WATCH: The Most Heartwarmimg Lifeboat Rescue Ever

Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (34)

Quila was in a tight spot. On a stormy afternoon in Norfolk, just days before Christmas, this friendly Labrador was swept out to sea and left stranded on a slippery rock, surrounded by water – as her distressed guardians watched in horror.

This is what happened next:

What stands out in the video are the gentleness and care that the rescuers from Happisburgh Lifeboat Crew show to Quila, who was probably experiencing one of the most terrifying moments of her life. After they lift her into the boat, she nestles her head against the shoulder of a crew member who is comforting her – just grateful to be in safe hands. For the courage and determination of the lifeboat crew and to recognise their kindness, we have given them a Hero to Animals Award! Here are some of them with Quila, safe and sound, back on dry land:

Heroes

We’d like to say thanks to these heroes for putting their safety on the line in order to protect all residents in their area, whether on two legs or four!
