A dog is drowning. A severely injured kitten. A whale tangled in a net. What would you do if you saw an animal in distress? Chances are, if you have even an ounce of compassion for living creatures, you will do something to help. Some people will call for help, some will do nothing, but others don’t think twice about rushing in to help. Firefighters are prime examples of the type of people who go toward danger instead of away and they will do everything in their power to rescue people and animals from all sorts of life threatening situations, even knowing their lives could be at risk.

In this video, you will watch a compilation of animal rescues (and one man needing help) collected from all over the world. Your faith in humanity will be restored as you witness heartwarming endings to animal rescues that make you cup your hand over your mouth or even tear up.

Even though the world can be a cruel place, we must try to remember that compassion does still exist, that good people are indeed real.
