22 Pictures Of Pets That Show Their Incredible Transformation Before And After Adoption
Pets are very special to us. Not only do they provide companionship, they also give us their unconditional love, regardless of how they are being treated. They are intensely loyal and once you forge a bond with them, it's one that can last forever.
Unfortunately, not all our loving dogs, cats and other pets receive love in return. A lot of them are being abused or abandoned. It is very heartbreaking to know that some defenseless little creatures out there are being constantly hurt and neglected.
Then there are those animals who do not even have a home. They try their hardest to survive on the streets where they end up contracting terrible diseases. And because there is no one around to intervene, a majority of them end up dying as a result.
Rescuing the animals
The good news here is that there are people fighting daily for these pets in trouble. Animal shelters and regular individuals alike are doing what they can to find and rescue pets that need help.
In a lot of cases, these animals are usually found in a terrible state and inches from death. However, when rescuers step in, everything changes.
We soon learn that all these pets need is not just food and water, but love and attention to thrive. Once they begin to get this, the change is drastic and an absolute joy to see. Thanks to social media, we can now get some glimpses of these mindblowing transformations.
Check out the pictures below of some of the best ones and see how much difference it makes when a dog or cat finds a happy home.

Our amazing doggy is 2! When we adopted her she was 10 months old - pacing, barking, worried, terrified, neglected, unlikely to be rehabilitatable. She's such a love. She just needed time, as we all do. Tonight she eats steak. ❤️ #dogstagram #garbo #calgarydogs #mydogrescuedme #mastiff #brindle #floppyears #happybirthday #spoileddog #calgaryhumanesociety #rescuedog #canecorso #lifeisbetterwithadog #doglife #dogsarebetterthanhumans #dogger #love #bestfriends #rescuebeforeandafter #beforeandafter #dogrescue

Before (top) and after (bottom). Kira was rescued from a hoarder who neglected over 50 animals. She has a loving family now! from BeforeNAfterAdoption
Nobody wanted to adopt Felix because of his bad arm. He was run over by a car as a kitten and his arm healed incorrectly, causing him to limp when he walks. That didn't stop us from adopting him! He's such a great guy who loves to cuddle! Not to mention all the funny positions he lays in! from BeforeNAfterAdoption
Neglected and underweight when we brought him home. Now a fluffy and happy Christmas boye! from BeforeNAfterAdoption
From pneumonia and constant vet trips, to healthy and full of zoomies. Going on three months with this nugget. from BeforeNAfterAdoption

Have a heart.
Not only do these photos show how much damage animals experience and how big of a change happens after they receive love, it is also a reminder to you of the importance of adopting a pet that needs a home.
So, if you can, take a trip to your nearest shelter and make a doggie or kitty's dream come true. Knowing you made that kind of different in a creature's life is very beautiful indeed.
