Dogs are often miserable when they’re taken to the shelters – some are stray, some are lost, some are abandoned, some are even rescued from dangerous places. They are hungry, they are injured, and of course, they are upset… until someone finds them. So, if you intend to find yourself a new friend to live with, adopt, don’t shop. Your help will change their life. Let’s take this post as an example.
Recently, there has been a new wave on social networks where people proudly share photos of their dogs before and after adoption. It all started as a TikTok challenge, when a girl named Alexa uploaded a video in which she asked TikTok users to show her what their dog looked like in the shelter versus now. The young girl even led the way by sharing a picture of her own dog.
The movement began immediately, and everyone loves it! Here are 30 touching pictures of these admirable dogs compiled by Bored Panda, and their transformations will melt your heart for sure.
