(CBS News) In July 2015, a heartbreaking photo of two shelter dogs hugging went viral. The dogs, Kala and Keira, were just one day away from being euthanized at the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue in northern Georgia, when their picture spread like wildfire across social media.
\"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.\"
Well, the post shattered the hearts of dog lovers across the country; until just two hours later, someone showed up and rescued the canine best friends... together.
