When you are adopting a pet, it can be a huge deal. Not only do you bring a new member into your family, but you are also providing a safe haven for the shelter animal. Sometimes, these animals take a while to get used to the proper nutrition and all the love that you provide for them but there have been many cases where the effect of adoption can be seen within a single day. We have curated a list of some pictures taken one day before and after adoption that shows how much of the difference the shelter pets feel when it comes to joining a new family.
Spokey here was quite in a state of dismay at the shelter but when a family adopted him, he could not contain his happiness. You can see the smile on his face when he was at his new home and that says a lot about the affection that he was getting.
Bumble Bee used to live alone in the shelter, away from the other pets. However, once he was adopted and properly cleaned up, he became quite social with the new family.
When Jackson was in the shelter, he used to stay quiet and to himself. However, when he was adopted, he started to play around the house and was quite fun in himself.
Pillow here looks quite sad in the shelter. Perhaps, he thought of the shelter as more of a prison. However, once he was adopted, he could not stop smiling and his smile went from ear to ear.
Sandy was always looking at the people and other pets around him with suspicion when he was at the shelter. However, when he was with his new adopted family, he could not stop smiling with his tongue out.
