25 shelter dogs photographed right after adoption

“Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, and filling an emptiness we didn’t even know we had.” says an anonymous quote.

You can see the sense of relief and gratitude on the faces of these dogs who, for the first time in their lives, are being offered a permanent home.  Many of these dogs share a smile, some begin to share their trust while others just share a hug. But most importantly, they’re just glad to finally be part of a loving family.
