Two stray male dogs, unceremoniously dumped at the high kill Orange County Animal Shelter in Orlando, Florida comfort each other in a time of high stress as the dogs cope with strangers, constant barking, and the fear of the unknown.

Neither dog had met until they became roommates, but their photo rings through to the inner core of our souls as the heartbreaking thought of these two young lives, barely three-years-old each, may end in less than a week.

The white and tan dog's name is Darby; he is also known as A299449 while his bonded friend doesn't even have a name, and is only known as A299546. Both dogs have until September 4 and September 5 respectively to find homes.

Click here to follow the Facebook thread. Thousands of posts, pledges for donations to an approved rescue organization, and some offers to provide temporary fostering for the dogs have been discussed. No one has yet to adopt either of the dogs.

If one picture is worth a thousand words, let's hope this heartbreaking photo of two terrified dogs assuring each other that tomorrow will be the "day" they are rescued comes true.
