In July 2015, a photo of two shelter dogs hugging went viral. The dogs, Kala and Keira, were just one day away from being euthanized when their picture was quickly distributed among social media. Its caption read: “I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here… today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be “next”… 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.” The dogs were both saved within two hours.
