Get your tissues ready, you're about to experience all of the feels.

Two dogs were scheduled to be euthanized by the Angels Among Us Rescue Pet Rescue centre in Georgia America, before a photo of them hugging went viral on Facebook.

Kala and Keira were just hours away from being put down when this photo of the pair hugging was shared on the rescue centre's Facebook page.

Underneath the photo was this touching message.

"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".

Within minutes the post started to receive attention from the public, and had been shared thousands of times after two hours, which led to their rescue as a foster home stepped in to adopt them, after a quick visit to the vet.

Even in this circumstance we can't imagine either of the dogs being too happy about a trip to the vet, but they seem to have gotten over it pretty quickly judging by this photo of them enjoying their newly acquired freedom.


THEY ARE SAFE!!! There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together! ...
