In January, Danielle Eden from King City, Canada, was on a mission to rescue dogs in her native country, Israel. During her trip, she visited an animal shelter, and was heartbroken by how rundown it was. She wrote on Facebook that she saw six dogs in each cage who battled each other for pieces of bread while rats scurried around.
Instead of rescuing only a few, Danielle pulled a total boss move. She bought the entire shelter and immediately placed 250 shelter dogs under her care. Of the 250 stray dogs, she flew 25—who were the most healthy—back to her and her husband Rob Scheinberg's DogTales animal shelter in Canada.
Danielle and Rob continue to save dogs around the world. Woman's Day says the couple brings between 10 to 20 stray dogs with them on their trips—these dogs are either very old or have serious health problems and can't be left behind.
Over the past two months, the couple rescued 90 more pups from the defunct shelter in Israel, and the canines were given to loving Israeli families. As for the dogs still living in the shelter, Danielle wrote: "We have assembled a team in Israel to clean up the shelter and make the dogs more comfortable until we have the space to bring them here."
Danielle and Rob opened Dog Tales—their animal shelter in Canada—in 2014 after rescuing four stray dogs in Israel. According to BuzzFeed: "The facility is located on 50 acres and features walking trails, large fenced-in paddocks, and therapy pools for the dogs. The dogs are also walked eight times a day." If you want to help the couple save dogs, adopt one, or ask Danielle how you can buy your own shelter, visit their website and reach out to them here.
This story is yet another reason to consider moving to Canada, even if you don't fear a Trump presidency.
