Today, many social ads imply that it’s better to adopt a pet from a shelter or take it from the street rather than buy it from a breeder or pet store. Luckily, many people are following this advice. For example, the amount of stray and shelter animals has decreased over recent years in the US. No matter what kind of animal you adopt — an old pug-dog or a kitten shivering from the cold — you’ll completely change their lives. Moreover, we’ll have gained one more superhero in the world!

We at Bright Side admire those who have already given a safe haven to homeless animals and we are eager to share the most exciting stories with you.
