Finding Love

Okay, we’re all suckers for sweet animal stories with cute pictures. Here is your awww moment for the day. As you will see, Noah is a one-legged pigeon with a heart the size of the ocean. He lives on the Wild Rose Rescue Ranch and is clearly the ambassador of compassion.

Noah the pigeon and the bunnies

Browsing elsewhere on the website I found this wisdom – “Love is found where love is given.” I think the people who run this ranch must find love every day. Certainly Noah the pigeon does!

He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you will find refuge. –Psalm 91:4

  1. This is so incredibly cute! Animals can be so "human"... Your quote "Love is found where loveis given" is very inspiring. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Oh what a warm and heart touching photo that picture and it needs not one word! Very cool, thanks for sharing it!

  3. I love the premise of your blog... I look forward to following you!

  4. Awww, this is so adorable. I think that animals are so accepting because in some situations they don't know that they are so different, hence no prejudices. I love the photos, they're so touching.

  5. Beliza--I like that quote, too. The woman who runs the ranch said it just came to her!

    Karen--Yep, it speaks for itself.

    myjoyproject--Love your title. Welcome and thanks for following. I will pop over to your blog right now.

    darlin--So touching indeed, and that is the real key to compassion.

  6. All together now - Awwww! ;-)

    Thanks for sharing this article with us Galen, my heart warms when I see that animals can show us humans a thing or two about being human :-)

  7. This beautiful. It goes to show that if we spread our wings with love, it will come. Some of the best teachers in the world are little children and animals. Love just comes natural for them.
    Thank for sharing this with me.

  8. Oh it made me tear up...thank you for sharing this

    I am going to be a bit overt here - I did a post about my friend Lianna efforts to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes. Last night a woman said she would give a $1 for every person who was counted on Patricias Wisdom's site for reading the post - up to $500 (offer is thru Sunday the 17th) Could I encourage your readers to come over and see the post and pass it on? Thank you

  9. Looks like empathy comes in all shapes and sizes. How wonderful. Thank you Galen :-)

  10. The lamb lies down with the lion.

  11. Stuart--And to think they do it without a (human) vocabulary for compassion!

    Debbie--Spreading our wings with love. Great image.

    Patricia--Good luck with your fundraising.

    Jean--Yes, it does!

    Bob--Your comment reminded me of a video I saw of cheetahs in Africa running down an antelope fawn and then playing with it gently and letting it go. Not sure that the fawn had a good time (!), but it was a sweet, tender video.

  12. People who run those ranches have HUGE hearts! Thankfully there are people who can take care of the little creatures. And those that take care of the big creatures. They're just a little harder to find sometimes.
