They were 'next,' but photo saves lives of two shelter dogs

Posted: Updated:

One picture turned out to be the golden ticket for two shelter dogs in Georgia.

Kala and Keira were just hours away from being euthanized at the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, according to CBS News and that’s when the pet rescue organization posted a photo of the two dogs hugging on their Facebook page. Once posted, the touching photo was shared thousands of times and in a matter of two hours the dogs were released from the shelter.

The latest Facebook entry, posted Monday, July 20 by the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue organization, states that while the dogs haven’t been adopted yet, they are in a foster home and have been checked out by a veterinarian.

The original post would tug on anyone’s heartstrings:

“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.’”
