Heartwarming Pics Show Rescue Dogs' Incredible Transformations
**Warning - potentially distressing images ahead.**
A number of mistreated puppies who had been victim of neglect have been given an amazing trans-fur-mation.
RSPCA charity staff were "left in tears" when they rescued 30 dogs from kennels in Skegness, Lincolnshire.
Some were found with fur so matted, their breeds were unrecognisable at first sight - which left them with skin problems that required veterinary care.
Others needed emergency dental work to enable them to eat properly while some were found covered in faeces.
However, these sweet pups have had a happy ending, under the loving care of the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre in Nottingham where they will recover until they are ready to be rehomed.

The animal welfare charity was alerted to the plight of the dogs last week before the kennel owner agreed to sign the pets over into RSPCA care.
Ella Carpenter, manager at Radcliffe Animal Centre, said: "The dogs were taken for immediate veterinary attention where many were so badly matted they had to have their fur shaved off, this process which took several hours.
"The matting had caused skin problems for some of the dogs so they have been having regular baths while here and have also enjoyed some more clipping to make them feel more comfortable.
"Many also needed emergency dental work as their teeth were so rotten and some were struggling to eat properly and they were in pain.
"In total 80 teeth have had to be removed from five dogs and they are now on antibiotics and pain relief."
She continued: "They really were unrecognisable as to their breeds when rescued but they are all looking great now and are a lot more comfortable in themselves.
"They have a new lease of life and are now able to move freely without experiencing the pain of those heavy matts, glued together with excrement, pulling and tearing at their skin.
"We will spend the coming weeks rehabilitating them and will give them lots of care and attention so when we are ready to re-home the dogs we can match them with a perfect future owner."
