Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Malcolm, an adorable terrier mix who is currently being cared for by the Eleventh Hour Rescue in Rockaway, New Jersey.

This cutie earned his nickname Papa John because he was found at a local pizza restaurant trying to score some handouts. Very affectionate and friendly, Malcolm is just over 1 year old and loves other dogs. He's become a favorite at the kennel for his easy-going personality.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Gabby, a beautiful cat who is currently being cared for by Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (a.k.a. HOPE) in Wilton, New York.

What's special about 2-year-old Gabby? Everything! First of all, she's a fan of dogs, especially her foster buddy Ted, whom she's often found hanging out with. Second, she's a total sweetheart. She enjoys a good scratch and spending time with people, but she's also independent and doesn't need constant attention. At night, she'll seek out snuggles from you and in the morning she'll happily stare you down for a very important gift: treats!

Adopt Me! Caesar Is Ready for His Forever to Begin

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Caesar, a handsome pit bull mix currently being cared for by the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey.

Four years ago, Caesar was found as a stray and adopted into a loving home – but sadly, his forever was recently cut short. His owners are now moving and can't take their pup with them, so they returned him to the Eleventh Hour Rescue. The transition hasn't been easy: Caesar is sad, missing his owners and clearly longing for a loving place to call home.

Drones are already helping farms herd sheep, and now they are serving as shepherds on the Serengeti.

Over 40,000 elephants and 1,200 rhinos were killed by poachers in 2013 to feed a black market that will pay up to $500,000 for the animals' horns and tusks. Conservationists have been searching for a way to stop poachers before these animals become extinct, and the Air Shepherd Initiative may have found a way.

Through the program, supported by The Lindbergh Foundation, drones are sent out into Africa's wildlife parks at night, when poachers are known to hunt. These silent and stealthy unmanned aerial vehicles use infrared cameras to detect animals and hunters out on the plains. When a drone finds a poacher, the GPS coordinates of the location are quickly sent to rangers, so they can track down the culprits before they kill.

Adopt Me! K.D. Wants to Cuddle and Chat with You

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet K.D., a 1-year-old cat currently being fostered through Alley Cat Allies of Bethesda, Maryland.

This sweet and curious girl appeared one day in a feral colony in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She was filthy, emaciated and suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection. After noticing that she was well socialized, the people feeding the cats determined she was not actually feral at all and contacted Alley Cat Allies for help.

After a few days of good food, solid sleep, vet trips and lots of TLC, K.D. was feeling much better.

"She is a very active kitty who loves attention and is very chatty," reads her Petfinder bio. "She has spent her foster time taking care of two foster kittens, and likes the company of people and other cats."
