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.

Homeless Man Rescues All Animals From A Burning Shelter

"[w]e definitely have angels among us," say the people at W-Underdogs in a Facebook post whose animal shelter caught fire while they were picking up supply donations. A situation that could have ended in the worst way possible ended incredibly positively, and that is because of a heroic 53-year-old homeless man named Keith Walker who ran into the smoking building and saved each and every one of the animals inside. 

Walker has been homeless ever since he was 13 years old. He had already known the founder of the shelter, Gracie Hamlin, who had let him keep his dog, a pitbull named Bravo, at the shelter every night. On his way to pick up Bravo from the shelter, Walker saw the fire and ran in, rescuing all of the animals in the shelter - 6 dogs and 10 cats.

"I was nervous as hell, I'm not going to lie. I was really scared to go in there with all that smoke. But God put me there to save those animals," Walker told in a statement to CNN. "If you love a dog, you can love anyone in the world. My dog is my best friend, and I wouldn't be here without him, so I knew I had to save all those other dogs."

Sadly, the W-Underdogs headquarters is now uninhabitable, but in another lucky turn, the shelter was just preparing to move to a different location. As they say in another Facebook post: "As fate would have it, today is the first day of our lease of a new facility we planned to be the new W-Underdogs Headquarters. While the new facility is not exactly 'move-in ready' we were able to move the animals safely into the new facility for the night. They are all happy, warm, safe, and comfortable in their new temporary home."

Hamlin told CNN: "He is my guardian angel. Even the firefighters didn't want to handle the dogs. They called animal control, but Keith was already in the building pulling out the cats and dogs until they were all safe." 

We are so, so thankful to Keith Walker and all the people who helped with the rescue and the moving of the animals, and we hope the cats an the dogs will have an easy time getting used to the new place. Good luck in the new year, guys!

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. 

If you recently adopted a pet share an image with us in the comments below or send us a DM on Facebook to be featured on next week's list! 

Happy Holidays, everyone!
