The "Great Outdoors" makes a pretty poor home for housecats, so when Hope For Paws hears about a mom and her newborn litter of kittens hiding out in a gas station drainage pipe, they team up with California volunteers to give this new family a second chance. Because the pipe is so long, however, they improvise an ingenious rescue involving RC cars and a DIY "piston" to push mom cat and the kittens out!

Did you know Mama Nutella, BonBon, Snickers, Nougat and Toffee all are looking for loving homes? Simply reach out to Room 8 Memorial Cat Foundation to get started.

Across the world, outdoor rescue veterinarian Rosu Ovidiu sees a small dog trapped between busy lanes of freeway traffic. Knowing the terrified pooch could dart into the road at any time, Rosu puts his own life on the line and carefully makes his way out to trembling little Beta.
