Rescuing a dog

Rescuing sick and injured dogs constitutes a crucial aspect of our work, and we receive numerous calls for such interventions. While it is rewarding to save these animals, some rescues are undeniably heart-wrenching, especially when we encounter dogs with broken backs and legs after being struck by speeding vehicles.

Additionally, certain rescues pose significant challenges, necessitating our team members to collaborate with local communities in capturing sick or endangered dogs. Despite the difficulties, these efforts have resulted in several successful rescues. We invite you to witness some of our triumphs below!

Rescuing Dogs

Screaming in Agony

Black Tea experienced a harrowing collision with a speeding pickup truck, the impact being head-on as he raced with his friend. Regrettably, neither of the vehicles involved in the accident bothered to stop. The elderly monk responsible for Black Tea had to carry him off the road.

Remarkably, Black Tea managed to escape without a broken leg or, even worse, a ruptured spine. Our local veterinarian lacks the necessary X-ray equipment, so he strongly advised us to transport Black Tea urgently to a specialized veterinary facility located 100 kilometers away. Before embarking on the journey, Black Tea received anti-inflammatory and pain medications to alleviate his suffering.

Ignored and Paralised in Torrential Rain

We found Panda lying paralysed in a big puddle on the edge of the road in torrential rain. If we hadn’t been called out to rescue another dog we would never have seen this poor suffering dog whom everyone passed by. Worried he might bite due to acute pain from severe injuries, we muzzled Panda and gently lifted him onto our pickup truck.

We knew Panda’s injuries couldn’t be treated locally and we’d need to take him 100ks to our special cases vet with x-ray equipment. We transferred him into our car where he could lie comfortably during
the long journey.

Dragged Under a Speeding Car


We got an SOS call from a local cottage hospital saying a badly wounded dog was lying in the grass outside their hospital in the pouring rain. The dog seemed to be unconscious and was unable to move.
We quickly arrived at the spot. Upon examination, we discovered a severe wound on her back and injuries on her legs which indicated she’d been dragged under a car.
It was Sunday and our vet was closed. However, he responded to our calls and advised us what medication she’d need to alleviate her pain until the next day when his surgery would be open.
We transferred her to our Healing Centre where she was made comfortable for the night.

Feral Dog Trapped in Steel Girders

Our Outreach team achieved a successful rescue mission by saving a distressed dog afflicted with a horrific case of TVT (Transmissible Venereal Tumour). This suffering terrified dog was discovered amidst a pile of stacked steel girders and was in critical condition.

The dog we called Port was securely captured and taken to the vet for examination before being transported to our healing center. 

Collided with  Careless Joy Riders

We received an urgent distress call regarding a dog injured in a traffic accident. This incident involved reckless teenagers on a motorcycle colliding with the unfortunate animal.

Both the adolescent and the dog we now call Fufu sustained injuries from the impact, with Fufu enduring a severe spinal injury. Our team responded to the scene with profound care and empathy.

Feral Family Trapped and Netted 

We stumbled upon a heartwarming scene behind our local 7-Eleven store: a family of two adult dogs and their three adorable puppies.


Ensuring the well-being of this furry family presented a unique challenge because they had a habit of wandering perilously close to a bustling road, putting them in constant danger of traffic accidents.

Distemper Sufferer Trapped and Euthanized

An urgent call from a concerned teacher led Lin, our Outreach Manager, to the school where they found a severely wounded dog in distress. The team suspected brain damage, possibly due to distemper. They skillfully captured the dog and took her to a vet, confirming her positive distemper status with irreversible brain damage. Due to her intense suffering and declining health, the difficult decision was made to euthanize her to end her pain.
