Update 7/27/14: Kyra and Delaware have been adopted together!
Over a month ago, a photo of two snuggling dogs at the Fulton County Animal Services facility in Atlanta, Ga., went viral on the internet.
The photo captures two impounded pit bulls, named "Kyra and Delaware," comforting one another on a dog bed inside of their kennel run. Though the image reached thousands of people, after all of this time, not one person has followed through to offer the dogs a home.
On July 3, HLNTV published a story about the pair - at that time it was noted that the pair had already been without a home, living inside of the animal control facility, for three months. Today, the dogs, who once reached near "celebrity" status, are considered to be "urgent," and they desperately need to leave the crowded animal control facility.
Kyra, who is just over a year of age, is described by the animal control facility as:
"Cute little Kyra is just over a year old, and a very high energy and playful girl. She will be a fantastic walking or jogging companion. She weighs 36 lbs, is spayed, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative, microchipped and ready to go home today!"
Kyra's friend, Delaware, is also a young girl who is described as:
Cute little Delaware is only 8 months old and weighs 27 lbs. She is very playful, high energy and friendly. She is waiting on a wonderful person to come and adopt her. She is already spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. She can leave with an approved adopter today.
Please take a moment, once again, to network Kyra and Delaware's information. They are young, high energy dogs who need (and deserve) to be living with a family who can provide them with the playtime, structure, training and most of all...love.
