Before-And-After Photos Of Dogs After Life-Changing Adoption (30 Pics)

A human is blessed with the most amazing 3-pound organ also known as the powerhouse of the human body— the brain. But it hurts so bad to know that many of us don’t make the right use of it. We are blessed with emotions yet we fail to understand the pain felt by fellow human beings and other species. Sometimes, we become so unexpressive and cold-blooded that we use others not only humans but also animals for our benefit and cause them to suffer. A lot of big cosmetic and skincare brands use animals to test their products, not only that, some medicines are tested on them. After these animals reach a point where they can no longer be used as a test object, they are abandoned on streets or dumped into garbage cans to die.


This is not where animal cruelty stops. There is a wide range of heinous crimes committed that include animal cruelty in the name of deriving benefits for mankind. All kinds of animals are used for all sorts of things. Life dogs are used for fights, breeding, cosmetic, medical and lab testings. Not to mention, in some regions of the world, some inhumane, wild people and tribes eat dog meat. As sick as it sounds, sometimes people have very cruel behaviour to their pets in general. Many times animal shelters have found dogs on streets or in dumpsters abandoned by their owners in near-to-death situations. Not only that, there have also been instances where dogs were found tied and starved at homes after they’ve been sold. A subreddit called r/BeforeNAfterAdoption with over 286K members shared heart-warming before-and-after pictures of adopted dogs that will definitely melt your heart. Here are 30 photos that we found to be the most touching. Scroll Down and check them out.

This is very heart-wrenching and disturbing to hear about animals being treated like that. It is our moral obligation to take care of each other whether they are our fellow humans or animals living in our whereabouts. As a responsible citizen and as a member of the society, we are obliged to provide help to all those who can’t stand up for themselves. After all, someone has to be the one to take the first step towards change, why can’t that be us? Remember, God doesn’t change the situation of people who do nothing to change themselves. So, take a step and take in an abandoned pet. Provide them with a loving home and shower them with endless love and then see how their silly grin and goofy actions warm-up your home.

Everything is gonna be okay!
