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

    What a great success story! Luna looks so grateful and happy to be loved and get meals every day, Bless you both for saving her. Loretta has a great way with scared dogs. Her laughter and soft voice reassures them and you can see the dog starting to trust her on the leash. Eldad, you have some great team mates! Bravo guys, job well done. Over and beyond. Thank you!

    Moral of the story: if you want to rescue dogs from a shelter out of fear of euthanasia...hang on to the people’s information of who you adopt them out to! This woman was trying to do a good thing but didn’t retain the info of the people who adopted this dog and this poor pup was on the streets for god knows how long. Thankfully she has a new life now!

    The woman who adopted them , then gave them away should NEVER be allowed to adopt again EVER.

  • KeithH02

    Eldad & Loreta are the loveliest, kindest and hard working people on youtube ! Youre both an inspiration to us all . Especially Loreta, shes braver than I ! She puts out her hand to some big nasty dogs where I would be too wary of being bitten

  • KeithH02

    NEVER understood this ! If you have a pet and cannot look after it, you take it to a shelter or sanctuary, surely ?! Abandoning an animal should be a criminal offence. Deliberate abuse/ cruelty - five years in the slammer.

    What breed or breeds was she?

  • Jessie

    I'm so glad that this pupper is okay now and in a good forever home BUT the story with why she is microchipped already makes me so angry. If you are going to not want a dog put down at a shelter and decide to take said dog from that situation than YOU are completely responsible for that life now and the fact that she was found homeless and skin and bones on the dang street is your fault. How did you not even get the names and personal information from the people you gave those sweet babies to?
