These 18 Before-And-After Photos Of Rescue Pets Prove That Love Really Is All You Need.

Animals are meant to be outside playing and experiencing the wonders of nature. Unfortunately, too many animals face abuse and negligence from puppy mills, underground animal fighting and even natural disasters.

Often, our furry friends are labelled as wild beasts or without feeling and subjected to cruelty and pain at the hands of some insensitive people. The emotional and physical trauma dogs, cats and other creatures exhibit are as real and as raw as any human being would.

The good news is, with a little love and gentle care, our cuddly friends can make an almost complete reversal and become the happy creatures they were meant to be. There are also ways to end the brutal and inhumane treatment of animals. For more information, visit the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Take a look below at before-and-after photos of rescued animals in shelters and their transformation once adopted by a loving family. The look in their eyes is nothing short of pure joy.
