This organization is based in Los Angeles, California. Founded by Eldad and Audrey Hagar.
Since 2008, Eldad and Audrey have been running this two-person non-profit animal-rescue organization full-time. During its early years, Hope for Paws operated ad hoc but quickly gained a number of loyal followers and supporters around the world when Eldad posted a YouTube video about a blind dog named Fiona.
