Shelter Dog Hugs Her Friend Hours Before Euthanasia And Saves Their Lives

Kala and Keira, two shelter dogs who were hours from certain death by euthanization, proved that hugs can save lives. Two hours and six minutes after a photo of Kala, the brown dog, hugging her friend was posted on Facebook, they found a foster home willing to take them in and save them from certain death.

Their photo was shared by Angels Among Us, a pet rescue in Georgia that saves dogs and cats from other high-kill shelters in the rest of the state. Along with their heartfelt plea, their photo sent a powerful message: these dogs, and many others just like them, need your help!

It is so heart breaking when healthy animals put to sleep. This is not right.

Exactly. People need to be more responsible & less pets die.

Wish they could all be saved. If only the human race did their part there wouldn't be such senseless killings each day.

Or a pet over population to begin with. People seem to only want kittens and puppies. *sigh*

Agree, Shara. I belong to a site called nextdoor.com, and my neighborhood uses it to report loose or lost pets, unsavory characters knocking on doors, etc. Has done a lot of good in our neighborhood. This was a terrific story!
