Story of Dogs Sor and Pich

#ProtectMillions Can you imagine what it's like never having had a bath in your whole life? For dogs Sor and Pich, whom we encountered during our mission on Silk Island, that was the reality. They looked more like two balls of (very dirty) fur when we picked them up.   It took us a while to scrub all the dust off but when we were done, we looked into the eyes of two beautiful dogs - and at hundreds of lice and fleas. We continued the treatment and also took care of the severe skin infections both dogs suffered from.   Thanks to your support, Sor and Pich are doing well and enjoy their life on Silk Island. Please keep helping us so we can go out there and help more dogs like them http://bit.ly/help-silk-island

Badger needs help after territorial fight!

When it comes to badgers, the most common cause of admission here at the centre is territorial fighting wounds. In the breeding season, fights between males (and sometimes even females!) can result in large injuries to the rump that need medical attention. Luckily for this badger, it was found cowering in a barn by a dog and was soon collected by a rescuer from a local badger group. Once transferred to the centre, it was up to our vet team to get it back into perfect shape...

Two worried Swans reunited with their lost Cygnets!

No two swan rescues are the same here at WAF, but our most recent venture was not something we'd seen before! Early one morning we were inundated with calls about two swans who had become separated from their cygnets and were going mad with worry. Luckily, Lawrie and Simon were soon on the scene and were able to successfully reunite the family in just a few minutes!

Months of loneliness could have been prevented if people had done the right thing. Luckily, her feeder finally discovered #HopeForPaws and the rest is history! We just posted more videos on our website: https://www.HopeForPaws.org Both Maple and her best friend Scampi are looking for their loving forever homes! Please share their video so we can find them this home together. Our friends at Angel City Pit Bulls will handle their adoption and you can contact them directly here: http://www.AngelCityPits.org This week we will celebrate our 12th. anniversary of Hope For Paws and I noticed that YOU didn't download the Hope For Paws APP yet :-) Please go to Google Play or the App Store, search for "Hope For Paws" and don't forget to turn on the notification so you won't miss any of the amazing videos that are coming up this week - trust me, you don't want to miss any of them!

Robin encased in expanding foam

Maru quickly comes to the aid of a robin, admitted to the centre covered in expanding foam! Robins can become extremely stressed in captive situations and can even die as a result, so it was imperative that Maru removed the substance as quickly as possible.

I wasn't able to rescue this older dog by myself... I needed help.

On June 11th we will celebrate Hope For Paws' 12th anniversary and I hope you will sign up for getting text messages from me, Loreta, JoAnn and, Katie: https://www.HopeForPaws.org/Join - it's a NEW service that will ensure that you will NEVER miss a Hope For Paws rescue video :-) Little Stimpy was so exhausted from living on the streets, but when he saw me getting too close, he bolted! I hope you will enjoy this one and also comment below and let me know your thoughts... do you think the masks are making dogs extra nervous these days? If you would like to adopt Stimpy, please contact our friends at L.A. Animal Rescue: https://www.LAAnimalRescue.org Thank you so much for sharing our videos. By sharing, you are helping us raise awareness all over the world, you are helping us raise funds so we can save more lives, and you are helping us find dogs like Stimpy loving forever homes. On Thursday (June 11th), I will post another rescue video here: https://www.HopeForPaws.org I really appreciate your support! Eldad p.s. I know I should have called him REN (especially because he RAN away from me), but Stimpy sounded like a cuter name to me :-)

Healing Hearts Florence and Clara are in hospital this week getting their first full health check while the Three Bears, Alice, James and Bân, are at the forth stage of their quarantine process.

Rescuers race to save Fox trapped in fence

Foxes always seem to get themselves caught in unusual places, and this was no different! Simon and Alannah, one of our volunteers, were called out one weekend to help a fox who had become caught in a gate. Although rescues like this are a common sight here, the team soon found out that the gate was not the only issue they needed to fix...

Volunteer with the Animal Rescue Team

One of the most commonly asked questions for our Animal Rescue Team is, “How can I volunteer?” Our team has—and relies on—a strong network of volunteers to help us make a real difference for animals in rescue and disaster relief work. We truly depend on them to help us get this important, lifesaving work done.

One of the most common mistakes prospective volunteers make is waiting until a natural or man-made disaster strikes to begin the application process and to begin proper training and preparation for becoming an Animal Rescue Team volunteer. Unfortunately, by then, it’s too late. If you want to volunteer, it’s important to apply before a disaster. If you get everything done early, you, like our many other volunteers, will be ready to deploy when animals need our help.

I can’t speak enough to the impact people feel from saving animals in need. If you want to make a difference, this is a way to do it. I encourage you to start your application today. With hurricane season on the horizon, our team will be ready to deploy at a moment’s notice - The Humane Society of the United States
