Animal Aid Unlimited (AAU) is an animal rescue organization in India.
Nearly 4 months ago, AAU rescuers found a black-and-white dog hiding in a hole in a construction site in the city of Udaipur in southern India, with a horrible injury to his face. Unattended, the injury had become a gaping hole, infested and eaten by maggots.

Under the loving care of the good people at AAU, Kalu the dog not only survived, he grew back a face and a healthy left eye!
Here’s AAU’s account of what happened:
We found Kalu lying in a hole at a construction site in Udaipur on October 7, 2015. His face looked like a bomb had exploded between his forehead. The horrific gaping hole was infested with maggots that were literally eating him alive. As soon as our rescuers Ganpat and Kalu Singh brought him back to Animal Aid we decided that euthanizing him would be the best decision. But as Kalu stood there on the examining table, something in his spirit stopped us in our tracks and we knew we had to give him a chance.
So we began treatment on the most heartbreaking wound we had ever before seen.
We put a powder into the wound that kills the maggots and gave him IV fluids while we waited for the powder to do it’s job.
A few hours later we put Kalu under sedation and began to remove the dead maggots, debride and clean the wound.
Over the course of the next 3 months, Kalu astounded us with him strength of will, his incredible healing and all the love he had to give.
Here’s a video of Kalu’s miracle:
God bless the kind folks at Animal Aid Unlimited!
