20 Times Animals Met Their Guardian Angels at Just the Right Moment

Not all heroes wear capes, they say, and kind-hearted people who choose to adopt animals in need instead of buying pets can surely be called our superheroes. Whether it’s the intentional act of rescuing a lonely soul from a shelter or an unexpected encounter, cats and dogs who got help from these people will always be grateful to their saviors.

Here, at Bright Side, we can’t stop admiring the people who helped animals in need in these 20 heartwarming stories, and we hope that every lonely animal finally finds a loving home.
