18 Pictures Of Pets Who Found Happiness After Being Adopted

Do you think you are a true animal lover? Think again.

Millions of animals are taken into shelter homes in order to keep them protected from the adversities of living in the open. But no shelter home feels like home due to the limited space and facilities they have. Majorly cats and dogs are among the animals that are taken in by these sheltering organizations, mostly.


Crampy living spaces, limited food, and other factors contributing to uncomfortable living in the shelters put these animals under a lot of stress, especially dogs. They often feel shy and depressed when you first meet them, that’s because most of these abandoned doggos have lost their faith in the goodness of life as no one would adopt them or would want to take them home. Why? Because we all want our choice of “breeds” which is why these dogs are being neglected. They have every trait of being a good doggo and filling your life with happiness but they are being ignored only because they are strays. Also, it’s the power of love that heals these pooches. Bringing them home instantly lightens them up, the warmth, compassion, and empathy fade away the pain of being alone. Gradually, these dogs unleash their beautiful personalities and you fall in love with them all over again!

Here we have some gorgeous doggos who had become despair living at the shelter centers but after being adopted they turned out to be the ultimate definition of hope and happiness. The before and after adoption pictures showcases what being home feels like, it’s pure happiness!

Every adoption story here is so heart-touching but we’re so glad these dogs found loving homes and are growing out to be contented. They deserved a life full of ease and they are finally where they were supposed to be. On the other hand, if you are one of our frequent readers, you must have seen that we have always encouraged our readers to opt for adopting a pet rather than shopping for one. We do understand that a majority of us would want to get our choice of breeds whether it’s a cat or a dog but the fact is, there are a lot of animals that are being neglected and killed due to this behaviour of ours.

A lot of strays are euthanized in order to make room for new ones and that’s just one of the saddest realities. They don’t find forever homes even though they have all the traits that any “breed” has. However, easier said than done but one should always have the intention of doing good and should always try to do that. People who adopt these pets and give them a new loving home are true animal lovers and there are absolutely no doubts about that.

Anyway, keep scrolling to see some of the greatest transitions of our lovely doggos from being in sadness to have found the greatest of all joys, the joy of being home!
