“Hope For Paws” rescuer Lisa M. Ashe was one of the most nurturing and passionate animal activists out there. Sadly, she passed away after battling cancer for months.
When her fellow rescuers were at her funeral, they received a sudden rescue call about a litter of puppies dwelling inside a dangerous cave.
The rescuers immediately set out to save the puppies the moment the funeral was over.
When they arrived at the cave, they realized that it was actually a narrow hole beneath a rocky landmass that could collapse at any moment.
Moreover, the puppies were distrustful of humans, and they ran into the deepest corner of the cave when the rescuers approached.
Seeing the gravity of the situation, rescuer Eldad Hagar fearlessly plunged himself 18 feet inside the cave to reach the puppies.
One by one, he pulled out 8 shrieking puppies from the dark and suffocating cave. But when he went in for the runt puppy, the little one went missing.
In a desperate attempt to save the runt puppy, Eldad took a shovel and began digging to create another opening for the cave.
He finally saw the terrified runt puppy and completely buried himself in the soil to rescue him!

Thanks to this heroic rescue, all 9 puppies are now safe. Initially, the mama dog was untraceable. But later, she was also rescued.
The puppies have been named using each letter of Lisa’s full name to honor her memory. This was one of the most emotional rescues we’ve ever witnessed. Rest in peace, dear Lisa.
