Kids Help Rehabilitate Dogs For A Second Chance For Adoption

EL DORADO HILLS (CBS13) — Man's best friend turned into kid's best friend on Friday at a special summer camp in El Dorado Hills.

These young people were each assigned a dog to rehabilitate and get ready for adoption on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

"These dogs we had to pry out of cars. They've never even been on a leash. They wouldn't even look at us."

But now look at them, running and jumping. Dogs being dogs.

Dogs of all sizes, who were once considered unadoptable.

Now they're playing follow the leader with some kids having a tail-wagging good time at a summer camp where each child is matched with a dog, one that needed a lot of work.

"And they have taken them and have really just transformed these animals into wonderful pets that will have a chance at a forever home and a really good life."

Big fun inspired by a little dog.

Beyonce—Remember her? She's the cutie in the red cape who was the world's smallest puppy.

Now she's helping kids and dogs in need stand tall. After all, these dogs were on their last leg.

Most were plucked from shelters by the Grace Foundation, which helps to save the lives of dogs in danger.

Now they're ready for adoption, thanks to their new human friends who got them ready for human contact and a new leash on life.

The Grace Foundation is on Latigo Lane in El Dorado Hills.
