A happy ending to an initially heart breaking story!
A homeless man's dog was taken from him in the middle of the night in Hudson, Florida. The dog was a gift from the man's late wife who succumbed to cancer in 2011. She literally gave the dog to her husband so he would remember her.
After the heartbreaking story of the dog robbery grew some legs, friends of the homeless man, who's name is Bryan, helped set up a Facebook page to track Bryan's dog Handover down!
They even raised $1,000 for the reward money! And it totally worked!

This is just so sad!
Dozens of people were killed when a powerful tornado struck Moore, Oklahoma.
But not only humans were affected… many animals were injured or killed when the twister struck!
Sadly, it seems over 100 horses were killed when they were unable to get out of the tornado's path.

It's been tough, looking at all the destruction in Oklahoma, caused by that awful recent tornado.
It's so terrible, thinking about how many people were injured or killed, and how many homes were destroyed.
But every once in a while, something wonderful happens.
We just mentioned a woman found her pet dog underneath the rubble of her destroyed home while giving an interview live on TV.
Now, another story of pet rescue:

There are few things worse in this world than cancer.
It's a horrible disease that ruins lives… but it can be prevented!!
Right now, it's Pet Cancer Awareness Month and so what better way to spread awareness than by sharing some of Dr. Patrick Mahaney's tips for preventing cancer in your pet??
Dr. Mahaney's Top Five Holistic Pet Cancer Prevention Tips:
I would love to call this article my top five holistic tips to cure pet cancer, but I feel that title might be somewhat misleading. Through my experiences working with my oncology colleagues at the Veterinary Cancer Group (VCG), I’m aware that some cancers can be cured but the majority of them are clinically managed (put into remission, etc.) and don’t necessarily completely resolve.
Cancer is a disease disease that we veterinarians are diagnosing more frequently in pets. According to the Morris Animal Foundation “1 in 2 dogs will develop cancer and 1 in 4 dogs will die of the disease”.
As there is no guarantee for a cure, we should strive to prevent our pets from developing cancer in the first place. Yet, as cancer is a complicated disease of the immune system involving excessive growth of cells having altered DNA, the origins of the disease never have singular nor finite cause. Therefore, there is no absolute guarantee that our best efforts to prevent cancer from happening will guarantee a desired outcome (i.e. having a pet never develop cancer).
May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month, so I want to emphasize the concept that making healthy lifestyle choices can provide a better state of overall wellness and potentially reduce the likelihood that cancer may occur. Although there is no failproof cancer preventative tactic, here are my top five tips to help keep your pet cancer free.

Karen Jones, a 48-year-old woman from the UK, was left in tears after her missing cat turned up dead on the side of the road.
Or at least she thought he did.
Turns out it was all just a case of mistaken identity!
Karen was looking for her missing cat Norman and when a passer-by told her family that there was a cat matching his description that had been hit by a car, she went to investigate.

This is absolutely disgusting!!
Some people just make us absolutely sick!
James Bryant is a homeless man who lost his wife to cancer in the beginning of 2011.
The last gift she gave to him was his dog, Handover.
She had hoped the dog would keep him company after he lost her.
After losing his wife and then his farm, Handover was literally all James had left.
Until Handover was stolen one night!! How terrible!!
Check out the video (above) to find out exactly what happened!

Isabella Rossellini is gorgeous, talented and pretty funny!
She's teamed up with the Sundance Channel to make a new web series called Mammas.
Isabella already has some acclaim from her Webby-award winning short film series' Green Porno and Seduce Me, all about the sex lives of animals.
Now she's moved past the sex to the next logical place… motherhood!
This particular story turns Isabella into a hamster!!
The tale turns pretty dark when you realize that hamsters are great mothers, who love their babies… if their babies are strong and have good traits.
Otherwise, things can get a little… cannibalistic!!
Check out the video (above) to see what Isabella Rossellini would do if she were a hamster!
