Rescuer has a panic attack during a rescue - I had to get her out!
I didn't know Loreta was claustrophobic and only on the drive back I learned more about it. She was extremely brave to go back down there and help accomplish the mission and the result is amazing!
If you haven't made a donation yet to Hope For Paws, I really hope you will join us today. Since COVID-19 started, we received so many calls for help with wild animals and without us, these ducklings and so many others would have been dead by now. It will take 2 minutes of your time, and with $5 a month (or 17 cents a day), you can help us save even more lives:
There is literally NOTHING GOOD you can buy for 17 cents, and here you can do it EVERY DAY! ❤️

    Loreta is my Hero. She went back down there even if she was scared. She did it for the ducklings. Please give her a big hug from all of us!

    I know how loreta felt in that moment, and it's not fun. Having a panic attack of any sort is bad, but coming from a phobia is worse. This hit me in the feels, I would have bailed, but loreta showed courage for stray ducklings that were going deeper into a sewer. That right there, is a true hero and animal lover👏✊❤

    Seriously do not like this guys attitude. He said he was in the military, so why did he not stop what he was doing and help his comrade??? Loretta, you are a strong trooper, a fighter, a survivor, an inspiration, and a true hero. You mental strength is incredible.

  • L-c_

    It's amazing to see how Loreta was fighting her anxiety just to save those babies She deserves a huge respect ❤️❤️

    Between Loretta's anxiety and her wanting to save the ducklings must have drained every ounce of energy in her, she is so awesome!

    Eldad, what you do is amazing but you need to listen to what other people say. Loretta told you twice she was claustrophobic and you totally ignored her. She is the real hero of this rescue but honestly your attitude in this video disappointed me. I understand you can become very focused on the animals/birds you are rescuing, please remember that other humans get involved too.

    I thought Loreta was a hero before just with regular rescues, now she's a superhero! Counting was a great idea. That and the ducks gave you something to focus on during your traumatic ordeal.

  • Becca Matlock

    Loreta is so incredible for powering through this. I don’t think I could’ve done it. I’m glad she did the counting, that really helps to ground people during panic attacks. Fireworks are terrible for animals and for our environment. Please find an alternate way to celebrate!

    Loretta, you are such a brave and amazing woman. I was having my own panic attack just watching you be so brave in that gross sewer. Thank you for what you do, many many years from now, when you and Eldad cross the pearly gates, think of all the thankful, loving and sweet animals that will be waiting for you and giving back all the love you have shown them. Loretta, you give me strength in dealing with the things in life that frighten me, you and Eldad have so much love for each other, all the animals and your life’s work. Thank you! You both are amazing with compassionate hearts and love for all and every animal. May you both continue to be safe and protected through your amazing journeys of rescues! 🙏🏻 Thank you

    People really should be more considerate when they do fireworks. A lot of veterans, PTSD patients as well as all the animals get extremely affected by the sound. My neighbor's dog got scared and jumped out of the house when the neighbor's daughter was coming into the house; and got hit by a car and died on July 4th. My dog gets an anxiety attack which lasts for months.

  • casper poggers

    i’ve had anxiety/panic attacks myself and a good way, at least for me, to fight through it is to focus on something else, like your breathing, counting or other comforting sounds like music or someone’s voice. loreta did an amazing job here!
