In Gujarat the temperature has crossed above 40 degrees Celsius and is set to touch 46 degrees Celsius in several areas.
As the temperature continues to soar and dries out water sources in Gujarat, veterinary doctors and animal rescuers are picking up birds and animals to provide them assistance.
Doctors at an animal hospital in Ahmedabad, who works closely with the non-profit Jivdaya Charitable Trust, provide water and medicine to dehydrated birds and animals.
Doctors at the Jivdaya Charitable Trust have treated thousands of birds in the last few weeks, adding that rescuers bring dozens of birds every day.
