Rescuers in Russia jumped at the chance to save lives when they heard about four puppies trapped in a tar pit.
They knew the rescue wasn’t going to be easy, but they were up to the task.
Sadly, when they arrived on the scene, one of the puppies had already passed away. They knew they were trying to beat the clock and set to work.
In the footage below, you can see them chipping away at the sludge stuck to the little ones’ fur. Even when they’re removed from the pit, the rescuers still have trouble cleaning them completely.
But little by little, the puppies learn to trust the vets and their caretakers.
By the time they’re totally clean, they look like totally different puppies!
It’s not clear how the animals ended up in the tar pit to begin with. Usually, the strong, toxic smell deters animals, so it’s possible that the poor pups were dumped there and left to die.
The dogs now live with an animal activist — but only two will be up for adoption, as she decided to keep one of the adorable animals for herself! Surely, someone will give them the love and care they need in no time.
Please SHARE if it warmed your heart to see these puppies happy and healthy after such a harrowing experience!
