The cave was dark and narrow, but he didn’t care. It could collapse at any moment, but he didn’t give up. In fact, he went to great lengths to dig a deeper tunnel so he could reach all 9 frightened puppies inside.
When Hope For Paws receives a call that a pack of puppies are in dire need of rescue from a scary situation, dog lover and rescuer Eldad is ready to do whatever it takes to bring the sweet angels back. to a safe place.
When rescuers When they first arrived on the scene and discovered the dark, narrow cave where the puppies were hiding, they chose to use the classic tactic of “seduce with a burger”.
Using a tasty, meaty treat can lure hungry baby mice out of their hiding places and can help frightened animals that those who have come are trustworthy.
At first it worked, and rescuers six tiny faces can be seen peeking out from the small opening in the cave. They were even able to feed a few and safely remove one of the pups. But then something startled the pups sticking their paws out, and it made them crawl deeper into the cave.
After showing a lot of patience and trying a “come and get the burgers” turn, it became clear that these pups might not be ready to roam alone.
Eldad knew that the only way to save these puppies was if he climbed into the cave himself.
In the video that we share below, you can see him lying on his stomach holding a flashlight and gently setting a trap. Little by little, he leaned forward as far as he could into the cave. However, he was still quite far from where a few puppies were gathered.
Luckily, he had his trap to the rescue, and he was able to reach and pull out three petrified puppies.
While watching the footage, it became clear that these puppies were extremely scared. Not only do they run away as far as possible, but they are also easily startled and immediately cry out when rescuers try to comfort them. It’s heartbreaking to hear their cries, but it’s also heartwarming to know that they’ll soon have a belly and be loved.
As Eldad continued to search for the remaining baby mice, he realized that they had used a narrow exit to get deeper into the burrow. There was no way he could reach them from the original entrance. So he calculated where the rest of the puppies would be and started digging a whole new tunnel to get them away.
They have to be extremely careful with their digging because they don’t want the newly created tunnel to get stuck.
When he was finally able to climb in and reach the other baby mice, he slithered his head around and grabbed them. He’s actually so deep in the ground that he needs two other rescuers from his team to pull him out with his feet. After rescuing one of the puppies this way, he climbed in and did it twice more.
After unpacking the last three, he went back inside just to make sure no one was left behind. But he actually found one puppy at last, and used traps to get him out.
He saved nine beautiful puppies!

Eldad and his team have faced the unthinkable, and we’re delighted that these sweet baby mice are now happy and safe.
