A 4-year-old mutt that no one wanted was named "Lazarus" — after a man Jesus rose from the dead — when it was found alive and drinking water hours after it had been administered a lethal dose of chemicals meant to kill it.
According to an Associated Press report, the dog was dropped off at the Ozark City Animal Shelter in Ozark, Alabama, on Aug. 19 by its owner who could no longer take care of the dog which had been hit by a car and was cut and bloody.
The shelter tried to find a new owner for the dog but no one stepped up give it a new home so the decision was made to put it down. On Sept. 10 the dog was given a lethal dose of chemicals at the shelter and left for dead in a pen. more >>

It's almost impossible to even see the frogs because they blend in when the video starts…
Nature photographer Joe Myers from St. Augustine, Florida, believes he found the ultimate entertainment system for his leopard frogs. He places his phone on the ground and plays an iPhone video showing worms crawling around.
Within seconds a bunch of frogs hopped over to him and begin to wonder if it was real or not. Some even went to attack the phone in hopes of it being real food. They are known for eating worms as well as snakes and small birds. more >>
A World Wildlife Fund report released Tuesday claims that the planet's wildlife population, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, has declined by 52 percent since 1970. The executive director of A Rocha USA said that the findings are alarming, but not surprising, and called on Christians to witness to the world by starting to care for the planet.
"Indeed, the report simply confirms what we read in Hosea — the birds of the air, the beasts of the field and the fish of the sea are dying — and in Romans — the creation groans. Why? Because of humankind's sin. We have not treated God's Earth as we should. We've treated it as rapacious squatters rather than the Christ-like stewards God created us to be," Tom Rowley, executive director of A Rocha USA, told The Christian Post in an email on Wednesday.
"Imagine what a difference we could make if we Christians began to care. Not just care about. That's easy and not worth much. But actually and actively care for both people and planet. Which is really what A Rocha is all about. Consider also, what a witness it would be to an unbelieving world if Christ followers started caring for the planet." more >>
