PETA founder rescues puppy
Ingrid Newkirk arrived in Mumbai for a visit to Peta India, when she saw a puppy injured with acid burns on her back. She immediately took the puppy in her arms and rushed her to PETA India’s office for medical treatment.
The dog was in pain for a while but she never lost her sweet temper. She always seemed comfortable sitting in her favorite spot on a large faux –leather armchair and being surrounded by the loving staff of PETA.
Now, the puppy has recovered from her burns. PETA family named this adorable puppy “Hershey.” She is living at an animal sanctuary while she waits for a perfect family to adopt her.
Hershey has made plenty of new friends, from the human caregivers she loves to shower with kisses to the canine pals she runs and wrestles with. She’s even developed a “reality TV” habit. She loves to watch videos of other dogs on YouTube! Here she is playing outdoors with some of her new friends.

Hershey was just one of the millions of stray dogs who struggle to survive on the streets of India. They scrounge for scraps, sleep in doorways and under bridges, and frequently suffer from mange and other contagious diseases. Just like Hershey was, many of them sleep without eating food, are hit by vehicles, or are intentionally abused. Recently PETA India worked to expel medical student who tossed a stray puppy off a roof.
PETA India is addressing the root of the homeless-animal disaster by going into villages and sterilizing, neutering, and vaccinating community dogs as well as treating them with ivermectin, a heartworm preventive that also addresses parasites, such as mange mites. And they’re using high-profile celebrities to promote the adoption of desi, or native, street dogs.
