Doing work for the greater good is a proven way to make you feel happier and more fulfilled. And if you love animals, then what is a better way to reap those benefits than by rescuing an animal? It’s important to take good care of a pet, but pets can also take care of their owners, benefits. Because pets require a lot of attention, especially dogs, who need to go outside every few hours, owners have a reason to get off the couch and be active.

However, when you rescue animals take to their new homes and owners immediately, others struggle at first and have a range of behavior problems, from wetting carpets to anxiously hiding beneath beds. Or they may not be fully socialized with other pets or kids. Adopters need to be prepared for this tricky phase, which can take days, weeks or, in some cases, months or years,

After all, to show the power of an affectionate home, proud owners from throughout the world are sharing photos of their family dogs before and after they were rescued. Here are some heartwarming dog adoption images. You can realize the difference pet adoption makes to a shelter inmate only if you see one, so scroll down and meet the blessed ones!
