Shasha - The Girl With The Broken Tail


Shasha – a petite brown mongrel with yellow eyes that lives at the end of a street. She lives in a high culling area but fortunately, her factory took heed of our advice and made the effort to keep her within their premises. She was just spayed by us in mid August this year and we see her weekly still her workers know us well too. :)

A few nights back, we were as usual reaching Shasha’s factory when we noticed her excessively licking her tail and realized that her tail was infected and swollen. We checked with the security guard and a few workers present but they were not sure what actually happened. We believe it to be an industrial accident, looked as if the forklift went over her tail.

We went back the next day for little Shasha. The workers could not find her at first and the factory premises were big. It took more than an hour to locate her but the workers really put in effort to search for her as they wished to see her get medical treatment too. When we finally got hold of Shasha, we realized that part of her tail was already gone as it was slightly shorter (she had a long beautiful tail initially) and we hope she did not have to go through too much pain.

Over at the vet, Shasha was running a fever from the infection. The vet also mentioned she is rather thin her sudden weight loss was due to the injury too as she had in fact put on a bit of weight after her sterilization. The vet advised slight amputation and she had to be warded for at least a couple of days.


We visited Shasha a few days later and she was looking good. After Shasha finished her course of medication, we brought her back to the factory and she was hopping around in delight! She is rather shy with strangers but familiar with the workers and well loved by the factory. They kept thanking us for helping her.

Shashas case might not have been that life-threatening or a tear-jerking rescue but we strongly believe in trying our best to help every street dog that needs medical aid. Our volunteers who have been quietly running our PID (Project Industrial Dogs) for years and who faithfully walk the streets almost every other night, are tirelessly working towards the same goal as many other AWGs (Animal Welfare Groups) and independent rescuers to see less strays on the streets, through active sterilization.

If you will like to help us cover Little Shashas medical bills and/or help other street dogs, we will be most grateful. Please email us at noahsarkcares@gmail.com be it donation in cash/kind, volunteering or fostering/adoption. Thank you!
