It took four days to catch them and four months to bring them back to health.


Hazel and Aiden lived miserably on the street – covered with mange, emaciated, abused by people – and lived underground in an abandoned basement for shelter.


After several attempts over four days we succeeded in safely catching them. They needed to be taken to the vet immediately.


After four months of mange treatment, we started the rehabilitation training. Their social skills were zero and their fears were just too many.


Working with Debbie Jacobs, a certified dog trainer from the US we were able to bring these two precious dog back to trusting people.



“Hazel came around much faster then Aiden,” said Maggie Shaarawi, vice president of Animals Lebanon.


“Over nine months Hazel and Aiden received positive reinforcement training and it certainly worked. Finally seeing Aiden stand proudly with a wagging tail was so rewarding to me.”


August 22nd was Hazel and Aiden’s big day. They were ready to leave Animals Lebanon and start a new journey in the states. Thanks to two great groups in the U.S., As good As Gold Dog Rescue and Hightails Hideway, Hazel and Aiden have a new beginning were they await their forever homes.


We need your help – Donate now for their care and trip to a new life, and help make sure more animals just like Hazel and Aiden get the care they need.
