COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - A few newborn puppies are now safe thanks to two deputies from Richland County.

Officials said a homeowner called the Richland County Sheriff’s Department after efforts to rescue the puppies from underneath a residential home by animal control and fire department failed.

Deputies Destiny Hamlin and Deputy Brandon Hayes, crawled beneath the house and carefully rescued the five tiny puppies. The mother dog was removed from the same house earlier in the week by animal control according to officials.

The mother will soon be reunited with her pups at a local animal shelter.
