A few years ago Oliver was almost euthanized when the shelter he was living at no longer had room for him. But luckily a foster Mom saved Oliver and other kitties from the shelter. Oliver's adoptive parents were so grateful for the opportunity to bring him home. Now he is a confident, affectionate cat with a sense of humor and a loud purr!

Huey arrived at Main Line Animal Rescue in Chester Springs, PA when the shelter in Philadelphia called for their help. He was presumed to have been hit by a car and lost his right eye, and when he came to MLAR, they realized he had a badly broken jaw for several weeks as well. After months of recovery, his adoptive Mom took him home and he quickly bounced back. He is his Mom's constant shadow and her life has been changed for the better since adopting him.

Yuri and Jupiter were adopted from Woodstock Animal Sanctuary a few months ago. Shortly thereafter, 3,000 "spent hens" were being rescued from a factory in California and were being flown to different animal sanctuaries for adoption. The people at Woodstock encouraged Yuri and Jupiter's adoptive parents to take as many as they could and three weeks ago 18 beautiful hens joined their rapidly growing family.

Olivia, better known as 'Ollie' was 3 1/2 years old and a rescue at Animal Haven, NYC—they had taken her from a kill shelter where a couple had dropped her off and the application read, "Can't take care of her anymore." She was extremely frightened, skinny as a rail, and disheveled. This little very lady-like gal is now 13 years old, happy, as you can see, and fond of the good life. Here she is sharing a hammock with her adoptive Mom.

Felicity was adopted, along with her bonded companion Perpetua, from a shelter nearly five years ago. She had a strong personality: curious, skittish, quite reactionary, and always a little skeptical. She also had a strong will and always made her feelings clear with a stomp, a tug, or sometimes even a little growl. She loved to frolic at the park, play in leaves, and would do a little twister-dance whenever she was happy. Sadly Felicity passed away in early October, may she rest in peace.

This is Karl, a very handsome and very lucky Saint Berdaneweiler. His previous owners left him at a high kill shelter in Southern New Mexico because he got too big. Luckily an amazing rescue called Animal Village New Mexico in Alamogordo, NM got hold of him and his adoptive parents drove 9 hours to go pick him up. He is the most amazingly lovable, soft, friendly and perfect dog you can imagine! He now resides and lives the good life with his two poodle brothers in Denver, Colorado.
