Dog Rescued From Tar

April Livingston | May 20th, 2019

A group of workers in the town of Suwalki, Poland thought it was just another day on the job. But then they heard a sound that made them worried. The noise was coming from a wooded and remote area in the distance and it sounded like a dog. Not only that, but it was an urgent bark that kept going and seemed like the dog was calling out to someone for help. The workers decided to investigate and followed the sound. It led them straight to an urgent situation: the barking was coming from a little dog that was stuck in a puddle of tar. The dog couldn’t move and the workers tried to free the little pup, but couldn’t get it out. So, they contacted a woman named Joanna Godlewska from the Niczyje Animal Foundation and she rushed to the scene.

When she arrived she couldn’t believe her eyes. It’s believed that the little dog was dumped there or just a stray and was looking to stay warm. So, he laid down in the tar that had been illegally dumped and then became stuck. It’s not clear how long he had been there, but it’s clear they arrived at just the right time—he was losing hope. Joanna called the fire department for assistance and the group worked carefully to free the little dog from his predicament. The group cut away the dog’s fur very carefully and then used cooking oil to loosen him from the tar and lifted him out. Then, he was taken to the vet clinic to be treated for exhaustion and get a bath to remove the rest of the tar from his fur.

There were some minor injuries to his face, but otherwise the dog was in good health. Since being freed from the tar he’s received several more baths to remove all the tar from his fur. He is getting better each day and will be ready for adoption soon.
