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!

                            The rat, the little tiny rat. That is the cutest moment I have ever witnessed in my life, especially since you guys were looking out for kittens but then saw a rat and thought this animal also needs rescuing and help. And like everyone else says “God bless you guys!” and everyone’s who is kind and looks out for others.

                            I’m gonna cry that was so sweet and I actually want to be an animal rescuer when I grow up 😄😇

                                    Poison of any kind is seriously bad. You poison a rat or mouse, it leaves, and gets scooped up by an owl or hawk. That bird then dies because it ate a poisoned prey animal. Any carrion creatures that feed off the dead suffer, too. Please consider other methods than poison. Its not just the pest youre killing.

                                                    I saw a baby rat in the parking lot of a chinese restaurant once while going inside. I stopped and brought him/ her home. Nursed her for 3 days with kitten milk. Thought it had just got lost from its had horrible seizures and frothed yet tried and tried to stay alive. My love coukdnt save the little one,but I can tell you,rat poison is a cruel,cruel long process in which to die. Should be illegal.

They are prolific breeders as well. It's also likely that such animals fall prey to larger creatures. Considering that many people in the area have rat traps out, it's, "6 of 1", if you simply put the animal out of it's misery, immediately. Another one is waiting to takes it's place. The same holds true for fleas, ticks, bed bugs, lice, mosquitoes, and many more. I understand that these people are humane and would rather not perform such a task. I grew up on a farm. Just get it over with. Another rat is a few feet away.

They can carry many diseases, which can be contracted with just the touch of the skin. Other then that, I'm happy they saved both.
