Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet Dreamer, a 1-year-old pit bull terrier mix whose wish came true in April when she was transferred from an overcrowded shelter to the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island.
Over the past few months, Dreamer has been out to prove just how dreamy she is. The outgoing, people- and dog-friendly pooch has an unmistakable "goofy nature [that] is sure to bring a smile to your face," reads her bio.
We're a week past Thanksgiving, so chances are by now, you've probably picked out your Christmas tree. Maybe even decorated it. But if you haven't, here's a festive new way to mark the occasion, complements of dog Scout.
See, Scout is no ordinary dog. Scout loves to balance things on his head, as seen on his Mom Jen Gillen's Instagram account or on his website, Stuff on Scout's Head.
The pit bull has had everything from a stack of DVDs to a wheel of brie placed atop his noggin, but we think this cluster of Christmas lights might be his best topper yet.
The only thing that could make this even better is Keyboard Cat.
If you've ever wished Disney movies were real, then this is the story for you.
Tinni is a dog and Sniffer is a fox, and together, they're best friends. Much like the characters in the beloved animated film The Fox and the Hound, the pair have forged an unlikely friendship, which began when photographer Torgeir Berge and dog Tinni met the fox one day in the woods of Norway.
Berge's observation of the pair led him to realize "how similar foxes and dogs actually are," and inspired a book of adorable snapshots of the twosome frolicking outdoors, reports the Daily Mail.
So, a lion, a tiger and two leopards walk into a New York City office building ...
Okay, it didn't quite go down like that – there were cat carriers, baby bottles full of milk and several animal wranglers involved when four spirited big cats came to the PEOPLE studios last week in honor of Big Cat Week on Nat Geo WILD (running through Dec. 6).
After cat wrangler Boone Smith gave us the lowdown on these amazing felines, including a rare white tiger and African lion cub, we thought: Wouldn't it be fun if we got the 3-month-old African leopards to play with Christmas ornaments? Well, it turns out Ogre and Betty had other ideas. Click play above to watch what happens when you try and choreograph wild animals in a big fancy studio space.
We've all been there: Christmastime makes everything more intense and everything is just emotional and then someone's in your way and ...
Okay, we're not going to accuse junior first dog Sunny Obama of going all Grinch on a 2-year-old at Wednesday's White House holiday celebration. We would never imply that little Ashtyn Gardner was anything but lovely before she took the tumble to top all tumbles – the fall to dethrone Jennifer Lawrence as the Queen of Highly Public Falls. She definitely did not – just speculating – poke fun at his dark chocolate replica featured in the annual gingerbread display. She would never.
Either way, what went down at the decor unveiling could totally sabotage Sunny's approval rating. As the children of military families gathered for a day of crafts and festive fun, Gardner's well-intentioned run-in with Sunny turned into the stuff Michelle Obama's nightmares are made of.
To be fair, Sunny only startled the tot, who then stepped back and tripped over a walker (watch below). Still, we know you're new here Sunny. We know it's your first Christmas in the White House. But you're doing it wrong.
Wildlife officials are heading to a remote area of Everglades National Park to help pilot whales stranded in shallow water.
On Tuesday, officials found 20 to 30 pilot whales either beached or stranded in waters in a remote area of the Florida park near Highland Beach in northern Monroe County.
Rangers helped some of the whales, but about 10 were beached late Tuesday.
Park spokeswoman Linda Friar says six of the whales were pushed back into the water. As of Wednesday, 10 whales died.
When James Kenison and his father Doug learned through Facebook that three deer were stranded on Minnesota's Albert Lea Lake, they knew they had to do something.
The owners of a hovercraft tour and training company, the pair headed for the lake on Sunday to save the animals and filmed a sweet video of the rescue.
According to The Saratogian, when the Kenisons arrived at the scene, they found the deer more than a quarter mile from shore. The lake was frozen solid and was so slippery the animals couldn't get their footing on the ice.
Planet of the chimpanzees?
An animal rights group is asking New York courts to recognize scientific evidence of emotional and cognitive abilities in chimpanzees and to grant the animals "legal personhood" so that they are ensured better treatment.
Nonhuman Rights Project, a nonprofit founded in 2007 by Massachusetts lawyer Steven Wise, filed a second lawsuit Tuesday and plans to file a third Thursday that asks the courts to declare that the chimps are not things to be possessed and caged by people. It also asks that chimps should be released from "illegal detention."
