138 Most Wholesome Rescue Pet Photos Of The Month (October Edition)

138 Most Wholesome Rescue Pet Photos Of The Month (October Edition)

What kind of things fill your heart with joy? Saying "I love you" is one; a scoop of chocolatey ice cream is second. But there’s nothing quite like meeting a little furry critter, looking into their eyes, and realizing this is the point you’ll never part. Sharing the moments of happiness and sorrow, there’s a whole adventure of life waiting around the corner.


All pets deserve a second chance. And this is the most wholesome list of the month compiled by Bored Panda that celebrates precisely that. Heart-melting and soul-soothing pictures of adopted animals will tuck you in like a blanket.


Because there are few things more beautiful than sharing your heart with someone who has been patiently waiting for a chance to wake up in their loving forever home. Extra warmth is waiting in our previous rescue animal posts from September, August, July, June, and May.
