Courageous Dog Rescue

At the very end of the day, just as we were leaving the Center, we recieved a desperate call from Ingrid S. Ingrid has been in the Auroville area for many years, and as a devoted and passionate animal advocate has helped countless animals through rescues and sterilization programs. She called us as she was defending a young dachshund from being stoned to death by a group of extremely drunk men.

The terrified dog had been tossed from a car by her previous family and when she began being beaten by the men took refuge beneath Ingrid's mo-ped. Ingrid, who is not a large woman, bravely stood against this group and told them that they were not to touch the dog. Since we also do not have a secure way to transport dogs, we arrived also by mo-ped to find that Ingrid had managed to disperse the crowd and keep the dog with her. We immediately began working to develop trust with the dog, who was still very anxious.  After about half an hour we were able to pick her up and hold her wrapped in a sheet and a sack on the back of our vehicle.

We were very fortunate that we were trying to transport a very tame dachshund instead of a full-sized feral one! We took her to the Center, where she is staying in one of our newly enclosed areas for incoming dogs and adjusting to the routine. We are putting in all our efforts to find her a good home with a family that will give her the love and attention she needs! If you are interested in adopting her or any of our dogs, please contact us for more information.
