Most of us know how much animals can enrich our lives, but did you know animals can also save lives? From our pets to farm animals to those living in the zoo or in the wild, many animals have risked their lives to save one of ours. Dogs such as Roselle led her blind master down 77 floors as the World Trade Center crashed around them on 9/11. Canine Velvet kept her owners warm and from frostbite when they were lost on a mountain during a surprise snowstorm. Feline Winnie woke her family repeatedly until they got up when their house had a gas leak and they were minutes away from death. To learn more about hero cows, gorillas and dolphins, read the true rescue stories of Animal Heroes.
