There’s not much out there that’s as wholesome as photos of rescue pets.

All of these animals were given a new lease on life when generous humans decided to take them into their homes and you can’t bet that they’re all living their best lives with people who spoil them rotten.

And that’s how it should be with our pets!

Enjoy these great photos that might just melt your heart. Let’s take a look!

1. That cat is feeling right at home!

Welcome to the family!

I adopted a cat, this was 1 hour after we got home

And cute ones, too!

Against my better judgment, we have adopted a pair of one-eyed chaos kittens.

9. All she needed was a lot of love.

Look at her now!

On the left is Emmy at the shelter, way to skinny and unhealthy, And on the right is Emmy a year after we adopted her. Once she got all healthy all her beautiful floof grew in! My sweet girl❤️

11. Given a new lease on life.

What a beauty!

4 years ago I adopted my very first cat from the shelter. She was malnourished, terrified, and had her claws taken away from her. Her owner of 5 years surrendered her and she lost all motivation to live. Both of our lives changed for the best that day and I haven’t stopped loving her since.
