Slip Slidin’ Away

When a kitty flops over on the floor, sometimes it’s best to let it slide.

Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Miami Marlins Adopt-O-Mania

On Sunday, June 2, the Miami Marlins did not bat 1000. They batted 102! That’s how many furry friends found forever homes thanks to the Miami Marlins Ayudan (Spanish for “help”) Team of community outreach volunteers, along with the Humane Society, Animal Services and The Cat Network! That’s some major league teamwork, peeps.

Go Marlins! Look who’s on the Home Team now!

You’re a Brave Pug, Orange You!

Over 400 years ago a pug named Pompey, saved the life of his owner, William the Prince of Orange. It was near the battlefront in the Dutch struggle against the Spanish when Pompey, sleeping at the prince’s feet, foiled a midnight attack against the prince and saved his life. Soon after, the Pug became the official dog of the Netherlands House of Orange and the Royal Monarchy of the Netherlands.
