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.

Helen: Stray left lying in heartbreaking little ball on side of road

Along the streets of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, stray dogs are a common sight. Most are friendly and a bit skinny as they scavenge about the villages trying to survive; often gentle folks will feed them scraps, even in the poverty stricken areas. When a Good Samaritan notified Animal Aid Unlimited about Helen however, this poor dog’s plight was so tragic that her heartbreaking condition brought tears to even the most stoic of rescuers.

“Our rescue team found her lying in a heart-broken little ball on the side of the road. Her hip bones, rib cage and spine jutted against her paper-thin skin. She looked like she no longer believed that life could hold anything but pain, and she didn’t have the strength to even stand. Pain and hunger had taken everything from her.”

Even as the rescuers offered her cookies, Helen was too weak to accept any food; the aged dog with no teeth had given up all hope. Her crusted skin burned and itched – just a few tufts of fur remaining that had once been part of her glorious golden coat. She cried in pain and agony when she was wrapped in a blanket and picked up to be rushed back to the veterinary hospital at Animal Aid.

Helen’s rehabilitation began very slowly. First she was given medication to ease the intense pain from mange. Intravenous medication was started to fight the severe dehydration, but Helen had been so defeated and so depressed, she still wouldn’t eat. All she did was sleep, and then came a glimmer of hope. For the first time since she was rescued, the dog took a few small bites of food. Three days later she ate her first full meal. By the tenth day, Helen had her first bath – and as the scabs slowly fell off and a soothing lotion was applied to her skin, she began to heal; both physically and spiritually.

Sit back and watch a miracle take place for an old dog that no one wanted. Follow the National Pet Rescue on Facebook.

Baby donkey rescued with hole in her forehead down to her skull

When villagers in the area of Rajasthan, Udaipur, India found a baby donkey with a huge hole in her forehead, no one could believe she was still alive. Needing immediate life saving veterinary intervention, volunteers from Animal Aid Unlimited were notified, and there in a farm area, rescuers found  tiny April nursing from her mother.

The baby didn’t put up much resistance as the men gently placed a rope around her neck and helped her into the animal ambulance, but not without the baby’s mom who had not been far away grazing along the path. Back at the hospital, the critically injured animal had maggots crawling out of her gaping wound, and so medication to kill the insects was immediately applied; that would take hours to work  before further medical treatment could begin. When the maggots were finally dead, April was sedated and started on antibiotics while the staff  removed the dead maggots, thoroughly cleaned out the wound and then bandaged it.

Within ten days, April’s condition had greatly improved; so much so she had been eating with gusto, and the wound which exposed her skull had begun to heal over. 

And now after two months, spend a few minutes, sit back, relax and smile as April’s life takes a positive change because of the kindness of Animal Aid Unlimited. To donate, please click here.

Stray pup survives unimaginable pain after ruthless acid attack

If the photo of Honey found near the village of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, makes you wince in pain, who can even imagine the agony suffered by this dog after some ruthless individual apparently poured acid on her back? And what was Honey’s crime – nothing more than a friendly, stray Labrador retriever and German shepherd mix quietly searching the streets for food?

When a Good Samaritan called rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited, they found Honey. Gently they picked her up and despite the dog’s excruciating pain, she never showed any aggression nor did she try to escape. Brought to the organization’s hospital area, veterinarians set immediately to work.

“Unimaginable pain seared through her when this sweet girl was viciously attacked with acid. All the layers of her skin down to the muscle dissolved. When we rescued her, we promised her she’d have our love forever,” veterinarians wrote on the organization’s Facebook page.

The dog was sedated, and the severe wound which covered nearly half of her back was cleaned to remove all traces of the acid. Gentle salves were applied; then came the clear plastic and bandages to keep the area clean and protected. Day after day, Honey’s wound was cleaned, and not one staff member could figure out why anyone would want to hurt this gentle dog.

After one-month, Honey’s back showed remarkable progress; pure honey was applied to her wound to promote healing. Rescuers worried that the dog’s emotional and mental health would not keep up with her physical improvement, but judge for yourself. Below is Honey’s life six month’s later.

After long life on streets, critically wounded dog finds the ultimate kindness

Life is difficult for street dogs in the small villages near Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Dogs often have to scrounge for a few scraps of food just to survive, and even if critically wounded are forced to quietly suffer while hiding from their predators. Friendly villagers feed many of the stray; it becomes a way of life when few can afford to have their dogs spayed and neutered. Still there are the rescuers who bring forth the heartwarming stories about dogs who never would have had a chance if not for the ultimate kindness; medical and emotional intervention.

Animal Aid Unlimited came to help Edith – an elderly street dog whose wound on her back was so severe and infected, no one even knew why she was still standing and able to walk. What survival instincts mean to our canine friends is often incomprehensible, but rescuers followed her down the street and wanted to help. When they gently laid a blanket over her eyes, Edith didn’t try to escape – she stood still and with a nervous wag of her tail allowed herself to be lifted up and brought back to the hospital area. 

It is not known how Edith survived all these years nor how many close encounters she risked during her long life on the street. She had been the mother of many litters and had walked the streets alone for much of her life. After weeks of intense treatment however, lots of quiet rest and a small army full of compassionate rescuers, check out the beautiful and elegant Edith of today.

Never give up hope: Street dog paralyzed after hit by car

When a concerned villager called into Animal Aid Unlimited in Unaopur, India about a street dog who had just been struck by a vehicle and couldn’t walk, volunteers rushed to the village to help. And there they found him; a shy, little paralyzed dog named Georgie who couldn’t understand why his back legs wouldn’t work. For a long  time, he just sat dazed in the middle of the street completely confused and barely able to cope with the paralysis.

As the rescuers moved closer and tried to make friends with him, Georgie was scared. He dragged himself away and growled defensively when anyone tried to pick him up. One could almost see tears well up in the eyes of the dog’s rescuers as he scooted away each time anyone approached.  When the men were finally able to make  a sling and securely pick Georgie up, he was rushed back to the Animal Aid hospital where emergency help would be available.

“It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes, when nerve damage is caught early and intensive treatment and physical therapy is started right away, there can be reason to hope, and that’s what Georgie did. He hoped,” posted the organization’s moderator on their Facebook page. “He had suffered damage to his spine and urgently needed treatment and most of all rest to stabilize his spine.”

And for weeks, Georgie underwent lots of rest to help heal the nerve damage and physical therapy to help him stand. There were daily massages while his medical staff helped him to stand. Eventually his toes stopped curling in, but he still seemed not able to walk… but he tried and he hoped.
