NEW DELHI — Stray dogs in India are a very common problem but one organization has taken it upon themselves to rectify the issue, one helpless dog at a time. Animal Aid Unlimited is a rescue centre, hospital and sanctuary for injured and ill street animals, and they have recently released a short film to shed light on the work that they do through the rescue of one dog in particular. The video, which has garnered a lot of positive attention online, shows how they rescued a very ill homeless dog and completely transformed its life in just two months.
The start of the film shows the dog on the street nearing his death and barely resembling a canine, as his mange skin condition had rendered him bald. The rescue organization approaches him and brings him to their shelter where you see the dog is very timid and wary of humans. Despite his hesitation, the rescue group proceeds to feed and pat the dog until he begins to trust humans again.
The film then leaps to footage from two months later where the once stray, sick dog is now completely transformed into a healthy canine with a full body of fur and an entirely different personality. Animal Aid Unlimited is hoping that sharing this film will help spread the message of the increasing problem of street dogs in India. Watch the heartwarming video below, which has been watched over 1.2 million times since being posted on September 24.
