There are an estimated 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets of India.

With poorly lit roads, these pups often end up causing accidents or becoming roadkill.

To save strays from being mowed down by vehicles, a non-profit organization called Motopaws has come up with an initiative to fit as many dogs as possible with reflective collars made from donated denim. While it’s certainly not a solution to the stray problem, it goes a long way toward saving lives.

What an ingenious way to help these pups.

It’s not a bad idea for domestic dogs either! For those late-night walks around the block.

You can find out more information about Motopaws on their Facebook page.

An amazing Australian animal sanctuary called Edgar’s Mission has been rescuing unwanted farm animals since 2003. Believing that sheep, pigs, cows, and all farm animal deserve just as much love as any other living creature, Edgar’s Mission has been working hard to give these often neglected animals the best lives possible.

Recently, they took in a frail newborn lamb called Soda Pop. Unable to walk, staff didn’t expect her to make it through the night, but the tiny fighter did! Seeing how much of a determined trooper Soda Pop was, one of the carers came up with the idea of helping her gain strength in her legs by having her walk with the aid of a shopping bag.

After seven extraordinary days, she did it! Soda Pop could walk all by herself!

This is almost too precious to handle.

The caring folks at Edgar’s Mission have given Soda Pop and so many other lambs before her the ability and comfort to bounce around with joy. If you want to help them in their mission, please consider making a donation here.
