They Heard Screeching Coming From A Well, But They Never Expected To Find This

Villagers in Maharashtra, India, suspected that something was wrong when they began hearing howling and crying coming from the town well.

After a simple investigation, they discovered that a leopard had somehow managed to take a 60-foot plunge into the water. A group of them crafted a bundle of sticks that would serve as a life preserver until a rescue team could step in.

Rescuers from Wildlife SOS were quick to arrive on the scene. The team, led by veterinarian Ajay Deshmukh, decided that their best bet was to lower a crate into the well in hopes that the stranded leopard would become curious and want to check it out, allowing them to pull the jungle cat to safety. At first, our leopard friend thought the crate was an enemy, but after a while, the frightened feline figured out their rescue plan.

If it hadn’t been for these quick-thinking heroes, this precious leopard might have drowned.

This Dog Was Shot 18 Times With A BB Gun, But He Pulled Through In The Best Way

Universe, meet Brody. He’s an 8-week-old puppy from Rock Hill, South Carolina, and he’s basically the cutest.

While it’s not obvious in the image above, Brody’s life recently hung in the balance after he endured being shot 18 times with a BB gun. He was rushed to a local animal hospital when a maintenance worker at an apartment complex noticed that the dog was bleeding heavily from several open wounds.

Earlier that day, the employee saw that a fairly large group of teens had been playing with the dog. That’s what he thought at the time, at least. After seeing what Brody had been through, however, he came to the horrifying conclusion that the adolescents were taunting and abusing the animal for their own amusement.

The kind folks at Ebenezer Animal Hospital whisked Brody away to assess his condition.

Frankly, they were disgusted by what they saw. “There is no doubt that this is one of the worst acts I’ve ever seen,” Dr. Jay Hreiz explained to a local news outlet. Although the pellets fortunately didn’t cause damage to any vital organs, the dog was shaken up and terrified. He lost a lot of blood after the attack, but doctors knew that the determined little guy would pull through.

Because putting puppies under general anesthesia at such a young age is risky, vets decided to forgo removing the pellets. “He’s really young, so he has a remarkable ability to heal at his age. Brody may be able to live a healthy, normal life with all those BBs in him,” Dr. Hreiz said. He will, of course, be monitored closely over the course of his life to ensure that he’s still in good shape.

As of now, Brody is convalescing, and his wounds are healing nicely. All he has to do at this point is get plenty of rest.

Thanks to a non-profit organization called Project Safe Pet, Brody has already found a forever home! It will take him a little while to start trusting humans, but given what he’s been through, that’s totally okay.

A 14-year-old and a 17-year-old have been arrested in connection with the crime, and police are confident that the two will be convicted. After going through something immeasurably awful, little Brody managed to walk away with a new family that will always keep him safe, and some well-deserved justice.

This Horse Was Moments From Death, But An Amazing Rescue Saved It Just In Time.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals did it again! They were able to bring a speckled gray mare in Kent, England to safety. The horse was stuck in water up to its head, and was moments away from drowning. The rescue team received word that it was in trouble. They quickly made their way to the water’s edge, and used a harness and crane to pull the horse to safety. Take a look at the thrilling rescue below!  

Wow. Looks like they got there just in time.

That’s one cooperative horse.

Most horses wouldn’t have had the strength to stand after such a strenuous day, but most horses also wouldn’t have lasted that long in the cold water. Luckily, this one had enough fat reserves to keep it warm and full of energy.

Thanks to the RSPCA, the horse was able to make a full recovery. Way to go, guys!

Rescuers Drove Into A Forest To Rescue This Poor, Scared Pup And Make A Human’s Day

When the Fourth of July rolls around, cities and towns across the U.S. set off insane fireworks shows. While they’re pretty to us, dogs and cats tend to find these displays terrifying.

That’s when an elderly dog named Rocky took off into the forest, getting lost in the wilderness. His owner grew incredibly worried and didn’t know if he’d ever see his best friend again. That’s when a stranger noticed something moving in the woods and performed an act that makes him a hero in our book.

After the Conway Area Humane Society posted a photo of the pup online, a family member of his owner spotted him and immediately reached out. Fortunately, Rocky and his dad were reunited!

This Dog Didn’t Want To Show His Face, And The Reason Why Is Heartbreaking

I can’t even begin to imagine having a dog and then one day deciding that I just couldn’t care for it anymore.

That’s exactly what the owners of Oso, an eight-year-old chow mix, did just before Independence Day of 2016. His owners called the Downey Animal Care Center to come pick Oso up because they felt they could no longer deal with his medical conditions. The dog suffers from both alopecia and pyoderma, and is therefore left with some cosmetic abnormalities.

The rejection from his owners left Oso with very little confidence. The pooch spent weeks hiding in the corner, but now, he’s learning to open up to people again.

Oso is looking for a forever home. Remember, the love of an animal goes far beyond their physical appearance.
