After Collapsing In A Family's Yard, Exhausted Puppy Gets A Second Chance At Life3m32s

After Collapsing In A Family's Yard, Exhausted Puppy Gets A Second Chance At Life

When a dirty little pooch collapsed in a Los Angeles family back yard, they thought the pup was looking to catch a break. But when the pup didn’t move for hours, the people knew that something is wrong and they knew exactly who to call - Eldad Hagar and his team at Hope For Paws. When the rescuers came, the woman tells Edgar and his colleague Loreta Frankonyte that the dog’s front paw looks broken and that it wouldn’t move after collapsing on a carpeted doormat. Loreta tried to touch and pet the injured doggie, but it jumped in fear and pain. Still, it wouldn’t move, a sure sign that it is injured. “It’s okay” were the words whispered to the injured pup, as the two nice people were trying to comfort the dog and get him to trust them. They called him Milo. He wouldn’t let them pick him up, so Eldad improvised a gurney out of a blanket to get him in their car and straight to the hospital. Vet determined that Milo had been bitten by some other dog and with his dirty matted fur, it was only a matter of time before his leg got infected and swollen the way it did. They managed to drain the puss from the wound, but his leg would never be the same again. That didn’t stop sweet Milo to show his true, playful and lovable nature, which got him adopted with lightning speed. He got lucky to collapse where he did, now thriving in his new life. Please help us save more dogs like Milo and make a small donation: http://www.HopeForPaws.org Thank you Cause for SB Paws for finding him such an amazing home! They have many more beautiful dogs for adoption, so please check them out here: http://www.CauseForSBpaws.org

Rescuers Called To Save A Mother That Had Just Given Birth 3m33s

Rescuers Called To Save A Mother That Had Just Given Birth

Summer has been living on the streets of Los Angeles for quite some time. Members of the community provided her with food, but one day she was left pregnant. Those same members were the ones who called in for some assistance, because the didn’t want Summer’s babies to live the same fate. “She lived on the streets for a long time; she was fed by neighbors who found her a delight and who loved having her around. However, she also had babies in the bushes that needed help. The people reached out to us so that the babies and the mother could live in better and healthier conditions”, said Eldad Hagar, founder of Hope For Paws. Summer had just given birth to her six puppies, so she stayed quietly in a bush, tending to her babies. When the rescuers finally arrived, they were met by a happy mother, who seemed to know that these people were here to help her tiny family. Summer even allowed the human to get close to her puppies, a trait not typical for new mothers. The rescuers immediately took Summer and her puppies to a vet in order to get them checked out, and they found out that all was well with each of them. After thoroughly examining her, Hagar and his colleagues determined that Summer was most likely a Berger Picard; a breed that is too rare to be found living in the streets. Summer and all her puppies were placed into foster care, where they can play and grow until the puppies are old enough to be adopted. Please help us save more dogs and donate $5: http://www.HopeForPaws.org If you can't donate, please SHARE this video and help us find this beautiful family loving forever homes.

Lost Pit Bull Reunited With Owners After Running Away From Home Scared Of Fireworks3m58s

Lost Pit Bull Reunited With Owners After Running Away From Home Scared Of Fireworks

Dog owners should be aware that their beloved pets also have their fears! Every year thousands of pets go missing because of fireworks, and most will never be reunited with their families again. Even firecrackers will make the most well-adjusted loving pet become terrified enough to run away. Lisa Arturo called Hope For Paws after noticing that a lost Pit Bull was hiding under her car. These professional rescuers used plastic fencing around the car in order to secure the dog from running away. First, the dog growled at them because he was so afraid and didn’t know that they are here to rescue him. Eldad from Hope For Paws fed the Pit Bull with a hot-dog just to make him feel more comfortable and then used a special leash and slowly led him out of his hiding spot. Fearing for his safety, Eldad used a towel to pet the dog and realized that he quickly relaxed and seemed to be enjoying the affection he was receiving. When they scanned him, they discovered he had a registered microchip inserted and soon found the owner. Owner Joanna was so relieved to hear that Boy was found and was safe and sound. Her family was having a party and the dog got out because he got scared of the fireworks. They were very surprised because he usually never leaves the house. When Boy was reunited with his owners, he was crying like a baby, waving his tail and jumping with joy. He is part of the family and couldn’t wait to go home to them. They are lucky to be reunited again! Please keep your pets indoors where they are safe, and make sure that your pet has a collar with a name tag and your phone number on it. Please support our efforts by making a $5 donation today: http://www.HopeForPaws.org SHARING our videos is so important for raising awareness! So many animals will run away from home this weekend, so many will get hit by cars, so many will never find their way home - PLEASE keep your pets safe - indoors, with a collar, a name tag and a registered microchip. Thanks, Eldad

Homeless Pit Bull Gives Birth In A Den During A Massive Rainstorm 12m19s

Homeless Pit Bull Gives Birth In A Den During A Massive Rainstorm

During the worst storm of the year in Southern California, Hope For Paws received an urgent call about a homeless Pit Bull who had just given birth 48 hours ago. So they got in the car and drove 3.5 hours to find her. Luckily, they were able to get the mama and all of her eight puppies to safety. Neighbors had been trying to save this stray Pit Bull for the past 3 months, but she just kept running away from them. However, when this rescue team approached her, she didn’t run away perhaps because her instinct to stay with her pups was too strong. In order to save her and her puppies , the rescue team had to break through the bushes and crawl into her den. The dog was clearly scared and unsure of what was going on, but Hope for Paws reassured her there was nothing to worry about. First, they befriended her by feeding her and petting her, while speaking very softly to her and allowing her to take her time. After a while, they gently put a leash on her, so she couldn’t run away. In fact, she was determined to stay with her puppies. The rescuers started to take the babies first, by allowing her to lick each of them before they were taken from her. After the puppies were safe, they had to get the mom out of the den and put her in a cage. They reunited the puppies with their mama and the mom. It turns there were eight puppies! They named the mom Rainbow and the babies Thunder, Breezy, Misty, Raindrop, Flash, Bolt, Stormy and Droplet, which are all water and storm themed. How fitting! If you’d like to adopt one of the pups or Rainbow, visit http://www.TheLittleRedDog.com. Also, please consider donating to Hope for Paws and help us save more lives: http://www.HopeForPaws.org

Animal Rescuers Climb 18 Feet Down A Cave To Rescue A Litter Of Puppies16m28s

Animal Rescuers Climb 18 Feet Down A Cave To Rescue A Litter Of Puppies

Animals depend on human kindness and it is our sacred duty to keep them safe and put them out of harm's way. Puppies, being as fragile as they are, especially depend on our help. These little puppers were stuck 18 feet into the earth, but luckily for them, people with kind hearts managed to rescue them. The mission wasn't easy and not everyone would have bothered, but it's an amazing feeling just to know that you've helped a helpless creature. Kindness sparks kindness in others, so hopefully this will get at least one person to do something kind to continue the chain. This video is in memory of our dear friend and rescuer: Lisa M Ashe. Eldad and his team were called to rescue a litter of young puppies that have been living in a hole in the ground with their mother. The puppies weren’t too eager to trust the humans, so removing and taking them to safety was not a simple challenge. The litter of nine puppies, along with their mother, was rescued one by one from the dark and wet dwelling they were hiding in and each was given a name starting with the letters in Lisa’s name. The five boys and four girls are doing splendidly and are ready for their forever homes. Please share this video and help us save more lives: http://www.HopeForPaws.org
