Hippo didn't worry about his own bleeding - he just wanted the cheeseburger! 🍔

The best way for us to make friends with dogs we need to rescue is to offer them a cheeseburger. Offering a smelly warm treat helps us establish that we're there to help, and many times it reduces the levels of stress right away. Today I would like to ask everybody to make a small donation to our Cheeseburger Fund here: www.HopeForPaws.org
JoAnn knew she is heading out to rescue a BIG Pit Bull, so she got him a DOUBLE cheeseburger and it all worked out really well :-)
After receiving a bath and medical care, Hippo continued to his foster home with our friends at L.A. Animal Rescue and he is now ready for his forever home! If you would like to adopt him, please contact them directly: www.LAAR.org
If you can't adopt him, please share his video with your friends... this guy deserves an amazing home!
Thank you so much,
#HopeForPaws #Hippo #Dog

  • The fact that he was overweight and so trustful right from the beginning makes me think that maybe he wasn't abandoned but lost/ran away for some reason 🥺

    • @LA AR Sadly male dogs aren’t let out of the yard when they’re done breeding they continue to breed them into old age females when their body is old and used and they can’t produce puppies or normally let loose

    • He definitely is too trust worthy and to be a drop off...hopefully the owners will find him, or better yet a NEW forever home that will put him on a diet....

  • Maybe this is a dumb question, but I have been wondering what is your "go to" cheeseburger that you buy for the dogs? They don't look like McDonald's and McDonald's is too expensive and not very nutritious. I will give to the cheeseburger fund if you answer this!!

  • Today I rescued a lost dog. Before I watched you I had no experience of dogs and would never have done anything but shooed it out of my garden where I found him. He was crying (which before I thought was a hungry noise). He followed me inside but didn't want water or food. He liked being stroked so I put down a blanket and after 5 minutes of crying a little and sniffing around he lay down on it, on my feet while we all posted his pic locally. HIs owner was found within 2 hours. He had no collar on because he had sneaked out when an electrician left the door open (so no ID) and he was a very stiff old man, struggling to walk. The family only moved here weeks ago. People with masks and eyes full of tears came to get him. He was so happy his tail wagged his body. That dog didn't get left on a main road without a leash or collar because now I know that dogs cant 'fend for themselves', and no loving owner means to let their dog loose on a road, so he must be lost. Thanks for the education, it's never too late to learn.

  • I just got a new job, so I'm so excited to start donating after I save up a bit!! I'll have to wait a month or two, but I wanna help however I can! You've also inspired me to rescue a dog from my local shelter instead of buying from a breeder or something. I can't wait. I'm gonna go for the dog that needs me the most.

  • I think it's incredibly hypocritical that in trying to save these dogs, you're paying for cows to be enslaved, abused and slaughtered. Dogs are omnivores, you don't have to use the dead bodies of other animals to gain their trust...

  • JoAnn, you have him a very APPROPRIATE name, lol. What s sweet boy! I wonder, so y'all spray/neuter animals you rescue before you put them up for adoption? Or make it a requirement of adoption? There are so many unwanted pets, so much death on a daily basis, the only way to stop the carnage is spay/neuter. God bless y'all for the necessary work you do. I pray the day will come that your rescue services will no longer be needed due to pet abandonment!
