When Edna was found, she was living all alone in the mountains, starving and struggling to survive on her own. She was eventually spotted by some people living in a gated community, who called animal control with the hope that it could help the poor dog. Unfortunately, animal control was unable to catch her, even after several attempts — but no one was ready to give up on her.
The people who had spotted Edna decided to contact Hope for Paws in hopes that its rescuers would have better luck saving her. When they arrived at the gated community, they found Edna huddled up in someone’s doorway, hungry and scared. They had brought along some food and quickly offered it to Edna, who eagerly accepted it despite her fear.
