Rescue in the L.A river sends us to help an unusual animal and kittens too!

  • Published: 02 December 2019
  • Our work requires us to improvise all the time and this time we had an unusual animal, and also help from the SMART Team. It is almost GIVING TUESDAY and I really hope you will join our team with a small donation using the DONATE button here on YouTube or on our website: (Here you can also get your own Lucky Leash!)

    Special thanks to the people working at the immigration building for spotting the kittens down in the river and for knowing to call Hope For Paws for help. Loreta Frankonyte and I started this mission together, and then JoAnn Wiltz joined us, and then the SMART Team from L.A Animal Services - it was a really cool rescue.

    If you would like to adopt DJ Suki & Poppy, please contact our friends at Room 8 Memorial Cat Foundation:

    Thank you so much for sharing our videos - this is how more and more people are learning about our work and this is how more and more animals are getting rescued.

    I really appreciate your support!

    When I was in sixth grade, I found baby rats. Made them pets. Grew up and tear my clothes. Then, I adopted a cat. Don't know what happened next.

    Till now, never seen rats inside the house. 🤔

                    It is a sad story. She clearly miss her baby. But her parents seems good so the dog could endure the problem. Thanks to share the video. 3:12

                                                  Good people, angels, you saved a rat! When I talk with people that rats are animals too, they deserve to be treated like other animals, peoples told me that I am crazy. I feed mouses when I find one, also rats, I cry when I find death rats etc.
                                                  Now I can tell I'm glad that I am not the only one who have mercy on rats! God bless you, guys!
