Rescue in the L.A river sends us to help an unusual animal and kittens too!

  • Published: 02 December 2019
  • Our work requires us to improvise all the time and this time we had an unusual animal, and also help from the SMART Team. It is almost GIVING TUESDAY and I really hope you will join our team with a small donation using the DONATE button here on YouTube or on our website: (Here you can also get your own Lucky Leash!)

    Special thanks to the people working at the immigration building for spotting the kittens down in the river and for knowing to call Hope For Paws for help. Loreta Frankonyte and I started this mission together, and then JoAnn Wiltz joined us, and then the SMART Team from L.A Animal Services - it was a really cool rescue.

    If you would like to adopt DJ Suki & Poppy, please contact our friends at Room 8 Memorial Cat Foundation:

    Thank you so much for sharing our videos - this is how more and more people are learning about our work and this is how more and more animals are getting rescued.

    I really appreciate your support!

        poor ratty. :( people don't consider how they feel, and what's more, kittens/cats like these can eat poisoned "pests" and die themselves.

                      I would take them in an instance if it wasn’t that I live in Norway. I’m qualified to have 13 kittens 😂. When I was adopting my first cat, we had to go through a strict adoption process. One of the questions was about the size of my house. When I told them, they said that I could take all the cats at the shelter. All 13, as I had more than enough space.

                      I feel I’m going to adopt one soon, as I think one of my own is going to die soon. It’s a horrible feeling to predict someone’s death, an ability I’ve always had. My oldest cat is 14 yrs, both are very healthy but for some reason I feel we’re facing a loos soon. 😢 I know that if it happens, I will adopt a new cat. Can’t live without them.
