Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (22 Images)

Welcome to Friday, animal lovers! And Friday can only mean one thing... it's time for our most heartwarming and wholesome segment that's full of positivity, happiness, and forever homes  - the newly adopted faces of the week!

Every single Friday, we look through the internet to find the most wholesome adoption posts on the internet. We do it because nothing makes us happier than seeing an animal in need go from being helpless and alone to finding a forever home where they will be loved. 

Of course, as always, we would like to say thank you to all of you who adopted animals this week and at any other point. A special thanks goes to the ones of you who adopted senior pets, sick pets, or pets with special needs - those guys need more care than most, but they still deserve a forever home just as good as everyone else. We're truly grateful, and we hope to hear many more stories such as yours next week as well.

Some animals out there go through so many things in their lives that when they finally reach a shelter, they are deemed unadoptable. The cat in this video is not the first story of this kind that we've heard. Not a month ago, an adorable chihuahua was deemed unadoptable and went viral online. That doesn't mean that we should give up on these animals though. Every animal deserves a forever home, and every adoption is something to celebrate

We are so, so happy that this woman decided to take this cat into her home despite the cat being "unadoptable". Some cats just need more time and space to get used to their environment, but with enough care and enough love, even the most feral cat will learn to trust its human in time. 

Get the tissues out, friends, because this story is too heartwarming.

Evolution Of A Rescued Trashcan Kitty (Viral Thread)

There's nothing more heartwarming than the story of a kitten rescue. Reading about a person who takes time out of their day to help a helpless kitten in need is something that makes us inexplicably happy. It inspires us to want to help animals as well. Binforlife on imguris a person who does exactly that - helping little animals in need. And one of Binforlife's latest rescues is a tiny trashcan kitty who he wasn't even sure he wanted. 

Now, the tiny girl is no longer tiny and no longer helpless, sitting on her rescuer's shoulder and enjoying the new life she was given. It's important that, when you hear a kitten crying out for help, or any other animal, for you to do your best to help them - whether it's taking them in yourselves or calling someone else for help.

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Animal rescue stories are always heartwarming, but you might not expect a fish rescue story to be. Despite people getting fish as pets so commonly, most people don't know how hard taking care of a pet fish can be. And in this story, unfortunately, the family who had the now not-so-ugly 'Ugly Ivan' not only didn't take care of him well but neglected and abused him. 

Most people probably wouldn't work so hard to rescue a fish, but NotaScientologiston imgurdid. Surprisingly, people responded with more love than any of us expected, with Ugly Ivan going viral over and over again. People wanted to know more about his story, and people wanted him to survive, and luckily, people are getting both of these things. 

viral imgur threads about the rescue of an ugly fish thumbnail includes a picture of an ugly fish 'Seven days ago I rescued a massive fish from some horrific owners, they neglected him, didn't even give him the smallest amount of care, and only did filter and tank maintenance when they felt like it. The water was so toxic that it was eating away the caulk sealing his tank together. I gave him a name, and started treatment as best i could. Ugly Ivan was home NotaScientologist'

When people say that opposites attract, they are talking specifically about this deaf puppy and this 2-year-old girl, we are certain of it. Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming. For some reason, as the video says, this "girl who can't stop talking , and the guy who can't hear anything" became unlikely best friends right away.

Happily, this love was strong enough for the mom to see it and know that it was meant to be. So, what started as dog sitting for two weeks turned into this awwdorable puppy finding its forever home with an amazing, loving family. And that's all we could ever want for it.
