Finding Eddie

Open Paws is a dog rescue centre in Jeddah that was started by an Australian woman, Carmel Hayden in 2011. Dogs have had a bad reputation as being dirty and dangerous and as a result it’s quite unusual to see or even hear a dog in this region.

Nour and Carmel are part of an extremely dedicated group of people assisting dogs in Jeddah.

However, this seems to be changing. More and more people are bringing dogs into their homes but the number of abandoned, lost or unwanted dogs is increasing.

Open Paws is doing an amazing job in helping these animals.

During the episode we accompany them on a mission, to rescue a seriously injured puppy.
