Jackson County Animal Services worked with Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue to bring the dogs from the location, which was covered in a large amount of snow.

With the help of a Snowcat, a vehicle designed for use in snow, the dogs were secured and brought to the county animal shelter in order to be reunited with their owner, according to a Facebook post by Jackson County Animal Services later shared by the County Sheriff’s Office on its own page.
