When you have seen as many dog rescues as we have, you would think that, eventually, the magic fuzzy feeling that comes with seeing the happy ending would wear off. Well, even if you have seen 1,000 different rescues in your lifetime, this video is sure to give you chills.

This rescue of nine feral puppies comes from the epic team over at Hope for Paws, an organization based in Los Angeles that is dedicated to saving stray and homeless animals. 

When Hope for Paws got a call, right after the funeral of their dear friend, about a litter of puppies in need of help, they could think of no better way to commemorate their lost loved one than stepping into action. This particular rescue, however, would prove to be one of the most challenging yet.

The puppies, who were born to a feral mother who had effectively avoided all rescuers for the past five years, had wedged themselves into a cave and were very fearful of humans. Unwilling to just give up on these needy pups, Hope For Paw’s founder, Eldad Hagar literally dug his way into the cave to free the puppies.

You’ll have to watch the video yourself to believe the lengths these dedicated rescuers went to to help the puppies. But we will spoil it a bit and tell you they all get a happy ending!

If you’re interested in adopting one of these pups, check out The Dog Rescuers and The LoveJoy Foundation. To learn more about Hope for Paws and the amazing work they do, click here.
