When you decide to adopt a pet, you are giving that animal a brand new lease on life.

The only thing cats, dogs, and other furry creatures really want is to be loved and to feel safe. And we take these pets into our homes because they give us so much in return!

Here are some beautiful pet adoption stories that we think you’re going to love. Also, you might want to have some tissues handy…
