Three rottweiler mix dogs were spotted in an industrial park in Bergen, New Jersey, during the recent icy cold weather. The mother and two puppies were trying to stay warm on a filthy blanket. When police could not round up the dogs, North Bergen High School athletes volunteered to go out of New Year's Eve and help.

The dogs had been outside for a couple of days, and took 12 hours to finally catch them. Police say the pups were "really nervous" when taken to an animal shelter, but now they are fine. "It's very impressive that all these high schoolers came together and took the time to do this," said Kaley Nugent of St. Hubert's Animal Center.
