Rescue in the L.A river sends us to help an unusual animal and kittens too!

  • Published: 02 December 2019
  • Our work requires us to improvise all the time and this time we had an unusual animal, and also help from the SMART Team. It is almost GIVING TUESDAY and I really hope you will join our team with a small donation using the DONATE button here on YouTube or on our website: (Here you can also get your own Lucky Leash!)

    Special thanks to the people working at the immigration building for spotting the kittens down in the river and for knowing to call Hope For Paws for help. Loreta Frankonyte and I started this mission together, and then JoAnn Wiltz joined us, and then the SMART Team from L.A Animal Services - it was a really cool rescue.

    If you would like to adopt DJ Suki & Poppy, please contact our friends at Room 8 Memorial Cat Foundation:

    Thank you so much for sharing our videos - this is how more and more people are learning about our work and this is how more and more animals are getting rescued.

    I really appreciate your support!

            Have to admit that I'm HEARTBROKEN over the rat not surviving (have been crying about it for some reason) ... But am IN LOVE (heart duly mended) with those SWEET KITTIES!

                    Let me get this straight: helping a rat ? OMG. I’m still perplex and shocked. I won’t criticize but that’s the MOSTTTTT unusual thing I’ve ever seen in my life. A rat ?

That is the cutest moment I have ever witnessed in my life, especially since you guys were looking out for kittens but then saw a rat and thought this animal also needs rescuing and help. And like everyone else says “God bless you guys!” and everyone’s who is kind and looks out for others.

                                                                          I’m gonna cry that was so sweet and I actually want to be an animal rescuer when I grow up 😄😇

That bird then dies because it ate a poisoned prey animal. Any carrion creatures that feed off the dead suffer, too. Please consider other methods than poison. Its not just the pest youre killing.

I stopped and brought him/ her home. Nursed her for 3 days with kitten milk. Thought it had just got lost from its had horrible seizures and frothed yet tried and tried to stay alive. My love coukdnt save the little one,but I can tell you,rat poison is a cruel,cruel long process in which to die. Should be illegal.
