These Seals Boop Back

Every time their tracking tags check in.

Vancouver Aquarium. One of those places where it’s wonderful to work, and your bosses are all short and blubbery, in a good way! On Nov. 22, the Marine Mammal Rescue program released 5 rehabbed sealios named Oberon, Lagoon, Polaris, Pan and Puck. Each seal was fitted with a tracking device on its head. What’s a special occasion without cool party hats? The awesomest thing is we don’t have to say goodbye, because we can follow them too! Get on over to the site and take a look at how two of them are just all over the place! Sooo cute!

Give a Little Bit

Give a little bit if you can today. Now’s the time that we need to share. Send a smile, show you care…


We had Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, and today, Dec. 3, is Giving Tuesday. This is the second ever Giving Tuesday. The LATimes says the first was a success with peeps globally donating to over 2600 charities. Today there are an estimated 7500 participating charities according to USAToday.

Guy Buys a Bag of Mulch. Gets a Free Squirrelio.

It all started when, well, no one really knows how it started. But this guy found a bebeh squirrelio that somehow got inside a bag of mulch.

We also don’t know who is luckier, the squirrelio or the guy.

All we know is a very caring guy got the best Cracker Jack prize ever! And its name is Zip!

Except, unlike a Cracker Jack prize, Zip keeps getting better and better.

And, like they say, when we help even the littlest of those in need,

it brings good car-ma.

Zip would now like to raise a toast to his hoomin.

Caturday: Squeaky Cheeks!

“Last year I was in a major car accident and recently I have been getting back towards work by foster caring for my local vet on weekends for the pure joy of it and to give me some drive towards routine. Recently this little black and white Kitteh squeaked in my direction via the vet and stole my heart!” -Kristen B.

Woah, Stand Back Everybody

Who just said they want to see me hang ten on a monster wave? Cuz I’ll do it.

You’re Not Seein’ MY Nose This Month!

Now, Mango. It’s NOSEVEMBER. The whole idea is, we wanna see your little snoot. It’s no good if you just hide it like that no wait a minute yes it is good forget I said that.

“This is Mango, our rescue puppeh. When it gets cold he covers his pointy little nose. We call him our ‘therapy dog’ because whenever someone’s sad, he intuitively knows and sits on their lap to cheer them up. PS- Your site has blessed so many lives. I believe that we each find own little corner of the ‘garden’ and tend it, and that all of you at CO have found a special place in many people’s hearts. Thank you so much for what you do. Please also send Meg warm congratulations on her new little twins.” -Jenn K.

Who’d Trade Places With This Hoomin?

Anyone? Don’t be shy now.

From Yahoo Screen: “Uploader Sammy Petterson told Storyful: ‘The kitten was born not breathing and had to be revived by the vet. I hand reared her at the start as she was too weak as we didn’t know if she would survive. She slept next to my face every night once she was strong enough.’”

How ‘Bout Some Nice Tofurkey Instead?

Clipboard01(Mr. Turkey says: “I pretty much despise Thanksgiving. Nothing personal, just business.”)

“Time to celebrate turkeys! I wonder if your readers would like to see this adorable rescued baby turkey who looks like a cotton ball? Who needs Butterball, when Farm Sanctuary’s got a wittle cottonball?” -Meredith T.

The Adopt a Turkey Project gives people the chance to sponsor one of the rescued birds who reside at the group’s shelters in New York and California. It’s provided care for more than 1,000 rescued turkeys over the last 25 years.
