We couldn't get this injured dog, but then unexpected help arrived! It was so cool to see this amazing turn of events on this rescue. Rene Valencia, the young hero, made all the difference here! :-)

Leslie suffered from a terrible fracture to her leg, but luckily, we have Dr. Antonio Pedraza and the amazing team at CARES to make miracles happen.

If you can, please join us with a small donation and help us save more lives: - The average donation we receive is $12 and so many of our donations are monthly $5 contributions that all add up and make all these rescues happen.

It's Thanksgiving tomorrow and I wanted to say THANK YOU for donating, sharing, watching the ads on our videos, liking the video, and subscribing to our channel - all these things help us so much!

Over the weekend I'll do another LIVE STREAM where I'll be happy to answer your questions. Please make sure to subscribe and click the notification bell so you'll know when we're on ;-)



  • For the life of me, I can't ever understand why anyone would thumb down these rescue videos. Your work is showing the best of humanity and should be applauded. Whoever isn't content to see these rescues should focus their attention elsewhere.

    • These sort of people have a heavy black heart... They must've been hated and bullied in life... Parents never showed any affection for that person..

    • @Adrian Blakely Exactly my thoughts they should had life preservers on! I did NOT thumbs down this video but that might be why some did. I don't think every thumbs down means it's from someone cruel although there are a lot of people that think it's just a dog that neglects and abuses them 😒 so some of the thumbs down could be from people like that, too. Accidents can happen so fast as I WITNESSED when a neighbor's beautiful dog accidentally got let out of their fenced in yard got hit by a car and as she tried to get out of the way they hit her again on purpose 😤😤😤 She let out a LOUD YELP dying seconds later. It was not even off a main road but in a residential area. That really affected me seeing that and always felt bad that I didn't try to get to her before that car did. After that I am really hard on people that don't have their dogs on leashes outside of their home and/or outside of a fenced in yard. So, I don't always judge every thumbs down as coming from a bad person although some videos there is just nothing at all in it to give cause for a thumbs down.

    • That’s exactly why.......attention. They want it. I guess it’s possible some of them truly don’t understand? Perhaps they just are seeing hurting animals and push the thumbs down? I mean there’s tons of kids on the channel so who knows

    • sometimes people just don't want it in their recommendations. so just ignore it.

      Heidrun SchwartzHeidrun Schwartz个月 前
    • I wonder if people sometimes indicate that they didn't like something in the video, like feeling sad when seeing animals in need, or that the family couldn't keep the dog. Maybe there is confusion as to what the thumbs up and down mean. Also, what is the point of a 2-point system if you're only meant to/allowed to use one of the points? 😳

  • Not the point of the video, but oh my goodness girls- You really should have on life jackets while kayaking. Yikes.

  • We have 2 rescue Dogs, one a Newfoundland, the rescue centre kept asking us are you sure you know how big they get?, We assured them over the following two weeks that we did, we finally got him, he's a gentle giant, the other a Border Collie, the owner actually posted a statement on FB that if he wasn't gone that weekend, she would have him shot by a farmer local to her on the Monday, we went to see him, he was 5 months old, scared of absolutely everything & every-one, we ended up taking him hom that night, he is now a very happy 4 year old, still nervous of strangers, but great with us & gets on very well with Happy, the Newfoundland very well 😊

A wonderful organization to Foster and do all the medical needs and then to find her a terrific family. This dog's life has been transformed and her mommy's too. I know I did dog rescues kept them my world was blessed by them now I do cat rescues136+ counting new homes 4 in my home and feed 13 everyday what a blessing I live a purposeful life.yeah
