Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue center, hospital, and sanctuary for injured and ill street animals in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, provides care for thousands of hurt and sick animals each year, even those who would otherwise be left for dead or euthanized. There is no case too big for these individuals to take on, and the story of Missy, a street dog with a massive cancerous tumor illustrates just that.

Missy was found hiding under a car with a giant tumor that was clearly causing her a lot of pain.

Rescuers attempted to lure her out with treats, but the fearful dog was wary.
