India: Watch what it takes! A tribute to the loving caregivers at Animal Aid Unlimited.

I had a very nice e mail from Erika last week thanking me for putting the videos of the rescues by AAU (India) onto SAV.  They are more than welcome for promotion of their great work and I said this to Erika in my response mail.  (Mark – SAV)

So here is another couple of videos showing many of the excellent team at AAU – we know you will enjoy it and we hope that it will be a great inspiration to many the world over to get out and do anything they can to help animals.


Watch what it takes! A tribute to the loving caregivers at Animal Aid Unlimited.   



Bringing joy to desperate street animals in India: the vision and the hope – you can see Erika in this video: 



You can see the video of AAU work which we posted recently by clicking on the following link – there is also a donation link here so that you can support their rescues if you wish:

We are very lucky that the Aspinall Foundation sanctuary, where animals are bred for release back into the wild, is located less than one hours drive (from home) for us.  We have seen the gorillas there several times – all destined to be released back into the wild as you can see in the following video – SAV.



A Tribute To The Indian Animal Rescuers and Saviours At ‘Animal Aid Unlimited’.

Regarding our recent post of some of the amazing rescues by AAU in India; we have below a tribute to these wonderful rescuers from Venus.

You can see a lot more amazing rescue videos by just typing ‘Animal Aid Unlimited’ into the ‘Search’ box upper right on this site – then you should get access to all our old posts and videos relating to the rescue work of AAU.


For the team AAU of India.


If you look at the videos, you can feel a spontaneous admiration on two things:

On the ability of the rescuers to become even with very serious rescue processes. They deal with enormously difficult cases, which in Europe would only be undertaken by qualified forces, e.g. Fire brigade or animal rescue teams. That is the one thing.

The other is the expertise of veterinarians. It is felt that they can save almost everyone. Where are such veterinarians in Germany? We should send some to India, so they learn. Alone when my cat has diarrhea, usually takes a week, until my doctor gets the handle. And the Indian veterinarians even heal with deeply burned skin, which is destroyed to the muscles.

But there is also something else: the incredibly fast ability of the animals to overcome their shock, their trauma, their physical and mental injuries. We humans, in the similar case, would probably never recover from it.

But for this, all animals are capable, not just the victims in India. Animals have a strong mental world, have patience and courage when they suffer. And as soon as they are freed from their suffering, they forget it much faster than we humans and look forward to their new, happy life.

Such abilities we humans have no longer, or perhaps never had anyway.

We can learn a lot from animals.

And also from the innovative working methods of the AAU activists in India.
