Dog’s legs crushed by train but not his spirit

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed
A street dog had hit by a train and his legs were horrifically crushed. Railroad workers had seen the dog lying by the tracks and called Animal Aid’s helpline to urgently call for help. When our rescuers reached we found him quietly sitting by the tracks with his legs mangled beyond belief. His front leg was attached by just a few threads of tissue.
When we got him back to Animal Aid we assessed his injuries and it was clear that in order to save him he would need one leg completely amputated and two legs partially amputated.
We had never before rescued a dog with such ghastly injuries but yet who was so alive and otherwise healthy. With heavy hearts we didn’t think we could save him and that we would have to euthanise him.
But as our team stood around him, petting him and trying to sooth his pain, we decided to let love be our guide.
We took him into surgery and our doctors and nurses spent the next five hours amputating his crushed limbs.
It took Deepak over 6 months to recover.
Watch him in the video above to meet him today!
Sponsor Deepak to help us give him the best forever sanctuary at Animal Aid for we hope many years to come.

    I was crying seeing him first in the video. So massive injuries, oh my god. Thank you for helping him and giving him a chance.

    Animal aid is doing an amazing work, many people don’t care about animals and keep hurting them. I’m so happy India has this kind of place where animals are loved and cared for. Every video of yours made me cry like a baby, my love for animals especially dogs is infinite. I strongly support this work and we shall work together in future. Keep going Animal Aid, you guys rock. <3

    Thank you for saving this boy. He must have been in terrible pain and yet he lifted his head to nuzzle the man who was carrying him. Is it possible to get wheels for these dogs that are unable to walk? I am proud to be a monthly sponsor for your wonderful organisation.

    These videos are difficult to watch, but thank you Animal Aid for having the patience to wait until the animal is healed and happy before posting it. Knowing that it has a happy ending, makes gory part bearable to watch. That said, I am in awe of how loving your staff is towards all the animals. I am a monthly donor and sometimes send a little extra when I can.

    I have recently learned about your organization and just donated for the first time.. so excited to be able to help! I’ve been eager to help the street dogs of India since I was 11 years old visiting India, my native country with my parents. Even then my family was surprised that I was brought to tears by the animals rather than the people that seemed to be in need. It’s in my blood I guess! Thank you for all you do!

    I read your site and am so amazed at the wondrous miracles you do for these poor animals. How people can be so cruel to God’s creatures breaksmy heart. You all are God’s angels on earth. I will be donating $50 this first time and will try to donate monthly. I only donate in the USA, but after seeing how you keep them until the end if nobody adopts them, I am proud to say you are my first foreign donation. I wish I could help ohysicalkt, but this will have to do. God Bless you and the animals.

    Is it better for your organization for us to donate by Pay Pal or to mail in a check? Blessings to you and your team for the care and compassion you give to God’s creatures.
