A dog named Lola was found in an abandoned house where she was living in her own feces for at least six months. Unfortunately, the other dogs in the house had died, but allegedly, a neighbor had been bringing her food, @lola.and.ziggy wrote on a TikTok video of the scared dog.

Another dog named Ziggy was found in a kill shelter and was about to be put down. @lola.and.ziggy believes that he was abandoned by his previous owners.

Now, Lola and Ziggy are pretty much the best friends in the entire world. In an adorable video, they can be seen sprinting around a green field.

According to national estimates, approximately 6.3 million companion animals are abandoned and enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. In the US alone, over 5.4 million cats are killed on the side of the road. If you happen to notice an animal on the side of the road, whether or not the animal is injured, safely put on the hazard lights and pull your car completely off the road before attempting to rescue them, says the Humane Society.

Here are the full rescue tips that just may come in handy one day, and while you’re at it, sign this petition to demand all states make all animal abuse a felony now!
