These animals would return the favor one day. Today, we have 19 animals who were rescued by kind people and found their forever homes. Scroll down!

Save an animal and he will save you. Animals are packed with love, just try one and we are sure you will fall in love. Animals do not trust any human that easily. They are scared at first but with time, they would start getting more and more comfortable with you. They would know that you are their hooman and they would love you like no one else.
