Firefighters are some of the world's greatest heroes, hands down.
And the documentary, BURN, is out to prove it!
In a scene from the film, Detroit firefighters answer the call when a man asks if the brave men and women can save his dogs
This is absolutely incredible.
A hero dog has changed the policy at a battered woman shelter.
Last year, a woman was nearly beaten to death by her boyfriend.
He literally took a hammer and began beating her with both ends of it.
When she was lying on the floor, near death, her Great Dane threw himself on top of her, absorbing most of the hammer blows from the boyfriend until the man threw them both out of a second story window!
We have trouble even believing one human could do that to another.
When the woman called a domestic abuse survivor shelter, they made arrangements for her but not her savior… no pets were allowed.
The CEO of the center said:
"She was not going to leave her pet alone with him. He saved her life."
Her Great Dane had suffered several broken ribs, a broken hip and serious bruising.
The shelter had to make an exception for this hero.
They said that 40% of woman who suffer domestic abuse won't leave their pets for fear of leaving them with the abuser, so they live in their car or they stay.
Risking their life for their animal.
The CEO said:
"They provide so much comfort, and to have to leave that pet behind is so heartbreaking.
It has become abundantly clear that the incredible therapeutic benefits that pets can have on a family greatly outweigh the cost and inconvenience of housing them."
So the CEO's center has built 7 kennels and now takes pets.
It took the love, loyalty and bravery of one dog to change the policy of women's shelters, and save 40% more lives.
Amazing, simply amazing. This dog deserves a medal.
Robert Downey Jr. may be known to portray a superhero on the screen, but he's also a real life hero…
For two cute kittens!!
About his new pretty kitties he said:
"Eighteen months ago, I’m saying, ‘I don’t want any rescue pets within 100 yards of either of my residences, I’m sorry. I don’t want some, like, tripod, abused animal.’ I was adamantly opposed to the whole idea.
And now I couldn’t imagine living without them. I’ve become one of those people where the Missus is like, ‘They don’t want to see iPhone pictures of our kittens right now. Stop it."
Wow… that's a pretty big turn around. He pulled a full 180 from somehow hating rescue pets to head over heels loving them.
We're happy that you're happy, Robbie!

We previously mentioned that when a young soldier, Justin Rollins, was killed in Iraq a dog he had rescued only the night before was sent home to his parents.
The dog, who they named Hero, has been a beacon of strength for them in what has been an impossibly trying time.
A reporter, Kimberly Launier of ABC news went to his parents home and was interviewing them about their fallen son and their dog Hero.
Launier was filming Hero running around the backyard when suddenly, the clouds broke and a single beam of light, shone down on Hero.
She was amazed and on playback of the video, saw that she caught it!
When she showed the video to Justin's parents they were all laughing and dancing… they wondered if it was a sign from Justin.
Excuse us… we need to grab a tissue.
