Airports are extremely high-traffic areas, so when Hope for Paws got a call about a dog that was abandoned near the LAX airport, JoAnn Wiltz and Lisa Arturo headed there immediately.

Airports can be stressful for people, so you can imagine the terror this poor dog was experiencing. With all of the noise and commotion, JoAnn and Lisa couldn’t set a trap and the scared little dog wouldn’t let them come near her. Thankfully, the kind workers at Wally’s Parking showed them the dog’s secret path in their parking garage. It took some time, four days to be exact, but eventually, they were able to safely lure the pup into their humane trap.

After a call with the microchip company Avid, it was confirmed that the dog was indeed abandoned and her caretaker callously stated they no longer wanted her. So, she was given a new name and a new foster home – it was the beginning of a new life for this cutie pie which is why the name Viva fits her perfectly. Now, she is a happy and playful girl living it up in foster care thanks to Foxy and the Hounds.
