"At first, I was a little afraid of dogs," Balu told Open Road India. "Now this is my life, I cannot leave this. I will keep doing this forever."
In addition to driving the ambulance, Balu takes care of sick dogs and cats in his home, dressing their wounds and giving them medication. To fund the operation, Balu says, he charges pet owners around 15 cents a mile to drive their animals to the doctor.
