Two dogs were saved from being put down after a heartbreaking photo surfaced of the pals “hugging.”
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue posted a photo of Kala and Keira appearing to hug. The touching photo was accompanied by a heart-wrenching message from the perspective of Kala.
It read, in part:
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.” Keira is black and not a “real boxer,” just a mix. She’s so brave and tells me it will be okay no matter what happens. She tells me to be brave too but I don’t know if I can be. Can you see our faces. 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…
Just two hours and six minutes after the message was posted, an unnamed veterinarian stepped up to adopt Kala and Keira.
Angels Among Us later posted this awesome update:
