Shelter Dog Hugs Her Puppy Friend—And It Ends Up Saving Their Lives

Two shelter dogs were scheduled to be put down when a heartbreaking photo was posted to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue’s Facebook page along with an even more heartbreaking caption:

“If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me.”

Within two hours, the heart-wrenching photo worked its magic. A local Atlanta man arrived at the shelter and rescued both dogs!

The Facebook post read: “THEY ARE SAFE!!! 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. It is so easy to say, why won’t the shelter do something but they are the ones reaching out to us begging for help. In a perfect world they would be empty as every animal should be loved and in a home. We appreciate the shelter getting this picture to us and allowing us to share it with our followers! We can do amazing things when we all work together!”

Amazing what a hug can accomplish. 🙂
