It’s Time To Cry: Meet Sonya, The Google Street View Rescue Dog

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / September 15, 2013

When a woman who had been feeding a stray dog in Los Angeles asked a shelter to help her get the dog off the street, she had a little help in describing the animal’s location: “Just look on Google Street View.” The dog, who is now named Sonya, had been captured by Google cameras passing through an industrial section of Los Angeles. Using the Google Maps location, Eldad Hagar of the shelter Hope For Paws was able to track down Sonya, wrangle her into a leash, and get her the medical care, food, and grooming she so desperately needed. Grab a Kleenex and push play to see Sonya’s incredible rescue and transformation. [Neatorama]
