Hope For Paws was founded on June 11, 2008 by Eldad Hagar.
When and why did you decide to start posting videos on YouTube?
A friend of Eldad's mentioned one day: "If I didn't personally know you, I would have never believed the stories you're always sharing with me". She continued to say "Why don't you take a camera with you, and show me... take me with you on a rescue journey". YouTube was a fairly new platform, and the first video uploaded by Hope For Paws was seen 14 times (10 of the views were from Eldad's Mom). The channel has grown significantly since that first video in 2009, and as of today, Hope For Paws has almost 3 million subscribers and over 660,000,000 views!
