Transformation of an old and injured street dog

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

Dazed, stumbling and badly wounded, precious Edith almost seemed unaware of the presence of her rescuers. We found her walking along the side of a busy road, obviously confused and disoriented. Thankfully a passerby had seen her and called on our helpline to report her injury.

When our rescuers gently put a blanket over her to pick her up, the only indication that she knew the difference between no blanket and blanket was a brief nervous wag of her tail.

After bringing her back to Animal Aid we saw just how deep and horribly infected the wound on her back was. She was severely dehydrated and looked like she hadn’t eaten in days. We really couldn’t believe that she had been able to walk at all, and indeed, after her first treatment she immediately fell asleep and went on to sleep almost continually for the next several days.

This quiet sweetheart must have been through many ordeals and close calls in her long long life on the street. She has been a mommy many times over; you’ll see that she’s already been old for a long time. But she revealed, after weeks of treatment, that her sparkle had definitely not flickered out. Meet beautiful, elegant Edith today.

    You are all doing so much to alleviate the suffering of so many of the ‘forgotten’ animals on the streets of India. Your love and dedication to their cause totally warms my heart. I also know that through your work you are slowly changing the consciousness of the average Indian person on the street towards the plight of these voiceless and innocent creatures. God bless all of you for your wonderful work. I am so happy that I found out about your organisation and know that my donations are making a real difference.

    What a beautiful ending to see Edith who was so traumatised and confused and exhausted trying to survive on the streets against all odds until you wonderful angels came to her rescue. It is utterly heart warming to see what you do at AAU with so little resources but your love and compassion itself heals these beautiful innocent creatures. They all adore you and show such love and appreciation for the ove and care you give them. I love you all at AAU. You do an amazing job for these helpless animals who would otherwise die never knowing love and compassion. God bless you all!
