If you’ve made it here, then you know nothing puts a bigger smile on our faces than an adorable animal doing what they do best. Puppies do the darndest things and we have them all here.

Here’s a great story about great parents, both animal and humans. Pit bulls Alfie and Frankie were found five years ago, locked in a shed and starving to death. Lucky for them, they soon met amazing human mom and pet rescue volunteer Sherry Stewart and her daughter.

Maru, the box aficionado, is a cardboard king who lives his life by the mantra “if I fits, I sits”. He’s gathered over 20k followers on Instagram but his real claim to fame is his YouTube channel. He’s got hundreds of so-cute-you-want-to-die videos where he’ll squeeze his fluffy kitty body into much too small boxes.

While this tiny Boston terrier lacks the use of his back legs, he makes up for it with a big positive attitude. And not only that, he’s able to keep up and even runs faster than his four-legged buddies!

BooBoo the cat’s story started in 2013 when she was found by Ashley Aleman. Only a few months old, BooBoo was a stray that was lucky to be found by Ashley and her sister. Their parents had said they couldn’t get a cat and they already had a pit bull, so the sisters hid BooBoo for a week.

A year ago, Pigcasso was a piglet born in a factory farm in South Africa. If she wasn’t saved by her human Joanne, she would be bacon by now. Instead, she’s grown into a true renaissance hog, painting colorful works of art inspired by her beautiful coastal home in Cape Town.

We can all agree French bulldogs are pretty much peak cute already. But how about frenchies playing soccer? But also playing to support a charity?

April 11th is National Pet Day! Grab your fur baby and show them some love. If you’re pet-less you can still observe the most important holiday of the year by heading down to an animal shelter to do some good.

Have you heard the famous story of Butkus Stallone who was tragically separated from his human before being reunited and starring in the film Rocky? Sylvester Stallone got Butkus when he was just a tiny puppy in 1971. This is when he was a struggling actor and could barely afford food or housing for him or Butkus.

Last month, we covered the heartwarming story of Sir Patrick Stewart and his foster pit bull Ginger. Stewart was so inspired by Ginger’s love and the good humans at L.A.’s Wags and Walks (who set him up with the rescued pit bull), he’s joined the fight against dog fighting. Stewart hasn’t had a dog in over 50 years, but he’s said the short time fostering Ginger has changed his outlook on dogs and also life.

Meet Nala Cat, if this isn’t your first time on the internet you’ve probably seen her before. The kitty has stunted legs, big periwinkle eyes and, according to MSN, makes $15,500 for each sponsored post. She was adopted by owner Varisiri Mathachittiphan on a whim.
