We know how excited your dog is about the Fourth of July – well, at least for your family's barbecue.
While it's fun to include your best buddy in the July 4th festivities like fireworks and road trips, it's important to be mindful of the dangers they can face as the temperatures rise. Now that it's summer, hot days, hot cars and hot pavement are just some of the most common hazards.
Our friends at the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) have put together this adorable infographic that offers 5 tips for keeping your pet safe this summer. Read it, make a summer pet safety plan and have a paw-some holiday!
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 Chuck, a young pit bull who has overcome difficult hurdles in his short life.
This past Christmas, the pooch was found tied to a fence at the Asphalt Green recreational campus in New York City. Unable to walk normally, he could only drag himself by his front legs.
He was brought to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by two good Samaritans. Radiographs revealed severe joint disease in both of his hips due to old fractures, and, as a result, he had lost almost all the muscle mass in his hind legs.
How do you say, "There's always next time!" in Portuguese?
Severa the dog is clearly upset that Portugal was eliminated from this year's World Cup, and the pup could use some words of encouragement.
We'll have what this cat is having.
It's the middle of the week, and this kitty could not care less. Instead of fretting over World Cup brackets, unanswered emails and Supreme Court decisions, this feline is content just sitting in a chair and straight chilling.
The video above is brought to us by calm cat connoisseur and YouTube user shironekoshiro, the same feline whisperer who impressed the Internet with Basket Cat and Stacking Cat. This leads us to wonder, how does shironekoshiro keep their kitties so relaxed? Catnip hypnosis? Reggae music? Aromatherapy? Whatever it is, it would be nice if they shared.
She's a contender – or should we say cat-ender?
Meet Pixel, a Munchkin cat (yes, that's a thing!) who could be the world's smallest cat – and her owners are hoping Guinness World Records will soon declare it so.
Like a lot of grooms on their wedding day, Jackson Galaxy had some pre-nuptial jitters in the moments preceding his June 29th ceremony, held in a secluded canyon in Utah.
Only for Galaxy, host of the Animal Planet show My Cat From Hell, it was on account of raccoons.
Diamonds are a dog's best friend, too.
It took six years, but Lois Matykowski's missing diamond wedding ring finally reappeared when her 10-year-old Rottweiler mix, Tucker, swallowed a popsicle stick this month, according to ABC News.
The Wisconsin pooch – known affectionately to his family as the "food burglar" – wolfed down a popsicle and its stick, which prompted Matykowski to call her veterinarian.
It's baby versus bulldog – and it's unclear who the real winner is.
Is someone upset because the dog took her spot on the couch? Is her diaper dirty? Or is she simply informing him about the latest viral cat video?
