Puppy Scared Of Being Returned To Shelter Again Finds Forever Home (Viral Thread)

When going to shelters and listening to the stories of the animals in there, it's always hard hearing about the ones that have been picked up once then taken back. We understand how much hope followed by devastation these animals feel, and our animal-loving hearts want nothing more than to give these animals the forever home they deserve.

So, when we hear a story about an animal that has been returned to the shelter already finally finding its forever home, for us (and for the animal), the joy is doubled. Thank you to FactWino for sharing the story of his beautiful rescue puppy, and thank you to the internet for making it go viral and bringing it to our attention. We wish them the most amazing, long life together.

I think she associated it with being taken back to the pound." - FactWino'

Dog That Spent Year And A Half Chained Up Gets Rescued (Viral Thread)

Bring the tissues, everyone, because this one is a tearjerker. Meet Baldr. This poor pup has spent the first year and a half of his life chained up before he got rescued. He never even had a name, and it has left him afraid of trusting people. Thankfully though, his life changed when imgur user, poorschmuck, opened up their hearts and took him in. 

Baldr is now the happiest he's ever been. He's found his forever home, and he knows it. In this home, he will get nothing but love, and as poorschmuck said: he's "[n]ever going to see a chain again." And nothing could make us happier.

Nervous Kitty Re-Homed 5 Times Finally Finds Forever Home (Viral Thread)

Pets with behavioral issues are never easy to take care of, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve the most amazing forever home. What happens though, when you find out that the pet's behavioral issues most likely stemmed from fear rather than anything else? You get the story of Cheddar Kevin the cat.

bythezu, on imgur, shared their kitty's story, and it first broke our hear then put it right back together. Because this poor kitty has been re-homed 5 times since he would pee everywhere. Yet, when he got to bythezu home, he didn't have an issue. It seems that the reason is that the poor guy kept being put into busy home which were simply too scary for him

He's happy now though, and will be happy for the rest of his life, and that's all that matters. If you have your own heartwarming pet stories, come share them in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime.

viral thread about a cat who was rehomed 5 times finally finding its forever home thumbnail includes two pictures of a ginger cat 'A rescue kitten who has been re-homed 5 times. We saw his little face on the ad, called... and they basically told us he would pee on everything we owned... We've had him almost 3 weeks now, and would you believe it not a single incident outside the litter box!! He was scared at first of course but he warmed up quick and is seriously the sweetest boy.-bythez'

Badly injured in his eye and scared of humans, this adorable pooch finally got the break that he deserved. It took him days of doing nothing but sleep to get used to his new space, but eventually, he realized that he's safe. 


He has been taken in by people so caring who spent their time nursing him back to health, another dog who helped bring him out of his shell, and eventually, those same people found him the kind of forever home that makes him the happiest in the world. So happy, he runs toward them and non-stop wiggles in their arms. It's a happy-ending story that'll make anyone who sees it happy!

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!

We tend to see a lot more adopted faces around this time of year and would just like to reiterate that adopting an animal is a long commitment that you need to take into consideration and really think about before deciding on adopting. As much as love seeing people adopt animals in need of homes, they deserve homes that can really commit to the animal and give it proper care and love. 

That being said, welcome to 'I Can Has Cheezburger' original weekly segment -- meet the newly adopted faces of the week! We're ecstatic to see so many beautiful faces that found their new forever home this week! It melts our hearts knowing these animals are going to be loved and cared for, for the rest of their lives. 

We would like to thank all those who have recently adopted, those who will be adopting in the future, and those who adopted in the past. And, as always, a mega-shout out to all those who have adopted a senior pet or a pet who requires extra tender love and care. You are our heroes. Thank you all for providing these animals with a loving home.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Bubby, The 3-Legged Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Bubby, the 3-legged cat.

Bubby hasn't had the easiest life. According to a Facebook post by Exploits Valley SPCA Adoptables, the year was 2012 when Bubby first emerged in a stranger's kitchen. By then, he was already full-grown and already missing his arm and half of his tail. Bubby had begun to form a friendship with the man whose house he randomly showed up in. Bubby would come often to play with the man's cat, Seson, and when Seson passed, Bubby still came around to visit. 

The man loved Bubby and wanted to keep him but was unsure if Bubby already belonged to anyone, as Bubby was constantly trying to get outside. He determined that Bubby could not be contained. 

In 2017, the man sadly passed away and Bubbly entered the house once more after his death but never returned. The man's family knew just how much the man cared for Bubby and wished for him to be cared for after his passing, but without Bubby's return, they assumed he had passed on himself. 

From 2017-2019, life had been undoubtedly difficult for Bubby. In the summer of 2019, a man by the name Ray Pinsent, who knew the man and Bubby's close relationship, happened to spot Bubby once more. Ray knew Bubby wouldn't be able to survive long on his own, so he set to catch him. Ray went to the man's house, there were new people living there who were afraid of cats, and he pleaded with them to please open the door should she see Bubby and call him. 

The followed day, Ray's phone rang and he was told the cat was in the kitchen. Ray took Bubby's lifeless body to the shelter and the vet claimed that Bubby began to purr while laying on the exam table. As Bubby was recovering, his picture was posted online for any information and that is when the man's daughter came forward, emotional, and brought Bubby the dishes he used to eat out of when we would come for visits. She told the story of Bubby to a rescue volunteer at the shelter. Bubby was then adopted by that same rescue volunteer Sarah MacLeod

Bubby's new owner, fell in love with his sad human eyes and couldn't part with him so she took Bubby home writing, "Bubby purrs the minute he wakes up in the morning and as he goes to sleep every night. He's never asked to go outside once. He must know that he's home now, for good."

We're over the moon that Bubby has found the purrfect family that will love him forever. You can follow Bubby's journey on Instagram!

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Eric And Ollie, the Persian cats!

14-Year-Old Cat Finds Purrfect Companion To Share Golden Years With

A match made in heaven! Earlier this year, a friendly 14-year-old gray cat, originally named LL Cool J, was brought into the Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control in Maryland. The shelter arranged a foster home for this gentle cat so he could live comfortably until the right person came along. 

Little did anyone know, the person who would come along would be the absolute purrfect match and that they would both need each other.
