Kona’s family left her behind when they moved away… months later, we were called in to help.

It's #GivingTuesday and we need YOUR help. We have all the love in the world to give, but the limiting factor is always funds... the more money we have, the more animals we can save. When many people donate a small amount, it adds up and it enables us to save these dogs from life of suffering... hunger, cold and too much fear to approach a human and ask for help. If you are able to help today, please join the Hope For Paws team and donate just $5 here: HopeForPaws.org Special thanks to our friends at Pal Rescue who fostered little Kona and found her such a beautiful home! They have many more amazing dogs up for adoption, so please check them out: PalRescue.org Please share this video on your social media and help us raise awareness and funds for 2018 Thank you so much :-) Eldad

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.

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
