  Families are born out of love, not birth

A black macaque monkey named Niv lives in an Israeli zoo in the city of Ramat Gan. Niv couldn’t find a companion among its own species and started taking care of a chicken from a neighboring cage. Niv coddles the bird that always runs to him when it’s feeling scared and is seeking shelter. Sometimes, the bird even stays overnight.
A tigress in a Thai zoo that once was nurtured by a pig, became a mother to several piglets after she had lost her own babies that were born premature.
The Australian center, Edgar’s Mission, rescues animals that have suffered from harsh abuse by humans or that have inborn illnesses. Ruby the dog has lived there since 2009. Her first owner bought her to guard his sheep but soon figured out that the dog couldn’t perform this task and asked his friend to shoot the dog. At the last moment, the friend took Ruby to Edgar’s Mission. Ruby has helped many orphaned animals adjust and live a normal life. She became a mother to piglets, calves, a pony, etc. Ruby performs the job of a true veterinary nurse at the center.
Closer to home (Black Forest): A neighbor’s black cat had kittens and she found a baby opossum on their deck that must have fallen off of its mom. The mama cat took it in as one of her kittens but doesn’t understand why this funny-looking “kitten” constantly hangs onto her. Photo by Sheryl Lambert
DoDo — a 2-year-old chimpanzee from Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo in Bangkok became friends with a tiger cub and started to take care of it. The monkey became a real stand-in parent for the little tiger and was even feeding milk from a bottle to Aorn, completely unaware that this little creature will soon grow into a huge predator.
After 6-month-old elephant cub Themba was orphaned and left by her herd, the workers of Shamwari Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa decided to save her life. At first, Albert the sheep was a little aggressive toward this stranger, but later his heart melted and he became the baby elephant’s friend and mentor.
