Paisley: ResQte Of The Week

IMG_9598One Flap Up (above) isn’t a Rule..but maybe it should be? Hmmmm. Let’s hear from Meaghan S.

“Hello Cute Animal Lovers,” she writes. “My dog Paisley would LOVE to be featured on Cute Overload!”

“She is my Cute Vizsla Mix Rescue who is impossibly Cute.”



In Which Farmer Bob Finds Sweet William

This Farmer (Bob) rescued this Bebeh Skunkster (William) who was sick and orphaned by the side of the road!

Barbara F. just sent in this email: “I recently got the chance to meet Sweet William (the orphaned baby skunk named after a flower) when I visited a farm stand on Martha’s Vineyard run by a guy named Farmer Bob. In nursing the baby skunk back to health, he keeps the little guy in his pocket to keep him warm. You can see him taking Sweet William out of his pocket and letting me hold him! I was ECSTATIC to get to hold a baby skunk for the first (and probably last) time in my life. It was seriously a bucket list item for me.”

THIS JUST IN: ResQte Of The Week IV

Jethro2J-mediumThis note just in from Photographer Extraordinaire Jess Lessard: ” I’ve got some precious photos of the dogs that are currently available at the Orange Cove, CA Animal Shelter (just southeast of Fresno) and they need some extra special help getting adopted because they are tucked away in a little rural shelter. The Orange Cove shelter gets little to no funding, and adoptions are all organized by volunteers. Would you consider sharing these cute faces? I would so very appreciate it!” (JETHRO, above.)





ResQte Of The Week III: No Puppeh Left Behind

Mike Nuanes’ shih tzu puppy Jordan disappeared EIGHT YEARS ago from his Colorado home. But then, Nuanes got a call from an ATLANTA shelter. The shelter called him and told him they had a dog in their possession with his name in the chip data. And then, the big question.

“Is his name…Jordan?”

And this video pretty well says it all, too:

ResQte Of The Week II: Dateline, Lincolnshire UK!

A bebeh seal needed to be rescued after she somehow got stuck in a field! She was only 5 days old at the time!

A fellow chap named Ian Ellis was out for a walk when he noted some curious cows…crowded around a puddle.

Folks from the RSPB Reserve and Skegness Natureland helped get the little lady to safety.

She’ll stay at the Natureland Seal Hospital until she gains more weight, and then she’ll be released back into the wild.

Now check out THIS interspecies nomming, will you PLEASE.

ResQte Of The Week II: Babs, Kununurra, Western Australia!

_MG_9971_edited-1Karen A. wrote us yesterday and asked, “Would you be interested in featuring Babs on your site?” Well, let me think on that. OK I did. ABSOLUTELY!

“She is an orphaned baby red kangaroo who lives at the Kangaroo Haven in Kununurra in Western Australia.”

“The lady who runs it does amazing work. Here is an article about the haven.”

“The last photo is a little baby wallaby I have taken on under their adoption program, snuggling with his own pet teddy bear. I took all these photos myself. Thanks for your consideration.”

THIS JUST IN: UK Duckling ResQte Of The Week!

Maintenance worker Gary Bartoszewski was going about his day when what did he see but BIG TROUBLE! Some bebeh ducksters had taken a dive down a sewer grate in Doncaster, South Yorkshire UK. (This happens far too often! Don’t they read the signs? Whoops, one more.)

Naturally, Gary sprang into action, and was able to haul the little guys up and out, to be reunited with Mom!
