We always receive the warmest of welcomes from our wonderful animal companions as we return home, but have you wondered what they do while we are away? Are you aware of any other skills they have apart from shaking our hands and catching frisbes? 

As we watch the little turtle basking in the sun laying on a stone, let’s pause for a moment and wonder, “Are you sure he considers himself a turtle?” 

Join us on the Animal Channel to learn about unknown facts of our animal friends whom we seemingly feel we are familiar with.

Animal Heroes: Selflessly Assisting with Pure Hearts

I’m sure you have heard numerous stories of how people have demonstrated great courage and compassion in saving thee lives of others. We animals can also feel the pain and needs of those around us, be it animal or human, and will try and help in any way possible. Here are some tales of brave animals in our world! Sally the tabby cat in Melbourne, Australia, and her human companion Craig Jeeves, narrowly escaped a house fire. “She jumped on my head and sort of like was screaming at me and woke me up; otherwise, I wouldn’t have got up,” Craig said. Most of his house was lost to the blaze, and the fire department said it was lucky Craig got out in time. Animals help and save others out of our inherent good nature and ask for no reward. Even though we look a bit different than you, we cherish and respect life just like humans.

The Wonderful Earth Inhabitants, Part 1 of 2

One of the reasons October 2nd was specifically selected as “World Farm Animals Day” is that it coincides with the birthday of one of the modern era’s greatest practitioners of nonviolence, Mahatma Gandhi - the “Father of India.” Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,” and, “I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.” As we take this opportunity to contemplate the meaning of World Farm Animals Day, we call on humanity to be aware that all beings should live as equals and be treated with respect.
