Thanks to the Louisiana SPCA and the Humane Rescue Alliance, Bubbles the dog was rescued from underneath a collapsed shed, chained up and left without any food or water.
The Humane Rescue Alliance dispatched four rescuers to search for pets in need after Hurricane Ida struck the Orleans Parish. While the team had been responding to calls of abandoned animals, a resident flagged volunteers down and led them to a dog trapped under a collapsed shed. The frightened dog had been chained inside in the sweltering heat with no food or water since the storm struck three days earlier.
“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 concerned neighbor helped us name this brave pup Bubbles, and we think it’s the perfect name. Once freed from the shed, 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.”SPCA Louisiana
