If you’ve been down in the dumps, we have something special for you that we think is going to make you happy INSTANTLY.

I’m talking about photos of rescue pets who have found their forever homes and who are clearly living their best lives!

Oh yeah, you know that’s the good stuff!

Unless you have a cold, black muscle pumping in your chest instead of a heart, we think you’re gonna love every last one of these pictures of very good boys and girls.

Are you ready?


1. She stole your heart.

And now she has a new home!

I rarely adopt (I always rescue then adopt lol) but this little cutie that was born with a facial birth defect stole my heart the second I saw her adoption post on Reddit. Please say Hi to my new adopted kitten, Nala! ❤❤❤ from cats

2. These two will be best friends forever.

Hey, opposites attract sometimes!

3. I think he likes you, too.

No doubt about that!

My newly adopted friend. I think he likes me from aww

4. Adopting a senior kitty.

She looks like she has a huge personality.

We adopted this 11 year old senior, ShayShay, today from a woman who couldn’t keep her anymore. Her first photo matches her personality. We are so happy to have you, beautiful girl. from aww

5. One step closer to his dream.

Well, isn’t this cute?

Our son’s dream of becoming a k-9 officer got one step closer today. We adopted him at 2.5 after his parents passed away. His new best friend, a little girl named Jovi, was born on his biological mother’s birthday. Meant to be! 💗 from ProtectAndServe

6. Welcome home, Arnold!

He looks like a very good boy.

Rescued this very good boy, Arnold!! He looks so handsome in his sweater!! from aww

7. This cat looks amazing.

Like a beast straight out of the wild.

We adopted Nova 12 weeks ago today and I wanted to share with you all how much he has changed since he arrived! from aww

You’re safe and sound now, buddy!

9. Her twilight years will be her best.

A new addition to the family.

Just rescued this sweet lil old lady, Chloe. She’s 12 and she’s gonna have her finest years yet! from rarepuppers

10. Awwww. This is very wholesome.

Just look at that face!

This is Dalton, the 13 year old diabetic dog my family adopted today from aww

11. You had to keep these two together.

And we’re glad you did!

Been telling myself the only way to keep them together is to just adopt them myself. It’s not my fault. I have no choice. from aww

Well, now I feel a whole lot better! No doubt about it!

How about you?
