His homeless owner disappeared one day and he didn't trust anyone!!!
Garfield spent his days at the park, alone and confused because he didn't know where did his owner disappear. Luckily, we got a call on the #HopeForPaws emergency line.
Loreta Frankonyte and I headed out, and after a long search for him, one of the construction workers who have been feeding him pointed me in his direction. At the point I was alone, so I waited for Loreta to meet up with me. The plan was for her to close the gate in the far end of that dead-end street, and I would cover the width of the street with my snappy snare. The rest of the story is in this video :-)

We really don't want to spend any time on fundraising... we prefer being out there, with the animals and getting them to the hospital so they won't have to spend another night outside. Please don't think "$5 is insignificant, so why bother?"... it's just not true - I've been doing this for many years and it's just the best when more and more people help us grow.
Garfield needs your help one more time with sharing his video because we now need to find him a loving forever home! Please share his video with family and friends and help us complete this amazing circle!
Our friends at Balooja's Foundation did an incredible work with getting him out of his shell and it's just amazing to see the difference in him.

    Riding in style! I'd give you a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ GOOGLE review too! Thank you and your team for all you do for these animals.💖 HFP fans... please don't overlook the other species rescues, they're amazing. If you haven't seen the racoon rescue you're missing out. I think its one of the best!

    It's so helpful to potential adopters to know that a dog is going to be fine with cats. My ex and I adopted our dog Maggie because we knew she loved cats (her elderly owner developed dementia and her carers couldn't look after all the animals too). Our youngest cat would sneak in beside and curl up with her, which sometimes annoyed her but she'd get up and move away rather than become aggressive. We suspected she was afraid of squashing him! RIP sweet Maggie Dog, you were a beautiful and gentle wee gem.

    After abandonment several timrs it's getting harder to develop and maintain trust. The saddest thing about the times we are in is how insensitive and outright cruel ppl can be. Animals don't hurt other animals. Humans do and it hurts ppl but totally confuses critters because they cannot begin to fathom why ppl would hurt them.
