It is estimated that India has over 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets. According to the Global Alliance for Rabies Control, the Asian country accounts for 35 per cent of humans dying from rabies in the world. Needless to say, Indians are desperately trying to come up with a way to deal with the canine over population. Although, the Indian government has not addressed this issue, residents are taking manners into their own hands. More often than not, this means dogs are killed in inhumane manners. Others are abused and tortured. The Animal Aid Unlimited is a non-profit organization founded by Erika, Jim, and Claire Abrams-Myers, from Seattle. The family made India their permanent home 15 years ago after they realized the country did not have any hospital or sanctuaries for animals. Today, this vegan family rents 4-acres of land to use as a haven and treatment facility.He was terrified of humans, refusing to get near them. This made his rescue difficult as the volunteers tried to catch him while he evaded them every step of the way.
The pooch was shaking in fear. One can only assume the abused he endured in the hands of cruel people.
The wire had cut past the coat and into the flesh. The animal winced in pain. It is unclear how long he had lived with that around his neck.
The pup was sedated for the procedure. The vet and volunteers were unclear just how deep the cut was.
Winnie was given food and medical attention. He was also cared in a way that allowed him to slowly trust people again.
Staff cleaned the area, ensuring an infection would not occur.
Today, Winnie lives among the 400 animals and the 50 staff and volunteers from around the world, in the sanctuary in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Winnie is one of the 3,500 animals rescued by Animal Aid Unlimited every year.
