Animal rescue stories are always heartwarming, but you might not expect a fish rescue story to be. Despite people getting fish as pets so commonly, most people don't know how hard taking care of a pet fish can be. And in this story, unfortunately, the family who had the now not-so-ugly 'Ugly Ivan' not only didn't take care of him well but neglected and abused him. 

Most people probably wouldn't work so hard to rescue a fish, but NotaScientologiston imgurdid. Surprisingly, people responded with more love than any of us expected, with Ugly Ivan going viral over and over again. People wanted to know more about his story, and people wanted him to survive, and luckily, people are getting both of these things.

Training cats to do anything... has a tendency to go wrong, but to succeed at teaching cats tricks is almost unheard of. Not for this Chinese ex-soldier though. This amazing man was a dog trainer in the army and today has dogs of his own that he likes to train. The thing is, one day, a stray cat came into his life and waltzed its way right into this dog-loving soldier's heart. 

From the beginning, the cat spent a lot of time with the dog and, watching the dogs do tricks with his owner, the cat would sometimes copy the dog. Today, what he does is absolutely amazing, doing the kind of amazing tricks that we've never seen, even jumping onto his owner's shoulder on command.

Tumblr Thread: Mourning Dog Befriends Duck And Gets Happy Again

Losing someone is always hard - for all of us. Apparently, that is true for animals as well. And it was especially true for George the dog. He had lost his very best doggo friend and has been heartbroken for 2 years since his passing, acting depressed and tired, not smiling nearly as much as he used to

But then one day, something amazing happened. Out of nowhere, a duck waddled into George's life and absolutely insisted on the two of them becoming best friends. And lo and behold, a heartwarming interspecies friendship developed. Soon, George began smiling again, and seeing him happy made us smile just as much.

Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming.

Sometimes, even the most loving animal mommas let go of their little babies in nature, and though it makes us sad, we can only hope that these babies will find someone who will make sure that they are taken care of. Luckily, our world is full of amazing humans, and this adorable itty bitty baby bear has found itself in good hands.

Not only did these humans take care of this little baby bear, but they also introduced it to his now new best friend! There was some trepidation in their relationship at first, but it took one play session for them to fall in love with each other. And when they were finally released back into the wild, they were released together. It's a wholesome, happy ending all around, and we are so glad we get to see it.
