Heartwarming: a team of rescuers work to save a dog covered in tar

The opening of this video looks like something from a horror movie. We see a dog lying helpless on the ground after falling into some hot tar at the side of a road. The tar is slowly drying, encasing the poor animal until it can no longer move. Death seems almost certain…

But fortunately someone found the dog and alerted the team at Animal Aid. They arrived on the scene and knew exactly what to do. It took a long time, but they managed to free the dog from the tar by rubbing it with cooking oil…

I know I breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the video. At first it didn’t look like the dog would make it, but it’s amazing to see what a few dedicated people can achieve. Watching those kind people gently and determinedly rubbing the tar off the dog’s body is absolutely heartwarming.

Three cheers for the rescuers!
