Last fall, pet parents across the U.S. shared how the love of their adopted pet has changed their life for the better in our annual Love Stories campaign. Today in partnership with BOBS® from Skechers®, we’re announcing the 25 winning Love Stories in honor of our 25th anniversary! 

Love Stories reinforce the unconditional love we all feel for our pets and celebrate the lifesaving act of pet adoption. Over the years, we’ve received more than 25,000 incredible Love Stories. Each one showcasing the countless ways shelter pets change our lives for the better — from bringing joy to everyday moments to helping overcome tragedies. This year was no different.

After rounds of deliberating review, we’re proud to share the winners!
