21 Photos That Show How Priceless It Is to Give Homeless Animals a New Life

If you’ve ever thought about getting a pet from a shelter but were too scared, this compilation is definitely for you. These photos clearly illustrate that anyone can make our 4-legged friends happy by simply giving them a forever home.

We at Bright Side would like to share with you 21 photos of fluffy friends who found a new home and super-caring people at the same time.

21. Amazing what love and care can do.

20. “Adopted my cat 6 months ago from a local rescue and I don’t think she had ever seen carpet before. She laid like this for about 30 minutes without moving.”

19. “I work in remote areas as a geologist. I was leaving my camp this morning and heard meowing. I turned around and this little fella followed me. I think I’ve been chosen.”

18. “Brought this baby girl home from the shelter today and she hasn’t left my side since. Meet Clover.”

17. “She just showed up so we kept her around. Today it became official. She’s pretty happy about it.”

16. A little love goes a long way.

15. “I found this cat and couldn’t find its mother so I guess I own a cat now.”

14. “Went to the local shelter just to look...and left with this cutie. Meet Aya!”

13. “My dog Wynter went from living on the streets to relaxing in my backyard.”

12. “Just moved into a new house and found a roommate.”

11. “Was told he was very shy yesterday when I adopted him...”

10. “Rescued this guy from a shelter. He was there for 8 months and no one wanted him. I believe he was waiting for my wife and I.”

9. “We brought home Huxley and it didn’t take long for him to make himself at home!”

8. “So glad we adopted these twins. They’re inseparable.”

7. “Just 6 weeks of love and care and he is completely transformed! Found him half-dead by the street on a rainy day.”

6. “3 years ago, we found this little guy under the porch and here’s what he looks like now!”

5. “Just picked her up and she fell asleep like this. On our way to her new home now!”

4. “The day I brought little Owen home vs 1 year later — he grew into quite the majestic floof.”

3. “I adopted Butter today and he is very excited to be in his new home.”

2. “This little guy was literally running for his life in the street during school pick-up. I saved him and cloaked him in the security of my beard.”

1. “They told me she was aggressive and a ’problem cat’ and would take a long time to warm up. She revealed herself to be a cuddle bug as soon as I got her home and cleaned up.”

Have you ever rescued a pet from the street or a shelter? Do you have stories and photos showing their amazing transformations? We’d love to see them down below!
