with mange, we meet the same pooch... but this time, he's so delighted and healthy we almost don't recognize him! View Now

Rescuers Tear Up Sidewalk To Free 'Sewer Dog'

What wouldn't you do for a puppy in need? Demolishing a sidewalk, for one! Inches of concrete slab couldn't get between a crowd of Argentine rescuers and an Alsatian somehow squeezed into a storm drain in Bahia Blanca. They literally rip off the entire "roof" before they're eventually able to haul the frightened but thankful pooch to safety. This feel-good story's silver lining is that he's up for adoption—if you can spring for the ticket to South America, of course! View Now
