Hana the German shepherd was out for a hike with her dad one day when suddenly the heat became too much for her, and she collapsed from heat exhaustion, unable to move at all. She and her dad were pretty far up Snow Lake Trail in Washington, and he was worried help wouldn’t reach them in time — but luckily, he called the right people.
Washington State Animal Response Team (WASART) got the call about Hana and immediately sprang into action. They gathered together a small team of rescuers and all of the equipment they would need, drove to the bottom of the mountain and began the long hike up the trail. As they went, they passed several hikers who told them about the dog, her head resting on her dad’s jacket, waiting for help to arrive.
