Rescue of a wounded dog found dying on the side of the street

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

Our rescuers found him lying on the side of the street, terribly wounded and broken. The side of his head was being eaten by maggots and his body had given up all hope. We could tell that he had been lying in the same place for many hours if not days, and we believe that if we hadn’t rescued him right when we did, that is where he would have died.

We rushed him back to Animal Aid Unlimited’s shelter and began his treatment: IV fluids to treat his dehydration, antibiotics for the infection and we applied medicine into his wound to kill the maggots.

In the following days our old boy grew stronger, he ate well, and his wound started to heal. When we rescued him he was also suffering from mange, a skin condition, and that too healed with weekly medicated baths.

After several months of treatment, you will have trouble recognizing this handsome fella who we named Major Sahib in honor of his incredibly valiant spirit.

Please donate for the intensive care of wounded street animals in India who, like Major Sahib, aren’t ready to say goodbye.

    You are doing an amazing job – what happens to these old dogs when they are back to health – do they live in your compound ?

    I will be in India in may snd would love to send some funds to you or to bring medicines from uk if that would help more ?

    tears came to my eyes when I saw how he raised his head to greet his rescuers, as sick and painful and he must have felt. Thanks for saving this dear soldier – what a hero he is, and AAU!

    Thank you so much for rescuing this beautiful old Dog; Major Sahib! It would have been terrible if he had been left on the street alone to die a horrible death. I think you are all incredible for what you do to rescue and save the lonely, unloved, injured and broken Dog’s. I hope eventually, that the whole of India will have amazing rescue teams like you at AAU. Every Animal deserves to live with dignity and without pain and suffering. I do donate and will again soon. Love and respect and God bless you all for the great work you do. Greetings from Scotland.

    I am totally amazed that these dogs don’t bite the people who come to their rescue. I can see from the videos the treatment and the loving environment,that you foster there for these negelectived creatures. If I lived near your sanctuary, I would be there to help in your efforts, and volunteer my time.I am disabled,so I can’t send money,I am very greatful for all you do.
