Puppy rescue.

This pup was reported by Krrish to Roshan.

It had a bad wounded leg and crushed bone, and it was hiding under a car in Salisbury park.

The two boys rushed him to Dr Tulpule in Salunkhe Vihar who administered first aid and bandaged his leg.

Pup was kept under observation but at the same location with his mom and other siblings.

Ishika and Rishi our volunteers helped in daily visits to the vet for bandaging and administering medicines to him for about a week.

Unfortunately the wound did not heal and started to rot instead.

The vet then suggested amputation of the leg.

After amputation it was with a foster for about 20 days till recovery.

During the fostering period by Anshu, Yash, Akshat, and Riya from the Pooch Project helped in following up and daily dressing of Crazy Coffee.

The pup is completely alright now.

It got adopted but is back as the adopters cannot manage it.

It has adapted to his physical disability and is like any other puppy, but requires a little extra love!

We are looking for a nice loving family who will give their love and time to Coffee Crazy .

Cat Rescue

Helping Hearts does not restrict its activities to human beings; we try to do our best for our animal friends too. Some time in ...October 2020 , we were informed about a severely injured cat by a kind man, Mr. Sadiq Dastagir, in Camp, Pune. .....We sent our volunteers, Retam and Rishi, to find the cat, which had disappeared. About 10 days later it resurfaced and was caught after nearly an hour’s struggle around midnight. The cat had a horrible wound in its foreleg which was festering with maggots and gangrene. Dr. Tulpule, a well-known vet decided immediately that amputation was the only solution and proceeded with it without wasting any time. The cat is now hale and hearty, albeit one leg less, and is back in it’s original location where his other siblings live.

Helping Hearts funded the entire surgery as well as provided the cat rescue equipment.
