3 When Sassy came to Rescue-a-bull at 8 yrs, she did not know much about the world but was willing to learn and love. Sassy's life is now full of cuddling and play dates. Beth and Sassy are so thankful to have found each other!
4 Coco Puff was rescued by Friends for Life Animal Rescue in Arizona. She was adopted and renamed Carlie. Carlie is a happy, friendly, energetic cuddlebug who is very attached to her new mom, Kristina. Carlie's new family is delighted to have her in their home!

6 3-legged tabby Olive (on R) began as a foster in need of a home- but when rescued Max (on L) took it upon himself to always comfort and groom her- Olive became part of the family forever!
7 And these two have been inseparable ever since!
8 Max secretly loves all of the love and cuddles his adoptive mom showers upon him- even though he sometimes likes to pretend like he doesn't ;)
9 Jack and his adopted brother Stanley!
10 Millie was so glad when the people who adopted one of her kittens decided to adopt her too!!

18 Pepper relaxing in her foster home daydreaming about what her forever home will be like.
19 Pepper reading up on how to maximize her chances of being adopted and ways to assess her compatibility with potential adopters.
20 Pepper in her new home cuddled up to previously adopted brother Gus. These two adore each other and play non-stop! Apparently all that research on compatibility paid off..
21 Deniro (on far right under his napping sister) found an amazing forever home that absolutely adores him! This is not an uncommon picture of this adopted trio. They are always cuddling. Rescue groups like Rescue-a-bull work hard to find the perfect fit for their dogs and pictures like this prove that all the hard work pays off.
22 Lovable Milton had limited use of his back legs but was still full of energy and able to get around. His adopter...
23 ...got him a fancy set of wheels so he could always join in on longer family outings.
24 Mama Faye celebrates the love of her adopted Petey!
25 Zelda' thankful eyes say it all!

27 Minnow has even taken to rapping about her experience and the home she shares with Dr. Pia Salk and the rest of her adopted sibling. (Note the Bling!)
28 Guppy, suspected to be Minnow's long lost brother watched as Minnow was adopted and hoped he'd soon be chosen too...
29 Thankfully Dr. Pia secured a home for Guppy too and now he and Minnow get to lounge and take in all the love they so deserve!
30 Missy Chow shows the love she feels for her adoptive family and forever home!
