RightThisMinute is known for airing animal rescue videos, but we recently saved a dog that eventually became one of our own. After finding the animal outside of the RTM studio, the dog was brought inside and was taken in by Pee Wee's Pals. RTM web producer Hayden Packwood adopted the dog, who is now known as Fenway. Hayden and Fenway joined the hosts on the set to discuss their new bond.

Business Owner Finds Cushy Retirements For Senior Stray Dogs

In shelters, these abandoned pooches usually have a shelf life of several weeks, but this Mode.com documentary profile argues that change is already here! When Muttville founder Sherri Franklin came face-to-face with the uncertain future facing elderly strays, she knew euthanasia wasn't the answer. Instead of cages, rescue pooches at the foundation roam, rest and play freely until Sherri and the Muttville team match them with humans willing and happy to give them the retirement they deserve.
