A starving dog living by the freeway made it really hard for us to save her life. Please share.

  • Published: 20 April 2019
  • On the first day when I saw this dog by the freeway, I had no chance against her... she just bolted and disappeared! It took her two days to come back to the same location and then I brought reinforcements - I brought Loreta with me :-)

    This video is cool because the main part of it was filmed with TWO cameras - it created a neat effect.

    Loreta named her Hanako in memory of her own dog, Coco Hanako who recently passed away. If you will watch until the end you will see the cute little poodle she rescued from the shelter.

    Rescues like this are dangerous because of their proximity to the freeway, they are dangerous to us because we could have gotten seriously hurt, and I am so happy it all worked out so well.

    After receiving medical care, our friends at L.A. Animal Rescue invited Hanako to be in their foster home and they helped her so much and then found her an amazing forever home!

    You can now follow Hanako (now renamed Luna) on Instagram here: instagram.com/withlove.luna/

    If you enjoy our rescue video, I would LOVE it if you would join our Hope For Paws team with a small donation here: HopeForPaws.org

    Your donation will send us on the next rescue mission and will help us change the lives of many animals.

    Thank you so much,

    She looks just like a dog my family had when I was a child, she was a german shepherd and doberman mix.

        These people remind me of my mom who rescued animals and ran a shelter for 25 years. She had to undergo the rabies series like six times because she would often get torn up trying to catch scared animals. She was all in like these folks. Watching these videos make me miss her and wish I had appreciated what she did more. She was one of a kind.

Or getting lost again . Every time i watch rescue videos I pray that it is really the happy ending for the rest of their lives . ❤️ GOD BLESS HOPE FOR PAWS!
