These Wholesome Photos Of People Meeting Their New Fur-Babies Are Extremely Heartwarming

by Elana

Adding a pet to the family is a significant event. It doesn't matter if it's your 4th dog, your 7th cat, or your first pet... it's a life-changing moment for human and animal alike. Animal lovers know when they've found the right pet to bring home, whether it's a puppy or kitten or a senior or anything in between, when you feel the connection, there is no other pet on earth that would do. You get that animal and they become yours, forever.

The moment of realization that,"this is it, this animal is my family now," is pure and precious and when it's captured on camera and shared on the Internet, we all can feel the emotion and usually we're taken back to our own moments in time, permanently etched in our hearts, when a pet became family.

Happy Squeezes!
