How this beautiful girl managed to drag herself out of the road after being hit by a vehicle, we will never know. She suffered a serious spine injury that left her completely unable to bear weight. Not just for a few days, but for 8 weeks of physiotherapy and bed-rest.
We named her Dena, which means “to give” in Hindi. No matter how low she felt, when she couldn’t move her legs or her body, her eyes showered her caregivers with love. But her rehabilitation was so slow that we were losing hope. With full sensation in her toes, we expected her to try to stand long before she did.
But one fine day, 2 months after the accident with very little apparent progress, Dena was ready. All by herself, this brave girl stood and took her first trembling steps. And that was just the beginning of what has become a complete, beautiful recovery. Meet strong sweetheart Dena now!

Animal Aid India workers are the most wonderful people. They never give up on any animal they rescue.💖 The love they show all their animals. I’m sure it helps them to get well again. She is such a darling.”
A wᴏman wrᴏte:”Dena getting back up on her legs feels like a miracle. The result is part of your great patience and loving care, and part of Dena’s sheer will to live. Thank you, AAUI, for your dedication.”
