by Stephanie

Adopting a pet can be one of the most rewarding and life-changing decisions you will ever make. Not to mention, it's one of the kindest things you could ever do.

After all, you are saving a life. One that may otherwise be put to an end, or at the very least not be very happy if it weren't for you. Plus, when you adopt a pet, you get a best friend for life! What could be better than that?

We love adoption stories, and we have a list of some of the very best below.
