Rescue of a shy and badly wounded street dog

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

We got a call on our helpline from a caring resident of Udaipur, India, that a street dog in the neighborhood had somehow become badly injured and needed urgent help. When our rescue team arrived, we found a beautiful young male dog, otherwise in good condition, who had a deep and infected wound right on the back of his head. We suspect that the wound may have been caused by a dog bite that had become infected.

It was immediately clear just how much pain he was in. Even when he came close to our rescuer Ganpat to eat the cookies we offered, he kept shaking his head every few moments in agitation. Flies had collected around the wound which added to his discomfort.

He was hungry and wanted the cookies, but he was very shy and would only come so close. Ganpat tried to come close enough to at least pet his head, but he kept moving away. Because street dogs are generally wary of strangers, we were worried that if we didn’t catch him soon, he could bolt and that would mean that he wouldn’t get the urgent treatment he needed to survive. After catching him with a net, we brought him back to Animal Aid to begin his treatment.

After 6 weeks of treatment, meet Jay today: a healthy, healed, neutered and vaccinated young boy who would not be alive today if not for rescue.

Please donate for beautiful street animals in India like Jay whose lives depend on us when they are hurt.

    I love the way you men work with theses precious dogs, that others dumped and didn’t care what happened to them. You men have such a tender heart for these dogs. And a gentle side of you. That most men don’t have. I know women always have tender hearts towards these dogs. But it is very rare to see man caring like y’all do. keep up the wonderful work, it’s very rewarding to see. Thank you very much, and god bless you. I’ll be sending some money very soon sincerialy Kat
