Adoption Brings Forever Home Dreams To Life For Sick And Lonely Cats

Every year, more than 3 million cats enter animal shelters and rescues. The ASPCA estimates 1.6 million of these cats go on to find their forever homes. So you could say, shelter and rescue workers just might be the fairy godparents who help dreams come true for kitties.

For some felines, the magical journey to home is not an easy one. Many cats come to shelters sick, injured, and scared. Some have never known the comforts of home; others have lost it.  Whatever their story, thanks to the hard work of cat lovers, so many felines find their happy ending through adoption.

Across social media, cat parents have shared what rescue and adoption did for their kitties and the photos are pure magic!
