Saviour for the animals
Balu, a resident of Pune in Maharashtra, always knew that he wanted to help animals but could he not figure out how. So after saving money for over 10 years, he bought a van and turned it into an ambulance meant for taking homeless and injured stray dogs to veterinarians for treatment.
Now Balu does not only drive the ambulance, he also takes care of sick dogs and cats by bringing them to his own house and treats them for their injuries and gives them medicines. Some pet owners also give their pets to Balu for taking them to doctor. He also keeps five to six stray dogs at his house — some with broken legs and paws — who don’t have anywhere else to go. However, he sometimes feel disappointed because not everyone appreciates his work and service for the homeless animals.
The Logical Indian appreciates Mr Balu’s noble effort to take care of those homeless pets who don’t have their own voice. State of animals in a rapidly urbanizing India is a cause of worry. People like Balu and NGO’s have taken the responsiblitiy of taking care of the animals. Let us not wait till government intervenes, let us step up and do out small bit in making the lives of animals better. Even as we do, Balu shows the way how it can be done.
