Deep, abandoned wells that once provided access to groundwater are common in India. It’s also common for animals to fall down them and become hopelessly trapped, unable to scale the crumbling sides and reach the top, which is many metres above them.
When this happens, staff members from Animal Rahat are often called on to perform dangerous rescues – descending 10, 15 or even 25 metres with little more than a rope to cling to and a net in which to catch the animals. A fall could result in injuries and even death. We rescue animals of all shapes and sizes – including dogs, cats, various wildlife and once even a cow – who are often confused, disoriented, scared or hurt. We must risk our own safety to save the animals, and we do.
US$5,000 (or about Rs 332,200) is needed to help buy protective climbing gear and equipment. Please consider making a donation in any amount to help Animal Rahat continue our life-saving work.
