ATLANTA — A heartbreaking photo of two dogs, Kala and Keira, sharing an embrace and captioned from the perspective of the hugging dog pleading for its life, has saved these two their lives. The photo was posted Monday on Facebook, and within two hours, the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue were inundated with adoption requests.
The photo was shared by the rescue group in Atlanta, on their Facebook page. The online post was written in the voice of Kala, who was worrying what might happen to the furry friends if they weren’t rescued on time.
The post said, “I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here. The people working in 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.”
The emotional posts told a sad story, portraying how scared the dogs must be feeling about their impending fate. The Angels Among Us Pet Rescue added that unless the two dogs were saved immediately, all options had been exhausted, and it would be their last day.
Within two hours and six minutes from the time the photo was posted, the dogs were saved and placed in a foster home together. A volunteer from the organization picked the two up and brought them to a veterinarian to be checked before delivering them to their foster home.
The online photos of Kala and Keira have received over 21,900 likes, have been shared by close to 3,500 and received almost 3,000 comments. After the dogs were saved by their foster family the rescue shared the wonderful news.
