Drowning puppy saved from sewage tank in the nick of time

 In Blog, Rescue Stories

It’s not uncommon here in India to see wells, drains, pits and tanks of one kind or another left open with no barrier or warning signs where any child or animal could fall in and be completely unable to get out on their own.

We received a call on our helpline for a puppy who had fallen into an open sewage tank (for human waste).

The puppy’s sorrowful moans echoed against the walls as Ganpat heroically let himself be lowered head first into the septic tank in order to save this puppy’s life. You’ll see in this video, the puppy was literally just a few moments from drowning and death.

In the days after the rescue, his fearful heart began to melt, through love.

    The reason I give to Animal Aid India is because they try to save animals that people here in the USA would just “put to sleep” as unable to be saved. These Animal Aid India volunteers and workers have terrific heart! Our Pope says that saving the planet saves lives and these people live this truth daily! Prayers lifted! I wish I was a wealthy American who could buy a few trucks for this group, but we are a disabled couple living on a small income. We give what we can.

    It is really so wonderful to see such heartwarming films with good outcome. I am full of admiration and fond feelings for the people who dedicate their time and affection to help animals in need. It is a joy to share such great info with friends and family, and I urge all who can to support this good work with donations and various actions in their everyday life.
    Our daughter is planning to study to become a vet here in Norway, and she would also like to travel abroad to see what can be done for animals elsewhere.

    Keep these videos coming and load them up to YouTube, its a great way to spread the word of this wonderful organisation. So impressed with the way some of the rescuers put their health and life at risk for a discarded animal and its a wonderful feeling inside to see these animals alive and kicking after their convalescence.

    Just donated. I think you guys are super-heroes and the most wonderful human beings for the loving care and healing you give to so many unfortunate animals, often at risk to yourselves. I’ll never forget the dear pup that had been covered in tar – all that moved were its eyes – and you patiently removed the hardened tar over a three day period with vegetable oil. And now this lucky pup rescued from death in a sewer. Bless all of you.
