Dogs would do anything for us, so it’s only fair that we’ll do anything for them, too.
Recently, a pup named Daisy collapsed while on a hike in the mountains.
Daisy had scaled England’s highest mountain peak, Scafell Pike, together with her family and was on her way back down when she suddenly collapsed.
Luckily, a group of dedicated mountain rescuers soon came to her aid.
The Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team is a team of volunteers who are dedicated to helping people who get into trouble in the Wester Fell’s area of the Lake District.
They receive and respond to over a hundred calls for help each year and are active 24/7 all year round.
Though the rescue team normally rescues humans, they didn’t hesitate to rush up the mountain when they heard about Daisy.
To them, it didn’t matter that Daisy was a pup; she needed help and they would do everything they could to help her.
A team of rescuers headed up the mountain to bring Daisy to safety, and when they arrived at the scene, they made sure to carefully introduce themselves to the scared pup as not to cause her any further distress.
After making sure that Daisy understood that they were there to help, the team was able to examine her and give her something to ease her pain.
They then began the process of convincing Daisy to let them secure her to the stretcher, and also the process of figuring out how, exactly, they would go about securing a dog to a stretcher that was designed to hold a human.
Eventually, they figured it out and managed to get Daisy safely and comfortably loaded onto the stretcher.
They then carefully carried the pup down the mountain, and once down, Daisy’s family was able to get her the help she needed.
Now, Daisy is back in tip-top shape and her family is so grateful to the amazing Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team for saving their sweet little girl’s life.
It’s heartwarming to see people truly valuing the life of animals.
