As we already said (here, here and here) everyone deserves a second chance. Everyone deserves to be loved, especially abandoned animals! They require so little and give you so much – unconditional love for as long as they live!
The look in their eyes after they have been rescued and offered a home shows enough of how grateful they are, and trust me, there are few things in life that can be as rewarding as this.
And this reward can feel double during these lockdown days, because their company will make the days feel like just quick, happy moments passing by.
Check the wholesome photos of rescued/adopted pets below and hopefully, it will inspire some of you to do the same. And if you have already done something like this, share the moments with us in the comments below, and let’s make this situation easier.
1. We Adopted Kane About A Month Ago. We Don’t Know Much About His Background Or His Age, But He Is Around 10-12. He Is Nearly Deaf And Blind. He Is Very Sweet And Just Likes To Sleep All Day And Likes Going Outside. He Is A Good Boy
As you may know, recently human rights protests have spread across the US and around the world. Many pet owners also want to do their part and express their opinions, but while some animals are better used to staying at home for longer periods of time, others — most notably, dogs — can’t. So their humans take them to the protests with them. While dogs are really good companions to demand justice with, there are a few very important things people should keep in mind when doing so.
2. Adopted Pit Can’t Stop Hugging His New Owner
“All dogs are individuals with their own personalities and dispositions,”Kelly DiCicco, Manager, Adoptions Promotions at the ASPCA Adoption Center said. “When bringing your dog anywhere there will be different sights and sounds, as well as crowds, it’s important to consider their comfort level with new experiences in the past.”
“Large gatherings or events can be confusing or upsetting to pets who may also become frightened or disoriented by loud noises,” DiCicco warned. “You may want to leave your pet at home where you can ensure they feel safe and relaxed. If your dog will be outside with you, be sure to keep them leashed, give them plenty of fresh water and don’t let them linger on hot asphalt for too long. Being so close to the ground, your dog’s body can heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn.”
3.2 Months After Adopting An Older Cat I Still Can’t Figure Out Why Anyone Wouldn’t Want This Big Bag Of Love
But no matter what animal you’re adopting, it is unquestionably the right thing to do. About 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, roughly 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Luckily, according to ASPCA estimates, the number of dogs and cats entering U.S. shelters annually has declined from approximately 7.2 million in 2011.
