I often wonder what shelter dogs think when they realize a loving family has adopted them. After spending so many weeks, months, or even years living in a crowded and stressful animal shelter, I think these dogs appreciate what their new family does for them. Adopting a shelter dog is indeed an amazing experience.
Most animal shelters are required to take stray dogs as well as take in surrenders. With limited space in the shelters, most of the shelters are forced to euthanize many dogs in a given year. While there are no-kill shelters that don’t euthanize rescue dogs, they still need help to get all the animals they rescue to find their forever homes.
A nonprofit animal rescue organization called Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is making a massive difference in shelter dogs’ lives. They aim to rescue as many shelter dogs as they can and get them adopted. They start the healing process for the dogs by pulling them from the shelter, which prevents the shelter from euthanizing them if they don’t get adopted.
The next step is to make the dogs they pull from the shelter adoptable, and then they find a suitable family for each of the dogs they rescue. For the workers and volunteers of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, the most rewarding moment of their work is when the dogs they pull from the shelter get adopted by a loving family. The dogs pulled from the shelter also start showing their real personality once they are pulled from a stressful shelter environment into a loving environment.
The dogs show their appreciation by giving their rescuers and new families puppy kisses when they get adopted. The adorable tail wags and the unmistakable excitement that these dogs display when they get adopted show that they know that they have a better life and a better future. Lucky Dogs Animal Rescue continues to work hard to get the dogs they pull from the shelter to find their families and forever homes.
Each dog’s personality is unique, which is why workers at Lucky Dogs Animal Rescue make sure that they find the right owner for a particular dog to prevent having them returned. Here’s a heartwarming video of how Lucky Dogs Animal Rescue works and why we should consider adopting rescue dogs.
