When this fire department got an urgent call about a litter of newly-born pups abandoned in a storm drain, Brian Vaughan and his team of firefighters rushed to the scene. The “pups” looked safe and the firemen carefully examined and retrieved each and every one of the pups from the drain, making a count of their number along the way.
They then took the pups to the Humane Society located in the Pikes Peak Region to have them checked out and find out what breed they were.
To the firemen’s surprise, these were not black Labrador pups like they had assumed. Turns out they were Red Fox pups! These fox pups look very similar to dog pups and can easily confuse the untrained eye.
The firemen put the fox pups back in the drain where they found them, so that the mother fox can come back and take care of her babies. If the fox mom fails to return, then the pups will be taken to a licensed rehabilitation facility for animals.

Thus, they determined to set a trap, however the puppy was startled by walkers and took off running once again and the cage was taken into the parking garage, so the puppy would stay but this doesn’t work.
Finally, after 4 days, it was confirmed by some workers that the puppy was trapped in the cage and she was saved by Hope For Paws and they learned by her microchip that Viva was without home and family when her owner said she does not want the puppy anymore.
Fortunately, Foxy and the Hounds took Viva in to be fostered and felt happy and safe and she is waiting a forever home. Watch the video to have more information.

Asha, the hero in question, likely picked up the koala after it fell out of its mother’s pouch, the Daily Mail reports. Owner Kerry McKinnon found Asha with the tiny joey clinging to her fur.
“She looked a bit guilty when I came out to see what was going on. Her expression was hilarious,” McKinnon told News Australia.
With temperatures dropping to as low as 41 degrees Fahrenheit in the Australian state of Victoria, the koala, “never would have made it through the night,” McKinnon said. Add to that, the threat of roaming foxes and other predators, and Asha came along just at the right time.
“Asha definitely saved the koala’s life by keeping him warm. It would have died out there if left alone all night,” McKinnon said.
The koala joey actually fought back a bit as McKinnon tried to remove it from Asha’s fur.
“I think dogs have that protective instinct. The koala didn’t want to leave Asha’s back,” McKinnon said. “When we took the koala off to wrap it in a blanket, it hissed at me and carried on.”
The joey was taken to a veterinarian, where it was cleaned up and checked for any signs of disease. Later, a koala caretaker released the young koala back into the wild.
That may be the last McKinnon and Asha see of their little eucalyptus loving friend, but word of their experience has been spreading around social media quickly. Their story will not soon be forgotten.

But now that she’s been rescued from her abusive owner, she is determined to begin running again.
It’s nearly impossible to believe that anyone could actually be intentionally cruel to one of our beautiful canine friends.
When the dog Liszka was discovered by rescuers in Poland, she had been in a cage so long that contractures had developed on her legs, hardening her muscles and making it almost impossible for her to walk.
She was also terrified of people, and she would shake when anyone approached her.
Since she was a tiny puppy, her abusive owner forced her to lie in a tiny rust box surrounded by her own droppings. For months and months, the dog was cooped up in this tiny cage; and knew nothing of the outside world for so long.
She was so stationery that her back legs actually began to seize up from lack of use.
A veterinarian working with the Polish rescue group OTOZ Animals began massaging Liszka’s legs, which helps relax them enough that she could scramble across the floor.
While it’s terrible that her awful human abused her so horrifically, we can all be thankful that a group of rescuers happened to come across the poor animal begging for love. Her human was so aggressive to the rescue team that they actually had to call the police for help.
Since then, baby Liszka has been surrounded by humans who actually know how to treat their animals with respect. And while her legs are still in the process of healing; as she strengthens herself up and gets back to health; doctors are hopeful that she’ll be back to normal in no time!
Meanwhile, her abusive human is facing some hefty animal abuse charges — justice will be served!
Liszka was actually horrified of all humans when she was first rescued, but when you look at her face nowadays? It almost seems like she’s laughing because she loves the feeling of the earth under her paws so much!
For anyone who doesn’t believe that animals have emotions, you might want to watch this precious angel.
Now, with lots of practice and determination, the little pup has regained enough strength in her legs to walk and run.
Liszka is also much more comfortable around people. She has a new forever home with owners that love her and helped her learn to trust people again.
Liszka’s abusive former owner is being investigated by the police and will hopefully never be allowed to own a dog again.
Meanwhile, Liszka is living a happy life with owners who adore her. This brave little pup’s story has a wonderful happy ending.
