It's heart-wrenching to see videos of this genre here at RightThisMinute because we hold animals so near and dear to our heart. Still, we make a point to celebrate happy endings in these sad stories.

Our first animal rescue from Spain looks like a simple case of owner negligence that left this poor Pitbull smothering in 80-degree sunshine. The second caught our attention because the owner of this poor kitten in Canada still locks her away in his SUV after BOTH the fire department and a conscientious couple call him out.

'Hardly Sonic' The Hedgehog Gets Stuck & Dumpster Raccoon Makes Quick Getaway

There's Still Hope For This Beachside Parking Fail

Besides the fact that it's wet, dirty and gets everywhere, most of us would stay away from DIY beach parking lots because of a little weather pattern called "tides". A forgotten parking brake was actually to blame for this odd ocean Mercedes rescue on the Black Sea "Russian Riviera", but we're sure its driver was still face-palming all the same when he realized his car would never be the same. Thankfully, thousands of other Russian tourists also share this Krasnodar Krai resort beach and came to this nearly-drowned car's aid. View Now

Though it tells a touching tale, RightThisMinute hosts notice a few suspicious editing "red flags" in the video. View Now

Navy Rescues Sweet Dog Lost At Sea
