In December 2017 the organization took to the video-sharing site with one of its most heartbreaking stories ever. Often, the Hope For Paws team rely on member of the public to tip them off about creatures in need. And on this occasion, someone had got in touch to alert rescuers to an abandoned dog living in a park.
With no time to lose, a crew rushed to the scene to help the animal. On this occasion, the task was particularly urgent since their informant reported that the dog was lactating. As a result, it was likely that she’d recently welcomed a litter of puppies into the world.
When rescuers arrived on the scene, however, there were no puppies around. They did find the adult dog, though, who looked traumatized by her ordeal. But despite her fear, the hungry animal approached Hope For Paws staff, possibly in the hope of being fed.
