For the last year, photographer Theron Humphrey has been traveling the United states capturing the stories of people who have accepted rescued pets into their lives for his “Why We Rescue.” With the help of Purina, he is out to help change the public’s perception of adopted rescue animals as especially temperamental or unhealthy.

Pets and people share a very special bond when they grow up together, which is why we’ve compiled a list of pictures of people and their pets growing up and sometimes growing old together. Because of their shorter lifespans, dogs, cats and other domestic animals tend to grow out of their juvenile forms relatively quickly. In a few months, that cute and doofy puppy that’s tripping all over himself will be galloping between your legs enthusiastically, and in a few months more he or she will be approaching their adult size.
Penny the chicken and Roo the two-legged Chihuahua are the latest unlikely animal pals to go viral for their adorable good looks, beautiful friendship and heartwarming survival stories. The two friends met each other through Alicia Williams, who works at Duluth Animal Hospital in the U.S. She saved both animals from almost certain death.
What’s cuter than a sleeping bear cub? Two sleeping bear cubs. Here are 31 photos of animals cuddling up and sleeping together in blissful slumber. These animals may have drastically different sleep times and requirements, but all of them look adorable while doing it. We hope they give you sweet dreams.
A photographer in Bangladesh has captured photographs of a daring and heartwarming rescue hero that will restore your faith in humanity. When a baby deer was separate from its family by a flooded river in Noakhali, Bangladesh, its chances for survival were slim. But Belal, a local boy believed to be in his early teens, braved the rainwater-swollen river to reunite the fawn with its family.
We’ve already showed you a collection of beautiful animal friendships from around the world, but there’s one little corner where there’s a whole lot of unexpected animal friendships all in one place. The Rocky Ridge Refuge in Arkansas is home to a huge bunch of animals, all of which seem to get along extraordinarily well. The animal refuge was set up by owner Janice Wolf 20 years ago to help both wildlife and domestic animals in need of medical care or new homes.
When Ichimi the kitten was rejected by her mother, Ponzu the golden retriever and his owner Jessiepon took her in and have begun nursing her back to full health. Ichimi has taken very well to her guardian Ponzu – the two play together all the time, and Ponzu even cleans and sleeps together with Ichimi. Judging by the pictures on Jessiepon’s Instagram account, Ichimi is growing stronger by the day.
Cats and dogs are cool enough on their own, but just in case you weren’t convinced about this verified fact, here are some famous people with their pets to convince you. Given how most of the pet owners on this list are larger-than-life celebrities, it’s nice to know that even they enjoyed the company of pets just like we do. Sure, maybe not all of us can afford an ocelot like Salvador Dali, but it’s nice to know that even he had a cat to scratch behind the ears from time to time.
We’ve written about how the world around us changes during the winter, but that’s not the only thing that changes; throughout the animal kingdom, birds and beasts that live in colder climates have special adaptations to help them survive the winter’s harsh weather. The animals in some of these photos may look like they’re freezing, but that’s not 100% certain – in most cases, the photographers are probably colder than the animals that they’ve photographed.
Sometimes, people and animals have more in common than you might think. Blaze, the beautiful young Husky in this video, is obstinately resisting his owner’s suggestion that he go to sleep in his kennel. In this case, the owner is just doing it to tease the pup, but all of us have probably resisted our bedtimes just at fiercely at one point or another. And because he’s a Husky, which is a very verbose breed, it sounds just like he’s saying “No!”
Check out this excellent collection of adorable and beautiful animals – with mustaches. The vintage aesthetic is one of the biggest trends out there right now, so the mustache (and the beard along with it) is making a big comeback. Combining them with cute animals, then, is a sure-fire recipe for awesomeness. No one’s 100% sure why people have beards and mustaches, but there are plenty of fellas (and a few ladies) out there who enjoy wearing mustaches, and a few animals that do too.
They say that “the harder you practice, the luckier you get” and the Netherlands-based wildlife photographer Edwin Kats is a living proof of this. Surrounded by forests, ponds and heathland, Kats finds inspiration within a 10 mile radius of his home, but it takes months and sometimes years to take a truly good photo.
