In 2017, a large storm swept the Southern California area. Thunder, lightning, wind, and rain pummeled the area. Many called it the storm of the century, bringing torrential rains to the drought-stricken state. Those who could ran indoors for safety. One little dog, however, could not escape the violent weather.

This precious pup had been homeless for many years. Area residents took responsibility for feeding her as often as possible. When the storm hit, concerned citizens tried in vain to lure the dog to safety. She refused, and ran into a bush for cover from the raging winds.

In an effort to get help, residents called the animal rescue organization Hope for Paws to save the dog’s life. The Los Angeles based organization concentrates on helping distressed animals in all situations. Volunteer workers moved quickly to respond to the distress call.

Rescue workers battled through the storm-drenched streets for hours to make it to the dog’s reported location. They arrived in pitch-black darkness. Their efforts were hampered even more by the thick, burly bushes the dog used as her hiding spot.

After relentless searching, the dog was finally located. Using hands and tools, rescue workers fought through the dangerous tangle of plant life to reach the distressed pup. The rain and wind made it difficult to get a firm grip on the slippery foliage of the bushes she used as a hiding spot. As the rain continued to pour down, workers knew they had to act fast if the dog was going to make it.

Like most feral animals, this dog did not trust many humans. Despite the fact that these workers had come to rescue her, the dog would not come out of her hiding spot. In an effort to gain her trust, workers fed the hungry dog treats and bits of food. After a while, she allowed them to touch her. That’s when they discovered the secret she was willing to die to protect.

Rescue workers discovered the pup was protecting a litter of newborn puppies. Barely 2 days old, these precious babies would not make it through the storm without human help. Workers knew they had to act quickly to get the canine family to safety if they were all going to survive.

The workers from Hope for Paws needed to gain the mother’s trust before a rescue could happen. One volunteer gently placed a leash in the dog’s makeshift den. She sniffed it several times. Eventually she relaxed and no longer saw the humans as enemies trying to hurt her new family. That’s when the rescue efforts really began.

One by one, the workers gently lifted each puppy from the damp, shallow den. The mother dog gave each of her babies reassuring licks as they whimpered at the touch of unfamiliar hands. She knew these humans were there to help them, and allowed them to slowly lift each of her 8 babies out of the hole and into dry, warm safety.

Through the freezing rain and chilling winds, Hope for Paws workers lifted 8 puppies and their mother out of the bush covered den into their rescue van. Even through the wetness and discomfort, the workers were still able to smile because they knew they had done a good deed.

Once the canine family was safely removed from the elements, workers rushed them to the nearest veterinary office. There they received food, warm blankets to sleep on, and a thorough medical exam. Despite the fact that the storm had knocked out power to the clinic, the canine family still received the best care possible. The staff used flashlights to make sure the dogs received everything they needed.

While treating the pups, workers gave them names to celebrate their victory over the storm. The mama dog was given the name Rainbow because she appeared like a bright ray of hope in the middle of a fantastic storm. The babies were named Droplet, Stormy, Raindrop, Breezy, Misty, Bolt, Flash, and Thunder to document the conditions in which they came into the world.

Once she knew her babies were safe, Rainbow showed her gratitude by becoming a happy, playful, friendly pup. She licked the rescue workers’ hands lovingly to thank them for saving her little family. The team returned her affection with lots of cuddling and doggie kisses.

Finally, Rainbow and her 8 precious puppies could relax. Even as the storm continued to rage outside, Rainbow relaxed in comfort with her babies. With her own tummy full, she could feed her babies and enjoy the attention from rescue workers. She even had enough energy to play with the selection of toys they found at the animal shelter.

After six weeks, the happy, healthy family continued to gain strength. The puppies became furry balls of affection who love nothing more than to frolic in the sun with their mother. The stormy weather that brought them into the world did nothing to dampen their spirits!

The canine family is enjoying their time together in doggie foster care. When the pups are a bit older, the whole family will be available for adoption to good homes. Thanks to the Hope for Paws workers, these doggies became an inspiring story instead of a sad tragedy.

To call attention to the plight of homeless animals everywhere, rescue workers created a video of Rainbow’s ordeal. The video was uploaded to YouTube, where it quickly went viral. Within 3 weeks the video had been seen by over 3 million people around the world.

These happy pups were saved by rescue workers who valued the lives of animals as much as those of humans. Hopefully this story will inspire others to take action and help homeless or lost pets caught in violent weather or other natural disasters.
