Street Dog Was Rescued From The Brink Of Death, But Look At Him Now.

It is estimated that India has over 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets. According to the Global Alliance for Rabies Control, the Asian country accounts for 35 per cent of humans dying from rabies in the world. Needless to say, Indians are desperately trying to come up with a way to deal with the canine over population.

Although, the Indian government has not addressed this issue, residents are taking manners into their own hands. More often than not, this means dogs are killed in inhumane manners. Others are abused and tortured.

The Animal Aid Unlimited is a non-profit organization founded by Erika, Jim, and Claire Abrams-Myers, from Seattle. The family made India their permanent home 15 years ago after they realized the country did not have any hospital or sanctuaries for animals. Today, this vegan family rents 4-acres of land to use as a haven and treatment facility.

Animal Aid Unlimited was called to help this canine who was roaming the streets of India.

He was terrified of humans, refusing to get near them. This made his rescue difficult as the volunteers tried to catch him while he evaded them every step of the way.

The canine had a wire noose around his neck, attached to a wooden stick.

The wire had cut past the coat and into the flesh. The animal winced in pain. It is unclear how long he had lived with that around his neck.

The wire noose was blocking blood circulation, hence, making his head swollen.

The pup was sedated for the procedure. The vet and volunteers were unclear just how deep the cut was.

Despite the fear of not knowing what laid ahead, volunteers said Winnie "seemed to know something special was about to happen to him."

Winnie was given food and medical attention. He was also cared in a way that allowed him to slowly trust people again.
