Heart-Touching Before and After Photos of Shelter Dogs

Do you have a before and after photo of your rescue dog? Show us in the comments section.

Some of these dogs were once so matted and filthy they could scarcely move.  Others were just so dejected they no longer bothered to look up.  These before and after photos show just what a huge change a little bit of love can inspire.

  1. I don’t know why I look at these photos, I know what will happen. I cry my eyes out for those poor pups. The only comfort is that someone took care of them and loves them now. But whoever the people were that caused those dogs to be so horribly neglected, I hope they suffer every day of their miserable human lives.

      1. I couldn’t agree with you more!
        If I were a judge, I would make sure these animal abusers be locked up in jail for years and years!

        Thanks for the wonderful helpers & organizations making such a difference in these poor dogs life.

        We should all do our share!

    1. I so agree. God didn’t create them to be abuse, but to give the unconditional love they give to those of us that need it undeservingly. Even the homeless find comfort in their love.

  2. I adopted one that was a stray and hes the best dog ever,would show a before and after pic but on’t know how…

  3. Lovely pictures. Now imagine how much better our world would be if we were willing to do such for our fellow HUMAN BEINGS. But unfortunately, the vast majority of people ooh-ing and aah-ing would be horrified if it were suggested they could do the same for someone who is the same species as them.

    1. Interesting remark. Speaking of which, this week’s episode of NCIS did just that! Di Nozzo, Sr showed up in town and ended up befriending a homeless woman. Lovely episode and on point with your comment.

  4. We’ve rescued a few dogs like this in the last couple weeks, and they’re already showing amazing improvement. One little pup though (I named her Mocha), is still fighting for her life 🙁

  5. Love these stories…just can’t understand why people choose to be so cruel? There is no excuse just don’t have a dog if you can’t treat them like family.
    Thank you to people who choose to rescue

  6. Rescues know they’ve been given another chance…. That’s why their love runs so deep….❤️❤️❤️. Here’s the story of my girl (my 3rd rescue)….

  7. Deacon spent the first year of his life chained to a fence as a ‘junkyard dog’, and lived the next eight in a no-kill shelter. I met him while volunteering as a dog-walker and adopted him several months later. He’s now a glorious 15 years old and quite comfortable with freedom.

  8. I’ve come to the conclusion that it must give certain elements of ‘humanity’ a sick perverted twisted kind of pleasure to hurt these & any animal.
    Especially when dogs just live to love & be loved

  9. Ariel after rescue when she realised she had a home and human who loved her. Previously she was 4 years caged as a breeding machine.

  10. I really hate people that neglect any animals either by ignorance or simple laziness. The fines in this country are ridiculously lax. Give me a dog over almost anyone.

  11. Sanne Rosbøg – endnu en idé. Ret nem at udføre (min personlige favorit er de sidste billeder, med de to i bilen; pure joy! 🙂 )

  12. This is my blind, senior foster, Kira before and after. She’s from Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue and was scheduled to be euthanized.

  13. I don’t have a before pic. But he was in a foster home before I brought him home. He now has me well trained. Leo is his name.

  14. Here are before and after of my Buddy, no one wanted such a beautiful striped dog so I adopted him and that was the best decision of mine. Because he is really sweet and cool buddy:)

  15. Rescued from an isolated life at the end of a chain. My little foster dog is now learning happiness, love, and wants the perfect family of his own…

  16. What wonderful stories of love and warmth. Hurrah! Thank you all you marvellous, caring people for rescuing all these doggies. They all look happy, loved, well fed, clean and very well cared for. All have become such beautiful dogs. Very gratifying. Above of all fantastic is that they are loved…God bless you all and thank you. I too have rescue dogs, Chihuahua Benedicta who is blind and Trinity a pretty Retriever Schauer mix. They are our pride and joy. Viva!
