ATLANTA — A photo of two dogs hugging that was posted to Facebook on Monday saved them from certain death.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, a nonprofit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in north Georgia, shared a photo Monday of shelter dogs Kala and Kiera hugging with a plea for help, FOX8 reported. The photo was shared more than 9,000 times on social media.
The plea for help 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.
Not long after the photo was posted, the two dogs were rescued. The charity posted a photo of Kala and Kiera with their new owner.
