For Los Angeles-based animal rescue group Hope For Paws, a few soothing words and a hamburger is often more than enough to gain the trust of an abandoned dog (as seen here), but for Bunny the Pit Bull that wouldn’t be enough as she was too terrified of coming close to her rescuers.
It was no wonder why she was so scared though, she had been let down by humans before when she was left to die by her former owner in the remote and fenced off location that she was found living in. The Hope For Paws rescuers found a way to save her though by placing a trap cage with a tasty hamburger inside of it, then they watched from a distance and waited for Bunny to take the bait.
It didn’t take long for her to do so, and when she was out of the cage back at the rescue shelter, her lovable spirit really showed. It was very clear that all she wanted was to be loved.

Why someone would abandon this beautiful loving baby is beyond me. I’m really grateful for people like Eldad Hagar and organizations such as his, Hope For Paws.

What would make your morning coffee just that much better? What makes everything better, of course…dogs!
Yes, our prayers have been answered! After being overshadowed by countless cat and owl cafes around the world, a new coffee shop has soft launched in Silver Lake, California, that is going to change the game for good. The country’s first dog cafe is set to officially open on April 7!
Aptly named The Dog Cafe, this coffee shop allows its patrons to buy a cup of joe and enjoy it while hanging out with some of the area’s rescue dogs — all of whom are up for adoption.
The Dog Cafe hopes to change how people view and go about adopting pups. Customers get to interact with a pooch before deciding whether or not they want to take that dog home.
The no-pressure, relaxed environment is perfect for those considering adoption. Plus, if you just want to play with some dogs, you can do it while getting your caffeine fix!
Either way, the dogs benefit because they become socialized and comfortable with being around humans and other pups.
The price to enter the café is $10/hour. With that payment, you get complimentary tea or coffee and an awesome time.
For now, entrance is on a first-come, first-served basis, but after April 7, it’s recommended that you make reservations on their website.
Learn more about the great work they’re doing here!
