It Looked Like Hope Was Lost For These Pups In An Avalanche But Then They Were Saved

Mother Nature isn’t showing any mercy this winter to one Italian region.

For the last few weeks, the Abruzzo region of Italy has been plagued with large amounts of heavy snowfall as well as unusually powerful earthquakes. As a result of these earthly shakeups, the Hotel Rigopiano and the surrounding resort were the victims of an avalanche on January 18.

Prior to the avalanche, some areas of the resort were covered in nearly nine feet of snow. Among the rubble, rescue crews have been working diligently day and night to help find any and all survivors.

Nine trapped survivors were able to be safely removed from the rubble since last Wednesday’s natural disaster.
