This is without a doubt the most amazing dog rescue story I have seen in a long time. A huge thank-you goes out to the incredible team of rescuers who worked tirelessly to save the dog after it slipped into hot tar in western India and its body solidified.
The rescue took place in Udaipur, Rajasthan, and it began after a passer-by noticed the dog laying on the ground and covered in dirt and twigs. He immediately called the local team of Animal Aid Unlimited — a rescue center, hospital and sanctuary for injured and ill street animals.
The video below shows the rescue team from Animal Aid Unlimited as they start their work by slowly removing the tar from the dog’s body, as it lies on the dirt. The team uses vegetable oil to soften the tar coating, gently pulling lumps of the sticky substance away as it comes loose. The rescuers, who kept working for two days to free the dog, said the tar was “as hard as rock”.
