This is Gluta, whose owner likes to call her the happiest dog in the world. Given her history, we think the name fits as she was rescued from the street and beat cancer to get to where she is today.
Gluta’s owner found her as a stray while living in a dormitory in Thailand. Dogs weren’t allowed, but he snuck her in anyway and fed her because of her friendliness and tidiness. When she fell ill in her battle with uteral cancer, both she and her owner stuck through it and she beat the illness.
Now, she’s a beautiful, clever and, most importantly, well-loved dog who loves to pose for adorable and silly photos. Her happiness is infectious and, given what she’s lived through, heartfelt and real!

Unwanted by his mother and left alone to die, Jewel went 18 hours in the freezing cold without a drop of milk before he was saved by the power of love. He was found by an animal sanctuary in rural Bulgaria called “4-Legged Friends”, and taken in to be saved even though it didn’t look like he would make it.
A dog called Mirka immediately adopted Jewel as her own. Within 3 hours of getting love from Mirka, Jewel miraculously stood up and completely recovered. This animal sanctuary has rescued and given a home to many other animals, most of whom were severely abused and neglected. All of them became the best of friends and are teaching the visiting children how to be compassionate, caring and tolerant of those who are different from them.
The sanctuary depends entirely on donations and currently their financial situation is very grim. The extreme cold and wet weather in Bulgaria is making it very hard to keep the animals dry and fed. Vera and her husband Viktor are working unselfishly to keep the sanctuary and to keep the animals alive, however they can not do this without help.

Jewel and Mirka staying warm in front of the heater
Even after helping Jewel to recover, Mirka is still very protective and doesn’t leave his side
Jewel quickly started making other friends too. Winning the cat’s affections was tricky, though
But eventually even the cat couldn’t resist his love and charm
There are also some other unusual friendships between previously-abused animals
Such as Mirko the donkey and his piggy friend!
Or the chickens and the pig, keeping one another warm
They teach visiting children compassion, tolerance and love
Lily was rescued mere hours before being slaughtered. Now she brings joy to so many children
Jewel, Petko, Coco and Mirko all living in harmony and enjoying the sun
Borko the donkey offers his services as a taxi to the chickens of the sanctuary
Vera and Viktor work very hard to ensure that the animals are protected, safe and warm
Medication and supplies are expensive though and the sanctuary survives solely on donations
Due to the extreme weather in Bulgaria, the sanctuary is more desperate than ever for donations
