An easy rescue turns to be an emergency rescue - the end is not what you would expect.

    We were not ready for a rescue that day... we were on our way home when one call after another to the #HopeForPaws line changed the whole evening.
    I am glad Loreta Frankonyte and I happened to be in the area so we could respond as quickly and rush from one location to another.
    We had to pay a lot of money to the emergency hospital for Catalina's surgery and we have so many cases like this every week.
    If you can, please take 2 minutes to set up a $5 monthly donation. If many of you will participate, the Hope For Paws team will be able to keep going at full speed and help prevent pain and suffering:
    As a thank you for your support, we have a gift for you that is worth quite a lot of money and will give you peace of mind. Please click here to read all about it:

      You save so many animals....still, the ones you lose are so painful. Catalina was a beautiful kitty and I'm sure she would've been adopted in short order. I'm not a cat fan but pretty much every single kitten you save, I say to myself here "I'd have him/her"...and that woluld be along with just about every dog you save too. Just as well I don't live in California or I'd have hundreds of pets. I mean you even tried to save the life of a poisoned sewer-rat once, How many people would even worry about one. I love rats, have them as pets but most people would not even notice the poor thing. You are fantastic people.

      My family saved 4 animals Story: Well this one we didn't save. we weren't even planing on getting her, but one day my mom was shopping somewhere (I dont remember where) and this guy walked up to her and said "Here have this" and he handed her a bag and walked off. In the bag was a 9 months old corn snake. My mom came home with the snake and we decided to keep her. We named her Tandy because she looked like candy. we have had tandy for 4 or 5 years. This was my cat. she was living on the streets for i dont know how long and some people found her at took her to a animal recuse place. Then she was put in a pet store. My family when to the pet store to get dead mice for our snake and i was near the cats and i saw her in the cage and immediately fell in LOVE. I asked my mom if we could keep her and she said yes. Now i have my best Friends. we have had Ellie for 3 years. This was my Dog. We just rescued him from the pound. I dont know his past life. we have had Tadashi for 1 year Now this one is sad. My other dog Onyx lived in this RV truck with 3 other dogs, a little girl, a man and the mans Girlfriend for 6 months. The other dog were bull dogs and pit bulls, and those dogs were mean, But onyx looked like a black gray hound but he was a Shepard + Lasy Dog. But anywho, We dont know what how old Onyx was when this happens, and we dont even know how it happened but we think this man abused Onyx because this back right leg, the bone was split in half. the man said the dogs did it, then he said he got hurt by the other kids in the neighborhood because he let onyx walk around the neighborhood. We think the man abused Onyx because the man said he went to the vet and said the leg was fine even thought the bone was split in half. Se we got Onyx and it was a 3 hour car ride to get onyx and the drive back home he was in my lap in the very back seat. It looked like Onyx was exhausted . when we got home onyx slept in my brother room. After a while we found out about his leg and we wore a cast for 10 weeks but on the last day he chewed through the cast to get to the bottom of his paw and he chewed off the bottom half of his paw somehow. so he had to wear the cast for another 5 weeks and now that 5 weeks is up and the bottom of his foot is almost dont healing. We have had onyx for 4 months.

      With Love n Respect. Everytime I see one of your vids and an animal doesn't survive I'm comforted at knowing the Beautiful being was shown Love and compassion by Real Humans doing and B'ing Caretakers of Life. I get a feeling that the animal has a knowledge that they mattered, maybe I'm stretching it to come to that feeling but I feel animals are in tune to our intentions. Love n Blessings Family!!!

    46. tiwari navya

      RIP catelina atleast they tried their best to save her and ya the main thing is catelina wasn't alone at her last moments RIP catelina we will remember u forever🙏❤️


      You did your best to save those little kitties which is more than anybody can ask for. You have a heart of gold. Thank you very much for saving them.

    48. Changarookitty

      ELDAD.... PLEASE! You guys need to get some flat edged baking sheets to use for picking up badly injured animals. (Look in thrift stores, yard sales for cheap) The way you just grab them & pick them up, you are causing more pain and if there are any internal injuries, you are causing worse internal hemoraging! Use the sheet like a spatula to slide under the animal then gently slide animal onto sheet as you move sheet under them. That way there is as little movement as possible! ALSO..... when you bend down to pick up animal, bring your chest down as close as possible so you can lift them up to be supported by your chest sooner, than holding them in your arms. Flat, immobility helps reduce pain, panic and worse injury.

    49. Michelle Bilodeau

      At least the little dear one didn't die alone.

    50. nico ong

      is soo sad 😔😭😭😭😭😭

    51. CharlesinGA

      How much junk is in the world? I astounded at the trash and junk you have to go thru to get to animals. I see this on other animal rescue channels from all over the world. Its crazy.

    60. Helen Healy

      I'm always upset when I see cats on the street. Vets will tell you that your cats are safer indoors, from disease, injury and death especially from being run over. My cats are happy watching squirrels and birds from the window and are safe including the wildlife they don't get to kill.

    61. Winter Rain

      Wish I could take care of stray and rescue cats and kittens for a real living, all the time. Wouldn't even ask that much in return. Just to not be homeless. I don't need huge house.


      😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 l am 😭

    76. Natalie K

      I don't cry much when animals die. I know they'll go to heaven and that they're out of pain, so yeah. One of my kittens died too, l cried then later on learnt that he went to heaven and is out of pain, so l stopped crying and enjoyed life with my other kitten

    92. Fee


    93. Not Sorry

      I've never understood why these rescue teams don't try to give a bit of water as soon as they get them to the car. They are usually starving. Wow.

    94. Naomi Takimoto

      Oh no... I’m so sorry for the little baby girl passed away... I’m very sad. Cars are monsters. We humans are responsible for the safety of all little animals on the streets because we are the ones operating the monsters. Poor little baby girl... I feel devastated.

    96. Maysun Paffrath

      My cat that was 14 years old and has been with me since I was 2 was hit by a car the other week and died on the road. The driver felt so guilty he came and knocked on my door and asked me to come with him and see if this was my cat. The description he gave me was correct so I was already preparing myself for the worst. When I got there I just completely froze and couldn’t move. Loosing an animal is so heartbreaking and I will never forget her ❤️❤️❤️. Rip Catalina 💖 your in a better place now 💜
