There are millions of animals waiting to be adopted, whether they roam the streets or are placed in shelters. From time to time, people make a decision that will change their lives forever. They adopt because they are trying to change an animal’s life and they come out of it with a new, furry best friend.

Now I’ve Seen Everything believes adopting a pet is a gift, not only for the animals, but also for us, and maybe the next pics will inspire you to add one to your family.
