    A group of rescuers from “Hope for Paws” were at a funeral for their friend Lisa M. Ashe when they got a call about puppies trapped in a cave. They didn’t hesitate for a minute and rushed over to their location to save the dogs.

    When they reached the cave, they saw 9 scared puppies, with no sign of their mother

    "It was clear that if we make any move towards them, they run across the railroad tracks and disappear," Rescuer Eldad Hagar told The Dodo.

    The starving puppies did came out to eat the food that they were given, but were still wary of the humans. When one of the rescuers got hold of one of the puppies, the rest of them scattered back deep into the cave.

    Rescuers had no choice but to try and get in after them. The entrance to the cave was incredibly tiny, but Hagar wasn't about to give up without a fight.

    He dug himself some space and then slid into the tight, dark entrance, hoping the puppies weren't too far in for him to grab. Hagar managed to pull out three terrified little puppies who cried and cried during the entire rescue operation

    Once those three had been secured, Hagar went back in to try and find the rest - only to discover that they were much too deep for him to reach. Determined not to leave anyone behind, Hagar found a shovel - and began to dig further in. 18 feet in.

    Finally, Hagar had dug into the cave all he could and started pulling the puppies, one by one. The process was long and difficult, involving a lot of blind grabbing and tiny puppy screams ...

    The puppies were cleaned up and split up into two different foster homes, where they're now thriving, much to everyone's shock and delight.
