It's raining cats and dogs and they need some help.
Even though Hurricane Joaquin will move off into the Atlantic and not make landfall on the eastern seaboard, it still brought devastating weather to some parts of America.
South Carolina has had over two feet of rain in the past few days and it's caused a great deal of grief across the state.
Some of the most innocent victims of the storm has been the dogs and cats that have found themselves out in the storm, lost without their owners.
Well, the https://www.facebook.com/scpetsSouth Carolina Pets Facebook page has dedicated itself to providing a place where owners could report lost animals and those who found strays could connect with the owners.
As they say in the description:
This page was created to give people a broader audience to post lost & found notices rather just on random stop signs and utility poles in the community. We have often felt the concern of taking a found pet to a local shelter and then wondering if we could have done more to reunite them with their families. We wanted to bridge the gap between families who have missing pets and the benevolent individuals who go out of their way to try and rescue them.
They've already had some success stories!
Hopefully, everyone is staying safe out there.
Tumblr user Obvious Plant (aka Jeff Wysaski/PleatedJeans) is known for conducting some pretty clever pranks in which he “plants” fake signs around shops and other public spots around L.A.
One that recently got a lot of attention involved him placing some fake self-help books like “So You’re Son is a Centaur” among real books at a store in West Hollywood.
He’s also trolled a wine shop with some custom recommendations.
For his latest stunt, Wysaski stopped by a local pet shop and added a few of his own descriptions to some of the animals’ tanks and cages.
“Sometimes, you’ve just got to take it into your own hands to expand a store’s product line,” he writes.
These included everything from Guy Fieri hamsters and baby Godzillas to invisible fish and judgmental tree frogs.
Here are a few below, but you can check out the full set and more of his work on his Tumblr.
A heroic rescue was captured on video this week as a Colombian police officer leapt into a raging river to save a small dog from drowning after a deadly mudslide ravaged the region.
The cops were searching for survivors when they noticed the animal floating down the Liboriana River, and so they started chasing after it down the bank.
The video shows one of the cops jumping in and struggling against the current before scooping it up and bringing it to safety.
He then performs CPR on the dog (including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) to help bring it back to life.
“Principe” has since recovered from the incident and is now “in good hands,” according to the police.
The force is strong with this one.
A little kid is jumping around in front of some caged dogs at a pet shop when one of the animals decides to take action.
Watch as the boy tumbles backwards to the ground as the dog leaps towards the glass.
Jedi dog FTW.
Oh my god… Chewy!
This girl was just filming herself (vertically… ugh) practicing some yoga moves when her little dog wandered into the shot.
Then BOOM, Chewy gets lauched into space before transitioning into downward dog.
Looks like he was just a little shaken up but otherwise seems to be ok.
And the laziest pet owner of the year award goes to this guy.
A man was spotted this week “walking” his dog around a parking lot in Dubai, the only problem was that he never got out of his car.
Local artist Jim Wheat spotted the scene and took a photo, saying he initially thought the dog was a bear because it was so big.
“It was like a dog on a treadmill,” he said.
They duo did 5 laps around the lot at about 3 mph before driving away.
Never before has a soda commercial made you feel so many things all at once.
In this new ad for Dr. Pepper, a lonely stray mop dog is wandering the streets looking for a friend.
He finds one in a compassionate delivery truck driver, but will he keep him?
You’ll have to watch to find out.
Before all the comment wars start: Dean Potter is an expert jumper who has done many stunts with live human beings strapped to his back before. This is no amateur move. And hey, his pup Whisper seems to have a pretty good time!
