BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Volunteers worked through the night to rescue a lost dog in Whatcom County over the weekend.

The husky, named Azara, was missing for a week in the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest.

Her family finally found her Saturday at the base of a waterfall on the Welcome Pass trail. Michaela Eves with the Washington State Animal Response Team says their volunteers had to hike through some tough terrain to get to the dog.

 

She says they make sure that human lives aren’t lost trying to save pets and livestock.

 

The rescue team included members from Summit-to-Sound Search and Rescue. They began the rescue at 2:30 Saturday afternoon and didn’t get back home until 6:00 Sunday morning.

Azara was hypothermic and exhausted, but otherwise okay.
