Shelter Dogs Take Comfort In The Only Thing They Have — Each Other
"We would love to see these two angels rescued together after everything they've been through."
A photo has just surfaced from an extremely busy animal shelter in Miami, Florida - and people are rushing to share it far and wide.
"How heartbreaking is this pic," Urgent Dogs of Miami (UDOM) wrote Thursday morning, posting a photo of two dogs, Kimmy and Brian, huddling together, cheek to cheek, in the shelter.
According to UDOM - which is a networking site run by volunteers working quickly to find shelter dogs at Miami-Dade Animal Services (MDAS) homes - Kimmy and Brian had both been stray dogs, but met at the shelter, where they "found comfort in one another."
It seemed like each of them got a happy ending when they were adopted out to two separate homes. But both of them, through no fault of their own, were dumped back at the shelter this week.
And if they don't find a home soon, they could be put down. Each year, about 1.2 million dogs in shelters are euthanized because they can't find homes.
"We would love to see these two angels rescued together after everything they've been through," UDOM wrote. "Please share them far and wide. The only hope they have is us!"
To adopt Kimmy and Brian, contact the MDAS at (305) 884-1101 and use Kimmy and Brian's ID numbers - A1844971 and A1844972 - to ask about them.
If you don't live in the Miami area but want to help, there are bonded dogs like Kimmy and Brian at shelters across the country. Visit your local shelter or Adopt-a-Pet.com.
