10+ Million Video Views - Update on Miley ~ Found in a Trash Pile

Have a look at this adorable face.  So bright and happy.  Vibrant and healthy.    A far, far cry from a month ago, when Miley was rescued from a trash pile by my good friend Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws. If you haven't had the moving experience of seeing the video, you really do need to take a look.  In just one week, it has been viewed over 8.3 million times.  (and the number is growing!)


Please share the video with friends and family

The transformation is absolutely astounding.  Breath-taking.  The message behind it all, even more so. That a living creature, discarded and barely surviving, can come alive if given a chance.  Shown care and love. I have seen all of the videos created by Eldad and this one is by far one of the most powerful. And with so many people sharing it, the message of hope can be spread throughout the world.   That is the miracle of it all. 

I invite you to share the video with your friends and family.  My wish is that it will inspire people to take action and help those in need.   To make a life saving difference to creatures of the four and two legged kind.

You can see many more rescue videos on Eldad Hagar's You Tube Channel and see updates on his Facebook page.   Photos are posted regularly on Flickr:

Just beautiful, and at this time of year a great reminder of how important it is to value our family members, both furred and non-furry.

It also makes me think of all those poor pets that are abandoned at pounds at this time of year because their owners want to go away over Christmas, and those unwanted gifts that are surrendered because no one checked to see if nanna really wanted a kitten. Very sad.

Good to see some happy endings though, these animals deserve a second chance and a forever home.

It's so amazing to see Miley right now. She looks so different and happy at the same time. I'm so glad to know that she is now going to have a new home. I hope her other friend chihuahua will find a new home as well. There are still great people out there that will do everything to save any kind of pet. I hope you will be loved by your new family, Miley.

This is the most amazing rescue story of 2013.
I'm finding it just a little hard to see my computer screen through my tears.
Thank you Lisa, for sharing this story and thank you Eldad for the lives you've saved.
Bless you.
