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 Bear, a wire-haired German shepherd whose life was turned upside down when his elderly owner passed away last year.

When the 8-year-old pooch first arrived at Oreo's Animal Rescue in Dickinson, N.D., seven months ago, he was frightened. The quiet life he once knew was suddenly gone, replaced by the noisy interruptions of other dogs and cats.

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, we'd like you to meet Nomey, a happy-go-lucky guy who lives life to the fullest.

Look up the term "happy tail" in the dictionary and you'll see Nomey. "His tail wags so much that he was smacking it on the sides of his run and causing the tip to bleed," says Roger Keyser of the Eleventh Hour Rescue in Rockaway, N.J., where Nomey has been since mid-December. "It's actually a [common] thing."

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, we'd like you to meet Perry, a cat recently found living in a Riverdale, N.J., sewer.

When Marcia Scott got a call from her friend about a sweet adult cat who'd taken up residence in a sewer, she just couldn't say no. The friend lured the feline out of the sewer, where he'd been hiding out as temperatures dipped into the single digits, and Scott made room for the "very friendly" pet at her Happy Cat Rescue, based in Albany, N.Y.

Alyssa Milano Rescues Abused Dog Found Tied to Pole

Originally posted 01/11/2014 08:45 AM

When Alyssa Milano heard the story of an abused and neglected Jindo-mix who had been raised for dog-meat slaughter in South Korea, she jumped at the chance to lend a paw.

"They contacted me and said that they were trying to get that dog over here, and would I be willing to help, support, fund, whatever? And I said, 'Of course!' " Milano told PEOPLE at Audi's Golden Globes Awards celebration on Thursday in Los Angeles. "It took a while to get her here."

When the pooch-in-need, Bomi, was found in April 2013 by South Korean animal rescue organization CARE, she was tied to a pole and covered with sores. Her puppies were found frozen in the dirt. CARE contacted Santa Monica-based organization The Fuzzy Pet Foundation for help, and rescue workers knew just the supporter to call: Milano.

George's former owner didn't leave much explanation for why he had to let the black-haired feline go, just a heartbreaking note left alongside the cat.

"I cannot take care of him anymore," the anonymous letter read. "He is a great indoor/outdoor cat that loves people ... I didn't know what to do with him and I know you are a no-kill shelter. I'm sorry."
