Dog saved after huge porcupine quill pierced into eye lid

 In Blog, Rescue Stories

This elderly girl was completely dazed and desperate when a kind man found her stumbling in pain. An enormous porcupine quill was embedded 3 inches into her forehead, piercing through her eye lid. It is astounding that the quill did not pierce into her eye, it was so incredibly close. We are so thankful to the man who called Animal Aid immediately for help, and to all of you who donate, volunteer and share our rescue videos, making it possible for us to help sweethearts like this who otherwise simply wouldn’t survive.

    Thank you for saving this old darling. I think it is so sweet that while being carried to the van she was wagging her tail. The man who called AAU also should be commended for caring.

    I am so grateful to the man who called Animal Aid about this sweet dog. The vet was so careful and lovingly gentle in removing it from the eye. Every day I am overwhelmed with the compassion and love that is shown to these beautiful creatures. I love dogs so very much – I cry happy tears as I see each one brought back from the brink of death in your city. Thank all of you.


    This poor dog would have probably lost his sight if it were not for Animal Aid India. I appreciated the rescue of the dog in a well who was barely able to keep his head above water. I recycled one month’s worth of cans and bottles and donated $25.00 to the charity. I wish it could be more and hope to donate at Christmas time. I have so much respect for the volunteers, the rescuers who risk their life, and the doctors and all the brave and injured animals that trust in these beautiful people. These are the people I admire and not the pop stars and reality celebrities. The Animal Aid India people walk the walk and talk the talk when it comes to being selfless and giving and doing work that is truly of the “divine.” Thank you for everything everyone of you is doing!
    Love from the USA!

    Animal Aid is doing an amazing job. I wish people in India start treating their street animals with love and dignity. Like Mehul above, some day I also want to start shelter in Ahmedabad.
