A garbage heap almost caused the death of four baby mice who got covered in tar. They were so coated in dirt and slime that only their eyes could move. Fortunately, Animal Aid Unlimited in India came to their rescue after receiving a call. A dog had also fallen into the tar and alerted humans with its loud wails. The team found the dog and discovered its puppies in terrible conditions. The younger brothers were also stuck with the tar, and one puppy had plastic garbage and pebbles attached to it. All the puppies were confined and in distress due to the tar. The children who found them were confused, frustrated, and anxious.
Two of the puppies were covered in tar, leaving only their eyes visible. However, their misery was eventually overcome with love and patience. The rescue operation was carried out in phases, starting with the discovery of two pups who were immediately transported to the shelter. Although they knew the puppies had a mother, they were unable to locate her until the following day. The volunteers dedicated themselves to the meticulous task of removing the tar from the puppies, which took many hours to complete. In addition to tar, one dog was covered in plastic waste. Animal Aid Unlimited’s volunteers carefully removed stones, sand, branches, and other debris from the puppies’ bodies with their hands. The tar had hardened around their bodies, making the process even more delicate.
Once the solid waste was disposed of, the puppies were given a thorough cleaning with specialized chemicals that effectively removed any excess fat. Although there were some minor traces of the harmful chemical on their fur, the majority of it had been eliminated.
After rescuing the first two individuals, two more were discovered in comparable or even more dire conditions. One of these new victims was covered not only in mud and stones but also plastic waste. The heroic effort to save these young people spanned over three days.
For over 72 hours, the team dedicatedly tended to a group of four adorable pups who were feeling exhausted and defeated after their harrowing experience. But as soon as they got their paws on some tar, their spirits lifted and their energy returned. When their mother finally returned to reunite with her litter, she was delighted to find them free of the toxic plastic and eagerly waiting for her love and nourishment. It’s truly heartwarming to witness these little ones bouncing back from such a challenging ordeal! Even though they still bear traces of tar on their coats, these resilient puppies are enjoying every moment with their loving mother.
This rescue was quite a challenge and caught us off guard, but we’re thrilled to report a happy ending. Don’t hesitate to spread the word and share this news with your loved ones!
