Katelyn Mannion, Kim Reid, and Fiona Mc Clintock, the rescue team, were unfazed as lightning rumbled menacingly across the dark and clear sky.
They were aware that two terrified German shepherd sisters who were in need of assistance were out there. And they had no intention of stopping until they located them.
The team, who often help rescue abandoned animals around Fermanagh, Ireland, jumped into action as soon as they got a tip about the dogs. The search lasted three days, leading them through dense woods and farmland.
By day three, the team worried that the dogs might never be spotted.
“We were feeling a little deflated as we couldn’t get close to them, and we just wanted to bring them to safety,” Mannion told The Dodo.
Finally, they found the sisters cowering in a local farmer’s shed. At long last, the dogs were in sight.
“It was a very intense, overwhelming feeling of pure joy and excitement,” Mannion said. “We were still very concerned for their well-being, but we were just so thrilled to have them in a secured area. There were definitely a few tears.”
The canines were given the names Thora and Levina by the rescuers, and treatment for the sisters began right away. Little China Dog Rescue provided a rescue location, and Lost Paws NI volunteered to cover the cost of medical care. The fact that both businesses responded so quickly to provide assistance delighted the crew.
As a result, Mannion stated, “this relieved so much burden off of us, and we could just truly enjoy our time with kids.” It was nearly exhilarating! ”
Soon, the dogs began to look at humans in a new light.
“Once they were caught and given the suitable medication and treatment they needed, they started to show their own personalities a bit more,” Mannion said. “They went from running away from people to asking for more cuddles.”
The dogs have now gotten used to their foster homes and will stay there until they are adopted.
Although the girls’ narrative has a happy conclusion, the rescue crew is still puzzled as to where they came from.
Mannion stated, “We couldn’t ask for anything better. They are quite happy and aware of our affection for them.
