Forgiveness. In our rescue video about Bansi, whose legs were tied together so cruelly, what we marvel at is the way he gradually seems to let go of his fear of humans. There seems to be no anger in this gentle spirit. Only innocence and, somehow, the incredible will to carry on with an openness to give and take affection. How can we act in ways that are even worthy of such forgiveness? By loving them and doing all we can to protect them. As you do.
Legs tied together and left to die, Bansi recovered from unimaginable cruelty.
Bansi’s beginning was heartbreaking, but after his rescue, he is completely healed and he has flourished. When you see this video, the question that will probably fill your heart and mind is simply: why? Why would the owners tie this donkey so cruelly? What kind of mind was behind this? To what purpose? Sometimes the answer “ignorance” is not sufficient.
Immediately after receiving the call on our helpline we dispatched our ambulance and began the 2-month treatment process for Bansi. He has healed beautifully. He also happens to be adorable. He’s happy nowand the case has been filed with the police.

Adopt the love-bug Libby
Lovely Libby is a beautiful black Labrador mix who was abandoned after sustaining a serious injury to her front leg. Her owner made it very clear that he didn’t want her anymore. We offered to take her out of fear that her owner would abandon her or worse. Her leg had to be amputated, but wow, she’s running around on 3 legs as well as any 4-legger, and she has a lot of love to give.Calm and mellow, Libby loves belly rubs, food and being able to go outside often and examine all the plants and flowers. She tolerates other dogs, but she’s happiest around affectionate people. What a sweetheart companion she’ll be.
