The rescue group later added an enthusiastic update to the original photo of Kala and Keira hugging:
"From the time we posted on Facebook until the time the dogs were out of the shelter and safely in the car ... 2 hours and 6 minutes. That's how you take action!!"
In Kala and Keira's case, their touching display tugged on heartstrings all across the country, enabling them to find a much-needed foster home in the nick of time.
But there are thousands of dogs just like them who are still waiting for their miracles.
