Having founded the Indian animal charity, Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA) 10 years ago, Rachel Wright, British Veterinary Nurse, had seen some pretty horrific sights, but the day TOLFA rescued three puppies that had been attacked with acid shocked her to the core.

The pups who were around 3 months old had, like thousands of other dogs, had been born on a street in the city of Ajmer in Rajasthan where their best chance of survival was to try and live in harmony with the humans around them. We can only speculate why on the 30th June 2015 someone decided the innocent pups were no longer welcome and took the horrendous step of throwing acid over them. Thankfully a good, dog loving Samaritan – of which there are many in India – called TOLFA as soon as they saw the pups in distress.
