The man snuck up on a stray, sleeping Labrador from behind a fence. He was hoping to get a loop around her neck as part of a rescue, but the dog woke too soon, and frightened, she took off into the LA neighborhood.
After a community spent days attempting to capture the star of this video, they decided to call Hope for Paws, a non-profit animal rescue organization based in Los Angeles, for assistance.
This rescue gets tense as rescuers trail the scared animal through the neighborhood, but before long, she enters a gated property and finds a hiding place under a hauling trailer.
Quickly, the rescuers enter and close the gate, preventing the scared dog’s escape, before turning in the direction of the trailer. Just watch this video and see how the encounter transpires; it’s more than a little inspiring!
With less than 2-months on YouTube, this viral video has succeeded in garnering well over 1.7 million views, and this video was trending at #7 on YouTube shortly after it was released.
Thousands of commenters regularly flock to the comment section to reap praise on our noble volunteers.
Pete Wolf’s kind words echoed what many are saying in the comment section, “I can’t put into words how much I admire and appreciate the work you guys put in rescuing these abandoned and abused loving creatures. Please continue to do what you guys are doing.”
Kevin Lluberes admitted, “This video truly made me cry my eyes out.”
Our Labrador, Perla, quickly found a new home and is now loving life with her new family.
