This spring APL!VE is absolutely bouncing with cuteness with the addition of Bunny Cam to our growing collection of adorable animal cams. Brighten your day by watching sweet bunnies munch, jump, and play around in their very own bunny castle.  With Easter just weeks away, this is a cam that you're going to want to share with friends and family.

It's also an excellent opportunity to get to know one of America’s most popular household pets. To help you understand exactly what welcoming a bunny into the family means, we're hosting weekly chats with our partners at the House Rabbit Society, an international non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned rabbits, finding them forever homes, and educating people on the responsibilities of rabbit ownership. Join us on Bunny Cam every Wednesday at 3PM ET for Bunny Chats!

Chimpanzee Hugs Dr. Jane Goodall After Release Back to Forest

A chimpanzee named Wounda was found sick with disease, underweight, very weak and close to death. She was rescued by the teams at Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, home to about 160 chimpanzees, in the Republic of Congo.

Thanks to the expert care of the sanctuary staff, Wounda was given a second chance — and, headed down the road to recovery.

Dr. Jane Goodall joined the team to release Wounda to protected sanctuary lands on Tchindzoulou Island.

Watch this beautiful moment and share in Wounda's joy and gratitude. And, just try not to cry when she hugs the amazing Dr. Goodall:

Animals weather the storm during Colorado floods

Heavy rains and flooding have crippled parts of Colorado, where six people are dead and hundreds have been reported missing, according to various news outlets. In the midst of the devastation, however, uplifting stories involving animals have emerged, as shares.

Responders from the Larimer County Sherriff’s office have evacuated 475 pets, while the National Guard evacuated one man and his 7 pets (4 dogs and 3 cats).

Not only have animals been rescued, some have also rescued others. In Denver, a guide dog saved his seeing-impaired owner after getting knocked over by floodwaters. As the man struggled, the unnamed guide dog jumped into rising water and went after his owner. Both were swept into a drainage curvert, where they were stuck for nearly 20 minutes, before a police officer and a paramedic rescued them, according to the Denver Post. The paramedic credited the dog and said he believed the man held onto the animal to stay afloat.

As rescue efforts continue in Colorado, places from high schools to churches have turned into emergency animal centers, while area humane societies and animal shelters continue to work on reuniting owners with their animals. Click here for more information on locating pets and how you can help.

Heartwarming Video of the Day: Blind Puppy Sees for First Time


A five-month-old rescue puppy who was blind from cataracts can now see after undergoing surgery.

The puppy, Danny, previously would walk cautiously around the home of his foster parents, keeping his head down. After the surgery, which cleared his eyes, he has begun to act like the playful puppy he is. After Danny's story gained media attention, the generous donations that came into the Austin Humane Society will be able to take care of Danny's surgery and future needs as well as the needs of any future dogs who come into the care of the shelter. Learn more about Danny on the shelter's blog.

What a great story all around.
