Puppies trapped for hours in rock-solid tar rescued

 In Blog, Rescue Stories

Three tiny angels were trapped in hardened tar. They were so completely stuck, they couldn’t move a muscle. It looked like they’d been engulfed for hours, and one little baby’s mouth was even stuck open. Neighbors had heard their heart-wrenching cries for help and had called Animal Aid.

Prying them loose was impossible for the tense rescue team, so we had to cut the tar loose from the rocks below and bring the puppies and the tar and gravel they were stuck in back to the hospital. Determined volunteers and staff spent hours to soften the tar with oil and dishsoap, with time out only to plant kisses on the puppies’ noses. Multiple warm baths later…and wow. For babies who had been on the brink of death, this is what happiness looks like.

Please donate to save street animals in the most desperate need.

    I admire you people SO much; you risk your own lives over and over to help animals. And you work miracles every day. Those little puppies trapped in a pool of hardened tar was so terrible, yet you saved them with your patience, care, and love (and a lot of cleaning). Bless all of you – you are such heroes.

    This bought tears into my eyes more than some of the other videos. It’s so heartbreaking to see the little puppers cry in pain and fear. But it’s so heartwarming to see that someone took control of the situation by calling Animal Aid , an organization which surprises me with every rescue they undertake. It’s great to see that the responders were able to save the pups and the pups getting the love and care they deserve.
