Perfect Pair: Boy With Cleft Lip Adopts Pup With Cleft Lip

We're not crying -- you're crying! 

This is beyond heartwarming! Imagine growing up, feeling/looking different than others, and the moment you go to an adoption center to find your new best friend - they look like you. 

That's exactly what happened when sweet 2-year-old Bentley meet his new puppy. Bentley had already had surgeries for the cleft lip and it isn't even noticeable today. Yet, he came across a puppy that reminded him of himself, and they instantly fell in love with each other. 

The Jackson County Animal Shelter, Michigan, shared this beautiful moment between Bentley and his new puppy on their Facebook, which went viral and racked up 33k shares. 

We wish this perfect pair all the best and many years of love and joy ahead of them!

Sweet Special Kitten Nudges Her Way Into Reluctant Man's Heart

What an absolute angel of a kitten! 

Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, a rescue group in Charleston, West Virginia, got an 8-month-old kitten brought in who was born without a left eye or nostril. The kitten also had a bobtail and asymmetrical brain. 

Board member of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, Kathy Lucas, told Love Meow, "We immediately fell in love with that sweet face. It was determined that her left eye did not develop and she has no nasal passage or cavity on the left. She sees and breathes on her right."

"As one vet stated, 'she is who she is' and she is a sweet, trusting, petite girl with a lot of personality,"

They named the adorable little lady, Zara. And this is Zara's story (soon to be named Idgie) of how she nudged her way into the heart of a man reluctant to adopt another cat.

Heartbroken Dog Who Lost Entire Litter Adopts Kittens, And Cares For Them

A heartbreaking tale with a happy ending. Sunshine Dog Rescue, a Non-Profit Organization located in Phoenix, Arizona, rescued a beautiful Australian Shepherd Mix named Georgia. 

Georgia was found living at a gas station near the border to Mexico. Georgia was pregnant, but sadly, none of her puppies made it. All her pups were born prematurely. 

Founder of the Sunshine Dog Rescue, Anita Osa, knew Georgia was heartbroken at the loss of losing all her babies. Osa told ABC15, "I've never had a mom dog lose a whole litter before. The best way I could describe it was she was frantic. It was so sad, she was looking for those babies. She tore up the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies." 

Osa quickly went to work and asked for help on Facebook. Osa was looking for any orphaned baby animals that were in need of a lactating mother. Osa ended up with three kittens who just so happened to fit that bill. 

Of course, with any interspecies integration, you have to worry about whether or not each animal would accept the other. Thankfully, Georgia and the kittens instantly bonded. Osa claims the moment Georgia sniffed the kittens, she calmed down significantly.

They do nurse on her. She cleans them and everything but the bond is strong. It's really something to see, she protects those kittens just as if they were her babies," Osa added. 

While we are heartbroken for the loss of Georgia's litter, we are grateful she found a family of her own with others who needed her. 

Check out the adorable videos of Georgia and her baby kittens below.

Cats Who Forced Their Way Into A Forever Home

Sometimes, it's not you who adopts the cat, it's the cat who adopts you. 

Here are a handful of stories in which cats decided to take matters into their own paws and get that forever home by force. And most of the time, it totally works. I mean, who can resist a cat that has decided you are their human? That's pretty freakin' special if you ask us. 

Cheers to all those who were adopted by stray animals!

Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to our favorite weekly feel-good stories -- adopted faces of the week! And this week we are featuring a bunch of newly adopted one-eyed beauties! Thanks to those who saw these precious babies and gave them a chance.

Actor Dennis Quaid Adopts Cat Named Dennis Quaid

Honestly, could there be a more perfect adoption story out there? 

Lynchburg Humane Society had a black cat in need of a forever home. This cat was named Dennis Quaid. Well, the news of Dennis Quaid reached none other than the actor Dennis Quaid himself. "It was really off the wall, but I just couldn't resist. I had to," Dennis Quaid told WSLS 10 News, "I'm out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world."

Danielle Ulmer, Adoption Center Manager at Lynchburg Humane Society couldn't believe when she heard the news, "I was like there is no way this is real, like, someone is pranking us."

Jimmy Jellinek, co-host of The Pet Show, convinced Danielle Ulmer that this was real and soon enough, a Zoom call was made where Dennis Quaid got to meet Dennis Quaid. And vice versa. 

"Maybe they should start naming animals in shelters after different celebrities and see who bites," Quaid joked. However, it's not a bad idea! And it looks like from the adoptable faces below, they're already taking Quaid up on his advice!

Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (19 Images + 1 Vid)

Happy Friday, everyone! We love Fridays for many reasons:

1. It's the start of the weekend

2. Our original user's lolcats are featured

3. The newly adopted faces of the week, which makes our hearts melt. 

We adore seeing animals find a forever loving home. And we thank all those who adopted, in the past, present, or will do so in the future. We also want to send a special shout out to those who adopt animals who have been in the shelter for far too long, those who adopted animals who are missing limbs, or characteristics that one would consider makes them difficult to adopt. And of course, thank you to those who adopt senior animals and give them a second (and hopefully final) loving home.

Power Of Love: Before And After Adoption (21 Pics + 1 Vid)

Love is so incredibly powerful. It can transform anyone and anything, with the proper TLC (tender, love, and care). 

Whenever we come across a before and after images of a neglected animal and the transformation to healthy and happy -- we can't help but get emotional. Do be warned though, some of the 'before' images are quite graphic. We're just so happy someone got them in time to help be their true and best selves. 

We love all adopted faces, and we wish all those lovely animals a loving and happy forever home.

Stray Dog Gets A Home, Job, And Badge From Hyundai Showroom In Brazil

What a good boy! 

We love it when we heart a story of a stray animal getting a furrever home -- and job

Meet Tuscan Prime, the new "pawfessional consultant" of a Hyundai showroom in Brazil! The staff noticed him earlier this year, a stray that would constantly hang around the showroom. The staff didn't ignore the stray, instead, they gave him love and attention. And after one particularly rainy night, the manager, Emerson Mariano, decided to adopt the dog and named him Tuscan Prime. 

After his adoption, Mariano took him to the vet for all the necessary vaccinations. 

Initially, the showroom took him in just to give him refuge, but it turns out that he's one heck of a salesman! With Tuscan's charm and interaction with the customers, the dealership saw no choice but to give credit where it was due. Thus, earning Tuscan Prime a promotion and his very own ID badge! Tuscan had officially become the showroom's mascot! 

In an interview with Top Motors Brazil, Mariano mentions that "that many customers returned to the store even after having purchased a car just to say hi to the dog and give him gifts."

And according to Mariano, Tuscan is even expected to star in a national advertisement campaign for Hyundai! 

Way to go, Tuscan! You can now follow Tuscan Prime on Instagram
