Almost everyone loves puppies. Sure, there are a lot of people who prefer cats over dogs, or adore horses and other large animals, but we can all agree that puppies are sweet creatures who deserve our love and protection.
That’s why it’s so heartbreaking anytime we see tiny pups trapped in precarious situations.
When dogs are abandoned or lost, they seek comfort and safety. Sometimes, they accidentally end up in dangerous places.
A sweet little pup who was just trying to stay alive wound up in a deep drainpipe beneath a sewer grate. She was too small to climb back out, so all she could do was whine and hope for help to come.
Luckily, someone heard her cries and contacted an animal shelter. After spending over 24 hours in the drainpipe, the puppy was finally free — and with people who could properly care for her.

She fell through a small opening and down 4 feet into a pipe that led to an even deeper drop-off.
Too small to climb back out, her only option was to wait for help or starve.
The public followed all proper channels of reporting the pup to the city’s animal control, but at 6 pm on Friday evening, the dog had been in the culvert for 24 hours with no solution; so along with volunteers, we accepted the challenge of working to rescue her.
Using time, brainpower, and heavy machinery, the top of the drain was finally removed, and one of our employees bravely climbed into the pipe (head first) to save her.
Luckily, no pipes were damaged and no lives lost.
We could not have done this alone. Thank you to the Coahoma Tire staff, Bill Olson, our staff and volunteers for lending equipment and expertise to this dire situation.
This is NOT a normal circumstance for us! How thrilled we are for this puppy’s future!
Everyone who saw the story loved the volunteers’ and employees’ hard work and dedication.
