Much like us humans, dogs are capable of feeling emotions. When they are happy, they will become excited and wag their tail, and when they feel neglected, they will become lonely and sad. Loneliness is something that every abandoned dog lives with for as long as they are not rescued.
That is why Hope For Paws aims to rescue homeless dogs everywhere and find them forever homes where they can be happy for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, not all owners are responsible enough to take care of their pets, just like the owner who abandoned their dog in a lumber yard in the video below.
When Eldad Hagar from Hope For Paws, an animal rescue organization, received a message about a dog living in a lumber yard, Eldad, Loreta, and JoAnn, immediately leaped into action to try and turn the abandoned dog’s world around. When they arrived at the lumber yard, workers informed them about the dog’s location and information about its situation.
The lumber yard was big, but thanks to the worker’s information, they managed to spot the dog in no time. Loreta and JoAnn made themselves look as small as possible by sitting on the ground. This helps keep the dog from feeling intimidated.
JoAnn and Loreta tossed pieces of a cheeseburger towards the dog to lure it. But while the dog did not seem interested in the cheeseburger, it continued to approach Loreta and JoAnn. Eldad is even quoted as saying, “Maybe she just likes a belly rub.” It most certainly seemed like so as the dog was more interested in JoAnn than the cheeseburger.
JoAnn and Loreta took their time to gain the dog’s trust, and their patience and effort paid off when the dog eventually went close to JoAnn, giving her the perfect opportunity to pick the dog up. Finally, the dog was secured with a lucky leash and brought to their car. They named her Shania.
On their way back to the car, they checked on the trash bin, where they found several dog stuff and pet toothpaste, leading them to believe that the dog was abandoned there by the owner. They then brought Shania to CARES, where she was scanned for a microchip and given a well-deserved bath.
After her rescue, Shania stayed with her foster parents and is waiting for someone to adopt her into their forever home. Watch the abandoned dog’s rescue in the video below.
