Help is on the way
Whether a dog has been hit by a car, or a calf has fallen in a ditch, we are here to help the ownerless animals.
From early morning until past midnight, whenever we receive a report, our helpline team assesses the condition of the animal via video, and dispatches our rescue teams so that animals with the most life-threatening problems are given greatest priority.Report an injured animal in Udaipur
Our rescue teams
We have up to four ambulances on the road from 7AM to midnight, 7 days a week, with one on-call for serious emergencies during the night. We also have special teams dispatched daily to treat animals right on the street to avoid unnecessary hospitalization. Whether coaxing a frightened puppy or scaling down a deep well, our rescuers are highly skilled, gentle and determined to help in all situations. We cover the entire Udaipur city and several outlying villages.
20 new admissions each day
Our rescue teams respond to approximately 70 calls each day, out of which around 20 animals require treatment in our hospital. These are animals who require antibiotics for infected wounds, splints for fractures, surgery or intensive care for severely ill or injured animals. Length of stay ranges from just a few days to sometimes many months, such as for dogs with spinal injury. When fully healed, animals are returned to their neighborhoods where their care-takers can keep a careful eye on them.Learn more about our hospital
Changes in the season mean different struggles faced by the animals on the streets.
During the monsoon season maggot flies become abundant and wreak havoc on animals. Small wounds get easily infested with maggot larvae which can kill the animal in just a matter of days.
Puppies are born in winter, when nights become bitterly cold, making it hard for the weak to survive. The number of cases of ill puppies needing rescue dramatically increases.
In summer, when temperatures soar above 110° degrees F (43° C), life-threatening heat stroke and dehydration are common in injured or ill animals.
The animals in this video were all in desperate need of help. Local people who heard their cries called our helpline to make sure these animals were saved.
We got a call to rescue a very sick street puppy. We found him hiding in a plastic bag, and the moment we touched the bag he screamed in pain. He was desperately hungry so we could coax him out with biscuits, but every time we tried to touch him he cried out. He had severe mange and a deep wound on his hip that was causing him the shooting pains every time he moved.
Rescues at Animal Aid come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes the animals are friendly and other times semi-feral or scared and in pain. Often the community gets involved to help, especially with large animal rescues that can need up to 10 people. Rescue requires both compassion and some daring, and it’s often not easy. It’s the beginning of recovery and relief.
