Heartwarming Animal Rescue Pics. The Last Series Will Choke You Up.

Some were victim of cruel owners, some had no way of escaping a natural disaster – when these cats, dogs, and other animals found themselves in peril luckily there was someone around to rescue them. They may not be human, but the look of relief and thankfulness on their faces is very real.

Today we feature some of our favorite pictures of animals being rescued, including one series that will probably make you tear up a bit. A woman was walking out with her Shitzu “Bibi” in Melbourne, Australia on a stormy day when suddenly they were struck by gale force winds. She watched in horror as her beloved dog was blown off the pier into the rushing waters below. What happens next is incredible.
