Drowning Dog Trapped Down A Well Rescued Seconds Before Giving Up

OK guys, sad dog video here. For the most part, it gets better, but viewer discretion is advised for those who can’t bear to see a pooch in peril.

Footage has emerged of a drowning hound who’s eventually salvaged from a certain demise.

The video was released by Animal Aid Unlimited – an Indian animal rescue organisation whose mission is to rescue and treat the un-owned street animals of Udaipur, who’ve become ill or injured – and through their rescues, inspire a community to protect and defend the lives of all animals.

According to their website, the organisation states:

By providing a phone number someone can call and a shelter who will help and save, we are inspiring action in the community.

Action that though small at first, maybe just a phone call on our helpline, is the first step for someone on the road of becoming the person that animals desperately need.

But back to the dog in question – they wrote:

We got a call to rescue a dog fighting for her life after falling in a deep well. She may have been swimming for hours before a villager saw her and called our helpline.

She was quickly losing her strength and could barely hold on to the sides of the well.

Thankfully, Animal Aid Unlimited were able to get to her just in time!


Founded in 2002, their work focuses on the vital moment when a resident of Udaipur sees an animal who needs help, and stops to help. Taking action is the pivotal experience which can change everything for good, they say.
