Have you cried your daily tears of joy yet today? Well, get a hanky, because these photos of rescue dogs heading home for the first time will make you weep.

According to The Bark Post (the doggie paper of record), "Some waited for months, some were saved in their final hour, and all have found loving forever homes."
