As anyone who has volunteered at a shelter knows, developing a deep connection to the animals happens as instantaneously, and surprisingly, as a teenage crush.
When fine art dog photographer Jesse Freidin, 34, realized this, he decided to spend a year taking more than 100 moving portraits of homeless cats, dogs and the humans who care for them in a project called Finding Shelter.

With a name like Deuce, this puppy was born to get second chances.
On Tuesday, Deuce, who is missing his front paws, moved into a loving forever home, but the disabled pup's future wasn't always so bright, as KUSA reports.
Deuce's original owner left the dog at a Texas animal shelter to be euthanized. Luckily, Colorado's Evergreen Animal Protective League saw promise in the puppy and rescued him from his dire situation. Now he has made one more move, becoming a permanent member of Melissa and Ken Rogers' family.

If we could, we'd deliver a pint of cookie dough ice cream and freshly laundered sweatpants to you every morning. We know you're going through a tough time right now; we feel the same way. Instead of spending the summer worrying about, say, which filter to use on our vacation photos, we're clutching our pillows – in all of their tear-stained glory – asking the universe, "Why? Why are you so cruel? Who hurt you so badly that you decided to ruin love for the rest of us?"

Benji the Yorkshire terrier doesn't look like your typical Jean-Claude Van Damme action star, but this pup really knows how to throw his ten pounds around.
On Thursday, Benji's owner, Larry Yepez, was attacked by a black bear outside his Midpines, California, home reports The Washington Post. The 66-year-old man had just stepped out of his house in the early morning when a 200-lb. bear suddenly charged at him. Yepez tried to fight off the animal with a flower pot, but soon the bear was on top of him, biting at his hands, face and arms.
