13 Animals Who Didn’t Forget to Thank Their Rescuers4.2kShares

There is a certain kind of person who sympathizes with someone else’s pain and treats it like their own. They can’t walk past someone who really needs help, and they are usually rewarded with sincere hugs and a grateful look.

Oversauce has collected 13 stories of caring people who saved animals. These stories illustrate the fact that animals (no matter if they are wild or house pets) understand what happens and are grateful for our kindness. At the end of the article, there is a very moving bonus proving once again that we can learn about love and care from children.

In 2009, Brantley Harrison and her family found a squirrel that had been wounded by an owl. They cared for the squirrel and treated Bella (the name they gave to the animal) for 5 months. After that, it was time to say goodbye, and they let Bella go back to her home in nature. However, the grateful squirrel didn’t forget their kindness and has been visiting the family every day for 8 years.

2. Superdog is very grateful to her vet!

3. This swan is hugging its rescuer.

These birds don’t have a good reputation and are famous for being aggressive and hostile. But Richard Weeze wasn’t too scared to help a bird that got stuck in a fence. The wounded swan hugged the man and put its neck around his. We think this was the bird’s way of saying, “Thank you.”
