Watch the Incredible Rescue of a Homeless, Pregnant Dog

When Rescue From the Hart—a Los Angeles-based non-profit whose mission is to save animals—came across Bailey, she was pregnant, scared, and living in terrible conditions under a shopping cart.

After gaining her trust, Annie Hart and her team of animal rescuers brought the sweet dog into a caring and safe environment where she could welcome her puppies into the world.

Weeks after her rescue, Bailey successfully gave birth to four females and one male, which Rescue From the Hart lovingly named, the Bailey Bunch.

You can watch the incredible journey, from Bailey’s heartbreaking life on the streets to her awe-inspiring recovery as a playful, healthy mama to five adorable pups.

The video even shows an uplifting new beginning for Bailey and all of her babies—they all found loving forever homes. Get ready to happy cry.
