Love can do wonders for people and for animals too. The sad fact is that many people and animals are abandoned and unloved and this results in terrible physical and mental trauma for them. People have doctors and psychiatrists to take care of them, but animals, once abandoned, are doomed. They can contract skin diseases and that will make them more alone. But as humans, we are kind and empathetic.
Here are 30 photos of rescued dogs while they were in terrible conditions, and their transformation over a period of time:
He was starving and so weak that he was not able to stand up. Within 7 weeks, he’s healthy and happy.

Starved and emaciated, Coconut needed a lot of love. And he got it. Now, he’s basking beside the swimming pool.
