Dogs are ready 24/7 to protect us or rescue us even if it means risking their own lives. Such is the loyalty of dogs, and their unconditional love for humankind. Lucky for them, there are still men and women out there who are ready to do the same for them when the situation arises.
The Kilauea volcano in the island of Hawaii is the most active volcano out of all that are found in the Hawaiian islands. In fact, it is ranked as the most active volcano in the world. Residents in the island are always aware and ready to skip town whenever there is volcanic activity.
This is exactly what Carol Hosley did. She lives in the danger area, and she already knows the drill. Upon receiving notification that they needed to evacuate, Carol went to work and packed up their belongings. Unfortunately, when two male rescuers showed up in their home, her two dogs, Little Dude, and Brus ran away.
Bad timing for two scared pups to get lost in the woods. Around a dozen volcanic fissures had opened up in the Leilani Estates subdivision which was where Carol and the dogs reside. Carol was running out of options and running out of time as she needed to evacuate as soon as possible.
Carol adopted the two pups from the local animal rescue group, Aloha Ilio Rescue, and the rescue group volunteered to help find the two dogs. They have been searching for days, and they were already fearing for the worst. After ten days, they found them!
It turns out they were stuck behind a fence somewhere, and the two pups could not find their way around as they were surrounded by another “fence” of cooled lava. The rescuers crawled through grass and hopped over the fence to finally get to the two poor dogs who were visibly shaken and probably hungry.
