A lot of stray animals are dying in the street because of owner’s negligence and maltreatment leading them to hunger and severe injuries. Without the care of humans, some of these animals will simply give up life and wait for their last breath to take. Like this dog found by Animal Aid Unlimited at the construction site pit in India whose face had been entirely destroyed by maggots.

When they found the mongrel in the hole, his entire face was infested with maggots and part of his skull was already exposed.


They named him Kalu, he had almost decided to give up on life, but when the rescuer showed him care, he responded with a strong will to survive.

This is how dreadful Kalu’s face looks like when they found him, he had a large wound with live maggots feasting on his flesh.


Though the organization is a veteran in treating severe wounds, Kalu’s injury was one of the worse and a candidate for euthanasia. But this canine’s strong spirit radiated that made the shelter people gave him a chance at life and treated him.

Animal Aid said, “His face was severely wounded and infested with maggots. His recovery is truly one of the most awe-inspiring and miraculous recoveries we have ever seen.”

They applied powder to the wound to kill all the maggots…


And sedated him to thoroughly clean the facial surface and bandaged him to prevent infection.


Three days had passed, Kalu was fed for the first time, somehow he still had difficulty to eat.


On the fifth day, one of his eyes revealed itself, which they thought he already lost. The swelling on his wound also reduced dramatically.


Kalu’s recovery boosts the morale of animal care people as they continue to treat his wound for three months.


And after three months of intensive care, this how Kalu now looks like.


This brave mongrel has completely recovered and became the star at the shelter.
