Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (27 Images + 1 Video)

Happy Friday, fellow animal lovers! We know you've been waiting for this moment, just as much as we do each and every week! But the waiting is officially over and your original weekly segment has arrived once more -- the newly adopted faces of the week! 

Once a week, we search through the web to bring you all the newly adopted faces, and each and every week it's filled with feels! The sight of all these adopted animals just fills our hearts with so much joy.

We would like to take a minute and express our gratitude to all those who have recently adopted, to all those who have adopted in the past, and to those who will be adopting in the future. And, as always, a mega-heartfelt thank you to all those who adopt senior animals or animals in need of some extra love and care. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. 

If you're thinking about getting a pet, please consider adoption. Rescue animals know they're being rescued and they are beyond grateful and show that gratefulness with so much affection.

Shelters Report Not Having Any Animals Left To Adopt

It may be the best thing to come out of 2020! The animal shelters in the Washington area are experiencing a rare and unique occurrence... the amount of dogs available for adoption is increasingly limited! Thanks to the mess of 2020 and everyone pretty much forced to stay at home for a majority of the year, people turned to adoption as a source of comfort and meaning. 

Cindy Sharpley, founder, and director of Last Chance Animal Rescue, a nonprofit animal shelter in Waldorf, had this to say about the rare phenomenon, "We thought people would stop adopting because they would need to conserve their money, but that hasn't happened. It's been just the opposite. They're going like hotcakes. We can hardly keep them in stock."

Another animal shelter, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Arlington said it's expecting to end 2020 by helping around 3,385 pets find their forever home! The year prior, they were about to help about 1,800 find homes. Shelter Animals Count, which runs a database and is able to track all the shelter and rescue activities reported that 26,000 more pet adoptions in 2020 than the year before. This number comes from about 500 rescue organizations across the country.

There has been such a demand for animals, that shelters across the country simply do not have enough animals to keep up with this increasing demand.

Mirah Horowitz, executive director of Lucky Dog, had to make some changes to keep up with the demand, and that meant moving the operation online! Horowitz told Washington Post, "Anyone who felt like, 'I can't adopt an animal because I'm at work all day' is now finding they're at home. People want a pet for companionship and to give kids a sense of responsibility and a playmate."

Here are a few people who adopted during these uncertain times and their new forever soulmates:

Japanese Inn Allows Sleepovers With Cats To Encourage Adoption

This is the greatest idea ever!

If you've always wanted a cat, and just wasn't sure about what living and sleeping with a cat would be like, this one Japanese Inn located in the hot spring town of Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan might be the answer to your questions! My Cat Yugawara, a lovely inn that has a really unique offering... the chance of having a sleepover trial with a potential adoptee! 

In Japan, inns are known as 'ryokans,' and you'll be able to distinguish a ryokan from any common inn, a ryokan has more a minimalist design, futons for sleeping on a mat on the floor, traditionally paper walls, and communal baths (in this case, hot springs as well). What truly sets this inn apart from others is the opportunity to help cats find a forever home. Potential cat owners, who are unsure about living with a cat due to various living conditions, can really have their eyes opened by booking a room with a cuddly and adorable feline. Some rooms at the inn can house up to five people, letting a whole family experience a day in the life of having a cat.

Senior Cat Appreciation Gallery (18 Images)

Senior cats have a warm spot in our hearts. I, personally, have a senior cat of my own of 15 years and I cherish every moment with my handsome old man! 

Our senior pets are a large part of our hearts. Whether you just adopted a senior animal, or have had them since they were young, we have such a strong connection to our older and calmer furbabies. For some of us, our cats have been there with us from a young delicate age and have watched us grow, watched us cry, watched us fall in love, pretty much anything you can think of -- your pet was there for it. 

We love our senior babies and do all we can to let them do how much we love them because truth be told, we don't know how much longer we have with them so it's best to just hug/pet/kiss/cuddle them any chance we get. Here are some senior cats who are still going strong and looking great! 

If you have a senior pet of your own, share an image in the comments below!

Imgur User Adopts Senior Blind Kitty, Shares Heartwarming Story

Well, according to Imgur user, daianaaaa, this beautiful senior kitty adopted her, not the other way around. And sometimes, it is the pets who decide who their human will be, and when you've been chosen, it's the best feeling in the world. To be chosen is an honor. 

Daianaaaa was chosen by Molly. A 20-year-old stray who also happens to be blind. Our hearts feel so warm knowing there are people out there who see older animals in need of some love and providing it for them. 

If you're considering getting a pet, please consider adopting instead of shopping. The animals know you've rescued them, they just do and you can feel their gratefulness for it. 

Thank you, daianaaaa, for giving Molly a loving forever home!
