COMPASSION AT ITS PUREST ~ SMILE AND OPEN YOUR HEART
15 Incredible Photos
Dogs are called man's best friend for a reason. Everyone should be as generous, loving, and loyal.
Lily and Madison
Lily, a completely blind Great Dane, was living a lonely and sad life until she met Madison. Madison is her seeing-eye partner, always staying close to her side and watching out for her at all times.
Bella and Bubbles
Size doesn't matter when it comes to being best friends. Bubbles the elephant, who lives at Myrtle Beach Safari, was getting a new pool when the contractor who was building it decided to abandon Bella as a puppy. Bubbles took her in and the two have been inseparable ever since.
This puppy doesn't let the fact that he has no front legs slow him down at all. His owner says he still loves to play and chase after balls. He doesn't even realize he's different.
This dog and her baby
After this chimpanzee's mother died at the zoo, a zookeeper brought the baby home. His dog, who had recently had puppies, took the chimp in and raised it like her own.
Bonedigger and Milo
Bonedigger, a lion who suffered from a disease that left him partially disabled, quickly bonded with a dachshund named Milo. The two have become inseparable, proving that species doesn't matter when it comes to friendship.

Kasi and Mtani
A dog and a cheetah, who were raised together as babies, are still the best of friends living at Busch Gardens. Zoo employees say the two run together, play together, think of each other as siblings, and will very likely be bonded for life.
Lucas and Juno
When 4-year-old Lucas was diagnosed with a terminal disease, his parents considered getting him a service dog. But they were told he wasn't a good candidate for one, and service dogs typically cost around $15,000. So instead Lucas's father adopted Juno just days before she was supposed to be euthanized. The two not only were instant best friends, but Juno also had the ability to detect when the boy was about to have seizures or when his oxygen levels were too low.
Hernan and Himalaya
Hernan is a toddler with Down syndrome who normally shies away from physical contact. But after Himalaya approached and nuzzled against him for a couple minutes, the boy opened up and gave her a heartwarming hug.
