So many animals need a home.
I am sure we have all seen dogs and cats roaming around on the street and they usually look quite malnourished. Not only that but they have to scrounge for food in dumpsters and such or deal with other problems that come with being homeless. However, so many people still tend to go to unethical breeders or shops to buy their pets than either rescuing these animals that need love or going to their local shelter.
However, today we are going to focus on the people who saw these animals and rather than ignoring them, decided to give these sweet fluffy balls a home. While I always recommend thinking carefully before you make such a decision, sometimes you have no choice. Now, this does not mean everyone should just go and get an animal from the wild as it takes a lot of consideration and you need to be ready to pay extra care to the animals that come from the streets. But for most people, it is all worth it in the end.
So scroll below to take a look at some beautiful transformations of these animals just because of some love and care.
#1 Honestly, these two pictures look like two different dogs.
I named her Possum due to the tail situation, but not sure that applies anymore.
#2 In just a few months, Finn looks like a completely new doggo.
#3 This is Coconut and she looks absolutely majestic if you ask me.
#4 When even the shelter gets the breed wrong because of the small size.
The shelter said he was a chihuahua. It turns out that we’d adopted an American Staffordshire Terrier who was too skinny.
#5 He had many health issues at first but now he is as healthy as he can be.
#6 Just look at how the kitten is looking at the human!
This is my little Dizzy. Someone found him in a field with a few other cats around 6 weeks old and he’s about to turn 4!!
#7 Even the color of the fur is much brighter now.
#8 From a terrified kitty to a cat who owns the whole house.
#9 Just a little bit of love can change everything as apparent in this picture.
Bruce was abandoned and the left photo is how he arrived at my house. The right one is after 6 months.
#10 This change happened in just under two months.
According to recent statistics, there are close to 8 million animals that enter shelters every year. And the population is mostly split into half and half cats and dogs. Most of the time it is because many people give up their animals. And I understand that sometimes you don’t have a choice but if you decided to take in an animal, you should be able to drive to a shelter or find them a new home rather than just abandoning them on the street. There are ofcourse some strays that come into shelters but the numbers are less than half when compared of those who get abandoned by their humans.
#11 I am so happy to see that this doggo is doing well now.
Brought our little bean home in a Chinese takeout box. She had a severe eye infection. She celebrated her first birthday last November!
#12 This is Bella and she has changed a lot in recent years.
From a 4-week-old stray kitten, my husband found in a puddle to my chunky, bathtub dwelling, happy girl.
#13 He went from a very sad-looking face to giving the biggest smile ever.
2 weeks ago, I adopted a boy with the saddest face from a nearby shelter. He’s really come out of his shell in that time, and has already grown attached to me.
#14 How could anyone throw them away?
#15 The excitement is clear by how tall the ears are standing.
#16 The difference between these two pictures is only 9 months.
#17 This is Miss Clementine and she is happy and healthy after the surgery.
#18 This is one of the most majestic dogs I have ever seen.
#19 This little pup found a new friend as well.
This little dog was living at my work (a train yard) for about 4 months. She slept in a cardboard box. Now she lives with my parents and their pups!
