Tammy Carper is dedicated to helping animals, so much so that she risked her life to rescue 21 dogs under her care.
Carper of Bean Station, Tennessee, spends her days as a driver for Movin' on UP Volunteer Animal Rescue Transports. When she isn't helping pets get to their new homes, she is caring for them at her own residence, reports Dogster. Over the years, Carper has transformed her double-wide trailer into TLC Rescue, a safe haven for dogs until they find a forever family.
Unfortunately, now Carper and her dogs need to find a new place to live. On Jan 8., a fire – most likely started by a wood stove – quickly engulfed the woman's home with Carper and the dogs inside. The good news is that the animal rescuer acted quickly and selflessly, saving all 21 dogs under her care from the blaze.

These days Brooke Burton has a hard time keeping up with Dennis, her 6-year old Dachshund, who loves taking walks and chasing tennis balls. It's hard to believe that this rambunctious 13-lb. pooch is the same obese pet she discovered in 2013 at the home of an elderly relative.
"My great-uncle was a hoarder, and I went over there to help clean his house," Burton tells PEOPLE. "Then I saw this thing coming toward me like a slug. He would take a few steps and then have to rest."
Burton, 27, took Dennis – who weighed 56 lbs. thanks to a diet of fast food burgers, pizza and frozen dinners – back to her Columbus, Ohio, home, effectively saving his life.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet George, an albino Doberman pinscher currently being fostered through the OK Save a Dog Society of Prague, Oklahoma.
Because of his genetic condition, this 2-year-old needs special care from his next owner. In the summer, he's in danger of getting a sunburn and in the winter, he's in danger of freezing.
He has beautiful blue eyes that need special protection from the sun (he'd be grateful if his next owner bought him some doggy sunglasses). Though people spend extra time tending to his skin, he's unfazed. George is a "gentle giant," says the rescue's founder Kim Bowers, "who needs a buddy to play with."

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong took to the power of Instagram and his 436,000 followers to help track down a couple's stolen dog.
The search began when a thief broke into David Baker and Cassandra Niki's San Francisco apartment and stole personal belongings and their beloved pitbull Mochi over the weekend, CBS San Francisco reported.
The rocker, 42, got word about the stolen dog from former professional skateboarder Jim Thiebaud, who called on the Bay Area community via Instagram to join the search. Armstrong quickly reposted the alert to his own feed Monday, immediately garnering thousands of likes.

The utter confusion on the pup's face is pee-the-tree HILARIOUS! He just makes us want to cuddle him and tell him it's ok, sound CAN be weird like that.

The Today show rolled out the red carpet – and fire hydrants! – on Wednesday, in honor of a special new cohost.
Guiding Eyes for the Blind has temporarily given the morning show a 10-week-old yellow Labrador retriever puppy to train as a guide dog.
"This is a really great experience both for Guiding Eyes and for the puppy," said Saxon Eastman, a trainer for the non-profit organization, who gives guide dogs free of charge to individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
"This is going to be an awesome socialization experience for him. That's really what we're looking for, to put him on the right track to being a guide dog someday."

You might remember this furry face from another pet video. Pixel is the same pup who tried to dethrone the cat sibling who snagged his bed.

But since Humphrey is just a baby, he doesn't quite understand what recycling is. He does know it has something to do with taking care of plastic bottles, so he is giving it his best shot.
