Dillon was born blind and lived on the streets for four months before being rescued by the Animal Rescue League of Boston. Even though Dillon has never had sight, it doesn’t stop him from living a normal and happy feline life.

Dillon’s human wrote via Kitty Army: “He never fully developed eyes — his veterinarians were never certain if it was because of genetics or because of ocular herpes. His veterinarians were fairly sure, however, that he never had sight. To prevent ulceration and infection of what little, non-functional eyes he had developed, his veterinarians removed the organs and sewed him up. Because he was only a kitten, it allowed for his other senses to develop so fully and richly that today he carries on a very normal feline life — and yet he is also so extraordinary.

For us, it was love at first sight. We knew from the moment we saw him that we would adopt him, and he has completely adopted us as well. He follows us around like a little duckling, weaving in and out of our legs, ‘staring’ up at us with a look of complete contentment. He is honestly such a happy cat.

He is constantly surprising us. Things we thought he would never do, like get up on furniture and run around the house, he has completely mastered. He hardly ever bumps into anything, as he has mapped out every inch of our place and knows it by heart. Even when we move furniture around, it doesn’t phase him. He’s used to it in seconds — his memory must be so sharp.
Most people who adopt will tell you that yes, they may have saved their animal, but in turn their animal has saved them as well.”

Meet Moe Howard! He has quite a unique look. He wears a cute bowl cut and even has a mullet in the back, too according to Animal Rescue League of Boston. Moe came to the shelter on Thursday night after he was rescued by a woman.

“A good samaritan brought him to us after finding him as a stray. He has such unique markings that we decided to name him ‘Moe Howard’ bc we thought there was a cute lil resemblance. He loves to be held & snuggled! He’s super, super affectionate! We absolutely adore him!”

A tiny 5 week old kitten is now in the good hands of Animal Rescue League of Boston thanks to two good Samaritans who rescued the little grey kitten from a garbage can.

“Our rescue techs just picked up this 5wk-old kitten that was found inside two plastic bags in a garbage can in Roxbury. Some good samaritans, a 5yo girl & her mom, heard her cries & alerted the League. The little girl has decided to name the cat ‘PAISLEY.’ A law enforcement officer was present at the time of the pickup & has obtained evidence from the scene. She’s now resting comfortably at the ARL,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.

They gave Paisley a stuffed sheep to comfort her after what she had gone through. “She’s been enjoying some food, a warm place to rest, & lots of TLC. She’ll be evaluated by our vet staff & sent to foster until she’s ready to find a forever home.”

Four tiny kittens were spotted by a good samaritan outside Northeastern University in Boston. “Our awesome Senior Rescue Tech, Bill Tanguay, was able to rescue them & bring them back to the ARL (Animal Rescue League of Boston) where they are now safe and warm. They’re in the process of being evaluated by our shelter med team and will be on their way to foster today!” said Animal Rescue League of Boston on their Facebook page.

“Our eyes are peeled for the mother, but we couldn’t leave the babies out in the cold while we waited to see if there was one. These babies are not available now because they are too young, so they will be in foster for the next 3-4weeks,” the shelter added.

“On June 2nd, 2011, about 24 hours into the tornado recovery efforts, an unknown tree worker brought little Toto to the Brimfield Fire Station, where Jonathan was on duty with Brimfield Ambulance. After a brief conversation with the tree worker, it was obvious that Toto was found alone in an area of storm damaged trees in Brimfield,” written on Toto’s website.

Toto only weighed six ounces at the time, and needed immediate veterminary care. Workers from the Animal Rescue League of Boston took him in and nursed him back to health.

2 months after Toto’s rescue, “Jonathan’s wife, Amy, surprised him and adopted Toto from the ARL. It was a joyous reunion. Toto had returned to Brimfield, where he belonged.”

Toto rescued by a tree worker after a violent tornado, was nursed back to health:
