This rescue video begins on the streets and ends in the pacific ocean!
We couldn't get this injured dog, but then unexpected help arrived! It was so cool to see this amazing turn of events on this rescue. Rene Valencia, the young hero, made all the difference here! :-)
Leslie suffered from a terrible fracture to her leg, but luckily, we have Dr. Antonio Pedraza and the amazing team at CARES to make miracles happen.
If you can, please join us with a small donation and help us save more lives: - The average donation we receive is $12 and so many of our donations are monthly $5 contributions that all add up and make all these rescues happen.
It's Thanksgiving tomorrow and I wanted to say THANK YOU for donating, sharing, watching the ads on our videos, liking the video, and subscribing to our channel - all these things help us so much!
Over the weekend I'll do another LIVE STREAM where I'll be happy to answer your questions. Please make sure to subscribe and click the notification bell so you'll know when we're on ;-)

    For the life of me, I can't ever understand why anyone would thumb down these rescue videos. Your work is showing the best of humanity and should be applauded. Whoever isn't content to see these rescues should focus their attention elsewhere.

      Jim Bob most of the videos are pre pandemic I’m pretty sure. But also great point everyone needs to wear a mask :)

      I like to think the people who disliked mis-clicked or are disliking towards abuse. I really would like to believe this is true because no animal should ever be abused and it’s heart breaking seeing these poor babies like this.

      sometimes it's only because people don't want them in their news feed. they don't know that there is an option: "not interested". so they manipulate the algorhythm to take it out from their newsfeed by giving thumbs down. it works but it's sad.

    the person filming at the end coulda made the dog jump out of the kayak, whistling and talking to a dog like that will get most dogs to move..... anyone speaks to my dog in a high pitched tone like that and he gets deadly excited and turns into an idiot, maybe try not talking to all dogs like they are 2yr olds....

    Oh my gosh how horrible and cruel. That little face has seen so much sadness. You can look into their eyes and know they haven’t been shown real love. If you won’t take care of an animal the why in the heck get one. There are so many mean cruel stupid.,uncaring,heartless people in this world and treats these beautiful animals so bad.All those animals ask for is to love you and you love them. They are so loyal and will give back all love to you. They ask for nothing in return except love me and give me a good home, and food..

    Guys, seriously. Can’t you just think a little? 98% of the dislikes are misinterpreting the buttons purpose. No need to argue with this comment, it’s correct. Are there some who just go against the grain and/or enjoy animals in peril? Yes. But they’re the outliers. Period.
