Left for dead after hit by car, but look what kindness has done

In the rural areas of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, a dog left for dead hyperventilated and trembled in pain after he was hit by a vehicle who never bothered to stop. Pintu couldn’t move, and it was only a matter of hours before he would die.

Fate stepped in and a Good Samaritan spotted him and immediately stopped her car to help. She placed large stones around the dog to protect him from being hit again and called Animal Aid Unlimited for help. When rescuers arrived, Pintu was nearly in shock and was unable to stand – he could lift his head up, however his legs didn’t move.

Rescuers picked him up, wrapped him in a blanket and brought him back to the hospital for emergency treatment.

“When we brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital we found that this gentle sweetheart had no fractures, but his spine was injured and he could no longer stand. He was so trusting that even from the very first moment he seemed to know we were trying to help him,” the organization wrote on their Facebook page, updating Pintu’s situation.

And for the next six-weeks, Pintu rested and received physical therapy. Watch how this brave little hero has made his new life.

Unconscious dog collapsed in a field makes miraculous recovery

It had been in the area surrounding  Udaipur, Rajasthan when rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited were called to help an unconscious dog that had collapsed in a field. Half of her face was submerged in a shallow pool of water; at first rescuers weren’t even sure  she was still alive. Her heart had been beating slowly, her respiration was shallow and the young, defenseless pup showed all the symptoms of having suffered brain injury as the result of a trauma to her head.

Rescuers carefully picked her up as she quietly whimpered in pain and brought her back to the hospital where treatment began. Several hours later, the dog dubbed Angela began to regain full consciousness, but she was not able to balance nor stand on her feet.

No one ever gave up on Angela, and although each day was a challenge, she repeatedly made brave attempts to stand. And then came a few wobbly steps and Angela began to walk – all the while her trusting eyes believing in the humans who were helping her.

Gradually changes came, and after two months Angela blossomed. Watch her video to witness her miraculous recovery.

Phoenix’s story: Dog dying in gutter turns out happiest of endings

Phoenix’s story might not have had a happy ending had the timing been different, but when volunteers from Animal Aid Unlimited showed up after they received an emergency call that a dog had been lying in a sewage ditch and drowning, the team of determined rescuers set forth on a mission to save a young dog.

Although Phoenix had only been lying in a foot of water, she was so very close to drowning.

Bubbles could be seen as her nose dipped below the water; her strength drained from her struggles and the intense pain she suffered. Perhaps five minutes later and left unattended, Phoenix would have died.

As she was lifted from beneath the sewer, her back leg hung lifelessly. She most likely had been struck by a vehicle which broke her leg. She had climbed into the shallow, cool water to ease her suffering and to stop the bleeding.

Once brought back to the emergency hospital at Animal Aid, veterinarians stated the young dog was in shock; her pulse weak and hypothermia had set in. Phoenix’s leg needed to be amputated; it was badly infected and necrotic, but she was too weak to undergo surgery. For days, her life hung in the heavens – it had been a balancing act to help her regain some of her strength, stave off the infection and keep her pain tolerable.

Three days later, Phoenix was ready to undergo surgery and have her sepsis leg amputated.

Fast forward to weeks later – no slowing down being a tripod. Make sure you watch the video to the end; smiles and more smiles are guaranteed.

Selene’s unbelievable journey to rescue after she nearly bled to death

In Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, it must have been Selene’s adrenaline that helped her make it to a field after having been hit by a car. The young dog’s front leg had been split open; had it not been for a Good Samaritan who called rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited, the dog would have bled to death.

Although she openly seemed to be writhing in agony, Selene was so frightened when rescuers arrived, she jumped up and painfully hobbled further into the field – although she didn’t growl or show any aggression. Slowly the rescuers were able to gain her trust, and when they were finally able to cover her with a blanket and carry her back to the waiting ambulance, Selene knew she was going to be helped.

 

Back at the hospital, she was sedated; her wound flushed and cleaned. As veterinarians examined the wound, which actually had exposed the four major muscles of her leg torn apart, there were no major arteries or veins severed.  Selene underwent surgery – not to amputate her leg, but to repair it and help her heal.

One month later Selene’s unbelievable journey to rescue needs to be seen. Her frightening story will renew your faith in humans. Behind her surgery and recovery is the loving support of donors:https://www.animalaidunlimited.org/how-to-help/donate

Dog’s leg severed by train, but his tail still wagged when rescued

In an incredible rescue by Animal Aid Unlimited in Rajasthan, India, a young dog had been struck by a train. Nearby village residents called the animal shelter for help. Little Spirit’s leg had been severed, and it hopeless dangled; only the small bits of remaining skin kept it attached to his body.

When the rescuers arrived, they found Spirit in a small hole near the railroad tracks. He had burrowed himself beneath a pile of garbage and must have been waiting for the pain to subside. The pain would not have passed, and had he not been rescued, Spirit would have soon died.  As a volunteer carefully tried to pick the dog up from out of the hole, he cried out in pain; his screams were utterly heartbreaking. Who could imagine how he had been suffering?

As Spirit was carried to the waiting pet ambulance, his tail wagged. Not a snarl nor a growl, Spirit knew he had been rescued.

“Nothing could stop Spirit’s incredible will to be joyful,” his rescuers wrote on the organization’s Facebook page.

At the hospital clinic, the pup was prepared for surgery. Sadly there was no way to save his leg, but learning to be a tripod wouldn’t interfere with this little Spirit’s will to live and happily wag his tail.

Check out the video, and watch Spirit’s recovery just two weeks later.

Street dog noticed by villagers lying in same place for more than a day

In Udaipur, India, a street dog had been struck by a vehicle. She slowly crawled away and settled on the side of the road. The accident had fractured her jaw and broke several of her teeth; she was suffering and slowly dying.

When  concerned villagers called Animal Aid Unlimited, rescuers rushed out to the area and found the young Labrador mix unable to stand curled up in a ball. She seemed disoriented and most likely had not eaten or had water in days. She was carefully lifted into the arms of rescuers and brought back to Animal Aid for treatment.

Named Dory, the sweet dog collapsed when placed onto the examination table. There the medical staff were able to gently open her mouth to discover her jaw was fractured and several teeth had been broken. Had she not been rescued, she would have soon died of dehydration.

A wire was placed in Dory’s jaw to help heal the fracture. It was long before the dog was able to eat again; it had been a long time since she enjoyed a full meal and now with no pain, Dory truly enjoyed the experience.

Weeks later Dory’s life completely changed; a dog who had given up hope found a reason to smile.

Discarded and thrown away: Baby calf rescued in most touching way

Just days old, discarded and thrown away as if her beating heart, her soft fur and big brown eyes didn’t mean anything to anyone, a baby calf appeared lifeless as she waited to die . In Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, however, little Merry’s life did count. Rescuers showed up along the side of a dirt road just hours before she would have died.

“She must have walked until she was too weary to stand anymore,” Animal Aid Unlimited, an organization whose focus  is to bring relief to animals and to help educate people about their proper care. “Or maybe her mother had died and the owner didn’t want to pay for milk?”

Barely breathing when rescuers picked her up and placed her still body onto the rescue’s animal ambulance, it wasn’t known if the newly born calf would even survive. Completely dehydrated, the first step was to administer fluids and nutrients, and for four days, the calf’s life hung by a string. Rescuers named her Merry – the baby deserved a name no matter what her fate was to bring.

On the fifth day, Merry stood up on her own four legs; maybe just a little wobbly, but nevertheless she continued to improve. With bottle fed milk and lots of love, spend a few minutes and watch this calf’s video of love and life. You won’t be disappointed.

Three puppies stuck in hardened tar for hours

Three puppies had been stuck in hardened tar for hours in Udaipur, India; their hours left to live were limited until a Good Samaritan alerted the rescue organization Animal Aid Unlimited for a last ditch effort to help.

When the rescue team arrived, they could immediately tell the three little ones had been suffering in the black tar – unable to move and set to work on a plan.

“Three tiny angels were trapped in hardened tar. They were so completely stuck, they couldn’t move a muscle. It looked like they’d been engulfed for hours, and one little baby’s mouth was even stuck open. Neighbors had heard their heart-wrenching cries for help and had called Animal Aid,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.

And then the rescuers went into action.

“Prying them loose was impossible for the tense rescue team, so we had to cut the tar loose from the rocks below and bring the puppies and the tar and gravel they were stuck in back to the hospital. Determined volunteers and staff spent hours to soften the tar with oil and dish soap, with time out only to plant kisses on the puppies’ noses. Multiple warm baths later…and wow. For babies who had been on the brink of death, this is what happiness looks like.”

For the next few days, the one-month-old puppies were massaged with oil and bathed until all remains of the tar were removed. What makes the story even better – the mother of the babies was found, and all have been rejoined and kept until they are old enough to find new homes of their own.

Spend a few minutes and check out this glorious story of rescue – work like this is what we all love to see and read. The video has garnered worldwide approval.

A drowning dog’s plea for rescue is answered

In the area of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, volunteers from Animal Aid Unlimited are always busy bringing relief to suffering animals. A drowning dog’s plight was no different, and her rescue was nothing short of a miracle as a frightened and very tired dog knew her time was soon running out. Either she had fallen or been dropped into a 70 foot deep well; there was no place for her to climb nor was there any place for her to rest. Either she kept paddling or she would surely drown.

When Animal Aid Unlimited volunteers arrived, it appeared the Lab had been struggling to stay afloat for hours. She repeatedly grabbed the rocks on the side of the well with her bleeding claws; one piece of jagged rock held out her only hope of resting. She had nearly lost her strength, when Ganpat rigged himself up with a harness, rope and quickly navigated down the treacherous side of the rocky well.

And when she saw Ganpat, the dog knew her prayers had been answered. Quickly she swam towards him, moved willingly into the net brought to safely lift her to safety and so another life was saved. Watch her amazing rescue as we remind ourselves of the goodness and compassion of so many people we want to thank for their kindness towards all that cannot speak.

Amazing rescue: Puppy suffered burns over 30% of her body from boiling water

It had been a terrible accident for an owner’s beloved puppy when she accidentally fell into boiling hot water in the village near Udaipur City, Rajasthan, India. Basanti’s owner called Animal Aid Unlimited for help the moment it happened; he found his dog who he had cared for since she was a puppy, hiding in an abandoned building – clearly in agonizing pain. Nearly 30% of her body had been badly burned.

When rescuers arrived, they saw the puppy’s legs and underneath her belly had severe injuries. The skin had started to become necrotic; life saving rescue treatment had to be done immediately or Basanti would have died.

The first order of business, as she arrived at the hospital was to ease her pain, and over a period of time to carefully remove the necrotic tissue to encourage new skin to grow.

Although the puppy was sedated during the painful bandage changes as her burned skin was methodically peeled, it wasn’t until one week later  when all of the burned tissue was finally removed and re-bandaged, did her healing really begin. Such a brave girl Basanti was – no matter how many medical procedures she endured, her tail never stopped wagging nor did her amazing personality, spirit and will to live not shine through.

And three-months later a new, energized puppy played in the yard. Check out the video.
