His homeless owner disappeared one day and he didn't trust anyone!!!

Opublikowany 9 paź 2020
Garfield spent his days at the park, alone and confused because he didn't know where did his owner disappear. Luckily, we got a call on the #HopeForPaws emergency line.
Loreta Frankonyte and I headed out, and after a long search for him, one of the construction workers who have been feeding him pointed me in his direction. At the point I was alone, so I waited for Loreta to meet up with me. The plan was for her to close the gate in the far end of that dead-end street, and I would cover the width of the street with my snappy snare. The rest of the story is in this video :-)

We really don't want to spend any time on fundraising... we prefer being out there, with the animals and getting them to the hospital so they won't have to spend another night outside. Please don't think "$5 is insignificant, so why bother?"... it's just not true - I've been doing this for many years and it's just the best when more and more people help us grow.
Garfield needs your help one more time with sharing his video because we now need to find him a loving forever home! Please share his video with family and friends and help us complete this amazing circle!
Our friends at Balooja's Foundation did an incredible work with getting him out of his shell and it's just amazing to see the difference in him.
To apply to adopt Garfield, please contact: www.BaloojasFoundation.com
Thank you so much for your support!

  • Riding in style! I'd give you a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ GOOGLE review too! Thank you and your team for all you do for these animals.💖 HFP fans... please don't overlook the other species rescues, they're amazing. If you haven't seen the racoon rescue you're missing out. I think its one of the best!

    • Is that a chihuahua?

    • @Hope For Paws - Official Rescue Channel as a San Diego native transplanted to east coast, I love the wildlife rescues!! Grew up on a canyon, loved watching wildlife from the patio at night! Thanks for helping all the helpless ...

    • @Rita Cheatham u can also be one :)


  • The guy by the water is exercising!

  • Please help dog sir thank you so much

  • You are doing excellent work and I pray that God will bless you for it. There are funny moments when I just smile as Loreta is the one who must run to close the gate or gap.

  • my dog gets jealous of the other pups when they play with toys

  • So emotional

  • Thank you so much

  • My heroes. Thanks for saving him. Awesome!❤🐶

  • The barking black dog in the fenced yard is telling Garfield, "Hey, it's Hope for Paws! Stop running! It will be OK. The Lucky Leash is the best thing that could even happen to you. And you just might get a cheeseburger."

  • Garfield is a cute little guy. So happy he has a good life now!!

  • Good Job guy's ‼️❤️💜

  • 👍👏👏👏❤❤❤❤

  • So glad this beautiful dog was rescued. Thank you! I feel for the homeless person who never came back. That person obviously loved their dog so much. I wonder what happened. So much homelessness. So many dogs abandoned. So many questions unanswered. XX

  • Garfield is sooo adorable 😍

  • Awww. So sad. Thanks for helping these precious animals! 🙏🏻

  • 5:47 That dude: partyyy timeee do do do do do dooo 🕺🕺🕺🕺

  • Thank you so much rescuers for saving this beautiful dog. I am a dog lover and I too do whatever it's best possible for me to take care of any helpless dog I meet .Thanks for your noble work.

  • I really salute you, running after her in a very hot day. Tqvm ❤️❤️❤️

  • Glad you got him. What a workout huh. You’re lucky he was over weight. If he was that fast and had that much stamina in his chubby state, he would have left you in the dust down the LA river if he’d been in escape shape.

  • participating for rescue and safety first dog 🐕🐕🐕 good care ❤️

  • God Bless You All, you all make this world a better place, so I say thank you 🙏

  • What a cute dog

  • Great rescue. How could someone abandon such a sweet pup. If I lived in California I would adopt this baby in a heartbeat.

    • His homeless owner went missing. I don't think this was intentional.

  • I thank God for people like you and your organization.

  • I just joined, Hope For Paws, yesterday! I love what you are doing for these precious babies.

  • Just a thought, if you added a could of C-clamps from the wheel platform to the trap, it might be easier.

  • ❤️❤️❤️☀️🌈🥰💕👍

  • Poor wee thing. So frightened almost playing "dead". So sad about his owner. I can't imagine the person would have wanted to have left him. I hope he's found a home. He's so sweet.

  • The guy stretching lol

  • God bless to all of you.


  • Какой милый! God bless you guys for what you're doing to these animals!💖💖💖

  • You guys are God for dogs

  • Homeless people should not have dogs, to own a pet you have to provide the bare minimum...food, water, shelter and medical care.

  • Great work they always do! It breaks my heart to watch these little guys and their big, round, fearful eyes and I wished, people would not be so irresponsible to leave their pets behind.

  • What breed is that? Chihuahua?

  • you all are very good people good luck from tirol austria

  • I wish i could donate but i live in India so i can’t i am very sorry

  • I feed stray dogs 🐕 so that they don’t starve but i am at my grandma’s home 🏡 so it is only a visit but when i go back to my real home then i don’t know who will feed them but I wanted to tell you keep up the great work and you are golden hearted people!

  • Is he still available for adoption

  • I look at all these wonderful animals so grateful so willing to trust .they want to be respected loved and be fed. Thank you for all you do God bless.i feed homeless cats brought 4 home and have my deceased mom's dog.

  • Poms should always have a harness because of possible tracheal collapse with a collar, but I realize in a rescue situation you must do what is necessary ... he is a beautiful boy!!!!!

  • Love guys

  • And there's ninja guy at 5:50 doing a little broomstick cardio on the banks of the beautiful LA River. I bet ya he came down there to boost them but saw their numbers and the camera and was all like... "Who me? I'm just working out with this filthy stick I just found" I was homeless 6 years and that shit right there had my radar up even tho I'm years away from the street. Made me verrry uncomfortable. There is only one reason someone in that environment is lingering around. What? You got a 5 mile stretch of concrete river culvert and you got to do your Jack LaLane right the fk there? I know the casual walk-by with the disinterested but furtive glance. Many times I gave them the 'Get the fk away' if I couldn't get away first. If you're waiting at a right to turn left for the corner bodega there and the hobo who was sitting across the street from the light is now coming down the sidewalk after you parked at the curb... he's coming to see if it you're dope enough to leave your shit open. That one I just straight up told him I seen his shit from a block away. On the street either you are predator or prey. And being I'm an honest guy with an aversion to law enforcement, well, I guess that makes me prey. And believe me I was preyed upon. That said, doggo kinda thick. I guess some good Samaritans had been keeping him fed

  • De beste vangers van Amerika !

  • I wonder what happened to his owner- murdered, sick in hospital, kidnapped, got a job? Anyone looking for dog's owner? What happened to him?

    • Prbly arrested. And this dog scrammed when the Man drug him off. Who knows where his other dogs are

  • I love the extremes you will go to to rescue an animal! You are so patient.
