We recently asked you to send us photos of your rescued animals, and we’ve been flooded with cuteness! While we wish we could have included all the pics here, we’d like to share a handful of the adorable photos and stories that we received.

Think your animal is the cutest? Submit a pic, and he or she could be featured in the next roundup!

Kathleen (Clarendon Hills, Illinois) rescued Molly, a lab/border collie mix, and they’re now best friends. Molly is so loving, affectionate, and adorable that she is also a therapy dog!

Did you know that every year, 6 to 8 million dogs and cats end up in animal shelters and that roughly half must be euthanized for lack of a good home? Remember to spay and neuter and ALWAYS adopt, never buy, to help end the animal overpopulation crisis. Let’s do our part to give all animals their second chance at a happy ending 🙂
