Street Animal Rescue

Dharamsala Animal Rescue runs a rescue program for the thousands of animals living on the streets of Dharamsala

Every day we respond to calls on our helpline to come to the aid of animals injured after being hit by a vehicle, to severe wounds, illnesses, burns, etc.. – Dogs like Rangeela.
Rangeela was only 4 month old when she was rescued and near death due to a life-threatening wound infested with maggots. Watch her miraculou recovery that was only possible due to generous animal lovers like youl

Most cities across India don’t have helpline, a hospital, or a shelter for suffering street animals. In those places, animals must suffer without any help and possibly die slow painful deaths. At DAR, we work to end the the ongoing suffering of our homeless community dogs.

Below is one of our first success stories

Sheru’s Story

Injured Sheru

Sheru recovering after amputation

Sheru learning how to have fun again

Sheru was approximately 8 weeks old when we received a call that he had been run over by a car. He leg was completely smashed and we needed to do an emergency amputation. He is such a sweet guy and we all fell in love with him. His recovery was quick and soon enough he was coming on our daily hikes with the rest of the dogs. Sheru was lucky enough to be adopted by a nice monk from the Sarah College where he now attends classes with the students, hangs out at the women’s hostel, and gets taken on walks to a river where he can swim!
