Dog found unconscious in a field makes beautiful recovery
We got a call that someone had found a dog collapsed unconscious in a field. Half of her face lay in a shallow pool of water and we could not awaken her. We hurried her back to Animal Aid’s hospital and found that she had most likely suffered trauma to her head. She showed all the signs of a brain injury. It took several hours for her to gain consciousness, but even after waking up she was unable to walk.
Throughout the weeks that followed, she won our hearts with her trusting eyes and the brave efforts she made–a little more each day, to stand, to walk, to give and to receive love. Gradually, we could see changes taking place in her abilities.
After two months, look what Angela can do!
Donkey found hiding in shed with rope severing his leg
We found a frightened donkey hiding in a shed with a horrific injury on his leg caused by a rope that had been tied around his leg for many weeks. The tight rope had caused a deep wound that was severely infected, necrotic and infested with maggots and was so painful he couldn’t bear any weight on the injured leg at all. We could see how scared he was standing in the shed, but his eyes met his rescuers with incredible trust.
We feared we wouldn’t be able to save his mangled leg, but after several weeks of treatment, this gentle boy started to recover…
Baby goat drowning in well reunited with her mama
We got a call that a baby goat had fallen in a well and was quickly losing her strength. We found her barely paddling and struggling to breathe. After rescuing her from the well we were so relieved to find that despite being exhausted and traumatized from nearly drowning, she was fine. More than anything, this beautiful girl wanted to be back by her mama’s side. Watch the reunion.
Collapsed lung and head injury, train accident victim’s amazing recovery.
We found him next to the tracks, his nose split in two, breathing with great difficulty and very disoriented. When we brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital, our vet found that he had a collapsed lung which is a very life-threatening condition. We had to place a tube in his chest to allow his lung to expand and function normally again, suture his badly injured nose and upper lip and stabilize him with fluids and other medications. With so many life-threatening conditions, we were so worried that we may not be able to save him despite our best efforts. But this brave young boy had an amazing spirit and triumphed against all odds.
