Repost: “Shelter Dogs’ Before and After Photos Will Fetch Your Feels”

Max and Zoe Goldsmith

My dog, Max, and cat, Zoe, are rescues and the center of my life. Anytime I see a blog post or news article about rescued animals from animal shelters I remember when I brought Max and Zoe home.

My pitbull Max was rescued from a pound in Galesburg, Illinois. It was a pound, pound. Max had fleas, kennel cough, mange… you name it, he had it. Since then, he has become a mama’s boy. (And yes that is my fault.) Max was found in a parking lot. I brought him home to San Francisco where he now lives in a SOMA loft and sleeps on my bed next to me.

My tabby cat Zoe was rescued from the SF SPCA. She was 2 – 3 months old and shy as heck. Zoe was my first cat so it was a huge adjustment for both of us. I nursed her for two months and let her sleep by my pillow. I still adore her and love waking up to her massaging and giving Max a lickdown.

Ok… enough from me. Here is the article that inspired the post.

Rescuing an abandoned animal requires a lot of vet visits and even more amounts of love.

To help pups get back on their paws, the charitable organization Trio Animal Foundation assists shelters, rescues and individuals by paying the medical bills of abandoned animals and giving them a second chance to live a happy, healthy life.

The organization posts before and after photos of the sponsored animals on their blog to show off the impressive transformations.

Though the before photos are quite jarring, it’s a comfort to know that Olympians aren’t the only ones who can make a difference for dogs in need.

Give your pet an extra treat and take a look at the series below.
