Photo of Dogs Hugging Saved Them from Euthanasia [PHOTO]
A picture that went viral on social media ended up with two dogs being adopted from a Georgia shelter.
The picture was taken on Monday morning by Angels Among Us Pet Rescue. The two dogs, Kala and Keira, were nearing their deadline at a Georgia shelter, and were scheduled to be put down. The photo was accompanied by this caption, written from the dog’s point of view:
“Keira knows what will happen. You can see it in her eyes. She’s putting on a brave face for sure but I can feel her heart beating fast while I’m clinging to her. If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me. I’ll see her as she goes down the hallway. She won’t come back and I’ll cry. They’ll come for me next and I won’t be as brave. We’ve comforted each other while we were here. She gave me hope when I had none. Now it’s over. Unless… “
Two hours later….
The rescue also defended the shelter:
“It is so easy to say, why won’t the shelter do something but they are the ones reaching out to us begging for help. In a perfect world they would be empty as every animal should be loved and in a home. We appreciate the shelter getting this picture to us and allowing us to share it with our followers! We can do amazing things when we all work together!”
My heart is overwhelmed with love from this story! Woof indeed!
