Ducklings Stuck Down A Storm Drain Get Rescued As Their Concerned Mom Looks On

A team of firefighters in Auckland, New Zealand, banded together to help a distraught mother duck after her ducklings fell down a storm drain. The team of heroes formed an assembly line to pull the tiny babies out while the notably anxious mom duck watched.

The moment the chirping cuties are reunited with their mother is one that will put a huge smile on your face.

I’m so glad someone took the time to get a closer look at that drain once they heard the quacks coming from it. It’s people like these fine firefighters that make the world a better place. I’m sure this momma duck will be forever grateful for their kindness.

When this group of cyclists was out for their daily ride, they weren’t expecting to become heroes — but that’s exactly what happened.

Midway through their workout, they noticed a horse that had fallen into a ditch on the side of the road. Stopping to help the stranded horse, the cyclists put a halt to their peddling and put their brains in gear on how to best help the mare.

One jumped into the ditch and pushed from behind, while the others used ropes to try to pull the horse to safety. After a failed first attempt, this was the moment the harrowing rescue succeeded!

The horse was stunned and dirty but otherwise unharmed!

These guys are proof that in a crisis, you don’t need to be a superhero to save a life.

Two Guys Went Fishing But Ended Up Catching Abandoned Kittens

When Jason Frost and Brandon Key went fishing on the Black Warrior river in Alabama, they had no idea what they might catch. They never imagined that it would turn into a “cat-fishing” trip, which is exactly what happened when they rescued two kittens that swam out from shore to seek safety on their boat.

“Y’all are not gonna believe what is swimming towards our boat. A kitten,” Frost says in his now-viral video of the kittens’ ordeal. Though wet and terrified, the kittens are good swimmers and they seem grateful for the rescue. In the video, Frost guesses that they were abandoned there by their previous owners.

After reaching dry land, Frost and Key met a family that fell in love with the kittens and adopted them.

It was a kitten, and a second soon followed as well

“Some jackass probably put them out here”

“This puts a new spin on the term ‘catfishing’”

Vets Didn’t Know If They Could Save This Cat, But He Miraculously Pulled Through

When rescuers found Rocky on the side of the road, they were horrified. The six-week-old kitten was resting next to his dead brother, and he wasn’t in great shape himself. The poor thing had a broken pelvis and a massive hernia. If he didn’t get help immediately, he would surely die.

That’s when the miracle workers at Vet Ranch stepped in to save the day. Operating immediately, they worked to fix Rocky’s abdomen. You can check out the amazing footage below.

Warning: the video below contains graphic images.

Vets believe that Rocky will be just fine. It’s so awesome that the kitty found an amazing home. Congrats, Rocky!

This Manta Ray Had A Fishing Line Wrapped Around Her Wing. Watch As These Divers Amazingly Help Her.

This beautiful video comes to us from the Philippines. When several divers were out in the ocean, they were approached by a large Manta Ray with a fishing line slicing through her right wing. The master diver attempted several times to cut her free from the barnacle encrusted fishing line, but she always flinched. Several attempts later it looked like she realized the diver was trying to help and she calmed down, allowing him to set her completely free of the line. The best part is that the Manta kept circling the divers afterwards, almost as if to say thanks.

These Dogs Knew Nothing But Pain Until Rescuers Gave Them A New Lease On Life

Living in total misery, two young pit bulls named Lois and Clark lived under a truck until fairly recently. Starving and in desperate need of medical attention, they weren’t going to last much longer in that state. That’s when a few volunteers from Hope for Paws heard about their situation and decided that enough was enough.

They struggled a bit at first, but after some coaxing, they were able to wrangle the terrified pups. When they started warming up to rescuers, the adorable pair revealed that they were actually big softies.

Lois and Clark are now looking for a forever home, and the folks at Hope for Paws really want to find a family that will let them stay together. If you’d like to help them, please consider sharing their story and directing people in the Los Angeles area to the shelter.

The 13-year-old boy had been excited Wednesday, because he was finally old enough to stay home alone. He usually wears hearing aids but didn’t have them in as he napped, so he didn’t hear the home’s smoke alarms, the local NBC-affiliate reported.

2. As the fire grew, Lamb’s 2-year-old pit bull named Ace licked his face, waking him up to a room full of smoke.

Lamb’s mother, Lindsay Bernard, called the event “amazing, because if [Ace] wouldn’t have been there, he probably wouldn’t have even woke up.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
