A charity I have been following for a long time is Animal Aid Unlimited
. Like most charities, it's run entirely on donations. This charity runs out of India and many connecting countries and is basically the only form of animal rescue and care they have over there. This group of people work tirelessly around the clock to help animals in need, they live and breathe for this charity.
Now why do I support a charity on the other side of the world and not per say one over here?
First, I support many charities in my own country and community.
Second, I support this charity because in many countries, India especially, the laws in place to protect and care for animals are practically non existent. Just think for a second the conditions some of the humans in that country have to deal with, now take that and apply it to the animals. Dogs are constantly being attacked and killed for fun, abandoned, tied up to one post their entire lives with the rope slowly embedding itself in their neck, getting stuck in traps, getting hit by cars only to have severe injuries that will slowly and I mean slowly, kill them. Even in a country where Cows are considered holy and sacred they still face abuse too. You name it, it's probably happened.
The work these people do is mind blowing, the video I have added to this post is one of their worst case wounds but there are many close behind. The people don't just give up on the animals either -they literally do everything in their power to save even the most unlikely of lives. That's something that really stands out to me, many charities are quick to give them the needle, but Animal Aid Unlimited wants to do everything they can first, and in many cases (like Kalu's story) it has proven to be a good decision.
