Earlier this year, in southern California, they received one of the worst storms they had seen in a while. But that didn’t stop the Hope For Paws foundation from going out to save animals in trouble. In fact, it made them want to do it even more. And because of that, they knew exactly what to do in this situation.

According to their source, this dog had been homeless for a very long time. People had tried to rescue the poor animal, and give her some food and water, but she always ran away, not allowing anyone to get too close.

When the rescuers got there, it was dark out, and pouring down rain. And it really didn’t help that she was hiding in a thick bush. But they had to break through the bush, and then get into her den, where he was able to give her some help.

Eldad Hagar was able to win her trust, and give her some food, which she happily took. But it wasn’t until he reached out to touch her, that he noticed what she was hiding.

There, underneath her, were a litter of puppies, which she was guarding against the storm above. This rescue mission got even more serious after seeing that. They knew that it was super important to gain her trust and get her and her pups to safety.

Hagar began lifting each puppy out from the den, and the mother gave each one a reassuring lick, letting them know that everything was going to be alright. And her 8 pups were safe, and so was she.

They named the dog Rainbow, due to the stormy weather. They then proceeded to name her puppies as well, with the names, Thunder, Breezy, Misty, Raindrop, Flash, Bolt, Stormy and Droplet. And luckily, they are all happy and heathy! We are just so thankful that these precious animals were saved!
