Eldad Hagar from HopeforPaws.org at BlogPaws 2012

Eldad Hagar from HopeforPaws.org, whom many of you met at this year's BlogPaws conference, had ticket to Saturday night's "CATS for Cats" celebrity musical benefit at L.A.'s Orpheum Theatre for Kitty Bungalow. All dressed up with someplace to go, he got a call, which for Eldad usually means, "Drop everything!' And he did...

Where's Eldad??

Last year Eldad met a homeless disabled veteran in downtown L.A. who was sleeping in his car with his four dogs. Eldad gave the man some dog food and his card - and told him to call if he ever needed anything. 

Not the guy we're talking about, but another guy
Eldad photographed in Santa Monica some time ago.
But you get the general idea, homeless animal lover...

The man finally called last night. He said the V.A. had helped him get a small apartment, where he'd been bringing home homeless dogs. He was up to fourteen dogs now and asked Eldad if he might be able to help with some dog food and to find them homes.
A 'night on the town' went out the window and Eldad instead went to the pet store, grabbed a car load of dog food and spent the night taking photos of this kind man's dogs - probably not far from the Theatre where CATS for Cats was being performed. Eldad will be posting pics and trying to find forever homes for these dogs next week.
This is an average day in the life of a full time animal rescuer. Here is something easy you can do to help:

The Forgotten Dog Foundation helps Eldad and Hope for Paws by fostering and helping place some of his rescues, fundraising, etc. Please take a second to click on the Facebook contest link HERE, "like" the page, select The Forgotten Dog Foundation, and vote for them to win a $20,000 food donation from Kriser's Pet Supply(You can vote daily for the next seven days).


Thank you! And next week... 
Cokie and Kristin

I love that picture of Eldad with Jasmine and Paige. :)

What a good heart Eldad has... I was just so impressed with him. All animal lovers can relate. Knowing him, I know he will be able to find homes for those pups.

What a great guy. One thought has crossed my mind tho, that man he helped who had taken in all those dogs., I'm hoping this doesn't get that guy in trouble with the landlord. Places to live aren't exactly a dime a dozen where they will allow pets. I'd hate to see him go back to being homeless. It's wonderful of him to do it tho, I just hope it doesn't end up doing him in.

That's a great story. It is especially touching that a homeless man (well, recently homed), who doesn't have much to give himself, is taking in needy pets.
