With so many things outside of our control right now (like the President’s Twitter feed), most of us probably need some sort of release. For some, this might be regular yoga practice or listening to an audiobook. While for others, passing the time away looking at cute animals on Instagram is the way to go.
No matter your preference (whether you’re a dog person and not a cat person and vice versa), these cute rescue animals on Instagram will be sure to bring a smile to your face and some lightness to your heart. While the focus of our list is certainly weighted towards adorably furry mammals, it also features rescue animals. And we must remember that as cute as they are, it’s not just about being cute. Great photography from human the roommates is key on Instagram!
