40 Of The Most Wholesome Rescue Pet Photos Of The Month (November Edition)
There are a gazillion reasons to why adopting a pet is the best idea you can think of. Saving a life and giving a pet its second chance is one. Other benefits include fighting puppy mills, saving money, making yourself a better person, boosting your emotional (and physical) wellbeing, and earning the bragging rights we all secretly crave.
But nobody knows it better than people who rescued an animal and adopted one. And this means, it’s that wholesome time of the month where Bored Panda has compiled the monthly post of the most soul-soothing pics of adopted furry friends. Let’s leave the stage to the goodest boys, bestest girls, tiny critters, and measureless love that connects us all.
After you’re done, don’t forget to share your pet adoption stories in the comment section below and check out our previous posts from October, September, August, July, and June. Trust me, they will tuck you in like a much-needed warm blanket for these cold days.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, Kelly DiCicco, who’s the adoptions promotions manager at the ASPCA, told us that despite the recent surge in pet adoptions due to the Covid pandemic and quarantine, animal shelters are under immense strain right now.“
Since it began, COVID-19 has put an immense amount of strain on animal shelters across the country. Because this is an ever-changing situation, each shelter is facing unique challenges specific to its community.”
Due to social distancing requirements, many shelters had to reduce staff members, which “has meant reductions or limits to the number and types of services offered to the public.”
Moreover, most shelters have been hit financially due to reduced donations and the inability to host in-person fundraising events. It turns out that these events in particular play a key role in annual fundraising efforts.

But while the pandemic has created a lot of new challenges for shelters, many are now implementing innovative solutions to adopting procedures.
“With hundreds of thousands of animals across the country currently in shelters, with rescue groups, and in foster care, animal welfare organizations are implementing innovative solutions, including virtual or socially-distanced adoptions, online meet-and-greets using video chat, and minimal-contact drop-offs or pickups to help these animals find adoptive homes.”
Right now, many shelters are working hard to make sure that each pet in need of a loving forever family will not lose a chance to gain one due to the pandemic.
