Scared Shelter Puppy Hugged Her Best Friend Before They Were Put Down, Then A Miracle Happened

A heartbreaking photo of a puppy hugging another dog before they were scheduled to be euthanized that broke our hearts.

The two scared friends had reached their “deadline”, so the shelter captured a photo of them and posted this plea for help on Angels Among Us Pet Rescue’s Facebook page along with a heartbreaking caption:

“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…”

Amazingly, this heart-wrenching image helped the dogs and saved them from being euthanized. It took just 2 hours and 6 minutes after the photo was shared for Kala and Keira to find a home. One local Atlanta resident arrived at the shelter to give them a foster home.

THEY ARE SAFE!!! There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together! …

Thankfully, Kala and Keira have been adopted by Wendy and Pam, a pair of best friends from Atlanta. They saw their story in People magazine and offered to give them a forever home.

Congrats to Kala and Keira! We are happy to know that they have finally found their loving home, where they will enjoy their new life with wonderful humans.

Please share this fantastic story with your friends and family!
