Who’s got Snoop Dogg as a personal fan, exclusively sleeps in sinks and has more followers than you? Manny the French Bulldog, of course. This smiley babe started life as the unwanted runt of a litter, he’s now raised over $150,000 for charity.

Last week, Link the Bernese mountain dog, who also works as a therapy dog, went with his human Cheryl Wassus to the Motor City Furry Con. Link’s human is a volunteer for the non-profit Pets for Vets, which this “furry” convention was sponsoring, so she thought it would be fun to check it out. They did have fun, but they had no idea that “furry” isn’t about pets.

Unlike her dumpster-diving ancestors, Pumpkin the Raccoon exudes class. Her tiny little fingers sift through porcelain-plated berries instead of trash and she sleeps on fine linens. The little rascal lives the good life in The Bahama’s with her loving family.

BooBoo the cat’s story started in 2013 when she was found by Ashley Aleman. Only a few months old, BooBoo was a stray that was lucky to be found by Ashley and her sister. Their parents had said they couldn’t get a cat and they already had a pit bull, so the sisters hid BooBoo for a week.

A year ago, Pigcasso was a piglet born in a factory farm in South Africa. If she wasn’t saved by her human Joanne, she would be bacon by now. Instead, she’s grown into a true renaissance hog, painting colorful works of art inspired by her beautiful coastal home in Cape Town.

In Asia, eating dogs and cats is legal, but many people there are changing their views on this controversial issue. Taiwan is now the first Asian country to make it an official law that dogs and cats can’t be slaughtered and sold for humans to eat. This is part of new animal protection laws that have been developing in the country for the last few years.

We can all agree French bulldogs are pretty much peak cute already. But how about frenchies playing soccer? But also playing to support a charity?
