The Hope for Paws rescue organization has gained a large following on YouTube for their dramatic animal rescues.
One recent rescue was likely one of the trickiest yet, involving an entire litter of puppies, abandoned by their mother, who had never encountered humans before — and were trapped in the back of a small, cramped 18-foot cave.
Rescuer Eldad Hagar and the rest of the Hope for Paws crew tried tempting the puppies out with food, but the puppies were too scared.
After a few more attempts to lure the puppies out, the rescuers decided they had to go to them. They crawled 18 feet into the ground and, one by one, pulled the terrified animals out.
