Every animal deserves to be loved.

Being the superior specie, it is our job to take care of our little furry friends. Imagine spending more than half of your life in a shelter without getting proper love and attention from someone. All animals need a forever home. A home is the most important thing and it can drastically change an animal. When you have a roof, a warm bed, and some food in your bowl, life takes a 180-degree turn.

From roaming around hunting food in the streets and being abused by humans and animals altogether, the protection of a forever home is the most amazing thing ever. When you adopt a pet, you are not only changing the life of the animal, you are altering your own lifestyle as well. You make a new best friend and family member when you adopt a furry friend. If you want to see the impact of adoption on animals, scroll down below to see some before and after photos:

He’s also had ear mites, fungal infections, stud tail, & recurrent ear and eye infections one after the other. One year and lots of of treatments later and he’s perfectly healthy!”

10. “Toby and Quinton were rescued together and adopted as a bonded pair. Toby has ehlers danlos syndrome and Quinton was toothless. They became brave and happy . Quinton passed away recently, I’m so glad we had him for the time we did and he passed knowing we would keep his best friend safe”

Do you see how much just a little bit of love can affect a pet? Look at how miserable they looked on the streets and in shelters. But now that they have a forever home, they are genuinely happy and feel like the Kings and Queens of the world! These are the only glow up stories that I’m interested in. Scroll down below for the rest:

22. A happy ending after all.

Here is video of me walking out a dog I found malnourished in the woods…When I took her to the vet I found that both of her rear femurs were badly broken and beginning to set about an inch shorter than they should be. I adopted her and after lots of stretching and exercise here Willow is today 🙂 from r/BeforeNAfterAdoption
