Finding unity and bringing people with diverse opinions togetheris the need of the hour in our politically complicated world. But for most everyone reading this newsletter, we all share a sense of oneness. Animals keep bringing us together. Whether or not we’re vegan; whether we voted for this one or that one; whatever our colour, country or culture; we each love animals and hate to imagine any of them suffering. No single one of us has made Animal Aid the sparkling fountain of rescues it has grown to be. We’ve done it together, and from all corners of the world, speaking dozens of different languages, wearing sarees, sarongs, or skirts; wearing blue jeans or suits, we’re pooling our resources to help the beautiful beings all around us, flying a common flag.
Hiding, delirious and desperately wounded, watch the rescue of KC (the King of Cuteness).
We never know what to expect when a wounded dog is hiding in a sewer drain, but when they do that it’s never a good sign. Desperately wounded animals seek relief in the dark hidden places, but with wounds as serious as KC’s, the pain won’t go away.
KC’s wound was filled with maggots. He threw his head around wildly, almost delirious with pain.When our rescue team arrived, he tried to get away, but, exhausted, he could only take a few steps. Once we removed the maggots, cleaned and snuggly bandaged his head, we found KC to be absolutely kingly in his cuteness, so loving that even before he took his first bite of food after the sedation wore off, he gave us one of those big-nose camera kisses.
So that’s what KC stands for. King of Cuteness, and you’ll see why here.

Adopt fabulous, fun-loving Foxy!
Beautiful Foxy is the biggest sweetie-pie you could meet! Playful and petite, she captures the hearts of all who meet her with her gentle nature and enthusiasm for life.
Foxy has a rare disorder that has fused her jaws closed. She can open her jaw just enough to eat semi liquid food that must be specially prepared for her, and biting is not possible for her. A young dog, Foxy sadly had a difficult start on the streets, struggling to find food she could eat and unable to defend herself. She has some scarring on her back which makes us think she might have been mistreated – in spite of this,she is incredibly trusting and loves to snuggle up to people.
Foxy is currently being fostered with another dog who she’s great friends with, and together they love to play and go on walks, where she will lay in any puddle she can find! Due to her difficult past, Foxy gets very attached to her humans and can become anxious if she is left alone, so she needs a home where someone is around most of the day. And that person will be as lucky as Foxy, who spreads cheer and love all day long.

Suffering silently, little Chauncy needed urgent help.
Getting worse at a very fast rate, this poor little donkey’s wound, filled with maggots, would soon kill him. During monsoon season, many donkeys are let loose by their owners to forage for grass, but their owners may not see them for weeks at a time. Luckily, a passing driver saw the gaping wound and called us to the rescue. We found a very deep hole filled with maggots – but we also found one of the most modest, sweet and loveable Beings we’ve ever met. We called him Chauncy, because it sounded formal and adorable, like him.
