Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws presents yet another great video of the rescue of a dog from the streets of LA. Watch as Eldad tries to gently coax a very timid and terrified little dog from the danger of the streets. The dog slowly begins to trust Eldad and is content to follow him and eventually Eldad successfully captures him.

Eldad then teamed up with Annie Hart of the Bill Foundation to find the dog, now named Scout, a forever home.


Hope for Paws is a husband and wife rescue team run by Eldad and Audrey Hagar. They have fostered hundreds of animals in their home in the past eight years. Their goal is to educate people on the importance of companion animals in our society, especially through their many educational and often heart rending videos.

The Bill Foundation is a Los Angeles based 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. They rescue as many dogs as possible to alleviate the suffering of those abandoned in shelters or on the street. They strive to also provide the highest standard of veterinary care and training until the dogs are adopted into loving, stable homes.

  1. I cannot afford to donate but watch every video you produce with my small terrier Poppy. You do so much good work and my heart goes out to you and those you save. I only wish there were organisations like you here in Tunisia. There is only one who work in the north and I am grateful for their support in helping animals. Well done and best wishes.

  2. I cried like a baby at the thought of this poor little thing being on the streets, unloved and alone :'(
    So happy Scout has found a forever home.
    May her days be filled with such joy and happiness that her past is slowly erased from her mind!

  3. Great idea: Watch this video and use the song “Alive” by Empire of the Sun as your background. They are almost the same length and they work perfectly together!
