It took just over two hours for this pair of dog buddies to not only escape being put to sleep but find a new home – together.
The Atlanta-based Angels Among Us Pet Rescue posted the above photo of Kala and Keira, two dogs scheduled for euthanization, on Facebook on Monday. Below the photo was a short, first-person passage written from the perspective of one of the dogs.
“If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me. I’ll see her as she goes down the hallway,” the text read. “She won’t come back and I’ll cry. They’ll come for me next and I won’t be as brave.”
And boy did the post make an impact. It got thousands of likes and shares, but most importantly, it also found the dogs a home.
“They are safe!” read the follow-up post showing them next to their rescuer. “There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together!”

The post also asked animal lovers to donate to Angels Among Us so as to help future dogs like Kala and Keira find a similarly happy ending.
