Fortunately, an increasing number of people are ready to assume this risk and become life-saving heroes. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 3.2 million animal shelter residents find new homes each year. There are 1.6 million fur babies among them. The most crucial portion is that "pet euthanasia rates have fallen by more than 75 percent in major American cities in recent years." The data suggest that we are on the right route to offering those who actually need it a second opportunity at life.

Adoption success stories show that even the most adorable cats can be tamed. Furthermore, these cats' physical and emotional transformations might take your breath away. Take a look at Cousteau, a freshly proclaimed little prince from Paris who looks eerily similar to the character in Antoine de Saint-renowned Exupéry's novel "The Little Prince."

It's possible that some adorable cats will surprise you. Trojan, a cat, gave her parents not one, but four young kittens and was a valuable member of the family gang. The transformation is practically immediate after the street cats are rescued and placed in loving homes. Many people say that adopting a cat from a shelter is one of their best decisions.

Will you be the next hero to save a lonely feline soul waiting for you on the other side of the world? Meow is the answer.
