Her leg was cut off by a train, but she still wags her tail

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

When travelers Katrell and Patrick’s arrived in Udaipur by train early on the morning of May 7 2016, they heard the heart-rending cries of a dog somewhere in the near distance. They ran in the direction of the screams and could never have been prepared for the dog they found. The dog who had been crying was standing near the tracks with blood streaming from her hind leg that was severed above the knee. Her leg had just been run over by a train in a freak accident.

The travelers frantically called our helpline and waited in the station for our ambulance to arrive.

The darling dog was so terribly afraid and in so much pain but when our rescuer Ganpat approached she still waged her tail, which broke out hearts into about a million pieces. She cried out at the lightest touch and avoided being caught, keeping just out of reach. When she ran out of the station into an open field we had to act fast before she ran away, so Ganpat quickly threw a blanket over her and was able to pick her up. She never even tried to bite despite being so horrifically injured and so afraid.

She had lost so much blood that although she needed the mangled stump of her leg amputated as soon as possible, we had to wait several days giving her IV fluids and medication to help her recover. When her health had stabilized, we brought her into surgery and amputated her leg.

Watch the video above and meet the adorable Florence who is alive and so happy today thanks to your generous support.

    It’s really tragic but lucky that you guys were there to provide medical help to Florence. Why is it I don’t see Florence on the “Sponsor” page? I would like to make a 6-month donation to Florence. Please let me know.

    Thanks and salute to all your voluntary rescuers.

    Historias muy duras pero que logran sacar una sonrisa al ver el gran amor que se reparte entre estas criaturas que se lo merecen y que saben agradecer todo los cuidados que reciben. Os admiro.

  • Cathy Smith

    i love your work! I do not have much myself but i contribute when i can. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF HAVING OVERSEAS ADOPTIONS LIKE SOI DOG IN THAILAND. THEY ARE ON THE INTERNET AND HAVE HAD MANY SUCCESSFUL OVERSEAS ADOPTIONS THROUGH PEOPLE THAT CAN PAY FOR THAT THEMSELVES. I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO CATCH, HEAL AND RELEASE ONTO THE STREET AGAIN BECAUSE YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO KEEP ANIMALS UNLESS THEY ARE SEVERELY DISABLED FOR LIFE. IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF YOU EXISTED ALL OVER INDIA…one day, maybe. the fact that most street animals are fed and cared for by your communities says alot for India, anyway.

  • Rahulpreet Dhaliwal

Recently, on the streets of India, a stray dog was struck by a train that cut off her leg. Train travelers heard the pup’s wailing screams after the freak accident and when they found the severely injured animal, they immediately called the Animal Aid Unlimited Rescue Team. […]
