I don’t have a dog of my own right now, but (pre-pandemic), I would go down to Baton Rouge to watch my sister’s two dogs, Bea and Lily, whenever she went out of town for a while.

And let me tell you, these two rescue pups are two of my favorite pooches on the entire planet! I don’t know too much about their circumstances before my sister took them in, but I know that they’re now happy, well-fed, and absolute professionals at relaxing and snoozing on the couch.

My point: adopt, don’t shop! And enjoy these before and after photos of pets who are now in loving homes!

1. Oh, Mr. Biscuits!

He’s now living his best life! Yay!

Two months of love changed Mr. Biscuits

We’re glad you gave him a safe home.

3. She’s not sick anymore.

And she’s turned into quite a beauty!

Before and after in three months. When I found her, I spent almost three days in a row without sleeping. She was very ill. Now she is OK. And her name is Eve.

4. A big difference here.

What a cutie!

Few months can make a difference. She was caged almost the whole time before rescued

5. Poor thing lost a leg.

But she’s feeling great now!

Hazel was a stray who was rescued after being caught in a steel trap for an estimated 5 days. She lost her leg but found her home with me! This is 8 weeks after coming home.

6. Live out your twilight years in style.

Just take a seat on my lap and it’ll all be okay.

Moo was found on the street with a heart murmur, barely any teeth, and FIV! He’s now living out his twilight years as a lap cat.

7. Loving this guy!

The best choice they ever made.

My girlfriend and I adopted Buck in August of 2019, he’s changed our lives more than we did his and has been the best choice we’ve made. Love this guy to death!

8. Now he’s healthy and active.

Looks like he used to be in rough shape.

This Poor 10 y/o Little Man took a Year to go from brutalized to healthy and active

9. Look at that big smile!

He’s come a long way, thanks to you.

I was told y’all would love this SURVIVORS BIG BEAUTIFUL SMILE! In order to really appreciate it you need to see what he looked like the day he was rescued. Best smile EVER❤️💚💙

10. A love connection.

This is what happens when you rescue an animal!

Meet Sachi, we found each other 2 years ago, and it’s been love ever since

11. Not abandoned anymore.

He looks very happy to be in your home.

Sammy was abandoned and brought to a kill shelter in Texas before being rescued and brought to Canada to rescue me 🙂

And now he’s a happy boy!

Meet Butters. The runt of his litter found on the side of the road starved, abandoned, and completely deaf. My friends rescued him and gave him the TLC he needed to be a happy boy! 1 year before and after
