| Right | August 5, 2020

Dear readers,

Pets are beautiful, wonderful beings who bring happiness and companionship to so many of us. It’s sad, then, that animal shelters and pet-fosterers are required to look after those poor animals who didn’t get the loving home they deserved.

We’ve rounded up 23 stories from our archives that show the hard work that animal shelters do while putting up with ignorant pet owners and poor confused animals, and helping to filter out adopters who have no business owning an animal!
