I’m really excited to introduce you to this next person I met at BlogPaws 2012! Eldad Hagar was a fellow student in that video class I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that was hosted by Kenn Bell from The Dog Files. Apparently, even without all the great tips we learned from Mr. Bell, Mr. Hagar has managed to shoot some amazing videos that have become YouTube sensations. This dog pictured here is the famous Fiona who has garnered millions of views. It’s hard to believe this is the same dog!
When I introduced myself to Eldad, I confessed that I’d never seen his videos before, but he graciously gave me a beautiful book called, Our Lives Have Gone to the Dogs that he and his wife Audrey wrote. It features several stories of some of the thousands of dogs and cats they have rescued. I could go on and on about this small but mighty organization, but this video is worth a thousand words:
Eldad told me my homework was to go to my room and watch their videos at www.hopeforpaws.org, which I did. And another one. And another one. And another! I don’t even know how many I watched that night. Actually, when I saw Eldad the next morning, I chewed him out for my puffy eyes and making me stay up too late crying and watching! But I knew a friendship had been born, and I am honored to support this worthy cause.
Hope for Paws has been particularly effective at hand rescuing animals, usually in the Los Angeles, CA area, but occasionally have been flown in to rescue animals in acute situations in other areas as well. They clean and care for these helpless creatures so they know how to receive love and are ready to be adopted by a family.
