Shelter dog saves best friend hours from euthanasia by hugging her

A very touching story has been doing the rounds on social media after a dog at a shelter called Angel Among Us Pet Rescue saved his best friend from death with a single hug. When Kala hugged Keria in a heart-touching way, she showed the world that love has the power to save lives.

With so many shelter dogs bursting at the seams with street dogs, it has become common practice to euthanize animals if they are not adopted within a certain time. For one dog, that fateful day was fast approaching, so in desperation, shelter staff posted a photo on Facebook, as reported by The Telegraph.

In the photo, Kala has her front legs wrapped around Keira as they sit in their shared cage. “If no one saves us, she will be taken away from me,” the heartbreaking description under the photo read.

The photo immediately made its rounds on the Internet and was shared thousands of times within minutes. A local resident saw the photo and made his way to the shelter to meet the two. Within hours, another photo was posted along with their new loving owners.

If you didn’t believe before, now this should be proof that a single post can save the lives of cute shelter dogs who are still searching for their perfect home. You can help make more happy endings possible for dogs like Kala and Keira by sharing their emotional story, thus encouraging friends and family to adopt from a local shelter.
