Life for a street dog is hard, to say the very least. It helps, however, when kind people like Mrs. Alhuwalia care for and feed them. Mrs. Alhuwalia contacted the Guardians of the Voiceless when one of the dogs she cared for, Chandu, was hit by a car — a dog she only found because she cared enough to look when he didn’t show up to eat.
Guardians showed up looking for the wounded dog, but unfortunately, he’d wandered off. They worried how long an injured dog could last on his own. Thankfully, they received another call from a man who was passing by a busy road who reported seeing a wounded dog. Guardians went straight to the scene, Mrs. Alhuwalia in tow and found Chandu.
They carefully caught the poor boy, who was in terrible pain and thus incredibly nervous and scared. Chandu could barely stand up or walk. His leg was broken. He was given painkillers so the team could treat his wound, which at this point was infected and full of maggots.
Guardians have made an appointment for Chandu at the vet, to get his leg examined. Unfortunately, things aren’t looking good at the moment as Chandu might need an amputation. However, as they always do, the Guardians will do all they can.
Mrs. Alhuwalia kindly agreed to hold Chandu for a few days while he recovers, but Guardians are still looking for a more permanent foster home or a forever home for Chandu. The poor dog will need several months to heal and will require dedicated care. He needs your support.
The Guardians will keep everyone updated on Chandu’s case. In the meantime, if you’d like to donate to the Guardians of the Voiceless, click here.
