|In the video (below) about rescuing two puppies from a deep well, you might take a look at the little unexpected character innocently minding his own business at 1.05 minutes into the video. It’s a round brown mouse, who doesn’t even look up from her preoccupations when Pushkar pulls in close the first frightened puppy. People write to us regularly about the animals in their lives. Whether they’ve found a stray kitten, or an injured crow, or upset a family of mice in the basement, or a squirrel who’s been hit by a car–we all become more sensitive learning the heroics ordinary people go through to save an animal’s life. Sharing such stories helps us keep our eyes and hearts open generally, to all animals everywhere. If that little creature hadn’t looked so peaceful in that deep well, we might have tried to bring her up too!
Saved from starvation, puppies rescued from well
Two naughty angels must have been so engrossed in playing that they didn’t realize they were heading straight for an open dry well. In they fell, dropping 60 feet, but because their fall was broken by several feet of garbage, they didn’t break even a single bone! Neighbor kids heard them crying and cheered on our rescue team from arrival to the puppies’ dizzying reunion with their Mommy. These darlings would have died of starvation and thirst without rescue.

Dear old Baloo couldn’t even lift his head, but he wouldn’t give up
Neighbours noticed a dog sleeping in the corner of their small yard, but then realized he hadn’t moved for hours. When they approached, he didn’t even stir, and that’s when they realized he was horrifically injured. His ear was shredded and the tissue all around it was swollen, and then they could see an enormous wound in his stomach. Hundreds of maggots roiled in the wounds. When we bent to pick him up, we found that the precious old sweetheart had no strength even to resist, even to raise his head. We hurried him back to the hospital and began the laborious process of removing the maggots, and his brave effort to get well began. Meet adorable old Baloo now. He’s just irresistible.

Maude’s eyes sparkle at last
We are currently experiencing problems with this video.
Will add and publish if we resolve. Mark – WAV.
A deep wound on this old girl’s stomach threatened her life. When neighbors noticed blood on her side as she lay on the ground they called us to rescue her. She seemed to consider slipping away from us, but soon relaxed and allowed us to scoop her up and bring her to the hospital. We could see that the wound flap would heal well with sutures, so we sedated her, thoroughly cleaned the site and stitched her up. Maude’s eyes started sparkling as soon as she felt better, and seemed to say thank you. Your caring donations made her rescue possible. Please donate.
Celebrate the Caregivers: Vinod Meena!
When paravet Vinod Meena started working in Animal Aid two years ago, we didn’t have a Street Treatment program yet. We wouldn’t have dreamed that in such a short time a newer member of staff could master the skills to gently handle animals who are often frightened, right out in the open, where dodging our care is on the mind of many of our outdoor patients. But Vinod has an incredibly soft touch and wins the trust of his patients with grace and speed. He is great in interacting with neighbors, too, teaching and encouraging them to do all they can to help, too. Through this program of prevention and treatment, where the animals are kept in their own environments, Vinod has saved the lives of hundreds of patients and supported their care-takers in helping their neighbourhood animals.
