20 People Who Accidentally Met Their Future Pets and Couldn’t Part With Them

Today, many social ads imply that it’s better to adopt a pet from a shelter or take it from the street rather than buy it from a breeder or pet store. Luckily, many people are following this advice. For example, the amount of stray and shelter animals has decreased over recent years in the US. No matter what kind of animal you adopt — an old pug-dog or a kitten shivering from the cold — you’ll completely change their lives. Moreover, we’ll have gained one more superhero in the world!

We at Bright Side admire those who have already given a safe haven to homeless animals and we are eager to share the most exciting stories with you.

“I found a kitten on my construction site today, zero work got done after that.”

“Found this little chunk on the side of the road today. I fell in love with her immediately.”

When your work brings you new friends:

“Last night I had to work traffic for a bad wreck. I heard a small meow. I shined my flashlight over and saw 2 reflective eyes looking at me. I meowed back. Surprisingly, this teeny tiny little kitten crawled up my leg and sat on my shoulder.”

“Saved this girl from being sent to a kill shelter. Say hi to Nala!”

“When our cat realized she got adopted by us”

“Rescued an ’aggressive’ chinchilla from a home with 3 dogs yesterday. The little guy has been my best friend since we met!”

“This tiny kitten just showed up in our yard last month. Guess I love cats now.”

“We rescued him a month ago from the humane society. He has finally started to bring his toys to us for playtime!”

“She was found crying in the Costco parking lot today and was hiding under a car but came right up when I leaned over. She’s so friendly, I’m going to keep her.”

“A before and after pic of my rescue puppy!”

“My neighbor fostered a pregnant’s a mama protecting her kittens that were born last night.”

“She showed up at our lot. I picked her up and she immediately settled here and wouldn’t move. I guess that was her way of saying she chose me. I’m now a cat person apparently. I named her Scarlet.”

“She came up to the machine shop I work at 4 years ago. I started feeding her and now she’s the shop mascot.”

“Saved her mother from the wild and 63 days later this beauty popped out!”

“I saw this old pug and brought him home with me. He’s 10 years old and came from an abusive home. Meet Tyson the pug.”

“We picked him up from a staircase. He’s still not used to the fact that he won’t die starving, so he always tries to steal some food even if he’s full.”

“Found this little girl in the woods, meowing in the rain.”

“I’ve always been inherently a dog person until this baby needed a home 3 weeks ago and nobody would take him. He changed my mind. Meet Max!”

“This little guy showed up meowing at my back door yesterday morning at 6:30. I opened the door and he just waltzed right in. Looks and acts just like my old kitty Garfield I had when I was a kid!”

“One year ago when I rescued her and now, she’s showing gratitude.”

Have you ever adopted a stray animal from the streets or a shelter? We’d be glad to see them in the comments!
