A terrified dog, tethered to a chain and trapped beneath a collapsed shed, was rescued on September 1. The Louisiana SPCA posted photos of the trapped dog, and recounted the situation, and rescue effort.
The animal welfare agency writes:
Yesterday our team and Humane Rescue Alliance officers who volunteered to help here after Hurricane Ida were able to make an amazing rescue! While we were out in the field responding to calls of abandoned animals a resident flagged us down and led us to a dog trapped underneath a collapsed shed!
Our teams rushed to the scene, where they found a scared dog chained inside of the shed and tangled under the debris.
The rescue teams believes that the dog had been trapped beneath the shed since Hurricane Ida hit the area on Sunday. Amazingly, despite being trapped beneath the shed, the dog escaped injury – the shelter staff writes:
We carefully lifted the shed enough so we could guide the dog out from underneath and free him from the chain. Thankfully, and perhaps miraculously, the dog was not injured.
The neighbor, who alerted the rescuers to the dog’s presence, helped name the dog Bubbles. Once freed, the pup was extremely affectionate. The animal welfare agency said:
Bubbles was super friendly and sweet and became almost immediately affectionate toward his rescuers. Bubbles was transported to our shelter in Algiers to cool off and recover while we work to locate his owners.
Bubbles is one of many pets left stranded by the hurricane. Anyone hoping to support the Louisiana SPCA can do so by making a donation to them on their Facebook page.
