What a delight to witness the first few moments of life!
This footage of a new born elephant calf was captured on Lewa recently at the onset of the rains. At any one time, the Lewa-Borana landscape provides a safe home to approximately 400-600 of Northern Kenya's migratory elephants.
Long may you roam, little one!

This is Trumps son. PURE EVIL. This image breaks me. Please sign the petition. LINK IN MY BIO PLEASE HELP US SHARE THIS PETITION TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS.... The elephants need us. TRUMP is legalizing "trophy hunting" of endangered African elephants. His administration has literally claimed that hunting elephants "can benefit the conservation" of the species. This is factually inaccurate, morally repugnant, and assumes that the public can't tell the difference between "conservation" and "slaughter." Sign this petition to condemn Trump's legalization of trophy hunting.
Now it's our turn to ask for help: #signpetition #trump #endangeredelephants #endangeredspecies #trophyhunting - FROM. @ALEX_AND_MALAK
I can't wrap my brain around the idea of harming an animal. These people are just heartless monsters! #choosecrueltyfree
BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOUR MONEY SUPPORTS. ALWAYS BUY CRUELTY FREE MAKEUP AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS, EVERYDAY HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS, OTHER JUNK. THESE ITEMS ARE HEAVILY TESTED ON ANIMALS.

URGENT....CAN SOMEONE SAVE THESE POOR BABIES!!? IN SOUTH FLORIDA. THEY DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE KILL SHELTER. JUST LOOK AT THEM.

This upsetting post is from the amazing Johnny @urgentdogsofla URGENT
First of all, you must follow him...the work he's doing is incomparable! Also, if you want to make a donation, this is a great organization to donate to. He's down to earth and trustworthy.
Here is his message:
This has to be one of the saddest #ownersurrender I have ever witnessed. The landlord who had to bring these #chihuahuas in was devastated because one of his tenants couldn’t pay his rent and just skipped out and left them at the apartment. To make matters worse one of them nipped him while he was trying to pick them up, and obviously they are frightened and miss their owners. Now they are both rescue only. I personally picked them up myself to help them get inside and they were loving to me when I used kindness and experience to handle them. This case is breaking our hearts and very unfair to these poor dogs to be #rescueonly.
Please share and let’s give them a chance to not live in fear anymore #A1741088 #A1741086

"That's one sad, unhappy, upset cow. She wants her baby. Bellowing for it, hunting for it. It's like grieving, mourning - not much written about it. People don't like to allow those thoughts or feelings." Temple Grandin Ph.D professor of Animal Science CSU
Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do - to nourish their young - but calves born on dairy farms are taken from their mothers when they are just one day old and fed milk replacers so that humans can have the milk instead.
What will happen to these babies? Few consumers realize that veal is a direct by-product of the dairy industry. In order for dairy cows to produce milk, they must be impregnated. While female calves are slaughtered or added to the dairy herd, many male calves are taken from their mothers when they are as young as one day old and chained in tiny stalls to be raised for veal. The confinement is so extreme that they cannot even turn around or lie down comfortably.
Cows are extremely gentle and affectionate animals, forming strong bonds with one another, particularly between mother and child. As Dr Michael Klaper recalls,"the very saddest sound in my memory was burned into my awareness at age 5 on my uncle dairy farm in Wisconsin. A cow have given birth to a beautiful male calf... On the second day after birth, my uncle took the calf from the mother and placed him in the veal pain in the barn - only 10 yards away, in plain view of his mother. The mother cow could see her infant, smell him, hear him, but could not touch him, comfort him, or nurse him. The heart rendering bellows that she poured forth-minute after minute, hour after hour, for 5 long days - were excruciating to listen to. They are the most poignant and painful auditory memories I carry in my brain."

This is Lola’s Story. “Lola” and “Ina” were captured by dog meat traders in Sukabumi (West Java) whilst we were conducting our nationwide investigations. There was a chance to save them… and that is one we always take.
Both Lola and Ina were terrified, but Lola regained trust and bounced back quickly under the care of our teams. Whilst Ina needed some more time and care, Lola was quickly fostered alongside another rescue dog – Charlie – and they soon became good friends… and were adopted by their forever family together!
Lola now lives the life she deserves … and what always shocks us most about these dogs that have endured so much brutality, is their ability to forgive all they have endured and to love life again.
So, in honour of those we are able to save, we will keep fighting for those who are still waiting for change.
But we need YOUR help!
Please, sign our petition! Www.DogMeatFreeIndonesia.orh
Ini kisah si Lola "LOLA" dan "INA" ditangkap oleh pedagang anjing di Sukabumi (Jawa Barat) ketika kami sedang melakukan investigasi skala nasional kami. Dan ketika ada kesempatan untuk menyelamatkan mereka, kami langsung lakukan.
Lola dan Ina sangat ketakutan, tetapi Lola bisa percaya lagi kepada manusia dan kembali ramah selama dalam masa perawatan team kami. Sementara Ina lebih membutuhkan waktu dan perawatan, Lola kemudian dengan cepat mendapat orangtua asus bersama seekor anjing rescue juga yang bernama Charlie dan mereka menjadi sahabat, kemudian keduanya diadopsi oleh keluarga baru!
Lola kini mendapat kehidupan yang ia layak dapatkan.. dan yang selalu membuat kami tidak percaya adalah, betapa anjing yang telah mengalami kekejaman yang brutal dapat memaafkan manusia dan mencintai manusia lagi.
Jadi, untuk menghormati mereka yang dapat kami selamatkan, kami akan terus berjuang untuk mereka yang masih menunggu perubahan.
Tapi kami butuh bantuanmu!

This is what Nosey's life was before she was rescued and taken to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. She's currently roaming and free from chains and free from the bullhook and free from giving people rides but now they're fighting to get her back to live this life of misery.
Nosey suffers from arthritis which is an agonizing medical condition for captive elephants.
Dr. Philip K. Ensley D.V.M., Dpl. ACZM states "THIS IS THE WORST, MOST PROLONGED, DOCUMENTED EXAMPLE OF AN UNCORRECTED CASE OF SUFFERING AND ABUSE IN AN ELEPHANT I HAVE EVER REVIEWED".
Knowing there is an actual Go Fund Me page that's raised 10 thousand dollars to RETURN her back to these animal abusers is repulsive to me. She's sick and they want to put her back to work. She's even had her legs buckle while giving rides. She deserves health care, love and respect. She's not an entertainer and shame on everyone who's donated to actually return her this horrific life of abuse.

Ziyuu's mum has undergone brain surgery to stop bleeding and relieve pressure on the brain. She is out of surgery and the next 24 hours are critical.
She is in the intensive care unit and will remain there until she is stable.
Soon she will need to have the metal pins put in her feet where the bones have been shattered.
Every day the medical and hospital stay charges are increasing. Please help if you can, any about helps.
Also please send healing blue energy and hope to this beautiful family.
Thank you all for your care and compassion to our sister and friend. #sharingiscaring #pleasedonate

PLEASE HELP, SHARE CHLOE, SHE DESERVES A TRUE AND RESPONSIBLE LOVING HOME BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE Repost from @urgentdogsofla Chloe is a is a very special case to us here @urgentdogsofla Just a few days ago she got the chance of her life to go to her forever home, but unfortunately before that she was brought to the shelter as a clearly abused and neglected #rotweiler mix. We have no doubt she’s been through hell and needed the right responsible home to break her from her fears, but instead she was adopted out by an inexperienced family that allowed one of their brothers to rambunctiously try to play with her and she bit him. It was not a serious bite but it may of given her a death sentence now @eastvalleyshelter She’s already been through hell let’s share her to all the rescues and we know we can find someone to believe in this precious 2 year old girl Becuase we stand by her percent #A1703809 #rotweillerofinstagram #adoptdontshop #endanimalcruelty #endanimalabuse #endanimalsuffering #savealife #shelterdog #shelterdogs #sharingsaveslives #help #urgentdog #rescueonly @rottweilers_of_insttagram @rottiegirl_1 @therottweilerworld @rottweilerlover @beastymermaid @romeosweethome
They were born in a cage. Mask trained, and forced to inhale aerosols. They look like puppies, but are a year old.
When we liberated them, they were terrified, foaming at the mouth. They were rescued from a cosmetic testing facility owned by an American corporation in Asia. Imagine being tested on everyday of your life. For cosmetics, makeup, detergents - just so someone can feel beautiful.
This video, it highlights some of their first moments. First time on grass. First walk in the park.

OMG! Mom just found out about this handsome pup, @apupnamedsquish! His rescue story is amazing and everyone should go check it out! Apollo #Repost @apupnamedsquish
#tbt I have been looking at all of Squish's first birthday pictures from last March in preparation for his new brother's first birthday. Squish has grown in many ways this past year that I have been lucky enough to call him my own. He never ceases to amaze me or bring a smile to my face. I too, have grown tremendously because of him. He has inspired me in ways I never imagined and filled a void in my heart I thought would never be touched again after losing rescue pups over the years. For those of you that have rescue animals, support rescues, or give any animal (rescued or not) a loving home, I want to say a huge thank you. For those of you considering a rescue animal, please do so if you can take on the responsibilities. I promise, they will be the ones rescuing you #adoptdontshop #throwbackthursday

BENNY & MIKE
A TOUCHING AFRICAN STORY
Summer 2015 was an especially harsh dry season in Botswana, and elephants would arrive each day in their hundreds at the small waterhole at Elephant Sands lodge and campsite in northeast Botswana. Such were the queues of thirsty #elephants that some would wait for up to 18 hours for their turn for life-saving #water.
Benny arrived with a fanfare, trumpeting loudly and venturing a bit too close to campers. Elephant Sands manager Mike Toth repeatedly chased Benny away, but he kept returning. Realising it was water he was after, Mike filled up the water trough near one of the campsite bathrooms. The newly named Benny came to drink, and let Mike spray him with water, from a safe distance.
This became the routine over the next few days, with Mike filling up the trough and Benny coming to drink. But then Benny did something strange and extraordinary – he pointed to Mike with his trunk then rubbed his injured foot three times.
A few days later the festering wound had split open and Benny was visibly feverish, and so Mike decided to phone the vet. Benny was tranquillised and emergency operation was performed to remove a piece of wood lodged in his foot.
For days later, Benny was back. Recognising his old friend, Mike walked right up to him and gave him some water. Over the coming months, Benny would arrive at camp, seek Mike out and the two would go through the routine of greetings and provision of water, with Mike doing an assessment of the injury and of Benny’s recovery. The greetings and personal contact increased as the two came to trust each other. Mike always made sure that Benny initiated the first contact.
This friendship has endured since then, with Benny returning every dry season to wait by the lodge for fresh water and his old friend.
Mike Toth and his family have established Water for Elephants Trust, to provide much needed borehole water for elephants and other species in the arid Kalahari of northeast Botswana.

It's hard to watch any animal suffer like this little girl suffered. The dog meat trade is a horrific neverending nightmare for these animals. Thank you for rescuing her from the darkness and showing her not all human beings are savages.
#Repost @animalhopeandwellness - “To let you die, it would have been like killing myself.”
That strong. That hard. That perseverant. How you can suffer through so much, and then in end forgive them.
They broke her nose. Severed her ear. Cut off all her feet. When we rescued her, people were upset we did not put her down. It is the suffering that makes it real. The way we stand there in the dark, and fight to save ourselves.
Teach me how to love again. Teach me to be that strong. When I touch your skin. When I hold you dying there in my arms - you make me feel human.
The most amazing transformation of the year. Second chances. Strength. Courage...
Everything we are not.
(Special thanks to Lindsay Lewis and Alice Christensen, for rehabbing her, and taking the time to give her the chance she needed.
The strongest I have ever known - Happy.)

After months of campaigning Nosey is finally free!!!
BREAKING: #Nosey the elephant has been seized from her abuser! Nosey has been suffering for decades under her handler, Hugo Liebel. She was torn from her family, and had been chained, threatened with a bullhook, and denied adequate veterinary care ever since. She shows signs of painful arthritis. Now she’s finally going to receive the attention, respect, and care she deserves THANK YOU to all those who spoke out! PETA pledges to continue working on her behalf until she is permanently settled in a spacious sanctuary home at last.
