The lives of two dogs were saved after a picture of them hugging, just a day before they were due to be euthanised went viral.
The picture was put up by Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, a nonprofit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats who are about to killed at shelters. The picture which went viral on Facebook, has seen over 13,000 shares.
The Kala and Keira were photographed hugging each other in a cage at unknown shelter. In the photo, Kala was tightly embracing Keira’s neck. Both dogs looked pensive and fearful, as they if they were aware of what was waiting them.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue wrote on their Facebook post accompanying the photo of the two dogs, “I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here. The people working in the shelters see how scared we are but just told each other that today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be ‘next.'”
The touching image of the dogs’ embrace proved to be successful, who were saved from the shelter by the charity. The dogs are now up for adoption.
