Four dogs were abandoned by their owners in the Mojave Desert. With temperatures reaching 105 degrees Fahrenheit and two of the dogs suffering from life-threatening infections, rescuers had to get on their quads and move quickly to give them a chance at survival.
Why anyone would go dump their own pets in the desert rather than a shelter is beyond my ability to comprehend, but all four of them — Sunna, Tanami, Sahara, and Moses — are now safe and awaiting forever homes through Doggy Smiles Rescue.
Grab some popcorn, because at 20 minutes long, this is indeed an epic rescue video. But with a lot of patience and know-how, Hope for Paws was able to round up the doggie quartet and get them to a cooler, comfortable environment and veterinary care they needed. You can see more photos and details from the rescue on Flickr.
