We got a call on our helpline to rescue a puppy whose leg had been severed after being hit by a train. We found him hiding in a hole, afraid and in excruciating pain. His leg was completely broken and almost torn off just below the shoulder. His paw was dangling by a thin piece of flesh.
Despite the unfathomable pain he must have been in, when our rescuer reached out to him, he started to wag his tail. And his precious little tail continued to wag throughout his entire rescue. This little boy was so full of hope and trust.
Back at Animal Aid, we brought him directly in to surgery to amputate the infected stump. In just 2 weeks after surgery, little Spirit had made a complete recovery.
One cᴏmmented:”This just makes me want to sob. I can’t imagine him being in such bad pain and falling into that hole, being all alone and scared and confused, unable to get out, unable to get help or food or water. Poor poor baby. No animal in the world deserves that.”
A YᴏᴜTᴜber ᴜser cᴏmmented:”This video made me cry. I’m happy they saved him and fixed him up, but him crying in pain being touched and picked up really got me to cry and I don’t cry easily. But seeing animals suffering and saved makes me cry. Even some people think I don’t care, I do care it’s just I don’t cry easily. Animals in pain make me cry, like this one. I’m so happy they saved him!”
Anᴏther replied:”I have watched other organizations who rescue animals in need…but nothing I have seen compares to the sincerity of love you all feel for these animals, I’ve never seen that anywhere else and it is amazing. Watching the videos posted when an animal is rescued restores some bit of hope in me that there still are good people in the world. Best of wishes in all you do…”
