Talk about new beginnings! Two dogs, Kala and Keira, are getting a fresh start in life, thanks to a photo of the pair hugging.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue in Atlanta posted the precious picture online, along with this message (written from the perspective of one of the dogs):
“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.”
This was intended as a last-ditch effort to save the dogs from being euthanized for lack of space at the shelter, and it worked! Kala and Keira very quickly found a forever home — one they will be sharing.
Here was the follow-up post from Angels Among Us:
“Exactly 2 hours and 6 minutes. That’s how long it took this amazing community of animals lovers to come together to save the lives of two canine friends. We just received word … that Kala and Keira are safely in the car and on their way to a vet — all thanks to you.”
How much better can life get?
