A woman demonstrates the impact that adoption can have with before and after photos of a pit bull

Adopting a rescued animal saves a life. It is one of the most amazing things anybody has ever done. You become such a hero to the creature you saved and to the global community of animal rights activists.

If you ever think that you haven’t done enough with your life, adopting a rescue animal can quickly and permanently remove that sensation.

The love you offer to your rescued animal will be returned twice.

Some argue that rescue dogs know how to love better because they have been without it and understand how tough it can be.

Meriah Jae responds to her sister’s decision to adopt a pit bull.

When Meriah Jae’s sister acquired a pit bull from a shelter, the dog underwent an incredible metamorphosis. It really showed how much a loving home for life can change an animal’s life.
