Heartwarming moment abandoned dog learned to trust humans again as couple track down animal they spotted lying in the road on Google Street View


A dog was rescued from the streets of Los Angeles thanks to a woman who spotted the lost-looking canine while surfing Google Maps.

Jennifer Velasquez contacted the Los Angeles-based group Hope For Paws and let them know where she had seen the dog. She was sitting in front of what looked like an abandoned building, which is right where Hope For Paws’ employee Eldad Hagar found her when he set out to find her.

A local business owner said that he had seen the dog there for as many as 10 years, according to Hagar, who posted a video of the rescue on YouTube.

The dog, which he named Sonya, was shy toward Hagar at first, hiding under a truck instead of greeting him - but she happily gobbled up the bits of cheeseburger he fed her. 

After a while, she trotted out from underneath the truck and over to a parking lot, where he tried to gain her trust and get a leash on her.

Eventually, she allowed Hagar to pet her and before long, she was nuzzling up to his side and inviting the affection. Hagar then loaded her into his SUV and took her to a groomer, who shaved her mangled coat and gave her a bath. 

She was then taken to a vet, as it was revealed she had several tumors and other health problems, including arthritis. She was given the medical treatment she needed and eventually taken in by a foster family.

Two weeks ago, a YouTube user commented on Hagar’s video with an update on her health. 

The user said she was having some problems with bone spurs in her back and that a vet said it could lead to paralysis. 

'She is too old for surgery and that type of surgery is iffy even on a young dog,' the user wrote. 'We have started her on new meds and have started acupuncture. She seems to be responding well to her first session.

'The vet said if she were still on the street she probably wouldn't be walking. Sonya is doing good and is happy as ever. Please send her good thoughts and we will take great care of her.'

adoptpets: I don’t know how that shop owner just did nothing for that poor dog for 10 years. It’s really amazing though how she was rescued by Jennifer looking on google street view & how Jennifer took action and didn’t just ignore the dog. There were some truly great people involved in her rescue. And that dog is just a sweet old gal. At least in her final years she finally found a loving home and the unconditional love she deserves.

Dog Foster

theveganabolitionist:

Sorry for moving-related posts lately. I just need to get shit in order and this is probably the best place to ask for help.

I’m staying with a friend who can hide my cats in her no pets-allowed apartment building, but not a dog. I do NOT want to give up on her, but I need about a month to get money for my first month’s rent. If someone on the east coast could watch her for a month, I would be eternally grateful. I could also pay you back once I got my job, some kind of fee for a service or whatever. Anything, really.

She’s seventeen pounds, and a cockapoo. She loves ALL people, and is a snuggler. Her name is Emma.

Help a vegan and her baby girl out.

we need a foster in europe for this dog immediately. we got her off the streets, but the vet said she will never be able to use her back legs. the clinic cannot care for her for much longer. if anyone can help, please contact me. thanks.
 the admin will know the name of the clinic. she is off of the streets, but the clinic cannot care for her long term. she needs a foster in turkey or europe right away. we are going to raise funds through an auction for her wheelchair and transport to a forever home, if we can find someone who can handle the responsibility.https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/137949369697560/

Find-a-Friend Friday: George the Turkey (Sultan, Washington)
I know that Tofurky Day has come and gone, but in honor of the holiday, today’s adoptable animal is (drumroll please) a turkey!
Depending on where you live, adoptable farmed animals aren’t always easy to find locally; birds who are exploited for their meat, like chickens and turkeys, are even rarer at shelters and humane societies. So today, let’s take a trip to Sultan, Washington, where Pasado’s Safe Haven cares for a variety of companion and farmed animals – turkeys included.
Along with Newbie and Eagle, George the turkey is one of a few lucky birds who have found refuge at Pasado’s.

George the Turkey
George is a 3 year old, male, Bronze Turkey. The Bronze turkey has very big, patterned and colored, fanning plumage to show off and this big beautiful guy is a typical older male turkey. He is very confident, and gets along well with everyone, assuming they give him room to strut and spread out those gorgeous feathers that make the turkey ladies swoon!
George is able to fly, and can go over the 4 foot fence with ease, so any family that takes George in, should be aware that he needs an extra high enclosure to keep him safe from predators. George gets along well with chickens, roosters, and other turkeys, but should be monitored when he is with other male turkeys to ensure that no rivalries are started. George loves to roost, and it is not uncommon to find him perched somewhere high, resting and watching the flock.

If you’re not set up to care for farmed animals – and, let’s face it, most of us aren’t – please consider a donation to help fund Pasado’s kind and compassionate work. Like many rescue groups, they also need volunteers, foster homes, and even an intern. Please spread the word (and spare the turkeys)!

Adopt and foster animal victims of Sandy

vegansaurus:

This is Penny (ID#A0949842)Are those not the saddest eyes? From Gothamist:

Animals have not been immune to the devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought upon the city this week. And of course, everything that could go wrong had gone wrong this week to cause a sudden surge in homeless animals: Animal Care & Control web servers have been down since the storm, local shelters have lost power, and there has been a lack of support from local chapters of National Animal Groups. So there are a lot of homeless kitties and lost doggies who desperately need you to adopt or foster them, or else they’ll start being killed next week.

See Gothamist for more info. Help if you can!

Iron Man commands you to foster a cat.

He promises to get even hotter as he ages, and just two panels later requests that you foster a cat. BAM!, done.

New York Area: Sweet Roscoe is having a rough time at the shelter, needs a home!

vegansaurus:

This handsome fellow is Roscoe! He’s at the Shandaken shelter, which seems to be about 2.5 hours from NYC. I got an email about this guy because, though he’s at a no-kill shelter and not endanger of euthanasia, he’s having a hard time:

Roscoe has been at the Shandaken shelter for a long time. His life is not in danger, since it’s a no-kill shelter, but his sanity is. He’s lonely, and he’s been kenneled so long he’s starting to get a little “cage crazy.” The Shandaken shelter doesn’t get the kind of foot-traffic that they get in NYC or other busy places. And Roscoe is a bit aloof when people first meet him (can you blame him?), so he doesn’t immediately win them over, and they move on. But I’m told that he’s a real sweetheart once you spend time with him. He just needs a chance to show it!

Aw, poor guy! Do you know anyone who could help Roscoe? Homeboy needs to spread his wings and fly! His profile says he loves to play and that the volunteers play hide and seek, fetch, and catch with him! It also says he’s very smart. And look at that pretty coat!

If you or anyone you know can help Roscoe, please call the shelter at (845) 688-5004. Roscoe deserves a home!

(I’ve been trying to post this for awhile, so if you see like 5 of these tomorrow I apologize)
If anyone in Florida is willing to be a foster to a pit mom and her 8 newborn puppies, today (1/7/12) is their last day at Orange County Animal Services in Orlando before they are ALL euthanized. The mom will take care of her babies and all vet bills and whatnot are taken care of by the rescue group, all you have to do is provide a temporary home for them. The rescue group can even possibly arrange for her and the puppies to be transported to you depending on where in Florida you live, but they can’t pull her from death row until they get a foster. Contact Passionate Pet Rescue.

Fuck, guys, really.

Reblogging… Wish I were in Florida….
never thought I’d say that…..

I know I have followers in Florida… Can any of you help?!

PEOPLE IN FLORIDA. TAKE HER.

vegansaurus!: Hey NYC: Take this sweet guy in from the cold!

vegansaurus:

Pepe needs a home! A volunteer from the Pets for Life NYC program sent me an email about this cute dog: “He’s been living alone in a fenced-in lot in the Bronx for over a month, and although kindly neighbors are feeding and watering him he’s going to need a foster, adopter or rescue before it gets cold.”  

If you think you can foster or adopt Pepe, contact mattwildman76@gmail.com.

Here’s where Pepe’s been living:

Here’s a more detailed description from a volunteer:

Pepe is a lovely, young, rottie, shepherd, pit mix who was left in a lot after his owner was arrested. Local residents have been feeding him and giving him water and Pets for Life NYC bought him an insulated dog house to keep him warm. Pepe as you can see in the photos is a wonderfully friendly dog. He sits for treats and has a very soft mouth when taking treats. He did not resource guard when our volunteer took away toys and food from him. He also did not show any guarding behavior over his fenced in space. He licked our volunteer in the face throughout the duration when our volunteer was putting together the dog house. Pepe is not neutered and showed some humping and over-stimulation with our volunteer which is to be expected from a young, unneutered dog with his energy level who has been getting little physical or mental stimulation. However, the behavior never escalated and our volunteer was easily able to control Pepe by offering hm some treats which he sat for on command. He’s a great dog and we are hopeful a rescue group may take him before the cold sets in.
