This is a picture of Luke Rowles when he was 15. He saw a group of men in a garden, kicking and beating this poor fox whose mouth had been sealed shut with duct tape. Lucas went straight to them without regard to his own safety, he shouted at the men and grabbed the fox. After healing his wounds, he freed the animal. Today, Luke continues rescuing animals for the RSDR - The world needs more brave people like Luke, with an unconditional will to help those in need.

The older more experienced dog seems to know that a great deal of comfort is needed. Humans can learn a lot from watching the animals in the world." ~K~ I agree!

This is an incredibly profound shot. The bravery of the men and their dogs in service to our country...

This unique photo marks the moment when Matador Torero Alvaro Munera ended his career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, the bull did not attack this man.

The Circle - Thank you to all of you who has helped a creature in need. You are Special. Beautifully written, this is what every one in rescue feels. And I'm pretty sure what every rescued dog feels.

The eyes say it all. How can anyone not believe that animals have a soul; look at those eyes; fear and relief are there. Bless you, Mr. Fireman!

In 1958, a Legionary of "13" (13th Demi-Brigade of Foreign Legion) in operations in the Jebel, Algeria, found this starving donkey. The legionnaire brought him back to the base and the animal became the mascot of the unit under the name "Bambi". The legion was given an award for kindness to animals. Real men are kind to animals!
