Rescued Animals
«: October 17, 2008, 10:06:21 AM»
So, my friend and I rescued this six week old kitten, now nine weeks old. He was in the middle of an intersection, where two other cats were already dead. He was very malnourished, but after I brought him home and fed him replacement milk and wet kitten chow, he's become SO energetic. I can't even sleep through the night...Here's a pic of him: Dodger

A few years ago, my family also rescued a malnourished kitten wandering the street. He has a nice home and loving family now, with a few other cats and a dog.

If you've ever rescued an animal, or been involved with shelters or such, please share!

I think it was the summer before last when I was walking to a friend's house and saw this little white puppy (i'm not sure of the breed) get hit by a car, :l it was one of the worst sights i'd seen. and so i ran up to the highway, and all these cars just kept going around the poor dog laying there.  and when i got close enough i realized he was still alive but very bloody and his eyes were all looking around )X so i picked him up and carried him to the vets office which was a couple blocks away and they doctored the puppy up and he was good as new.  i think he had one broken leg or two, i can't remember.  and when he was returned to his owners they sent me flowers.

I remember when I was really little me and my friend Sarah found a bird on the street, and it was just sorta laying there. So we put it in a shoebox full of grass (and barbie blankets) and made it this little home in a tank with a warm light to keep it healthy. I believe we named him Birdy, and a few days later he was fine and flying around. Instead of releasing him back outside, we gave him to a friend who takes care of injured birds.
We also once found a worm we named Wormy, and rescued him from the really hot pavement?? his friends were already fried :(

me and my dad used to pick up injured birds all the time (lol, my dog kept chasing them in our yard).
a few days ago i found one in my bf's garage but i couldnt do anything because we were in a hurry. i felt kinda bad for not helping this time.

I have two rescue cats. One was born in a barn and the other was found with her littermates ditched on the side of the road without their mom. They're both ridiculous. <_<

i got my kitten from an animal shelter if that counts?

but once, when i was really little, my dad found a hurt bird in our backyard and he put it in a shoebox. i stayed with it and fed it bread until it started moving around, and then it suddenly took off outside.

Our family only adopts rescued animals. Two rabbits, two dogs, and another dog before that who has sadly passed on.

I got one of my dogs from a shelter. He was there with his brother and his dad. We had to go and visit him everyday for a month because he was so scared of us. I believe they were all abused. :(

Six years ago my mother found my cat Tiny in a dumpster at the nursing home she used to work at.
He was really small malnourished, but after a few weeks, he was fine.
And now six years later, he's fat, lazy, and likes to play with our other cat Ringo, who we got from someone who had over 16 kittens in a chicken coop looking thing.
Any animal we get are strays and rescue pets. :3

My mom's ex boyfriend found our cat Olive in an alleyway, seven months old, already had kittens, dehydrated, with a neck full of maggots.

We took her in, my mom took her to the vet, and she miraculously survived. We were going to get one of her kitten's too, but they were all adopted by the time we wanted one (which is good).

I'm so happy she lived though. She's a tiny lil' kitty with extra toes, and she sits on my knee and licks stuff all the time. She's also the only cat I know that loves having her belly rubbed. <3

You guys probably know I had issues with paying for a cat and everyone here was so generous to help with this kitten so yay! That's a lot of rescuers.

This kitten was bought from a shelter where they time the animals life, and if it hasn't been adopted in it's time it would have to be put down.

I am so glad I have Nia now, she's adorable spunky, and has that little independance in her but shes still alert and sparky. Oh! We also taught her two tricks so far, Come here and Sit! Fast-learner c:

I have rescued to animals so far.

First as a baby raccoon.  Sad and weird story.  I was working as a bird specialist at the time and my good friend Nick worked with snakes and other reptiles.  We were over at my friend, Hobbe's, place, since we were staying the night.  Kept hearing odd sounds coming from his furnace.  The two of us agreed it must be a chipmunk or something that got stuck inside, so we started carefully opening the thing up, I was ready with a towel.  To our surprise, it was a baby racoon.  He must have been struggling quite a bit to get himself lodged so far in.  He was amost smooshed and crying.  His head was all that stuck out of the tube.  We assume there must have been a nest on top of the roof (this was in the city).  So we took the thing outside to see if I might be able to walk, unfortunately it looked like the back legs may both have been broken, so we kept him overnight and took him to a rescue the next day.  Poor little thing.  We put some nice blankets in a box for him and let him sleep.

The second was a baby owl I found in my yard.  First off, I have dogs, didn't want the poor thing trampled or hurt.  It looked as though it had a broken wing.  Ended up driving it to the humane society and they looked after it.  :)

the first one was a kitten i found under my car, another was a cat i found stuck in a storm drain who was sick and in dire need of a vet but she made it just fine, and my pembroke welsh corgi was adopted from a rescue shelter at the age of 10. i love rejected animals no one else would ever want.
also, there was a little owl on the side of the road with a broken wing and one eye closed. we took it to a local wildlife rescue shelter and they kept it until it was healed up, then called us to see him off when they let him go. it was nice  :)
i also rescue spiders all the time from people who want to crush them. i like spiders.

also, kinda off topic, but i got to actually meet that one rescued dog, faith, and her owner a few months ago when i worked on the base in photo-journalism. that was so cool...
