This is by far the best 2 minute video you’ll see all day. A farmer in Borneo found a baby orangutan and decided to raise her as a pet. However, she was mistreated, locked in a small cell, and given only rice and tofu. She suffered from severe malnutrition, since orangutans eat fruit, flowers, honey, bark, leaves and insects.
Luckily workers from International Animal Rescue discovered her plight. What happens next is truly heartwarming.

There’s not a dry eye here at the office after seeing her finally working to live in the wild. It truly shows the effect that relief organizations like the International Animal Rescue can have. If you’d like to help this orangutan, or others like her, please consider adopting one of them here.

When a child makes a promise to their parents, usually they are full of good intentions, even if they know they can’t fulfill said promise. This man was only 8 years-old when he promised to do something for his father. Now, years later, he ensured that he made good on what he said when he was a little boy. Years ago, he said he was going to give his father a ’57 Chevy Bel-Air on his 57th birthday. Decades passed and most people forgot about that adorable promise the little boy made to his daddy. The son, however, remembered.
There was a surprise waiting for this dad on his birthday…
You have to watch this father’s reaction for yourself. It’s so sweet and genuine, the months of hard work that this son had to put in to surprise his dad with this gift would have been so worth it.
It wasn’t an easy task, but he found a way to make sure his father received that car on his birthday. It meant so much to his father to receive it, but it was also very important for this son to give it to him. “I was pulling 60 hour work weeks over 6 days a week for a few months so I could buy this for him.”
Someone give this man a Son Of The Year award.
As a thank you for years of love, support and guidance, he gave his father this car.
His reaction makes it all worth it.
Source: Reddit We only are lucky enough to get one family in this life. They come in all shapes and sizes, but we should love them all the same. What this son did for his dad is absolutely unbelievable. The love that they share is so touching; click below and share it with your own loved ones.

Nora Brier has to be the most extreme grandmother on the planet right now. For her 100th birthday, Nora didn’t want to have dinner at a nice restaurant. In fact, she took that notion and doused it with lighter fuel and Mountain Dew Code Red before lighting it on fire.
To celebrate a century on Earth, she went up into the sky via a glider and pulled some extreme looping stunts. If this doesn’t get you pumped to possibly turn 100, then nothing will. Seriously, this grandma is not messing around when it comes to living life on the edge.
And I thought my grandmother was cool for not making me wear ugly sweaters that she knit herself. Nora Brier, you’re an inspiration to us all. Here’s to another 100 years of good health and stunts.

Hope For Paws received a call about a family of dogs struggling to survive in the desert. They were told one of the dogs had given birth beneath a broken down shack, so Eldad Hagar, who runs the organization, asked several volunteers to assist him. What they found was 3 dogs and 9 puppies out there in the hot desert. The conditions they were found in so were intense, it was a miracle they were still alive.
Just goes to show you, with a little bit of teamwork and love 12 precious lives can be saved.
These dogs were living, neglected, in 100+ degree weather.
Their rescue is a must-see.

Have you ever seen a sloth in person? Odds are, you haven’t. They are adorable, slow-moving creatures that are native to jungles and rain forests. Meet the woman who has dedicated her life to helping the adorable animals survive despite their rapidly disappearing land.
She loves her job working with sloths so much, she takes her work home with her…literally.
She uses her own home for the non-profit foundation and works to rescue the displaced sloths in Suriname, South America.
She normally houses about 2 sloths for a couple days, then releases them back into the wild.
But in 2012, land was cleared away and Monique expected her number to rise a bit.
She figured about 14 sloths would need help getting back on their feet.
But when Poole arrived, she found 200 sloths without a home.
So she brought them all back home with her.
She hopes to build them their own park.
Imagine the tourist potential!
Who wouldn’t want to hang out with a cute face like this??
Just thinkin’ ’bout sloth stuff.
I’m suddenly considering a career change. You can find more information about how you can help on the organizations Facebook. Sloths are just one of the many animals whose natural habitat are being threatened by humans.
