Animal Aid Unlimited, India received a call about a street dog that had suffered a horrific attack and was in desperate need of help.
According to the caller, the dog had been attacked with acid and was severely burned.
When Animal Aid's rescue team arrived, they quickly found the dog. She was hiding behind a parked motorcycle, licking her gaping wound.
The acid had caused third-degree burns and destroyed the skin tissue down to the muscle.
The rescue team immediately transported her to Animal Aid's shelter, where she began receiving emergency veterinary medical care for her severe burns.
The stray dog was missing almost half the skin on her back. Rescuers weren't sure if she'd survive the trauma, but they decided to do everything they could to try and save her life.
She was sedated in order for her severe chemical burns to be thoroughly cleaned and bandaged.
In the days and weeks that followed, the poor dog weathered her recovery with a loving nature and the heart of a fighter. Her will to live impressed everyone.
After a month, rescuers began treating the dog's acid burns with honey in order to speed the healing process. After six grueling months, the dog, whom animal advocates named Honey, was well on her way to a much brighter future.
Watch Honey's incredible rescue and recovery story here:
Unfortunately, Animal Aid was not able to track down the person responsible for attacking little Honey and committing this horrendous act of animal cruelty. However, thanks to the organization's tireless efforts, Honey is now a happy, healthy girl. She will live out her days at the Animal Aid sanctuary in the company of other rescued animals.
Unfortunately acid attacks like this aren't unique to countries like India. There have been cases here in the U.S. as well in London, New York City, Los Angeles, Lancaster, Phoenix, and more. It is thanks to animal shelters and animal medical centers that these dogs get the care they need.
