Balu doesn't just drive the ambulance, but also takes sick cats and dogs to nurse them (he had learnt how to administer injections and dress wounds, by hanging around professionals) till they are healthy again. Plus, Balu's also fosters several stray dogs, some with broken paws or terminal illness, and helps animal shelters when they're  filled to capacity.  

Balu charges 16 rupees per kilometers for his pick-up and drop service from the dog owners and NGOs, to earn his bread and butter.

Even though Balu has become a local hero amongst animal lovers, not everyone's an admirer of his work. "A lot of people love what we do, but not everyone
appreciate the work that we do for the homeless dogs, which are often
seen as a nuisance," Balu shared in an interview.

Here's a video by Open Road India about Balu and his ambulance service.
