    16 Heartwarming Pet Adoption Stories From TikTok

    Let the emotions flow!

    Hi, I'm Lizzy, and I spent several years fostering kittens before finding my forever fluffers, Angelica and Otis.

    I know — magnificent floofs.

    I can’t have any more pets at my apartment, so these days I get my pet rescue fix by watching TikToks and gently weeping.

    Please join me on this cathartic journey and let the happy tears flow!
