Terrified shelter dog hugs best friend hours before being put down and saves their lives

There is no end to having dogs continuously roaming the streets as irresponsible owners abandon them without any remorse. Rescue shelters can only do so much to fix this mess, and each has limited capacity and resources for housing animals in their temporary home. If the shelter cannot find people who would adopt their pets, then it leaves some to have no choice but to put them to a terrible fate – euthanasia.

This topic has become a long debate concerning humanity, whether to allow euthanasia in shelters or not. Euthanizing is a term to put a living being to a swift and humane death, and it is some animal shelters’ final option to allow free space for more rescues to be taken care of.

However, many animal advocates have frowned upon this act and instead suggested that euthanasia should be reserved for only the gravely sick animals to avoid infecting other pets in the shelter. Plenty of shelters have adapted to this idea already, although some stuck to this conventional method to keep their shelter running.

Both dogs were together ever since they were transferred in 2015 at Etowah Valley Humane Society’s (EVHS) animal shelter, a non-profit shelter in Georgia. They were bunkmates and they have shared almost everything in their whole life.
