2. “Just got my first doggo at the age of 57 – already smitten.”

3. “This is Vienna; I brought her home from the shelter about a week ago. She’s between 10-12 years old and was surrendered by a previous owner. The shelter told me she kept getting passed up because of her age, and I just couldn’t leave her there. I already love her so much it hurts.”

4. “My gf and I adopted this sweet boy today. He immediately climbed on me and gave me face rubs.”

5. “Three newborns were found on Friday in an empty dog food bag. Who needs a baby when you can raise 3 puppies? My life currently revolves around snuggles, sleep, milk, and an insane amount of poop!”

6. “We adopted Mango 3 weeks ago. This is how she sleeps on her dad.”

7. “First night home after being adopted.”

8. “Adoption saves lives! Look at his face!”

9. “Went for a walk and this guy was just sitting there. Gave him some food and he followed me home.”

10. “This sweet lady is Poppy. She’s 12 years old and we have adopted her as her previous owner passed. She’s settled really quickly.”

11. “After loosing my buddy of 16 years a month ago, we found these lil guys in the street.”

12. “After being bounced for the first 9 months of his life Griffin is home.”

13. “I found this cat after the fire. A rocket hit a house near me (I live in Ukraine), and this cat must have been there because his fur is burnt and he has problems with his paw. I am now looking for his owners. Vet clinics do not work (do not write me about them)I take care of him, now he looks better.”

14. “Does my stray kitty look happy with his new home?”

15. “I made the greatest decision, I adopted a terminal dog! I can’t imagine a better way to honor my old dogs. Welcome to your new life Cream Puff! Prepare for a pampered rest of your life!”
