When you're gone through the loss of a beloved pet, just the thought of giving your heart to another animal seems wrong. Even though the love of a pet can bring immense joy, sometimes it's just too soon to invite another pet into the space so recently occupied by your four-legged friend.
While this feeling is the norm for most grieving pet owners, it's important to remember that joy often comes by giving. One of the best ways to overcome your pain and bring joy to yourself and others is volunteering at an animal shelter. After all, no one understands the value of an animal's life like those who are mourning the loss of another animal's life.

The old proverb – “a dog is a man’s best friend” has been an enduring proof of a dog’s loyalty and commitment to their masters. This certainly has been proven time and again especially with recent news on dog owners being rescued or saved by their beloved canines.
One of these touching stories as reported by The New Daily involved Manfred Classen, an 85-year-old dog owner of an English Staffordshire Terrier named “Kiaria.” Kiaria led the ground search and rescue operations to find his owner. Mr. Classen has been reported missing Friday afternoon but had been lost for at least three days when he went for a walk on Wednesday. Kiaria found his owner’s son and then subsequently led the rescuers in the bush land to locate his master, who was found conscious and had suffered from minor facial injuries on Sunday afternoon. With the help of Kiaria, Mr. Classen was successfully rescued and treated at the Westmead Hospital.
There are more inspiring rescue stories like this reported on a global scale – dogs rescuing their elderly owners or being equally protective of human babies.
