9 Yr Old Boy Saved The Puppies When The Rescue Team Lost All Hope.
Have you ever looked at a child and thought wow they sure can do some pretty amazing things. Well you know those children can teach us adults a thing or two. Here are 9 amazing children who go above and beyond especially when it comes to animals.
1. Volunteers for the South Charlotte Dog Rescue in North Carolina were in a real bind when they tried to save a dog and her litter that were trapped inside an underground drainage ditch.
But 9-year-old Rafe Spuler just happened to be there when he was desperately needed. The boy crawled into the dark tunnel and was able to hand all five of the puppies to members of the rescue unit.
All of the puppies were reunited with their mom a short time later and were put into a foster care facility.
2. Zach Ford is only 6 years old and already he’s become quite an expert in fundraising. In 2015, he raised $150 from family and friends to go toward the World Wildlife Fund to help save the tigers.
He since has begun a project to raise money for the Bornean orangutan, which is an endangered species, and the Sumatran orangutan, which is critically endangered.
3. 3-year-old Ollie Augustus was absolutely appalled when he visited the Healesville Sanctuary in Australia.
And he took down zoo officials pretty fast, calling them “not nice people” and saying the animals at the sanctuary “just want to be free.”
4. 6-year-old Mia Rabii was out on a leisurely stroll with her mom when suddenly, a family asked them for their help. The family had come across a mother duck that was searching for her ducklings, which, as it turns out, had fallen down a drainage pipe.
The family had tried to get the baby ducks out but their arms were too big to fit into the pipes. So Mia steps up, with her tiny little 6-year-old arm, and carefully draws out each and every duckling to reunite it with its mom.
5. In Gurgaon, India, 9-year-old Neal Batra is selling all of his old comic books through social media sites to raise money to feed stray animals.
He has sold close to 60 of his books, including Archie, Jungle Book and Pokemon. So far, he has raised just over $30 and plans to get more money by baking and selling cakes.
6. You think elephants don’t know who their friends are?
When Darrick Thomson, co-founder of the Save the Elephants Foundation, was in Thailand, he called out to a baby elephant named Kham Lha. The small elephant walking along the shore heard him and interpreted his call as a cry for help.
She sprinted to him and sheltered him with her body as she offered her trunk for him to hold onto. Now how cool is that?
The foundation has rescued more than 70 elephants.
7. When Sean Hutton was 7, he did his first Polar Bear Walk to School Day, with about five people joining him. He did this to raise awareness for the polar bear, and has caught the attention of the World Wildlife Fund.
When he now does the annual Polar Bear Walk to School Day, he’s joined with about 500 others students from many schools. The WWF encourages others to join in and do the same.
8. Every morning before school, an unnamed 11-year-old boy ate a quick breakfast then ran out to lead a blind deer to food. It’s uncertain how he came across the deer, but there must have been some quick trust from both the boy and the deer. He would lead it to nearby grassy patches and made sure it had enough to eat. Then, he was off to school.
A neighbor snapped a shot to share on social media. He then called an animal rescue group to see if they could take care of the deer. The group arrived, safely picked up the deer and took it too a wildlife preserve.
9. 2-year-old Scarlette suffered with, but beat, a rare form of cancer. But through it, he left arm had to be amputated. But soon after, the little girl was united with a very special cat… who had only three legs. And their connection was instant.
Scarlette sees that Doc has the same struggles as herself, and Doc is in cat heaven when that little girl is around.
Bonus story: Patrick is an African pea farmer but a big part of his heart is taking care of the wildlife that roams the country.
So he often visits a local watering hole to replenish that very vital fluid for elephants, zebras, lions and buffalos.
He makes about a 30-mile journey four times a week to deliver 12,000 litres of water per visit, and it costs him around $326 every time he does it.
