A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about a dog named Astra who was returned to her rescue when she showed aggression on an elevator which was a problem since she lived on the 80th floor. Poor Astra cried when she saw her family leaving her.
We are happy to report that Astra has found a family and it looks like she has found her forever home without elevators.
That story made me feel all warm inside and I don’t get to feel that way too often. With all the pain in the world I wanted to find another happy story. But to make a happy story we have to begin with a sad story.
The sad story looks like this:
This is Kala and Kiera. They were a day away from being sent to the Bridge at their kill shelter in Georgia. A worker at the shelter, in a desperate attempt to save the pups, took a picture of the dogs. As he lined up his shot Kala hugged Kiera .
Kala and Kiera proved my theory. Whenever in doubt hug. The picture made its way to the Angels Amongst Us site where they pleaded with anyone who saw the post to help these two dogs before they crossed the River of Life.
The photo went viral getting thousands of shares and likes and more importantly someone stepped up to foster them. Instead of going to see me they went to a vet and a new foster family.
This week they left the foster family, but not to be returned to the Rescue. Instead they went to their forever home. A woman had recently lost two senior dogs to the Bridge and was looking for two new companions. Kala and Kiera proved to be just those companions. “We turned our tears into smiles with these two young, playful dogs,” said Wendy, the dogs’ new owner.
Wendy is planning to create a Kala and Kiera Facebook page so we can all follow their adventures and hopefully raise money to help Angels Rescue.
We began this with their sad picture and here is their happy photo on what will forever be known as their Gotcha Day.
Remember with the works of good people, prayers and hugs anything is possible
