Homeless dogs live in every city on the planet. From Beijing to New York to London and Prague organizations, like Hope for Paws in Los Angeles California, rounds up lost and homeless dogs and puts them up for adoption.
Recently Hope for Paws got a tip about about two homeless dogs living under a busy freeway in Los Angeles. They sent Vanessa and Eldad to check it out. When they approached the scene they had to crawl through a labyrinth of underground tunnels to get to the animals. Filth was everywhere. The dogs were unkept, malnourished, dirty, and very, very frightened.
It wasn’t cake earning their trust. The male dog responded with hostility at first, protecting his female companion. But after a few moments spent earning the animal’s trust, Eldad and Vanessa manage to slip leashes around their scrawny necks. Getting them out and into the van wasn’t easy either, but eventually the dogs were on their way to be cleaned, fed, cared for, and caged.
The two dogs – now known as Cola and Pepsi – are siblings, and you would hardly recognize them today. Clean and well fed, these pups are looking very healthy. Their transformation is a heartwarming one, and the lucky owner who decides to adopt them surely be very happy.
