Hope for Paws received a call from Citlaly Rodriguez and Issac Barajas, two teenagers that heard two dogs crying in the sewers. The teenagers stayed by the dogs’ side until the rescuers came to help them.
Rescuing the two dogs
Loreta and Eldad, volunteer and founder of Hope for Paws, arrived at the area where the two scared dogs were. Loreta fed the dogs some treats and petted them to earn their trust.
Loreta placed a leash on the female dog and named her Dixie. Eldad decided to call the other dog Winn and put a leash on him as well.
Eldad hand-fed and petted both of the dogs before leaving the sewers. The dogs were calm and felt safe in the hands of the rescuers.
The two teenagers helped the rescuers carry the dogs up the sewers. They had to be careful because the way up was inclined and steep. Without Citlaly and Issac calling Hope for Paws for help, their mission would have never been completed.
A new chance at life
Hope for Paws thanked Citlaly and, Issac, for calling and told them that they would keep them posted about Dixie and Winn. Before they even got to the car, Dixie and Winn were already wagging their tails in joy. Eldad scanned both of the dogs, but they did not have any microchips on them.
Winn and Dixie both had eye infections and were covered in fleas, so the volunteers at the shelter had to give the dogs a medicated bath. It was a challenge for them to get the smell of the sewer off the two dogs, but it was all worth it.
Hope for Paws’ friends from Wag and Walks agreed to take both dogs in, and shortly after, they found a fantastic home that would adopt both of them together.
