We need our pets, and they need us. Each and every one of these animals deserve a shot at a caring family, a cozy bed, and a stomach stuffed with wholesome food. Sadly, there are millions of abandoned animals in shelters waiting for their new heroes to open their hearts and their doors so they can save them from suffering.
It’s quite wonderful to witness how much a little love can alter a neglected or abandoned animal’s course in life. So, in honor of these adorable misfits and the rescuers who welcomed them into their everlasting homes, the animal-loving staff at Bored Panda wants to celebrate them. We continue our monthly feature, which features adorably sweet images of recently acquired pets that will make you melt.
