IT TOOK JUST 2 HOURS AND 6 MINUTES AFTER THEIR PHOTO WAS POSTED FOR KALA AND KEIRA TO FIND A HOME.
The two shelter puppies in Atlanta, Georgia caught the eye of Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.
They were told by the shelter that the two frightened friends had sadly reached their “deadline”, literally.
It was their last day, and they were scheduled to be euthanized.
With time quickly running out, the shelter snapped this photo of the two dogs and Angels Among Us posted this plea for help on Facebook:
“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. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be “next.” Keira is black and not a “real boxer,” just a mix.
She’s so brave and tells me it will be okay no matter what happens.
She tells me to be brave too but I don’t know if I can be. Can you see our faces. Keira knows what will happen. You can see it in her eyes. She’s putting on a brave face for sure but I can feel her heart beating fast while 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. Now it’s over. Unless…”
“Oh my gosh!!! We see a lot of things in rescue but this absolutely will reduce you to tears! Kala and Keira are in a shelter and are scheduled to be put to sleep. Today is their last day unless we can save them. This is as urgent as urgent can get. We really don’t have time to spare. We have no fosters available.
