Shelter Dog Hugs Her Friend, And The Heart-Wrenching Photo Saved Both Their Lives.
Kala and Keira were rescued and put into a shelter, but their timeline was a little sensitive. In fact, they were getting closer and closer to their "deadline," which is another way to say that if they couldn't get adopted, they would have to be euthanized. It's an unfortunate necessity for many shelters who just don't have the money or the resources to keep all the animals that come in.
Then the shelter workers took this picture. Bet you can guess what happened next.
Here's the heart-wrenching photo.
In just two hours and six minutes, a volunteer took them to a veterinary office where they would be examined and adopted to willing, loving families.
If a photo of two dogs hugging doesn't pull at your heartstrings, nothing will. We're glad these two adorable dogs are safe and headed to their forever homes.
