It’s Time To Cry: This Pet Store Secretly Replaced The Animals For Sale With Lovable Rescues

Brazilian animal rescue organization Quatro Patinhas (Four Paws) knows that most people looking for a pet in the area pass up the crowded, broke shelters to buy a new puppy at the pet store instead. To change the way customers look at shelter pets, the organization secretly swapped the very pricey pet store animals with rescues, who are free to adopt. After planting hidden cameras, they watched the magic unfold — and tried to somehow keep their eyes dry as the rescues walked away with new loving homes. [The Dodo]
