Dog Near Death Rescued by Kind Souls in India

Many wonderful animals in third world countries live terrible lives of desperation.

Three cheers for Oliver the Dog, whose rescue came just in the nick of time.

And a curse upon those who left Oliver to starve to death.

Daily Mail

Lying on the ground and close to death, flies had already started to swarm around puppy Oliver’s body.

But just two months later, the pet was brought back to health after being rescued by by a charity in India.

Animal Aid Unlimited in India found Oliver laying underneath a car with flies all over his body after they received a call that a dead dog had been found.

However, when they got close to the puppy, they realised he was still alive although he was struggling to breathe.

A rescuer then managed to lift the dog up from the ground and wrap him in a blanket to take him for urgent medical help.

It was then discovered his body was dangerously cold and he had to be hydrated with hot water bottles and IV fluids.

Oliver eventually opened his eyes, but even then it was touch and go if he would survive as he had to be helped just to stand on his four legs.

He was then diagnosed with a raging respiratory infection and had to be treated with antibiotics.

But after two months of treatment and care by the staff at the charity, Oliver was soon back on his feet, running around his enclosure and playing with his carers.

Animal Aid Unlimited then posted a video on their Facebook page charting the dog’s progress from him being discovered close to death to his current state.

There are more pictures of Oliver at the source linked above.

      • That would explain things. Been trying to rack my brains and I don’t recall any such charity to animals in Latin America, South America, among rapeapes etc in the usa.

        Africa is Africa, so no sort of charity there. Middle East? Nope. Never seen much in the way of pets unless it’s some crazy ass status symbol. Both places are all fired up to sex up their livedtock. I was appalled at the way animals were treated in Korea. Don’t recall one way or the other in Japan. Same for India, but after awhile certain things become routine and you no longer look for them once you leave home

  1. Street dogs are a sure sign of living in a shithole. I do not like street dogs at all. All dogs and cats in such places are never sterilized, both domestic and street living animals. Health care to street dogs and cats is zero, no vaccinations etc. Groups of misguided animal lovers frantically try to give away the non stop puppies and kittens at the market. They stand all day for no money doing this. Why do they not instead sterilise their dog or cat?
    I say, this is all upside down. Sterilise the dogs and cats. Kill all the street dogs and cats, if no fool wants to adopt them. Never dump unwanted cats in wild paces where they will kill, and kill and kill. 20 million cutesy wild Australian animals are killed every day by dumped domestic cats gone feral. Use the money saved to fix the holes in the streets and footpaths and collect rubbish from the ground in the shithole country.
    Street dogs are pests and feeding them or saving them is stupid, in my opinion. VB and I might have found one thing to agree on.

    • When the local Walmart decided to clean out the feral cats living in the woods behind, there was a big protest. Several protests, in fact. Periodically, the local government cleans out nests of cats living rough. Dog lady was accosted by the police while feeding some cats the other night. Once they knew she wasn’t burglarizing the business behind which they live, the cops departed. It seems like many local businesses have cats living close by in a wooded area. I like them. They are charming. I don’t like to see dogs on the loose, however. Dogs need a human to take care of them. All of my dogs were strays that somebody dumped and then I took in to live with me.

      • There are plenty of groups, including animal care organizations, that practice “catch & release,” where they trap feral cats, vaccinate and neuter them then set them loose again. It helps but you can’t get all of them.
