The world can be a dangerous place for a small puppy, especially if they don’t have a kind guardian to watch out for them. Unfortunately, this is the case for many dogs born onto the streets across the world. In the U.S. alone, there are around 70 million homeless dogs and cats, of which only around six to eight million will be brought into shelters and then only about half are adopted into forever homes. The statistics are harrowing, and sadly, they are not much better in other parts of the world.

Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue organization in India, is hoping to change these statistics for the better by rescuing stray dogs in need and helping them to find forever homes.

The little puppy in this video is a shining example of truly remarkable work that Animal Aid Unlimited does. This poor pup wandered his way into a tar pit and was stuck fast, however, a kind boy took notice of the puppy and called in Animal Aid to help. It took four baths with special soap to rid the small dog of all the tar, but seeing his happy, wagging tail afterward makes it all worth it! Now all this little guy needs is a loving pet parent to make sure he stays away from harm in the future!
