It's always heartbreaking when the good folks at Hope For Paws come across an abandoned pet. Little Viva the dog was left all alone to fend for herself around LAX international airport. She was so scared that her rescuers couldn't even get close at first. It took a few days and a couple of traps to finally save Viva. Now she is with a foster family and waiting for her forever home.
