What A Woman Recorded On Her Helmet Cam Is So Miraculous And Heroic, You’ll Be In Awe

Funny
Many motorcyclists like to add a handy GoPro camera to their helmet to capture all the amazing views of a good ride. This woman, whose name is Laney, captured something much more miraculous while she was out for a ride in her Oklahoma hometown. She was waiting at a busy intersection when she noticed something fall from one of the passing cars. At first she thought it was just a loose leaf (and you will, too!), but soon realized it was actually a small, terrified kitten. Without a second thought, she immediately jumped into action. Laney signalled to oncoming traffic and scooped the little guy up with the help of another woman standing by: She was as shaken up as the little guy, who was thankfully unharmed.

If you're an animal lover, you've probably been following the incredible case of a little pup named Libre. In fact, we here at ViralNova wrote about his outstanding recovery last month. The poor dog dealt with horrific abuse and neglect, which resulted in a painful skin condition and a level of malnutrition that almost killed him. Fortunately, Libre is a fighter and the teams from Speranza Animal Rescue and the Dillsburg Veterinary Center never gave up on the determined dog. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); What really struck readers, however, was the fact that no charges were filed against the people who almost ended this animal's life.

They were still alive and crawling around! Arron Culling decided to take action. He bought the two turtles, and instead of eating them that night, he did something amazing with them.

If you've ever been to an animal shelter, you've probably seen the sad faces of old animals looking for forever homes. The heartbreaking reality is that many senior animals are immediately euthanized when they're surrendered to shelters. When potential adopters stroll through shelters to find new four-legged friends, they often pass over pups with grey faces. Day after day, senior dogs walk to the front of their kennels to find someone to take them home, and day after day, they're left behind.But when Colorado-based accountant Steve Greig visits shelters, he doesn't ignore grey noses. In fact, he seeks them out. This is Steve Greig.
