Adopting a shelter pet is a big responsibility, for the animals it is much more than that – it is a change that often saves their lives and completely transforms them. But the new owners’ lives change, too, because saving an innocent soul is equal to having a friend for life.
Owners from many different places are so proud and thankful for the chance to rescue a shelter dog that they started posting before and after photos of the canines prior to adoption and after some time spent in their new homes. The images speak a thousand words and you could easily see not only the tremendous physical change, but also the huge smiles, the sparks in the eyes and the happiness that overflows from the pictures after adoption. If you considered rescuing a stray but had doubts about it, thee images will prove to you that this is probably one the most rewarding things you could do. The uplifting mood and the positive emotions are guaranteed.
