50 Wholesome Rescue Pet Pics To Heal Your Soul (September Edition)

Adopting a pet is an important decision and it shouldn’t be something you rush into. But it’s so rewarding. After all, you’re saving more than one life — by taking an animal home, you’re not only giving them a second chance at life but you’re also freeing up space so the rescue organization can help another critter.

According to some estimates, around 6.3 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 810,000 are returned to their owners, 4.1 million shelter animals are adopted, and 920,000 are euthanized.

It’s worth mentioning that the number of dogs and cats euthanized in American shelters annually has declined from roughly 2.6 million in 2011 but I think we agree it should be even lower. Way, way lower.

Each month, we at Bored Panda accentuate the difference a loving family makes for an abandoned or mistreated animal by celebrating the ones that opened their doors and hearts to those who needed love and care the most.
