Interfere and help, or pass by and forget? Sometimes it can be a tough decision to make, but luckily there are people who just can’t stand aside and watch when it comes to saving an animal’s life. These heroes stop several lanes of traffic to save a lost kitten, they rescue abandoned pets who are expecting babies, and they even help little turtles safely cross the road.

Here at Bright Side we want to say “Thank you” to all those wonderful people who save animals, and here are 17 good souls who knew exactly what to do when they found little creatures who needed help.
