It’s hard not to be biased and full of love for animals. After all, animals are loyal and give us so much in return for so little. If you have ever had a pet, you would know that your pets love you like no one can. They spend hours sitting by the door just to hear you come back from work. They wait patiently for you to give them some attention and care and they most certainly will take a bullet for you.

Three Lions and the 12-Year-Old Ethiopian Girl
In 2005, a group of four men kidnapped a 12-year-old girl in rural South-West Ethiopia. The men kept the child with them for an entire week. They would often also beat her and were trying to force her into marriage. Back in 2005, abductions that led to the marriage were quite common in rural Ethiopia. The police were on a lookout for the four men. However, they had so far been unsuccessful in their pursuits. While the police could not find the men, three lions did. They attacked the three kidnappers and made them flee. More importantly, they stood guard for the girl until the police arrived. Some animal experts believe that the lions heard the girl’s cry and thought she was a cub. Whatever it was, this is a truly remarkable story.

The Parrot Who Cried ‘Mama, Baby!’
One of the most endearing as well as intriguing qualities of parrots is their ability to mimic human speech — parrots can memorize things and say it exactly like their humans. Though this attribute is annoying at times, it turned out to be a life-saving quality for Hannah Howard. Hannah was having breakfast when she choked on her food. As soon as her pet parrot Willie saw this, he started shouting ‘Mama, baby!’ When Megan Howard, Hanna’s mother, heard the parrot’s cries, she rushed into the kitchen and helped her daughter. Willie saved Hannah’s life and was awarded the Animal Lifesaver Award by the Red Cross. Truly well deserved.
September 11, 2001, will forever remain etched as one of the darkest and most horrifying days in American history. Fear and terror ruined America for a few hours but Americans maintained their courage and provided help to the victims. The work of these courageous Americans was supported by about 100 search-and-rescue dogs. Their rigorous training and an acute sense of smell allowed these dogs to help rescue workers rescue thousands of Americans from the rubble of the World Trade Centre. Other than working 24/7 to rescue human beings, these dogs also comforted those who had lost closed ones and shared their grief with them. America will never forget these four-legged heroes.
