Did you know that approximately 7.6 million homeless pets enter animal shelters every year in the United States? Or that about 2.7 million of them are euthanized?
And despite the fact many of these poor animals suffer since birth, so many of them die before they ever have a chance at a good life. No one knows this sad truth better than the heroes of Hope For Paws, the amazing California-based rescue organized founded by animal angel Eldad Hagar.
Hope For Paws rescues countless homeless, helpless dogs in Los Angeles County every year. In the following video, we see a scared Maltese named Edie who almost gained status as a euthanized street dog, but evaded the growing statistic just in the nick of time.
In the following video, Eldad Hagar and his awesome crew of heroes show up at the shelter just less than one hour before Edie was set to be put down, as she was sick, scared and vicious.
However, once Edie realized that the strangers were friends and not the enemy, something incredible happened and the terrified little dog began to give in to her rescuers and accept her only chance at a happy life.
This dog’s transformation is hard to believe, but she is one of too few who were saved from euthanization. Check out her incredible story below and please keep in mind that not all animals are so fortunate!
