“A mother’s love” is not only reserved for biological mothers. And it’s not just shared with babies. Anyone who has dearly loved an animal, whether an abandoned calf who thinks you’re his real mama, or a senior cat who barely tolerates your presence, knows the incredible joy of being needed like a mother. We’ve nurtured thousands of orphaned newborns, ill and wounded animals, often with intensive care. That’s what mothers–whether they are men, women, cows, donkeys or goats–give every day: intensive care and vital love.
Jewel got the surgery she couldn’t live without
This teenager puppy was badly injured after likely being snagged by a passing vehicle. The wound covered a huge area on her shoulders, and Jewel’s pain must have been excruciating. Infection was a grave danger. We hurried her back to Animal Aid, brought her into surgery to clean and stitched the wound back together.
Shy young Jewel emerged from her ordeal needing extra snuggles while her massive laceration became a tiny scar.Please donate
Colby took months to reveal his inner strength after a spine injury laid him low
This beautiful boy was hit by a passing vehicle and his neck and spine were injured. Our protocol for spine injury includes pain treatment, bed rest, good food, and gradual physiotherapy starting with passive movements and progressing to hydrotherapy.But with spine injuries, mobility is not guaranteed.
We were heartbroken that after a month of treatment, this sweetheart still couldn’t stand and our hopes started to fade. But Colby had hidden strength, and he just needed a little more time.

Jake is finding joy in his forever home!
Abandoned and adorable, Jake waited 9 long months before we found a loving family who could care for him in the way he deserved–with abundant play, multiple opportunities to exercise every day, and people who adore him.
Jake’s new family knows the importance of adopting a shelter or street dog rather than buying a dog from a breeder or shop. And they also know the value of unconditional, life-long commitment and love.
