Someone did not lie when they said “A pet is man’s best friend”. No, that’s not only for the dogs, but it can also be said for any pet, we think. Knowing that there is someone who waits for you to get home from work, gives you company throughout the day, releases your stress and puts you in a happy mood, or makes you want to be around them and take care of them gives you a certain kind of serotonin that cannot be described in just some amount of words.
Since for all of us its been one crazy ride from the year 2021 to 2022, it’ll only be fair to rush start this year with a load of wholesome adopted stories of animals and pets that will not only bring us to our knees (in a very affectionate way) but also will make our hearts swoon enough to adopt a pet of our own one day. Moreover, with the growing difficulties in the everyday lifestyle of an individual, be it pressure from work, school or friends, or something entirely trivial that puts you off, these adoption stories will be an escape that’ll not only relax your mind but will also promise to make you cry happy tears. Without further ado, here are some of the collections that we put together for you to adore.
Hope you love it just as much as we did!

4. What is better than two kittens? THREE kittens!
“Originally was going to adopt 2 of these guys. Turns out three times the charm. We got all the siblings together! They’re super close and we didn’t want to leave the sister out. Any advice would help as first-time cat owners :)”

30. She is just as lucky!
“I adopted this 7 y.o lady just over a month ago. Each day she seems cosier & more playful than the last. She was in a shelter since May 2019 which made me so sad to hear when I met her. She’s incredibly sweet & I am very lucky to have her.”

Now that was the most innocent yet uplifting experience of my life. Perhaps, these stories and pictures encouraged you guys enough to adopt a pet of your own immediately because it sure did motivate us to do so! All we know is how these animals got a new home, a new family that will take care of them and moreover, a better space to live in where they can spread their positive vibes and more.
Even as pets, they are living creatures that require constant care, love and affection. Hence, it is only fair that instead of being abandoned in a shelter, they too get their needs met. Now every time you see them, it’ll not only bring a huge smile to your face but also give you the realization of how much of a good deed you have done as a person.
