IDF soldiers not only protect the people of Israel - they also lend a hand when animals are in trouble. Writers at Israel21c tell us more about how a group of IDF soldiers rescued a litter of puppies from a flooded building.
Rescue dogs are the ones who usually come to the aid of people in need. In a heartwarming scenario in Israel this week, a group of IDF soldiers came to the assistance of a mother dog trying to rescue her 12 puppies from a flooded house.
The nail-biting video clip of the mother dog risking her life to save her pups was uploaded to Facebook by Israel’s Let the Animals Live association, which helps animals in distress. The organization put out a call for people to adopt the seven puppies that survived the ordeal.
The happy-sad scene caught on video took place at an IDF army base. The soldiers knew that their adopted stray dog had birthed a litter a few days before the storm. When rainwater began to pool under the building where the puppies were nestled, their mom couldn’t figure out how to save them.
That’s when the soldiers stepped in to help.
