    One is a lab/pit bull mix, the other is a thatchy, scruffy looking longhaired chihuahua mix. Together, they’re the best friends you’ll ever meet. The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department call the pair Joanie and Chachi. Someone noticed the two dogs wandering in a Savannah, Ga. neighborhood in mid-July and called Animal Control. The dogs did tend to attract attention — the larger dog was carrying around the smaller dog in her mouth. It didn’t take long for Animal Control to notice that Chachi, the chihuahua, had seriously hurt his left eye. .... Joanie and Chachi have found a new forever...

    The Wings of Rescue 3rd Annual Holiday Airlift whisked 500 shelter pooches aboard 14 flights to 11 cities up to the Pacific Northwest, saving each from near-certain euthanasia. “We’re loading to Helena, (Montana) now,” barked Woodland Hills real-estate developer Yehuda Netanel, a native of Israel and cofounder of Wings of Rescue, which since 2009 has flown more than 5,000 Southern California shelter dogs to safety. “We either do it or the dogs die, so the choice is clear.” Unable to find “fur-ever” families in Southern California, these last-chance animals were being airlifted to Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, where they...

Her family's story of heartache touched their hearts, especially one woman, who knows all too well what's it like to depend on the kindness of strangers. Elva Gomez thought Monday was another scheduled therapy session for her second and third degree burns. Instead as she is escorted into a room full of presents she is told this, "Elva you deserve everything you're getting sweet heart." Elva can't hold back her tears and sobs at the sight of Santa's surprise. She...

    It might be hard to find a pair of children's flip-flops for sale in Conroe or Spring this weekend. Most of them are on the way to Iraq. A Montgomery County couple who launched a shoe-collection drive for Iraqi children delivered 2,010 pairs of flip-flops to Fort Hood on Friday for distribution in theBaghdad area beginning next week. Gary and Barbara Cluck, who live in the April Sound community on Lake Conroe, were struck by a U.S. soldier's casual observation in a newsletter from Iraq that many kids go shoeless in the hot desert sand. With help from neighbors and...
