    Hurricane Irma devastated parts of Florida.

    One of the things people may not think about is how the damage and displacement affected foster children. Foster kids are loved and cared for, but for many their homes are already temporary. To then face the fear of losing that safe place is a terrible thing for a child to deal with.

    In one part of Florida, more than 70 foster kids were displaced from a shelter that had no food or electricity. That’s when someone decided to step in and help.

    Matt Bell and his family opened their home, which is full of video games and fun activities, to the 70 children and their caretakers.

    While the storm raged outside, they were all safe inside the Bell residence.

    Now they’re offering food and entertainment to the kids while they find a way to fix up the shelter.

    Learn more about the situation and the generosity that kept these kids safe and happy in the video below.

  • A Spacecraft Was Just Sent Crashing Into Saturn…And Scientists Did It On Purpose

    Retirement is meant to serve as a relaxing period of time in your later life where you can just enjoy life and not have to worry about working the usual 9 to 5.

    However, while most retirements begin by going on vacation or purchasing an exotic sports car, for the NASA spacecraft known as Cassini, this intergalactic piece of metal ended its 20 years of hard work by plunging straight into the side of Saturn.

    The deliberate death plunge was the final act of the spacecraft’s mission to observe Saturn and its surrounding moons. Just moments before colliding with the sixth planet from the sun, Cassini was able to transmit its last signal and collection of data to Earth, giving NASA its first real insight into the atmosphere of Saturn.

    The orbiter’s journey began over 20 years ago.

    Team members from 17 countries came together to help design and build the Cassini orbiter, although the spacecraft’s assembly took place here in the United States under the management of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    The orbiter was named after Italian-French astronomer Giovanni Domenico Cassini, who discovered the ring divisions of Saturn, as well as four of its moons.

    Over the course of its research and data collection, Cassini was tasked with determining the dimensional striations and behaviors of Saturn’s rings and gathering information about the planet’s moons.

    The Cassini orbiter was accompanied on its intergalactic journey by Huygen, a probe NASA and the European Space Agency used to explore Saturn’s largest moon, Titan.

    Cassini-Huygen was first launched into space on October 15,1997, where it spent the first seven years of its mission doing strategized fly-bys over Jupiter, Earth, and Venus. It even tested out Einstein’s theory of relativity in the process.

    In 2004, NASA and Cassini began heavily focusing on Saturn and its moons. During the use of Cassini, NASA was able to discover and identify seven new moons orbiting Saturn.

    The data gathered by this prolonged mission has proven to be invaluable to scientists.

    In nearly two decades of space travel, Cassini has seen its fair share of events and helped make multiple discoveries. Keep watching below to learn more about Cassini’s impact on the space program before it was purposely sent hurtling into the side of Saturn.

  • She Found A Coyote Embedded In Her Car, And You Won’t Believe What It Did Next

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_071_690x252-1505407730

    We’ve seen quite a few stories about coyotes lately, and they’ve taught me more about just how interesting these critters can be.

    They’re found all over the United States, and while they can run into problems with the human population, they usually keep to themselves if possible. They’re a huge part of the food chain in North America, and I’ve grown to think they’re pretty cute, too.

    One unfortunate side effect of animals interacting with humans is that they sometimes meet with the front end of our cars. When Georgie Knox hit a coyote she thought it was done for, but then she got a huge surprise.

    Knox was flagged down by a construction worker at an intersection, who told her the coyote was not dead as she thought. It was embedded in her car and very much alive.

    Not only was it alive, it was barely hurt. Animal Control came out to rescue the poor guy from his predicament.

    The video is SUPER blurry, but it shows the coyote being released back into the wild, more or less unscathed. Amazing!

  • ‘She Was Cold As Ice.’ Man Describes Heartbreaking Condition Of Two Abandoned Dogs

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_068_340x252-1505404071

    Dog fighting is a serious problem in the United States.

    In 2007, it was estimated that more than 250,000 dogs were involved in dog fighting rings where they were forced to hurt each other for humans’ entertainment and monetary gain. What’s more, people being involved in dog fighting has been linked to domestic violence and other violence against human beings.

    There are many police officers and animal rescues doing their best to put an end to this practice, and lawmakers have been cracking down. Every once in a while, however, we’re reminded of just how horrific it can be.

    In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two dogs were found in a park, near death. Warning: the images of the pups are incredibly graphic and upsetting.

    Some dog food had been poured out on the ground, but they were too injured and emaciated to move. Russell Harper, the chief humane officer with Justice Rescue, described one as “cold as ice.”

    The dogs, now named Gracie and Layla, are fighting for their lives in the ICU, where vets have determined what happened to them.

    They were involved in dog fighting, and in addition to those injuries, they were clearly beaten regularly. They were abused and neglected in every way.

    Learn more about these survivors and the ongoing police search for the people responsible in the video below.

    It’s hard to imagine what it’s like to have never been outside or experienced the sun on your face.

    Even if you’re the biggest couch potato, you’ve got to leave the house to go places like the grocery store or the post office. But what if you had never been outside in your entire life?

    That’s what sometimes happens to animals who have been abused and kept confined in crates. For a family of pigs that had never seen the sun, their newfound freedom is incredible.

    At first, almost everyone is a little hesitant to poke their heads out of the barn.

    But once they realize they have room to run, momma leads the way.

    And then the piglets let loose. Look at them run!

    Watch them really let loose and hear more about their story in the video below.

    For so many of us, our pets are some of the most important parts of our lives.

    We spend so much time with them, and they enrich our lives in ways we couldn’t have anticipated.

    So often when people die, they are surrounded by the friends and family who love them. What can be missing from this equation are the furry family members and the chance to say one final goodbye. A terminally ill woman made a final request to see her best friend, however, and hospital staff and friends made it happen.

    The 58-year-old just wanted to see her beloved horse, Dana, one more time before she passed away.

    Friends brought the horse to her side, and hospital staff wheeled her outside, where they all helped her reach up to Dana’s muzzle one last time.

  • We’ve Met This Mom Before, And She Just Brought Someone Incredible Into The World

    media.galaxant.com_000_502_894_340x252-1505226166

    There are some stories we cover that just stick with us.

    One of those is the story of Carrie DeKlyen, who found out earlier this year that she had a deadly form of brain cancer. With five kids at home, this was a devastating diagnosis, but it became even more difficult when Carrie and her husband Nick found out she was pregnant with their sixth child. She chose to forego treatment for her brain cancer in order to let her child live. Now, that precious little girl has been born.

    At 21 weeks pregnant, Carrie was in a vegetative state and on life support, with doctors hoping she could hold on until the baby reached 28 weeks.

    At just 24 and a half weeks, however, doctors decided it was time to deliver the baby girl, who was named Life Lynn DeKlyen in honor of her mother.

    Family members say that little Life “is doing as well as can be expected” after the early delivery and they have high hopes for her future.

    We’re all wishing health and happiness for little Life, whose mom made the ultimate sacrifice to make sure she could be here.
