Wounded dog lost on busy highway rescued

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

Cars whirred by at 80 km an hour. Cowering against the median, we found this gentle sweetheart confused, lost, and suffering from an excruciatingly painful ear wound. The wound had probably doubled in size because maggots had entered and consumed parts of his ear, inner and outer. Rescuer Prakash knew he had to move slowly and so carefully, to ensure that Ernest didn’t run into the traffic trying to escape. We brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital to start his treatment and with daily flushings and wound dressings, Ernest healed in about 2 months. What a joy it was to treat such a patient, loving angel. Because not only was he given comfort and love, so too were all his caregivers comforted and loved by Ernest.

Desperate street animals in India need help from each one of us. Please donate today.

    hi, you folks do an amazing job. i would love to see work like this all over the world. i believe one needs to start at the bottom and then heal all others on the way upward — abandoned babies, children, the poor who need medical care, etc.

    a dog healed me from profound schizophrenia when even mantras and ceremonies did nothing much except bring a little peace. i had him for 13 years, then had to give him away because i moved to a place where he would not have been accepted. he got a wonderful second owner, no problems that i know of. that was when i became aware that my mental illness was almost completely gone. !!! love does wonders, even if it is a dog.

    my dog was also part wolf, which some indigenous Americans explained to me was the reason he was so caring, unusually perceptive and intelligent. my Guru doesn’t allow pets, but when desperate to heal oneself, i had to make an exception.

    so my monthly donations are in his honor, the dog’s name is Blessing. and he was.

    thank you so much for your work, cathy smith
