Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (22 Images)

Welcome to Friday, animal lovers! And Friday can only mean one thing... it's time for our most heartwarming and wholesome segment that's full of positivity, happiness, and forever homes  - the newly adopted faces of the week!

Every single Friday, we look through the internet to find the most wholesome adoption posts on the internet. We do it because nothing makes us happier than seeing an animal in need go from being helpless and alone to finding a forever home where they will be loved. 

Of course, as always, we would like to say thank you to all of you who adopted animals this week and at any other point. A special thanks goes to the ones of you who adopted senior pets, sick pets, or pets with special needs - those guys need more care than most, but they still deserve a forever home just as good as everyone else. We're truly grateful, and we hope to hear many more stories such as yours next week as well.

How It Started Vs How It's Going: Heartwarming Animal Glow Ups

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these adorable photographs have a lot to say! When it comes to 'before' and 'after' animal photos, sometimes the story is what truly makes the images more powerful and wonderful. Sometimes the story comes across and sometimes it doesn't. To see an animal start out small and shy and end up big and confident is truly a magical thing. 

All of these before and after photos show growth. Some are hilarious scenarios. Some are inspiring. And some are just heartwarming! And who out of us cannot get a kick out of these beautiful darlings!? Surely, no one.

Animals Who Shamelessly Wrecked Stuff

To what extent is a cat or dog capable of feeling guilt? The answer is case by case. In the case of some pets like Prancer, the most irredeemable dog, you're likely to get as much remorse as you would a rock. Some dogs probably think they're doing you a favor by eating the door so you can be together. Maybe dogs who get stuck in things are a little more emotionally invested in you if they need your help, but they're also pretty good at making it seem like they don't really care.

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly.

Get ready, because you have never seen a pet pigeon so cute. This little guy - a 1.5-year-old rescued seraphim pigeon named Cricket - has something that he absolutely loves to do, and that is... go to sleep. Yes, we didn't think we'd ever relate to much to a pigeon either. 

But, it's true, Cricket loves bedtime so much, he sometimes goes and puts himself to bed. And his owner managed to catch one of those times on camera, and oh my goodness, this gorgeous pigeon is so excited about bedtime, it makes us both want to rescue a pigeon for ourselves and also go to sleep early today lol.

People Who Had To Choose Between Partners and Pets

It's a not-unheard-of occurrence in relationships: "either the dog goes or I go." People who set this kind of ultimatum often have a very uninformed view on how much people like their pets. If the cat has been around for 10 years and you've been around for 3 months, don't expect an outcome in your favor. That said, pets aren't always stoic beacons of morality. For example here's Prancer, the irredeemable dog and these pets who shamelessly wrecked stuff.

Pet Store Employee Stops Karen From Torturing Starfish

Having a saltwater tank isn't as easy as throwing some salt and water together in a jug like it's Kool-Aid and calling it a day. Karen wasn't having all this "responsible pet owner" talk, so this employee stepped in to show her exactly what she'd need to take care of a starfish. Of course, Karen didn't take kindly to this employee who didn't want her to slowly torture a starfish to death. Will the Karen customersof the world ever learn their lesson? Doubtful.
