Eldad Hagar, the founder of Hope For Paws , a non-profit animal rescue in CA, never thought he would be digging into the earth on the day of his good friend and fellow rescuer's funeral. However, when he received an urgent call about a rescue that needed to happen as soon as possible that is just what he did!
After meeting up with other rescuers at the location, they found at least six feral puppies in a cave. The rescue that took place is truly astonishing! The rescuers tried to lure the pups out with pieces of meat, and successfully retrieved one, but shortly after something spooked the others and they went deeper into the cave.
After the rescue of a couple more pups, the others went through a tunnel at the back of the cave making the rescue that much more difficult and dangerous. They determined where about the pups were and Eldad began to dig 18 feet into the earth for the treasure and that treasure was small, scared and pretty resistant to being rescued. Remember, these puppies had never been touched by humans before and this was quite frightening for them.
Do you see the puppy silhouette? This is a shot of the very last puppy right before it was rescued.
I don't want to give you too many details about this amazing rescue, because you really do need to see it for yourself to understand the lengths these awesome rescuers went through to save these dear homeless puppies. I promise it does have a happy ending!
