It’s hard to watch a terrified dog trying to survive all-alone. But at least this story has a happy ending.
Hope for Paws is an amazing dog rescue program from Los Angeles. Eldad Hagar and his team go well beyond what’s expected to rescue all kinds of dogs and give them a chance for a new life.
When Hope for Paws found Bunny, she has been abandoned by her owners in a remote stretch of land. Frightened and confused, the dog crawled under a fence onto government property.
Rescuers couldn’t get into the government property, and the dog was too terrified to come to the rescuers so they could help her, so rescuers had to come up with another plan.
They worked to lure the dog out with a cheeseburger and some soothing words. She wouldn’t come near them, so they backed away and threw pieces of cheeseburger across the road, hoping she would crawl out from under the fence and cross the road to get it.
The cheeseburger did its job. The dog came out from under the fence. But it wasn’t quite enough – she was too terrified of getting anywhere close to the rescuers.
She just kept her tail between her legs and kept her distance.
The only way the rescuers could get pick up the dog and get her to safety was to set a trap. They didn’t want to, but saw no other way.
