    Shilpi Biswas

    from Pune, Maharashtra


Ace is a 1.5 year-old Saint Bernard we rescued from the slums of Koregaon Park. We found him severely underweight and with a terrible skin condition. He has bumps and bruises all over the body and a mix of dermatitis mange and fungal condition. Since he was rescued in October, the rescuer and my friend, Shilpi has been working towards improving his weight and tending to his skin. His bruises bled for over 20 days and he also got a fever almost every other week. His blood tests hinted at a kidney infection with pinworms and blood in his stool.

Ace has troublesome hind legs and finds it hard to climb stairs. His skin condition is currently the priority and is on supplements and medication for the same. We have held off vaccinating him for the same reason. His skin condition leaves him with very foul smelling skin and requires a bath every five days. He is highly contagious and hence needs to be isolated from other dogs. He also had an abscess which took over 3 weeks to heal. He has a tear in his vein that brought on some bleeding and had to be stitched up.

Shilpi has been running a homestay for dogs in Hadapsar, Pune for 4 years now and rescuing animals since she was 12. Owing to the kind of round-the-clock care Ace needs and because of his contagious condition, she has not been able to accept boarders and fund her rescue activities. Ace's medical and dietary requirements are a strain on her finances and she has already spent close to a lakh in medical and food expenses for Ace.

Any monetary help would be a huge relief for her as the priority is now to ensure Ace recovers and recovers well enough to find a good forever home, free of the physical and mental trauma he was retrieved from.
