Animal Aid's rescue team had no idea what they were up against when they responded to a call about puppies stuck in tar.
When the team arrived on the scene, what they saw was horrifying. Three tiny puppies were hopelessly encased in a pool of hardened tar. Completely immobile, the babies were crying for help. The situation was desperate, and there wasn't a minute to spare.
Immediately, the team realized they would not be able to extract the little puppies on-site. Rather, they would have to take the entire pool of tar with the puppies stuck in it back to the Animal Aid shelter.
Eventually, the rescue team was able to remove the tar pit from the ground, and the puppies were rushed back to the shelter. There, rescue workers gave the exhausted and dehydrated puppies some much-needed water and immediately applied oil to soften the tar.
Over the next three days, the poor puppies received warm bath after bath. They had endured such trauma, it was unclear if they'd survive. Fortunately, the will to live won out, and all three puppies miraculously survived the ordeal. The Animal Aid team was even able to locate their mother and brought her back to the shelter to reunite her with her babies.
Thanks to Animal Aid Unlimited, and this incredible rescue, these three little ones are looking forward to a much brighter future. They and their mama will live out their days at the Animal Aid shelter in the company of other rescued animals.
