Life may be brutal to man’s greatest friend at times, and too many dogs end themselves in shelters.
While for some, adoption marks the start of a new chapter, for others, the situation is devastating because the only alternative option is to be put down.
I cry every time I see a dog in a situation like this as a dog lover. However, as much as we wish to rescue these poor creatures, we are sometimes powerless to do so.
Kala and Keira, two canines at Angels Among Us Pet Rescue in Atlanta, appeared to be doomed.
They were on the verge of being euthanized because no one wanted to adopt them, despite the fact that they were such sweet and well-behaved puppies.
Because time was running out, the shelter’s volunteers made one final try to find them a new home.
In a frantic bid to save them, they posted a photo of the couple hugging on Facebook.
“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. “
“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,” they captioned the photo.
They are successful, as the stunning photograph became viral in a matter of minutes.
Kala and Keira’s savior arrived less than two hours after the photo was posted on Facebook.
The shelter staff said, “There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together!”
Thankfully, these two young ladies are already settled in their new home. This story’s conclusion could not have been more perfect!
