16 Before-And-After Photos Of Rescued Dogs

To commemorate International Homeless Animal Day, we decided to collect some of the most heart-breaking (and heart-warming) dog rescue stories we’ve ever seen and put them all in one place. This day is a great opportunity to donate to your nearest animal shelter/rescue center and, if you’re looking for a new furry companion, to adopt a pet that needs your love and care.

Make a difference. Save a life.
