10+ Rescue Stories Beautifully Sum Up Why It’s Better To Adopt Than To Shop Animals

Why buy pets from those trying to make a profit when you can rescue them for free?

While all pets deserve love, it is always better to rescue pets and offer them a second chance at life. If each one of us adopts one pet, just imagine how many unloved and neglected animals are we giving a loving home to.

Countless animals are brought to animal shelters every year. These animals are unloved and unwanted. Some are even abandoned by their owners with nowhere to go. Imagine how we can change their lives by giving them a loving home.

Below we have compiled some rescue/adoption stories from Reddit to show you just how relieved and loved these animals feel when we bring them home and give them the love and attention they deserve.
