SEATTLE -- A woman in South Seattle got the shock of her life when she opened up her power bill this month and saw that she owes more than $2,000.

Linda White says she's used to seeing $20 power bills, so she thought the latest bill was a mistake. But she soon realized her $2,113.56 electric bill was not a misprint.

"That's a lot of money, and a lot of money I don't have," she said.

It turns out the meter on her rented home had been broken as far back as June of 2010, according to Seattle City Light. It was only recently that Seattle City Light realized the meter was stuck. Even the meter reader didn't catch the fact that White was being undercharged.

The two dogs in the photo below were dropped off at a central Florida animal shelter within a day of each other. They became instant best friends.

"They are still connected at the hip. They walk side by side," says their new mom, Ronda Chewning. "They even eat side by side."

Chewning says she'd never been involved with the animal rescue community before seeing the photo of the boys -- the tan one was called Darby at the time; the black-and-white dog hadn't been named yet -- on the Second Chance Rescue Facebook page.

It was the end of August, and the 3-year-old dogs' situation was described as "urgent." They were scheduled to be euthanized in early September if no one were to take th

Looks like George the goldfish will get to float around its pond and munch on fish flakes for much longer.

Over the past year, the 10-year-old goldfish in Melbourne, Victoria, developed a brain tumor, affecting its ability to eat, swim and even interact with the other fish in his pond, according to KTRK.

"[The] fish was having trouble eating, getting around, getting bullied by the other fish," Dr. Tristan Rich, a veterinarian at Lort Smith Animal Hospital, said according to the outlet.

Dr. Rich offered the fish's owners, Lyn Orton and Pip Joyce, the option of putting the animal to sleep or paying for a life-saving operation to remove the tumor in its head, according to the Herald Su

An Oregon City family is calling their pit bull a hero after it saved an 8-year-old boy from a swarm of bees.

A group of children were playing near a creek and one of them unleashed a swarm of bees by stepping on a rotten log. Most of the kids got away but Jesse Shaver was being repeatedly stung and had trouble making it up the hill.

Fortunately, his dog Hades dragged the boy up the slope to the grass and, once there, let him mount her. “She let me crawl on her back and took me to my mom,” Jesse told Fox 12.

“I’m so glad we adopted her,” said Jesse’s mom, who was “astonished to see the dog dragging her son to safety.”

he Oregon Public House began as a dream to bring the individual charitable experience into the social space of a community. They wanted to transform the solitary act of quietly donating to a good cause and give it some bravado — and some beer.

It took three years to renovate the building at 700 NE Dekum Street in Portland. Today the “family-friendly” pub, with its delicious-looking menu of sandwiches, pastas and salads, is open every day at noon. It serves as a “community center for change” with 100% of all profits going to a variety of charities on the menu — just pick your favorite.

Celebrity ice bucket challenge videos have filled news feeds across America for weeks. Fortunately, at least a few of those willing public figures aren't just talking the good deed talk -- they're opening their thick wallets to combat ALS, too.

Actors Leonardo DiCaprio and David Spade have donated more to the ALS Association than any other celebrities, according to the organization.
