A concerned motorist texted Hope For Paws, an animal rescue foundation, about an injured dog that has been seen lying on the freeway. Eldad, the founder of Hope For Paws, knew it was an urgent rescue considering vehicle speeds on the freeway are at about 60 miles per hour.
Eldad rushed to the freeway to search for the dog. Once he caught sight of the stranded dog, he thought of a plan to get him out of there. It would be dangerous for him to stop on the freeway for even just a second. And so, he got in touch with LAPD to help him rescue the poor pup.
Officers Gray and Nichols were more than happy to escort him on the freeway and slow down the traffic behind them so that Eldad can grab the frightened dog. With Eldad leading the way, they headed out to the freeway.
The officers sounded their siren to warn motorists that something was up and slow down. Once Eldad reached the dog, the officers used their patrol car to block traffic on the shoulder where the dog was. He’d been there for 24 hours and any longer could have been fatal for the injured dog.
Eldad hoped that the dog would not bolt as it could run towards traffic. Thankfully, the dog allowed Eldad to approach and grab him. Eldad thanked both officers for going out of their way to help rescue the dog. He then got inside his car and drove back to the hospital.
On the way, Eldad called the concerned motorist who texted him about the dog. She was thankful that Eldad was able to get to the dog in time and that he was finally safe. Eldad assured her that the dog is now in good hands and thanked her for her effort. Eldad named the dog PD in honor of the LAPD for going beyond the call of duty to rescue a stranded dog.
