Soft painful barking of a puppy was what i could hear from a distance as i was busy watching my favourite tv show at 2.am on Monday 27th January. This bark was what i waited for since the last 5 days because this cute little pup used to come up till my door and bark so that i come outside and give him food , thrice a day was i doing this, but this time it was a painful bark, as i ran outside to look for him , i saw him stuck on the spike railing above my door.
It was a very painful yet shocking site , i ran to wake my brother up, he took him out and brought him inside. At that moment all i could see was his pain and bleeding and his soft murmurs, i just could not see his pain, my hands and feet went cold, a whole stream of tears were running down my cheeks and with trembling hands did i tried to pet him. It was after 5 minutes that I realised its not too late and i can and will save him.
I ran and got the first aid box , took out pyodine gauze and bandages, while he was still in pain i cleaned his wound site and tightly wrapped around his tummy bandage and cotton, i could see his liver sprouting out of the deep wound. With trembling hands did i kept warm blankets around him. With a syringe i gave him brufen to relieve his pain and ORS and water to replace the fluid he had lost. At that point i felt he was better, but i was not.
The emotional ride which i went through for the next 48 hours need a whole other blog for it, to cut it short i called every possible vet at that point and asked for help, only 2 responded to which they agreed on coming the next morning , which meant 4 more hours to wait, every minute was critical for him and so it was 9 in the morning when a vet showed up and stitched his wound ,and now i could sleep and eat.
The next 4 days went by taking care of the pup i had to get him restitched again the next day and follow up with antibiotics, but i was worried for him as the wound was very deep and he needed proper veterinary care for the next 20 day.
I posted at every social networking site for help and then a fine girl responded and told me about Animal Care Foundation. I quickly called and messaged them at messenger and they responded back and asked me the details of the puppy, they assured me to pick him up the next day. I was relieved yet a bit happy that he will get proper care and attention, though i was not sure to give him away because of the mere attachment with him.
They picked him up after a day, and i could not say him goodbye because i was not available. I will not lie but i did shed tears again, but i was worried and wanted to follow him up. The next day i got to know that he was being taken care of very efficiently. He was cleaned and restitched.
So the next 4 days passed by and he improved. Still he is healing and i hope and ask you to pray for his healing aswell.
I am highly grateful to ACF and team for coming up and giving him right aid and attention, they are a blessing in karachi to give proper aid to hundreds of animals who were either kicked out of homes, brutally treated or harshly hurt and not attended to.
The soul purpose for this blog is for the awareness of the Animal Care foundation located in malir, they give shelter to poorly treated animals, be it blind,deaf, paralysed etc. Please follow them and call them when any animal is in pain and needs help, and with that you should donate as much as even 500 rupees, please do your part and help them give shelter to more animals who are orphaned and kicked out of houses, thrown pebbles at and stepped onto, crushed under cars by inhumane people, who should be hanged for being so evil.
I am so looking forward to meet the little pup, who was named ‘rabies’ by my younger sister, i would prefer ‘bruno’ after a sweet puppy i know and adore.
