Being in the rescue industry is full of heartbreaking experiences. It is so incredibly sad to see how many animals are left neglected and to fend for themselves. But every so often, there is a little bit of hope – especially when there is a happy ending involved.
One rescue, Hope For Paws, had gotten a call to help a dog that had been seen around a shipping yard. The call was extra urgent, as it had been observed that the dog in question had recently given birth to a litter of puppies.
Hope For Paws knew that they also had to be on the lookout for the puppies, and they had to be the top priority.
However, it wasn’t an easy rescue mission. Halfway through, they were interrupted by a security guard who didn’t want them rescuing the dogs – he didn’t want them being taken away from the shipping yard.
Thankfully, they were able to convince him to see the importance of rescuing the little canine family from the shipping yard, especially since the supervisor of the shipping yard was the one to ask the rescue to come in the first place.

Eventually, the security guard relented and Paws For Hope were able to rescue the pups. A few of them were easy to get to, but a few of the others hid from the rescuers. Eventually, they were able to get all of them – including the mama.
The little family was then transported to LA Animal Rescue for a medical evaluation before going to a foster home.
They were all given new names to fit with their new start: Mama Agnus, Odis, Marge, and Forest. Eventually, the shelter was able to get them each a forever home.
