Man Saves Money For 10 Years To Buy Ambulance For Stray And Homeless Dogs

07 Jul 2016 | by Prekshita Patwa | Posted in: Wag News

What is kindness? Does it need you to be well read and educated? Or does it just need you to have a big heart and the passion for helping others. We want you all to know about Balu, a unique human being who has fought against many odds to reach where he is right now.

Balu is so dedicated to animals that he’s spent the last 10 years saving up enough money to buy an ambulance, which he will use to save stray animals in need of urgent medical care.  He’s no veterinarian, but Balu has learned what he needs to handle a life or death situation, and now he and his wife have already saved the lives of a number of ill and injured dogs.

Balu wasn't sure what he wanted to do, just that he wanted to help animals. “In the beginning, I was a little aFraid of dogs.  But then when I began working with them, I got to understand,” Balu explained.  “I decided that I’m not going to do anything else – whatever I do has to be with animals.  Now I am married, and my wife is an animal lover, as well.”

In addition to driving the ambulance, Balu takes care of sick dogs and cats in his home, dressing their wounds and giving them medication. To fund the operation, Balu says, he charges pet owners around 15 cents a mile to drive their animals to the doctor.

He earns a living by charging a minimal amount to pet owners and the NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) for transport and boarding.  "I keep 5 to 6 stray dogs at home — some with broken legs and paws — if there's no room at shelters," said Balu.

Some support Balu’s work rescuing injured and stray dogs from India’s streets, but others are not so appreciative. He continues to do what he believes these dogs deserve in spite of the negativity.

As readers of a dog loving platform, I am sure everyone here appreciates and respects what Balu is doing. HATS OFF!
