Thankfully, more and more people are realising that adopting pets from shelters is the best way to introduce a pet into your life. Because there's nothing quite like seeing an animal's joy when it realises it's been given a second chance at life.Last December,Benny, got his second chance. This adorable pup had been living at theCarson Animal Care Center, a shelter based in California, US.

Each year in the US, hundreds of thousands of dogs are euthanised for lack of space in shelters.Too old, in bad health, not the 'right' breed or even deemed "not cute enough", these animals don't get that second chance at life.

But thankfully Benny managed to avoid that fate.Barely a few weeks after he arrived at the shelter, a family completely fell for him and decided to take him home with them.
