Dogs Hugging Photo Saves Them from Being Put Down

What a story you’re about to read.

Two dogs were saved from being euthanized after a photo of them hugging went viral.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, a Georgia-based charity, posted a photo of the pair embracing on Facebook.


The caption read:

We’re so scared in here. The people working in the shelters see how scared we are … today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be ‘next.’

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.

The post did the trick and, just over two hours later, the dogs were rescued.


The shelter added an update, saying:

There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together! Thank you for your shares, donations and offers! Just look at these two!!! This is why we rescue.

It is so important that we encourage others to spay and neuter and understand that pets are a lifetime commitment.

Woo boy, that’s some good stuff.
