Rescued and Rejoiced: A Tale of 8 Puppies Freed from Harmful Tar After 8 Hours

The puppies in Tirur, a region located in south-west India, were fortunately saved by a group of kind volunteers. The family of eight strays had been covered in toxic tar after a barrel of it collapsed over them while they were sleeping. After being stuck in the hazardous substance for eight hours, the puppies were struggling to breathe and required immediate rescue. Upon their discovery on the streets of Tirur, they were found completely covered in black tar, from head to tail. The poor pups were in dire condition due to the toxic exposure.


Upon witnessing the pitiful sight of the helpless puppies trapped in a sticky mess, a compassionate animal enthusiast by the name of Mr. Jaleel immediately sought the assistance of Humane Society International India’s animal rescuers. Devoting hours to the task, the team meticulously cleaned each little dog with vegetable oil in the hopes of removing the tar that had clung onto the poor creatures. Despite their efforts, the team found it difficult to effectively rid the puppies of the stubborn adhesive.


The compassionate act of the community in saving the puppies from a dire situation is truly remarkable. Without their intervention, these young pups would have succumbed to their plight. The puppies were suffering from exhaustion and toxic fumes due to being trapped in tar for hours. Sally Varma of Humane Society International India expressed her gratitude towards the people who rescued the puppies. It was heartwarming to see the use of vegetable oil to clean the toxic tar from the puppies, ultimately saving their lives.


The little dog appeared frail and feeble following several hours of being immersed in poisonous tar.


The compassionate efforts of HSI’s animal welfare officers saved the lives of a group of adorable pups who were covered in tar, even in their eyes, noses, and mouths. Thanks to their tireless work, these pups were able to recover and go back to nursing from their mother. Now, we can finally see their beautiful coats after they have been cleaned.


They also have the ability to move about unrestrictedly.


The pups were finally reunited with their mom thanks to the team’s hard work and perseverance in cleaning them up.


In just a couple of weeks, these adorable little puppies will be all grown up and ready for their vaccinations. Once they’ve had their shots, our team at HSI will make sure they’re spayed or neutered before sending them back home to Tirur.


It is a relief to know that all the puppies are now safe! What a remarkable feat it was to save them from the dangerous tar they were trapped in for a grueling eight hours. The rescue operation must have been a challenging yet heartwarming experience for everyone involved – from the rescue team to the volunteers. The efforts put into this rescue mission are truly deserving of praise. Such selfless acts remind us of the power of human kindness and empathy, and the importance of extending help to those in need – even to the smallest and most defenseless creatures. It is indeed heartening to learn that these puppies were rescued and given a second chance at life. Their story is a testament to the positive impact that individuals can make when they unite to extend assistance to animals in distress.
