20+ Rescue Animals That Prove Love Heals Every Wound

It’s heartbreaking to see what some animals have to go through while living on the streets. While some are lucky enough to be taken care of by locals in the area, others have to be rescued and nurtured back into being happy, and most importantly, healthy.

We at Bright Side have a strong admiration for animals who can pull through and want to share 23 examples of their strength with you.

2. “The day we got her at the shelter vs Now.”
