The world's largest cat rescue, where more than 700 cats roam a 12 acre plot of land in Parlier, Calif.

Since its founding in 1992, the no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center has saved more than 20,000 cats and 6,000 dogs, not to mention the "handful of goats" who also roam the property helping keep the grass in check.

"I've always felt that, if they don't have a home, at least they have a life," said Cat House founder Lynea Lattanzio in an introductory video about the sanctuary. "To me, it's not a life if they're in a cage. They need to be able to run full speed and climb a tree. That's a cat."

Photographer Christina Gandolfo paid the sanctuary a visit in the

NEW YORK - Police launched a massive manhunt Monday for the madman who fatally stabbed a Brooklyn boy and who may also be responsible for the murder of a teenager in the same neighborhood.

Police described the man as a "heavy set" black male, approximately 6 feet tall, between ages 25 and 35, and last seen wearing a gray shirt. He stabbed a 6-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl inside an elevator in their apartment building in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn and fled, police said.

Prince Joshua "PJ" Avitto, 6, was stabbed in the torso and transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The girl was also stabbed in the torso and remains in critical condition, a

People with overdue bills have long complained of harassment from debt collectors, from late-night phone calls to frightening in-person visits. Now it appears the industry has found far more troubling strategy: Filing lawsuits against debtors -- often, consumer advocates say, on the theory that they won't ever show up to court to defend themselves.

The consequences are dire when the debtors don't appear in court. A judge can put a lien on someone's home, garnish wages, even freeze bank accounts -- all without a person ever getting a chance to fight their case. And at times, collectors file suit in error. Consumers interviewed for this story described cases where they were never told they

Thousands of layoff notices have been delivered to teachers nationwide, but one fifth grader has inspired an entire school district to show their appreciation for educators with her unselfish act to try to save her teachers.

She also included a handwritten letter addressed to the Arcadia Unified school board and superintendent, saying, “I really hope this $300 will help save the teachers that a

Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald would never leave a brother behind, which was why he wouldn’t let anyone tell him that he couldn’t adopt the bomb-sniffing dog who saved his life.

While serving in Afghanistan, McDonald sent Layka into a building where she was shot four times point-blank by enemy forces. Though the resilient pup was severely injured, she managed to still subdue the shooter, protecting her handler and the other servicemen involved in the mission, National Geographic reported.

So when McDonald returned home, he was eager to adopt Layka, who had her front leg amputated as a result of her injuries. He faced a tremendous about of push back, as many veterans do in the process. Some

Katra village, India -- Mourners sat on mud floors at a village in India where two teen girls were gang-raped then found hanging from a mango tree. They wailed and talked of fears of more attacks.

The assault on the cousins ages 14 and 16 sparked outrage in the community in Uttar Pradesh state.

Villagers streamed into the homes of the girls' relatives, weeping behind their customary veils. The mother of one of the girls said her daughter wanted to become a doctor to escape grinding poverty.

The attackers, she said, deserved the same fate that befell her daughter.

"Hang them in public," she said.

The girls cannot be identified by relatives or victims under Indian law.
