Each year, approximately more than one million dogs and cats are euthanized because animal shelters are too full and too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet. Therefore, anyone who chooses to adopt stray animals or pets at shelters instead of buying pets at shops deserves to be called our superheroes. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When we adopt pets, not only do we save these pets by giving them forever homes, but we also help shelters have more space for other animals who might desperately need it. And of course, poor cats and dogs who got help from kind-hearted people will always be grateful to their saviors.
We at Paws Planet can’t stop admiring people who are willing to help animals in need. That is the reason why we decided to share with you 20 heartwarming stories of poor animals who met their heroes and their guardian angels at just the right moment. Through this post, we hope that every lonely animal finally finds a loving forever home. Scroll down to enjoy!
