Good Samaritans rescue dog in labor on side of Pennsylvania road

A Pennsylvania woman and her daughter came to the rescue of a pregnant dog that was delivering a litter of puppies on the side of the road, according to an animal shelter in Lancaster County. >> Read more trending news  Bryan Langlois, the co-founder and medical director of Pet Pantry of Lancaster, said the boxer had already delivered four puppies when the two women found the dogs Thursday around 8 p.m., WPMT reported. The women called the police, and a West Hempfield Township officers took the dogs to Pet Pantry, the television station reported. As the officer was driving to the shelter, the boxer gave birth to a fifth puppy in the back of the squad car, Langlois told WPMT. Once at the shelter, the dog gave birth to four more puppies, the television station reported. One of those was stillborn, and a second puppy did not survive overnight, Langlois said. Langlois told WPMT the total litter of surviving puppies included five males and two females. He said the dogs are doing well. 'Mom is a champ,' Langlois said in a news release. 'She knows just what to do, and that makes our job a whole lot easier here.' The mother dog and her puppies will be sent to a foster home after they clear a medical examination, Langlois told WPMT. The puppies will not be available for adoption for at least two months, Langlois said.

Good Samaritan installs air conditioning unit for needy Arizona couple

Good Samaritan installs air conditioning unit for needy Arizona couple

The temperature in Arizona remains in triple digits during the day, but one resident made sure a couple in need stayed cool. >> Read more trending news  When the air conditioner at the Wittmann home of Randy Sprau and his wife broke down, the couple had to cool off at a nearby fire station, KNXV reported. That's when Darren Anglin stepped in. The Phoenix resident heard about the couple's problem on social media. Anglin, who works for Paladin Mfg/Construction in Wittmann, tracked down a used air-conditioning unit, and, using some donated parts, installed it for the couple, the television station reported. 'I was really surprised he would help us like that,' Sprau told KNXV. The cost? 'A smile and a handshake,' Anglin said. 'You have to help your neighbors,' Anglin told the television station.'You can't leave an elderly couple like that.' For Sprau, who lives on a fixed income with his wife, the gesture was a godsend. 'Everyone we ever talked to kept telling us, 'No, we can't help you,'' Sprau told KNXV. 'And I was beginning to think there was no one out there that cared enough to help us, but he was.

'No one should be buried alone': Hundreds show up for Korean War vet's funeral

'No one should be buried alone': Hundreds show up for Korean War vet's funeral

A Massachusetts funeral home director wanted to make sure a Korean War veteran with no family was given a respectful sendoff. >> Read more trending news  Eileen Robichaud died earlier in September and doesn't have any relatives in New England, Boston 25 News reported. 'I feel very sad when people pass away and there’s no one there for them,' said Aaron Mitzen, the director of the Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home. Mitzen asked the community to show up for Robichaud's service, and the turnout was more than he could have expected. Robichaud died at the age of 84 at the Brockton Veterans Affairs Hospital. An only child, she served in the Korean War right after high school. While she was a longtime resident of Methuen, Robichaud only has distant cousins who live on the other side of the country and otherwise will not have anyone to attend her funeral. 'She was a pioneer in her own right,' says Mitzen. 'She enlisted in the Navy at a time when there were very few women in the military.' While two of her cousins flew in for the funeral, hundreds of people showed up to support Robichaud and her legacy. This isn't the first time Mitzen has shown an act of kindness toward a deceased veteran. In March, Mitzen asked Methuen residents to attend the funeral of a 95-year-old veteran who died without any surviving family. For that service, he was able to gather 150 people, including many local veterans, to come out and pay their respects to Albert Corn. 'We want to make sure that their history and their sacrifice is not forgotten,' said Cathy Connelly, of the Purple Heart Veterans. 'I think the old adage is veterans stick together,' said one veteran. 'Nobody goes alone.' Having served two decades in the Marine Corps., Mitzen says that's how he feels, saying he has a special connection to all veterans, especially those who didn't have families. 'This has become kind of like my little personal mission, that no one should be buried alone,' said Mitzen. 'No one should die alone.' Strangers came from near and far to honor Robichaud.  'I thought it was truly amazing, and we’re blessed to have such a country, a community to come out and honor her,' said Karen Courtemanche, of Methuen. 'I was blown away. I was just speechless, to tell you the truth,' said Maureen Rodarte, Robichaud's cousin. 'People just kept coming and coming. It just says a lot about your community.

23 states sue over Trump plan to ease auto emission standards Led by California, almost two dozen states filed a federal lawsuit on Friday to stop the Trump Administration from revoking a waiver which has allowed California and other states to set tougher auto emission standards than required by the federal government. “California won’t bend to the President’s reckless and politically motivated attacks on our clean car waiver,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom, who has clashed with the President on a variety of policy fronts.  'The Administration insists on attacking the authority of California and other states to tackle air pollution and protect public health,' added California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. But under federal law, California had the right to ask for a waiver to permit tighter emission controls on new cars - and the state had been doing so for nearly 50 years.  A number of others states had joined in accepting those same requirements. The Trump Administration argues there should only be a single national standard for emissions and gas mileage. The change by the feds 'will insure there is one - and only one - set of national fuel economy standards, as Congress mandated and intended,' said Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on Thursday. The lawsuit can be seen here.
