Or would you rescue the dog yourself? Here are five stories of heart warming and inspiring animals and the people who rescued them that touched our hearts.

Certain countries like China, Thailand,and South Korea have billion-dollar dog meat trades.Dogs are bound with wire and beaten to make their flesh more tender.

Number 4. Flash Gordon, the hooked sea lion
We see and hear stories of marine animals being rescued from ropes wrapped around their necks or nets trapping their whole bodies. One of the most famous rescues involved a sea lion and a foot-long fishing hook.
In 2011, the Marine Mammal Rescue received an urgent call regarding a male California sea lion. When the rescuers arrived at Vancouver Island, they discovered that the sea lion had a fishing line hanging from his cheek and he had two hooks, one near the gastrointestinal tract and another near his heart!
Number 3. Nala, the Instagram Guinness World

Only one kitten was left of the entire litter when a lady named Pookie visited the shelter. Pookie was just looking around. She had no plans to adopt right away. But she picked up a tiny kitten that licked her face and she fell in love. Pookie named the kitten Nala. Nala in shelter or cats in
Number 2. Kahn and Sheila, the Abused Lions Circuses are supposed to be happy places. But some circuses don’t care about anything but getting money. This is why people from In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Texas fought to rescue Kahn and Sheila from an abusive owner.The former owner stopped taking care of lions that he could no longer use.The duo were in pitiful states when the rescuers found them. Kahn had weak bones. He couldn’t move the rear part of his body. He was limping. His tail was almost chewed off. Sheila was worse. She was practically dead and experts believed that only euthanasia was the option for her. Luckily the rescuers discovered that she had toxoplasmosis which affected her immune system and appetite. They managed to give her the proper Kahn and Sheila lions in circuses
