    My idea for this av contest was actually inspired by my entry for the last contest, where I entered a picture and GIF of one of the Skydog Sanctuary horses, and the theme is saved. So the idea is anybody or anything that was saved in some way, from death or injury, anything else that you need to be saved from. Just explain how and why it was saved.
    Usual avatar contest rules apply, with a max size of 200x200 and 1MB. Let's set a limit of three entries per person.
    My first entry:

    The crew of Apollo 13
    (L to R): Fred Haise, Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert
    Saved by the ingenuity and determination of their ground support crew (as well as their own!) after their spacecraft suffered a catastrophic accident. All three survived and were safely returned to Earth.

    Volunteer sea rescuers saving African refugees crossing the Mediterranean, something these volunteers have been antagonized, smeared and even criminalized for by European governments.

    Probably? It's only been four days. I have some more Ideas, but haven't got to them yet. RL has been really demanding lately.

    I usually leave these up for about a week, so I'll go probably be setting up the poll tomorrow, if I remember.

    Wall Street* had to be saved repeatedly in the past two decades through government bailouts

    *Yes, it was actually individual entities like Goldman Sachs or AIG, but you get why I simplified it to Wall Street.
