ATLANTA — The lives of two dogs were saved after Angels Among Us, a pet rescue based out of Atlanta, used social media to get the pooches adopted.A picture was taken of dogs Kala and Keira hugging in their pound cell. The picture was posted alongside a warning they were about to be euthanized and a heartbreaking story told from their perspective.

Part of the post reads:

“If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me… She gave me hope when I had non. Now it’s over. Unless…”

Just two hours after the photo was posted, the doggie duo was adopted.
