ATLANTA — A photo of two dogs hugging that was posted to Facebook on Monday saved them from certain death.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is a nonprofit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in north Georgia, according to their website.

On Monday, the charity shared a photo of shelter dogs Kala and Kiera hugging with a plea for help.

The photo quickly went viral and has been shared more than 9,000 times since it was posted.

The plea for help read, in part:
