Two stray dogs named Kala and Keira were up for adoption, but sadly, no one wanted to take them in. The poor dogs had no one and the shelter couldn’t keep them any longer because they didn’t have enough space. However, someone took a picture of the two dogs hugging each other on their last day and the picture went viral. What happens next will leave you in awe!

20. Stray Dogs

Stray dogs have it the worst! They don’t have anyone to care for them and living on the streets is not an easy task, especially when it comes to finding food. Luckily, some shelters save them and help them find adoptive families.

19. Dog Shelters

Even though rescuers save stray dogs, going to the shelter is not always a good thing. The reason we are saying this is because they are kept in cages until they find an adoptive family, but that is super difficult. Keep reading to find out why!

18. Adoptive Families

Even though there might be many people who want to get dogs, most of them choose to purchase them from pet stores. This leaves the shelters with hundreds of dogs to take care of.

17. Overcrowded

The sad part about dogs who live in shelters is that the cages can get overcrowded and older dogs get put away. As heartbreaking as this is, nearly all shelters do it and this is why people should start adopting pets instead of buying them. Kala and Keira’s story is heartbreaking, but don’t worry, it has a happy ending! Read along!

16. Kala And Keira

These two are Kala and Keira, and this is the picture that went viral. Someone took a picture of them and posted it on Snapchat with the caption “‘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”. Then, something amazing happened!

15. Their Last Day

As the picture of Kala and Keira went viral, someone saw their pain and decided to adopt them, but it’s not the man in the picture. Keep reading to find out who chose to save Kala and Keira.

14. Saving Kala And Keira

Two women from Atlanta saw the viral picture and realized that they need to do something about it. Therefore, the two women called the shelter and said that they are going to adopt Kala and Keira. Isn’t this amazing? After taking them home…

13. Big Smiles

Kala and Keira had someone to love them! After spending so much time living on the streets, the two dogs finally had a loving home. I think it’s safe to say that Kala and Keria deserve this.

12. Living In Fear

Kala and Keira were used to living in fear, but everything changed now that they have been adopted. The two Atlanta women are life savers and there’s no doubt about that!

11. Happy Ending

Isn’t it amazing what a picture can do? If no one took a picture of the two dogs hugging it out on their last day at the shelter, then this story wouldn’t have such a happy ending. That’s why it’s important to remember this important thing…

10. Adopting Dogs

If there’s something we take from this story, then it must be that people who are interested in getting a pet should try and adopt instead of going to the pet store. In fact, let’s check out some before and after pictures of adopted dogs and see how a little bit of love changes their lives.
