We are delighted that we have been able to give some donations to AAU very recently to help support them with their incredible rescues and post rescue care and attention for the animals. Here is the latest news below; and as you can see at the end, AAU are recruiting staff at the moment – think about applying if you are an Indian resident; working with all the animals must be so rewarding !
Rescuing and healing injured animals and inspiring people with happy endings is the thrust of Animal Aid Unlimited’s ongoing mission to help animals and contribute to the worldwide compassion revolution for animals.
Cruelty cases are painful to share, but Animal Aid is deeply committed to stopping cruelty in Udaipur by reporting it to the police and involving the media when possible. We are deeply proud that last week Deendayal Gora–one of our most cherished team leaders–received an award from the most senior members of the Udaipur police on Rajasthan Police Day, recognizing his vigilance in reporting animal cruelty cases for Animal Aid.
10 amazing rescues your heart will never forget
One more day and most of the animals you’re about to meet in this rescue compilation video would have been dead. Thanks to your support, Animal Aid’s rescue team was there to climb, wade, jump, run and hoist to make sure THIS would NOT be the animal’s last day. You’ll want to hold your hand over your heart as you watch these animals in the most ghastly problems get the help that saves their lives just in the nick of time.
Please donate, because for some animals, Tomorrow is only possible with help
1st All Women First Aid Training Team
In this month’s First Aid Training batch, we welcomed our first ALL WOMEN TRAINEES TEAM, hailing from West Bengal, Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka. Each have substantial experience with animals, and they’re so enthusiastic and bright as they head into day 5 of their intensive week-long training.
They’ll return to their communities ready to build teams of rescuers, follow safe, effective treatment protocols, and with new skills enhancing their handling, assessments, record keeping and wound dressings. They will be able to give rabies inoculations, treat animals for pain, identify when a vet is needed, and care for animals when there is no vet available.
Please go to our website to apply for training if you are a resident of India and already rescuing or helping street animals.
Puppy trapped and drowning deep in sewage line rescued
This puppy’s mother frantically paced back and forth at the mouth of a covered sewer line but she couldn’t find a way in. When our rescue team arrived we could faintly hear a puppy’s fading whimper. We too had trouble finding an entryway. Finally we found a rock slab we could hoist up but the puppy was still deep in the tunnel. We had no choice but to send one of the team knee deep into the sewage water, bent over and wading through it to rescue this little one on the verge of giving up. When our rescuer emerged, the baby was collapsed. We brought him back to the Animal Aid hospital so that we could thoroughly examine him. He was exhausted from fear and anguish. But as soon as he rested and ate, Barney bloomed before our eyes. Watch this furry family’s reunion at the end of Barney’s very busy day. He won’t have trouble sleeping tonight!
For little ones who get into all kinds of trouble, please donate.
Celebrate the Care-givers: Udi Bai
Udi Bai Gameti is a tiny person with super-human strength and an ability to read the minds of animals. Udi Bai knows if a dog will eat from her hand but not from a bowl. She can lift dogs twice her size with the ease of a footballer and the gentle handling of a mother (which she has perfected through her son and daughter and the thousands of animals she has helped here.) She spreads her love among dogs suffering from traumatic wounds, mange and every illness in between. Energetic but soft-spoken, Udi Bai expresses what we consider serious love for the animals.
Improved Isolation Ward coming soon!
Many of the dogs we rescue are not only injured, but often sick and need to be isolated from dogs who are simply wounded. Dogs carrying infectious diseases will soon get a boost to their moods–and therefore, a boost even to their ability to heal. We’re building a new Isolation Ward for dogs and puppies, with improved ventilation, more space, and where staff will be able to treat runny-nosed patients in a more organised environment.
The new Isolation Ward is scheduled to open 1st August at a cost of around USD $15,000.
Please donate to support this vital improvement.
New hoist is an enormous help for large animals
If a cow or bull is unable to stand, they have only a few days of life left. Their stomachs fill with gas and they usually die from bloat or other complications. But when we get them in a standing position with a canvas belt for support, there is a chance they can gradually regain the ability to stand, and we can turn the saddest story into recovery. We are immensely grateful for the gift of this hoist from Kiranmal Savensukha Charitable Trust–which is a huge help to the caregivers, who have previously had to lift the cows using the strength of their own backs!
