​We’ve seen some astonishing dog rescues, but none quite like this…

After falling into a pool of hot tar in India, a dog was left unable to move. The hardened tar was so heavy that it forced him to fall to the ground. If it wasn’t for a passerby who saw him struggling and called Animal Aid United for help, this poor pup would most certainly have died. Luckily, rescuers rushed to the dog and found a heartbreaking the scene.

The dog just lay their motionless, in pain, and terrified. They had to act fast and free the dog of the tar or he wasn’t going to make it. It took the Animal Aid United team of volunteers over three hours of massaging vegetable oil into his fur until he finally broke free of his tar cage. The entire rescue and his wonderful recovery is all caught in the video posted below. I’m so glad these good people took the time to work on the dog, and rescue him to safety.

After he recovered, Animal Aid neutered and vaccinated him. What a miracle pup!
