This dog rescue by Hope for Paws (watch the video below) tells a rescue story that has a happy ending. It also shows how helping homeless pets often requires a team of caring people to help a pet get rescued, recover, and get adopted (a subtle suggestion to consider volunteering!).

I came across this story today and loved it for so many reasons. I particularly am fond of Joanne saying Rupee is a fine example of what can be achieved when a homeless dog is given a second chance. If you are ever thinking of helping a local rescue with their homeless pets, check out our Take Action section of our website as a place to get started.
Read on about Rupee, his pet parent Joanne, and their Everest adventure here.
You can help a homeless pet!
