This precious pup recently got a new name, a new do, and a new family thanks to the wonderful Hope for Paws team and a great guy named Pollo.

Kona’s rescue story began after her so-called “family,” moved away and left her all alone – everything she knew was literally taken away in the blink of an eye. Fortunately, sweet Kona had a friend in Pollo, a neighbor who took on the responsibility of feeding her for over a month. Who know’s what would’ve happened to her without his help! Everything changed when Pollo made a call to Hope for Paws.


When Eldad and Loretta arrived at the location, Pollo already secured Kona to the house. Pollo reported that was the only time he’d ever been able to actually touch Kona because she’d always been so scared. It wasn’t long before Loretta placed the lucky leash around Kona, picked her up, and assured her that everything would be ok.

Once Kona got to the rescue facility, Loretta gave sweet Kona a beautiful haircut. Kona’s skin could finally breathe and needless to say, she looked like a new dog. After a warm, cozy bath she was still a little nervous but seemed to feel like a new dog too! In a few weeks time, Kona blossomed into a beautiful, happy princess! And the princess found her new royal family thanks to PAL Rescue. Be sure to watch to the end, it will leave you misty-eyed from all the sweetness!
